Does the vacuum bag disconnect easily from the vacuum tube to make it easier to empty leaves from...

Asked by Gatman December 2, 2017

Answers

Bag is connected with a collapsing nozzle that is held in place by Velcro. Easy on easy off. The bag gets heavy as it fills up. The shoulder harness doesn’t come with any padding. I bought a pad for a computer bag and it helped.

Dose the pipes and bags come with unit or a separate purchase?

It's all in the same box.

Can you pick up grass clippings with this vacuum?

Yes, but it would be very inefficient.

Is the shredder/mulching blade plastic or metal, Thanks?

This model is metal, easily replaced and surprisingly strong.

How long would it take to vacuum a lot size 66’ x 60’?

Asked by BlackLab14 August 20, 2018

Answers

My guess is about a half hour. Really depends on thickness of leaves, if you have to empty the bag, are you working around plants, are you aggressive in vacuuming or laid back, heavy leaves or thin light leaves

Would this work to pick up cottonwood "cotton"? We deal with massive amounts of the stuff

Asked by Bigdog May 26, 2017

Answers

Yeah I should think--it will vacuum up most everything.

How will the shredder handle Sweet Gum balls? They are extremely hard and I worry about burning the motor up.

Asked by Toby April 20, 2016

Answers

It doesn't, you need to blow the leaves into a loose pile that separates the gum balls or hickery nuts.

Best leaf vacuum
This is by far the best leaf vacuum I've ever owned! This did as good a job as having landscapers clean them up doesn't clog up like alot of electric models do!

The Echo ES 250 exceeded my expectation. This review is for the Vacuum configuration. I have only used it for one day. My research included Homelite, Husqvarna, Echo and Stihl. After reading numerous product reviews and the operators manuals, I settled on the ECHO ES 250. Pros: 1) Assembly was easy. Undo the knob holding the cover, slide the suction tube into the unit and with a slight twist, it locks in firmly in place. Same for the outlet pipe. Attach the bag with the velcro cinch. Add 50:1 fuel mix and go. 2) The ES 250 has 4 steel blades to chop up the leaves and small twigs. It does a great job. 3) Emptying the leaf bag is easy. Just release the Velcro, take the bag off the blower, unzip the back of the bag and pull the leaves out. 4) The cruise control is fantastic. Set the speed and you don't have to touch the trigger again. Cons: None Echo builds a good product. I purchased my first Echo Chainsaw in 1984 and it is still running today.

It works great as blower! The vac feature, I think needs some work. The impeller of the blower/vac should be made from a more durable material for me to feel comfortable using it, plus the exhaust is right at you in the vac orientation.

I've owned this product a little over 3 months now and am very happy with it's performance. I struggled with a few different things at first but after a few uses, I figured them out. The blower/vac is a little difficult at first to switch tubes but gets easier after you do it a few times. Its also the easiest piece of outdoor equipment to start and has started first pull every time. I initially. thought it didn't have enough vacuum power nor hold very much in the bag. After a few uses, I changed my tune. I was clogging both the bag and the tube itself. If you hover the tube near or above the leaves it picks them up very nicely, if you stick the nose IN a pie of leaves, it will clog. Also, while moving around with the bag on your shoulder, the bag is constantly moving meaning the neck of the bag is moving. If the neck of the bag is pinched whatsoever, the vacuum loses vac power so keep in mind to adjust the bag accordingly and it will pick up a ton of leaves. For a $200 price tag and the performance, I rate this 5 stars.

The blowing and vacuum functions are really good. I purchased a different blower first, but didn't find the vacuum to be any good and didn't like the set up. This was much more improved. The bag is easy to attach and stays attached. Once I figured out how to assemble the vacuum tube, I was all set. I like it. It's a little more expensive than I hoped to pay for a blower/vacuum, but I like the product.

My dad has owned and operated a lawn equipment repair shop for the better part of 50 years and swears by the Echo brand products. After reviewing all that was out there, I took his advise and purchased the Echo gas leaf blower vacuum. Echo builds products for life. This is a great product and performs as expected from a quality brand. Don't waste your money on the cheap stuff. Buy Echo!

Great blower vacuum. Gas powered 2 cycle. The vacuum tube is plenty long and eliminate fatigue. No more stooping over. The vacuum containment bag has a rear zipper for easy dumping of materials. The best feature is the metal impeller, fan. This blower vacuum mulches the leaves a twigs with no problems. Great tool for my area of Southern California, with water rationing this blower vacuum eliminates washing down the hard scapes.

Had this unit for a year and the debris bag wore a hole in it because there is no deflector flap at the end of the chute. Tried to defect it through Echo, and they told me that this is normal wear and tear and would do nothing but try to sell me another one that would obviously wear another hole in a year. NO THANKS!!! I have had several other brands of leaf blower/vacs and the debris bags have outlasted the units. My advice is to avoid this company if this is how they take care of their customers.
