    Q:Does the echo blower/vacuum pick up oak leaves?
    by|Apr 8, 2024

    Answer This Question

    A:  Thanks for your question! ECHO Shred N’ Vac® units are designed primarily to vacuum leaves. The units are not intended to vacuum items such as pinecones, acorns, etc. ECHO recommends first operating the unit as a blower to blow the leaves away from the items that are not intended to be vacuumed into the unit.

        Q:I'm thinking of using this to vacuum blow in insulation. Do you think it will work? Or be to much for the blade to mulch
        by|Jun 26, 2023

        Answer This Question

        A:  Yeah so you want to blow insulation in a confined space with a gas blower? I don't think that would be very wise, you'd likely get carbon monoxide poisoning as well as anyone else in the general vicinity.

            Quality
            Just bought the echo es-250 yesterday from Home Depot. We are truly impressed with the echo. I also bought TRU advantage 50:1 mix in the red can starts like a champ. I didn’t use the power blend gold.

                Vacuum was awful and shredding was terrible!!!!
                It blowed really good but the shredding and vacuum feature was awful and barely could lift the leaves already blown. Assembly was awful and way to much effort to get it to lock

                  Great tool!
                  I bought this a few weeks back and I'm so glad I did. I upgraded from a cheap, electric Portland leaf vac from a discount tool store. Woah!!! What a difference! First, the Echo Shed-N-Vac, is 2-stroke engine powered vs the puny electric motor in the other one. Second, the shredding turbine has a metal plate on it to shred any accidental sticks or mulch it sucks up! Setup was too easy... minor assembly, add some mixed fuel, one pull on choke, next pull running.

                  Used once
                  Terrible quality and draw string broke after trying to start for 5 minutes straight. Wouldn’t recommend.

                    Disappointed
                    Bought this unit in March 2017 to use for vacuuming leaves in our driveway. I only used it 3 months a year and after 3 years, it developed 4 different holes in the plastic housing. This allowed debris to blow out and hit the operator in the face, hands and legs. We took the unit to an Echo service center but they said we used it excessively and wouldn’t fix it. Their 5 year warranty is worthless!

                      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.

                        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.
