You would have to pry this little puppy out of my cold dead hands, The joy of not being restricted by cords or batteries should speak for itself, add that enough power without being overly heavy to tackle 2 acres of manicured lawn and u have a winner Houston.

Excellent product
The blower feature works as stated and will blow debris away with ease. The weight of the unit is not a problem, even for a scrawny, 61 year old. As for the shredding attachment, the steel blade makes excellent size mulch out of leaves that can be re-cycled for later use in your flower beds. The suction feeding the shredder will pull chrome off a trailer hitch so pay attention when operating. As with any new power garden tool, it takes a little time to get used to the capabilities; once mastered, one will become a true yard ranger. Quality of the product will likely outlive me. Highly recommend.

I was hoping it would be a little more powerful than it is. The vacuum function won't pick up much at all. The leaf blower won't dislodge leaves that are even slightly stuck in the weeds.

Built to last
I've bought Echo equipment exclusively for the last 16 years for my landscape co. Couldn't be happier, it just keeps getting better.

Purchased as a portable vacuum.
Finally got out to try this out as a leaf vacuum. I did try it as a blower first. It performs about the same as my other Echo blower, which has the same motor. As a vacuum it performs well, and the leaves were not completely dry. I have two comments: 1) wear ear protection, and 2) I will add a strap to the blower itself, It was getting heavy after 10 minutes.
