Echo is a 40 years old and reputable brand for the manufacture and development of power equipments, both for professional and commercial usage. With a history dating back to so many years, you can trust the brand with closed eyes- you literally don’t have to do that.

What Makes Echo Different From Other Leaf Blower Brands?

The first and foremost is its long history of more than 40 years. Secondly, its products are designed to provide added comfort.

For example, traditionally backpack leaf blowers are thought to be stressful on the back. However, most Echo backpack leaf blowers come with padded backrests and shoulder straps, which minimize the stress on the back even after you have used the blower for a long time. Furthermore, the blowers are easy to start as well as come with comfortable handles. This further makes it easy to use them.
Last, but not the least, the Echo leaf blowers are certified low noise machines. This comes as a surprise as leaf blowers are traditionally believed to be very noisy.

Top 3 Best Echo Leaf Blowers

Now we know the advantages of the Echo brand, let’s have a look at some of the top backpack leaf blowers the company has to offer.

  1. Echo PB-770T – Best Echo Backpack Leaf Blower

Echo PB-770T Backpack Leaf BlowerThe PB-770T is made to offer sheer power and performance. No matter how many wet leaves you have, this leaf blower will blow it away in the blink of an eye.

The extreme power comes due to 756 CFM and 234 MPH. Also, the blower has a 63.3 cc engine, which is of commercial grade. The power also means that you can use the blower for a range of other activities.

For example, if it is snowing heavily, the PB-770T will clear away the snow in no time. Similarly, you can use it to remove dust from your home. However, be careful and remove other items from nearby. The blower won’t spare them!

You might be wondering that a blower with this much power will have a very short life as it consumes a lot of fuel. Well, you are wrong. The PB-770T comes with a 68.3-ounce fuel tank. This is more than half the capacity of almost every other gas-powered leaf blower.

Also, the blower isn’t very heavy. Although it weighs 28 pounds, yet it won’t stress your back even after you have used it for a long time due to the way it is designed.  The thing I love the most about this blower is the throttle location, which is on the tube. This allows you to use the blower hands-free. You can have your favorite snack while cleaning your backyard.

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • Fuel tank is 50% bigger than average backpack leaf blowers
  • You can use the blower hands-free
  • Starts easily with the first pull

Cons

  • Functions poorly at full throttle
  • Might require frequent maintenance

 

  1. Echo PB-580T Backpack Leaf Blower

Echo PB-580T Backpack Leaf BlowerThe PB-580T blower is full of features designed to provide you with the utmost convenience.

There is a 4 point vibration reduction system to minimize the risk on your back and wrists. In order to ensure the long life of the machine, it contains a leaf guard, metal wear ring, and an air filter to prevent any dust or leaf debris from entering the blower. There is also a padded backrest along with the usual shoulder straps that provide added comfort.

All these convenient features don’t compromise the performance of the blower. The PB-580T comes with an airspeed of 215 MPH and an air volume of 510 CFM, which is impressive.

In order to provide you precision while blowing leaves and for other tasks, the PB-580T comes with variable speed control feature. This allows an individual to adjust speed levels as per convenience or tasks to be carried out.

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • 70 DB noise level which isn’t very high
  • Reduced vibration as compared to other blowers
  • Padded backrest along with usual shoulder straps for easy carrying

  1. Echo PB-755ST 63.3cc Backpack Blower

Echo PB-755ST 63.3cc Backpack BlowerThis is one of the most powerful backpack leaf blowers in our list. It quickly clears away your lawn and that too effortlessly. Therefore, the leaf blower is equally best for small and large areas.

The power of the blower is due to the 63.3 cc engine, 651 CFM, and 200 MPH. These features give PB-755ST extreme power and efficiency. It also means that you can use the blower for both residential and commercial purposes. The power is enough to blow away even large rocks.

The body of the leaf blower is also strong, unlike the previous blower that we reviewed, i.e. (Echo PB-580T). The strong body makes the product durable enough to be used for more than a year.  What is even more impressive is the 5-year residential and 2-year commercial warranty.

The leaf blower has a transparent fuel tank, but that doesn’t help much as you will be carrying the machine on your back.

What differentiates the blower from most of the other Echo blowers is the flexible tube, which gives it an advantage in extremely cold conditions. You can now use it to blow away the snow without an inch of damage to the machine.

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • Strong body makes the blower durable
  • Flexible tube protects from cold weather conditions
  • Starts easily on first pull

Cons

  • The carburetor might malfunction easily
  • Not very comfortable on the back due to it’s design

 

These were the top three backpack leaf blowers of the Echo. Each one comes with varying features. Some are extremely powerful while others exhibit sheer comfort.

No one blower can be called the best. It all depends on your needs. Therefore, keep your requirements in mind before getting your hands on any of the leaf blowers.
