Echo Blower - the only Gas Blower worth buying!

Pros:Everything , light weight, easy to start, cool color, and stronge power.

Cons:Really nothing, just make sure you color coordinate your outfit with the Orange Machine!

The Bottom Line: After 3 blowers even an electric blower, I finally found the perfect unit. Just make sure you use the correct gas mixture, and purchase the echo oil.


This blower is equipped with a 25.4 cc professional-grade engine that produces 390 CFM at 135 MPH. Easy to handel, it is also balanced for less fatigue for operation. It is a 2 cycle engine so it uses a 2 cycle oil mixture, preferably the echo brand oil, and mix with regular gas. It is better to purchase a 1 gallon gas can an mix 8 ounces of the oil with the gas so you obtain a 50 - 50 mixture. There is an extended Curved blower tube that enables rotational control and to help prevent arm fatigue. Also an Anti-vibration design which really helps to keep you steady while you work. The throttle has a cruise control so switch, it enables you to keep a constant flow of strong air, also you can adjust the flow manually with a control located under the handle. It has a very quick start with the pro-fire electronic ignition. There is included with the unit a 5 year warranty from the date of purchase, which is a wonderful feature.

Well let me start from the beginning, I first had a Homelite blower the worst unit I ever owned. It was hard to start, blew oil all over the place and did I say hard to start? It finally died, and then I purchased my next nightmare, a Ryobi gas blower. It lasted 1 year with a useless 3 year warranty; I returned it because it lost all it's power, ran very rough and blew oil all over me plus anyone else who was near me. The store who I returned it too (won't mention the H word) would only give me another one of the same model, so I did the return to find out that this 2nd Ryobi blower died around a year later with the same problem.
Wow, I guess my luck sucked for gas blowers until I went shopping to replace my 3 dead, oil blowing, hard to start, bad blowers, and noticed this orange glow from the corner in the garden center in Home Depot. I went over to check it out and saw this high quality,professional,commercial grade and cool looking blower. I picked it up and instantly I knew this was the one. It's a man thing with power tools and I knew this blower was going to be my salvation. It was a little more than I wanted to spend but I hit my piggy bank and purchased the unit, and rushed home to try it out. Well when I started this blower for the first time it was so easy I thought this can't be right, and when it purred like a kitten, I was in shock. I found my perfect gas blower!

It has been 4 months of perfect starts, no problems, blowing everything off my property and I've been enjoying every minute of it. If you're looking for a gas blower that does just that, look no more and go for the orange, Echo that is, and enjoy the moment !
