Echo pb-770, husky 570/580 bts or just a stihl br600?

if it's an all season use
go with PB770.
It has the backside air cooler in summer use, thicker padding
than Husky and it's back plate is as comfortable as any.

One thing that you should know is dealer prep is an important factor in getting any blower adjusted for out the door performance. That's the biggest issue and the sole reason why some people say the echo isn't what it is all cracked up to be.

With that said ...all the big blowers are very considerable for heavy leaf clean up.
