Echo PB-755 $399??

Just saw the Echo PB-755 blowers at my local dealer on special at $399! Ended up getting 2 of them to replace one old Echo 650 and a Stihl BR-600 that is on it's last legs.....

$399 is an awesome price on these blowers.....don't know if the price is the same everywhere or if it's just a local dealer special but you might check it out.

Will have to check it out. We were thinking about adding another large blower. Have always had good luck with echo equipment. Our BR600 is down on power a bit. Might just need a valve adjustment.

My dealer has the same, he said it is because the 770 replaced those models.

Yep. They're trying to liquidate old units before the end of the year.

That is a great buy. Those are great blowers. Hard workers and will last you a long time.

Update....got a chance to use the new PB-755's today and they are working out great....actually seem to have more power than our older BR-600's but that could be cause it is getting tired or maybe needs a valve adjustment? (HATE those valve adjustments BTW!!) What was Stihl thinking??

It could be the valve adjustment. It could also be that the Echo is 2 cycle and creates higher rpm making it "sound" like it's got more power. Either way, both are good blowers.

OK....took the BR-600 in and it did need a valve adjustment plus it had "excessive carbon build up".....needs almost $100 worth of repairs/maintenance.....don't think I'm gonna do it!

Dealer mentioned to me that quite a few scapers are getting fed up with the 4 mix blowers especially within the last year or so...
