One has the hip mount throttle, and the other has the standard throttle. Same machine, different throttle control placement.

I only know of a model 755h and 755t. I have never heard of 755s.

I just found it on their site. It seems to be the same except for a smaller air filter.

755's are almost identical to 650's and 750's etc..

Echo has been changing the numbers around since the 650 and they all the same blower basically.

Good blower but not as powerful as the Redmax 8000 series.

Better than the Stihl 600 series though.

The PB-755 has the commercialGrade air filter and the PB-755S has the large capacity automotive style air filter.

Agree with air filter. Instead of the filter being top mounted, it has a different style on the side. Probably has something to do with emissions and where the different models are allowed to be sold.
