Don't know anything about the Echo blowers other than the 755 and 770. If it starts and runs and blows as hard as you need it to that's about all you need to know.

Thats exactly what I thought, I am looking for something light but powerful enough (44cc) to blow clippings off decks and sidewalks after trimming

Just keep in mind that it's going to be of limited use for fall cleanups...not useless, but limited. But if the price is right and it serves your purposes then I'm not gonna recommend against it.

I use big backpack blowers...I've got 2 Shindaiwa EB-630s and I bought a Husqvarna 580 last fall...that thing is incredibly powerfull. I can blow clippings from 30 feet away!

Thanks for your thoughts, as for the fall clean ups I am not sure what I will be doing about that, but for now this fits my needs and for the price $150 starts 1st pull and mint condition I am jumping on it so to speak

Thanks, for my purposes its great. All I was looking for was something to blow grass off driveways and sidewalks when I finish. I am working out a way to mount it on my mower because I walk to all of my jobs right now and carrying it on my back is a PITA

Great job! You must have worked very hard to get that gravel down. It looks good.
