Echo 770

I had some extra money and decided to buy a good blower for leaf season. The blowers we use to mow with are the tiny echo 265's...quite different than the 770.

At first pull, this thing gurgles like a monster! The power is incredible compared to the tiny 265! Blowing leaves was easy, it even blew around my weimaraner dog logs. Pretty impressed with it!


Just figured I'd share. Hope everyones season is going well.
