Echo backpack ordered

A little excited so I'm posting. I ordered an Echo 770H yesterday. Should be here soon. After using the same BP for 13 years now I decided to upgrade. Nothing wrong with the other echo but wanted something more powerful.

The old echo I have replaced the muffler, the carb, and replaced the flex part of the tube just due to age. Pretty pumped about getting something new.

Why not the still magnum. More power and way better on fuel. ?

I just like echo. All my pieces have always been that brand going back to 2000. They have all lasted and treated me well so no need to switch at this point.

Same here, we have tried other brands but were most satisfied with the echo's.

I can assure you the stihl magnum dosnt have as much power as the echo 770 I run both side by side daily during lead season.

This is correct^^^^^^^

The 600 is strong, the 770 is stronger.

Some people will think the brand they run is the best no matter what. I'm not like that I have stihl, maryauma and echo and fixing to have a Redmax blower... I go with which ever brand is the best in the perticar tool I need... And I'm not afraid to switch mower brands either

Guilty as charged! I like the way you think because that does make sense.

Same here. I will be switching brands of mower next time around. I run different handheld tools as well. Stihl and Husky mainly (Jonsered saws), but I will use whichever tool made by whomever, that works best for the job.

I'm an echo/shindaiwa guy, but I like Stihl hedge trimmers better than echo. It's the only piece of stihl equipment that I own. I just have not had good experiences with stihl in the past. I also bought a redmax trimmer a while back and I like it a lot.

Keep us updated on how the blower works out for you!
