    How many hours do you guys get from your handhelds?

    Can you break it down?

    (for example, trimmer lasts 500 hours,15 mins per job = 2000 jobs)

    I have some Echo 260 series that are getting close to 1500 hours on them....now that is the engine part, never had a failure on engine. Backpack blowers PB650 may to close to 1000 hours. These are units that have been purchased over the past 5 years.....the older models last even longer.
