    Employees so-say that tail-gate on crew truck came open while going down the road and the two backpack blowers bit the pavement! :dizzy: Interesting thing is...neither heard it fall open! One blower survived as it flew into the ditch and only has scratches but the other, which is a Efco BP162 went under the equipment trailor. Tore up the housing pretty bad but the engine runs good yet. Costs more to piece it back together so bought a Stihl BR600 to replace it, not that it wasn't a good blower but the dealer SUCKS! Wondering if anyone knows of someone using Efco blowers that would be in need of a good motor, otherwise thinking about listing it on E-Bay.

    Since the other echo escaped with just scratches, save the engine and parts for that one. Thats what I do.
