    I heard that the new 650s will have the right hand tube throttle. Can anyone confirm this?

    Joel,

    I bought a PB650 unit this summer and had the right hand throttle installed. It was only $30 more. Nice unit. What's the PB750 all about?

    Yes, the PB-650 is now going to be available with a right hand tube mount throttle! The PB-750 has the large air cleaner and is $20 more at retail. These are awesome blowers! I have a fleet of approx. 12 of them with NO problems.

    A major bonus here is the new PB-650 and 750 are substantially quieter (71 decibels). According to my local dealer this is due to the new engine design from Echo. There is big news to me as I have a lot of accounts that are close together etc. and noise is always a factor.

    Echo Rules,

    The sticker on my PB650 (bought in July this year) says my unit is at 71 decibals already.
