Picked up a new Echo 651 Backpack Blower Thursday. Did a parking lot with it that night and was really pleased. Lots of power, quiet, comfortable and appeared to be very fuel efficient. $449.00 plus tax. I clean a Tractor Supply parking lot twice a month. Takes 1.5 hours each time for $75.00. I enjoy being out there at night after they close. Of course working around all the stuff they have sitting around their parking lot gets a little rough but hey at least I get to look at equipment the whole time.
