    I recently heard that Echo has a backpack blower with 58.2cc, has anyone used it before? I have mostly Husqvarna blowers, but none are this big.

    dmk395,

    They have 2 models with the 58.2cc engine. One has a hip throttle, the other has the tube mounted one.

    They are also coming out with the NEW PB-650 with a 63.3cc engine! It has 5oz. more fuel capacity, about 3lbs lighter, 95 more cfm, and 15 more mph! I was told it will be released in the Spring??? Anyone heard of a more exact date? This is my next blower.

    Well if these blowers keep getting bigger we won't have to mow anymore! We will be busy sodding everyone from the grass being blown right off!! LOL

    I bought an echo backpack blower last year and love it. Im not sure what size it is but I can dam near launch things with it. I remember the week I got it last spring. I was blowing off an owd wood deck and the force began to literally rip off the old paint. Later that week I was running around a newly planted bed when I up rooted a row of flowers. Cool

    63cc's Wow!!! I wonder if you could point the nozzel at the ground, wrap your legs around it, squeeze the trigger and go for a ride?

    I use a PB601 58.4cc, 535cfms at the tube end. Works real well im still looking for a shindaiwa eb630 online. The new echo 650 has over 600cfms all the models with over 500 at the end are very good investments. Marks Mowing Service
