    WHo has one, and do you think they are good......I just bought one, and when its on full throttle it seems to vibrate bad, and make a rough running noise, and not top power. I have to prime mine like 20 times, lol. ANYONE else have this problem with yours or something like it at least?

    I do own one and I really like it, prime 3-4 times, red tab up, a little throttle 1-2 pulls and as soon as it starts move the red tab down, runs rough for about 5-8 seconds warming up then everything is fine, no vibrations at full throttle. OK for most places but small for others, nest year will be getting a PB-755 to balance my blower needs.

    i have an echo pb 400 (similar) and have no problems at all with it. starts right up in about three pulls, prime it 2-4 times.
    i also just bought a redmax ebz8000, my echo is like blowin in a straw compared to the redmax
