    I found a guy selling an used Echo pb-2100 blower for 55.00. He says it has new plug, fliter, fuel filter. Not sure how old it is or if it was used for commecial or just residial use... Also said it is great shape and ready for use.

    I really need a blower and was wondering if these are good blowers, and if this is a fair price..

    Thanks all!

    That is me selling the blower, I wouldnt recommend it for heavy duty commercial.. I tried it for blowing leaves and some clippings for my house. It doesnt have the output for the leaves, but moved clippings pretty good. Thats why my wife bought the back pack blower, its twice the size engine wise.. Your welcome to come by or meet me somewhere and check it out.. Thanks shawn

    Such a small world! :)

    Right now I am a pretty small opeartion only about 5 customers. This is my first season in businees. I just need something that will get throught the rest of the season, and maybe next until I can get $$$ for a decent blower

    Grab a Sears or Homelite Backpack blower to get you through the rest of the year. About $150.00 new. Then you can have a back-up next season still in good condition.

    $55 if it is in good shape is worth it. I picked one up new at the beginning of the season for $150. Shawn is right, it doesn't work so well on leaves, but for blowing clippings off the driveway when you're done mowing, it's perfect. A lot easier, IMO, than strapping on a backpack for 1 minute of blowing.
