    I have the 650 & 750. Both good reliable blowers.

    Lots of power. Will do it all, from clean ups to everday use. I usually reach for the 650 before the stihl 420's because of the time savings. Its a little heavy for just blowing clippings but then again it is not on my back as long as the smaller blowers.

    I have a pb 650 and think its a great blower.I had it for three years now and just started having a little trouble with it like keeping it ideling when you first start it up.Other than that it will blow the rocks out of flower beds

    I have one and like it. Makes leaf cleanup a whole lot easier. I did have to have a new carb put on it (under warranty) not long after I got it though but has been ok since then.

    Great blower....you'll love it! We have several Echo blowers and are getting 2 more 751's this spring.

    Use 89 octane gas. I started using 89 octane 2 years ago and it makes a huge difference in the performance of my trimmers, blowers etc...

    I have one...takes a minute or so to warm up and then it's great. It gets used for everyday purposes.

    Ditto^. I'm going to get a BR600 soon and use the ECHO as a back up.

    Bought a pb650 when they first came out. My only complaint is I had to replace the recoil starter three times (in two years) out of my own pocket before they came out with the updated starter.
