    I know this has been all beaten up but I have not heard much about Husky blowers and I have a good track record with Husky. Question is Husky, 165BT 190mph 530 cfm @ $395.00 or an ECHO 651 or 751, 205 mph 620 cfm @ $430.00 - 465.00. is 15 mph and 90 cfm that big of a deal.
    the husky has a Kawasaki engine and I can't find any engine info for ECHO factual and user opinions needed. thank you in advance for your suggestions.

    I have an echo pb600 blower which is now called the pb610. I have had it for about 8 years and it has been great with almost no problems. I have a husquavarna chain saw and just bought the echo mini-tiller. No problems with any of their equipment so far. I wish i could be of more help but i think alot of this falls in the ford vs. chevy debate situation.

    101, Echo is a better choice - hands down.

    Well lets hope so I just ordered the PB-751 T. it amazes me how this site will critique when people do not give information about a decision they need help on but when the info is given you get few if any replies. Thanks Gunner and Tider for your input. i was really curious about the Husky but its all about time and I don't have much.

    Get a rain jacket.

    Echo blowers are better.
