    OK, I "think" I want to pick up a new PB750 backpack blower and a PAS 260 with an articulating hedge trimmer and maybe an edger. I already have a new Stihl trimmer.

    What is a fair price to pay for each piece?
    Do I really "need" the 750?
    What about the Pro-Light blower?
    Would it be better to get dedicated stuff over the PAS?

    Only you can decide that. I have the 650's, and I can tell you my guys fight over them. Best blowers I have used. The 750's I believe are around $450. As far as the PAS, I would reccomend them to anyone. :cool:

    PAS 260 powerhead --- $290
    Articulating Hedge Clipper --- $270
    Hedge Clipper --- $180
    Edger --- $100
    Pro Sweep power broom --- $260
    Power Pruner --- $180
    String Trimmer --- $100

    Shop around - I took these prices from A.M.Leonard catalog and I think they are a bit high. Talk to your local ECHO dealer he might cut you a deal in anticipation of future business.
    I have the PB 650 and find it to be wonderful, my dealer told me to save my money (upgrade to the 750).
    Dedicated or PAS is your choice - both have advantages.
