I went into my local dealer last week to order a echo 751 he(which I knew) would have to order it. He says while we are waiting for the place to tell us when it will be in he says why dont you try a JD BP60. He has never steered me wrong before says they are very comparable. Yea right. The specs are a little off. 100 cfms dfference. Anyway me and the guys hated it, The throttle on the tube sucks (IMO) and it is so loud. I did not find what the dbs difference was. Anywho called up the dealer and got him to take it back and get a echo751. It came in today love it.
