    Hey guys.Have any of you seen the new ECHO PB-603's?? I just bought one today. Got it for 400+tax. Seems nice but haven't used it enough yet. it weighs 19.6lbs.(Dry). It has the tube mounted throttle,slightly bigger end pipe, smaller air filter, and different type of frame(similar to the PB-260L frame;my previous blower). It blows at 1100cfm at housing and 535cfm at pipe end(190mph). I love the fact it is lighter;19.6 lbs.

    Vibe Ray,

    I recently got an Echo brochure about that unit, but dont remember its cfm and mph specs. Are they really that powerful? Sounds like a hit. I have a Lesco/Echo 44cc like the PB-46. Love it.

    I must be on the "mail me everything list". I think I threw it out. With the new Lazer, its not time for any new purchases!

    We have the PB600 with lever throttle, 58.2cc motor, 195mph 840CFM at housing and 23lbs. We love it, but never heard of the new one out, my local dealer is trying to sell us 2 Fradan BB-51 blowers for $499.99 plus shipping. They look good but only need one but at $300.00 off I may get them and e-bay one off. (how much different is the 603 from the 600?)

    Vibe Ray,

    Yes, in regards to 2601 flex,it was more or less a new 2001 product guide. Kinda wish I didnt throw it out. But I'm not in the market for any 2 cycle equipment this winter.
