    what do you guys think about the home depot echo backpack blower pb260l for$279 and the straight trimmer echo at home depot for $199? Also, what's the advantage of a 2 cycle mower engine?????

    NNOOooo! If that's the one I'm thinking of, it's just a handheld blower mounted to a backpack frame!! Don't waste your money.

    For $200-250 you can get a nice commercial quality backpack blower with a 40cc engine on ebay.

    gogetter has the right idea, I always check ebay before I buy anything, I actually bought the Echo 260l and I love it, has all the power you want and I got it off Ebay for $186, almost a hundred cheaper...good luck

    You can get a decent trimmer at HD. We use the Echo SRM-230s and they have been great. HD is about $40 cheaper than the mower shop and open 24 hours.
