    Which brand of backpack blower has the highest horsepower? I have always used the Echo PB400, but was wondering if there was something better?

    Thanks!!

    Go to Echo web page....they have bigger units....PB650/750. I don't know if they will push a brick across pavement but they have a lot of blow power. We have found that these big units are HEAVY and use a lot of FUEL so we are going to back down a notch next year.

    My PB650 won't push a brick across pavement! It tumbles it. Maybe somethings wrong with it , huh?

    25nbl, what planet have you been on? That particular blower would not be considered by most professionals here. I dont particularly like Echo, but the 650 or 750i would be infinitely better choices. Even better would be the Redmax 7001 or 8000. If and when you make this switch you will see what I mean.
