    Just wondering how much they are going for and if they have the throttle on the right hand side.

    Last I checked @ the lawn & garden show they didn't have a tube mounted throttle and they were around $500-.

    Yeah price sounds about right, bought the step down version PB-603, for $420. The 650's have the throttle on the left side, I demoed one at the dealer before buying my 603. I like the throttle on the tube, but thats cause i've only owned one.
  5. I bought mine about a year ago at
    450 plus tax
    They are a local dealer but offer free shipping-you probably wont pay tax out of state.

    Throttle on left, I find it easy to use.

    Throttle was still on the left in August when I bought mine for $520.00 with tax. It's worth the 520. Ya can stand on one side of a 3 car driveway and blow the whole thing and unbelievale on leaves.

    The one that I bought was 459.00 about 5 months ago, the echo rep told mne that a new called the 650t will be out any day, and it will have a bigger air filter and tube mounted throttle.

    both of ours were 499 plus tax from a dealer. Our echo dealer doesn't like doing warranty work on machines not bought new from him. no problems and man, they blow. we'll be getting 2 more this year. dave g
