I had my first chance to use my new Echo 750 blower and all I can say is WOW! I had never used a backpack before and now I know why you guys throw away your rakes. It blew out wet leaves and fluffs up the grass to make it look like you killed yourself raking. I feel like a kid at X-mas. What I need to know is technique. What's the easiest way to blow and not throw everything everywhere. How do you pile it up in one spot to pick it up? I ran it at half throttle and it worked great. Is that the norm and what would you use full throttle for? I used to dread spring cleanup but this thing will take about 1/4 the time. Worth every penny.
