I found that the Echo PB60HT has 960 cfm. CFM is how you measure the power of the blower w/ consideration to the cc's. Right??? well 960 cfm is the most cfm's I've seen on any of those other blowers. Redmax, shindaiwa, stihl all have a considerably less amount of cfm.
I have the ph46ht Echo. Works well for me. Didn't know there was a 60 at the time. The machine is a little heavy though. But I like where the controls are and the power is good. I will probaby buy the 60 in the fall for the leaf season.
BPB CFM's are inconsistant. MPH mean something too.<p>Some measure at the housing, some measure at the end of the tube. Some use longer tubes. <br>The RedMax and the Stihl both blow harder than the Echo. I haven't used a Shindiawa in real world conditions yet, but I'm sure they blow harder as well.
I'M STARTING TO HAVE TROUBLE WITH MY BP46HT .IV'E CHANGED THE FUEL FILTER,DID REGULAR MAINT.AND AM STILL HAVING COLD START-IDLE PROBLEMS..ANY IDEAS WOULD BE AGREAT HELP BEFORE I TRADE IT OFF...THANKS IN ADVANCE
We have 4 PB 60's and 6000's. The oldest of these is 9 years old. The only problem I had with them was an ignition pak which was under warranty. The throttle cables are a litlle tedious to change but overall I like them.<br>David
I have one more question,<p>I decided to instead go with Echo's brand new blower: PB-601 It is the same as the 60HT except for it has the throttle control on the handle on the arm of the blower. The one thing I didn't like about Echo's blowers has been solved!!!!!!!!!! But, the manufacture is having problems because they didn't make enough for the demand. So a bunch more people ordered them right when they came out. So they are really hurrying to catch up the demand now. Do you think this hurry could create recalls, and poorly made blowers????????????<br>
