I need to buy a new blower and can't seem to decided between the Echo PB770 or the Shindaiwa EB8520. I can get the Shindaiwa for $699 (Canadian) and the Echo for $599. Overall I like the Shindaiwa better but the Echo seemed to be a little more powerful during a parking lot test, although it's tough to tell in a parking lot. I've never been an Echo fan but this blower does seem good. Anyhow, I'd appreciate any feedback from people who've used either one of the blowers. Thank you.
