lesco backpack blower

Heres my question, i have an echo pb-400e blower. My neighbor has a lesco lbb-4200 that he bought used. Has a new carb and runs good. First, anybody have the specs on this lesco blower?? cc's or air volume?? Secondly, my echo has been tweaked and works pretty good, but is heavy. He said he would trade me blowers if i wanted to. So would this lesco be a step up in power?? Or should i just stay put with mine?? I would really like to hear from those that have these??


Thanks guys!! chris!@!

I would venture to say that the lesco and the echo are very similar in the cc's.

Hernon Cove is right, the lesco backpacks are really just the echo models. For example. Look at the echo PB 46HT and the lesco Pb 4600. They are the same unit design, same specs, except one says echo and is black and one says lesco and is green.

I would go for the trade. You are going to get a ligher machine, probably with a little more power.

I think the PB 400 E's are a little outdated for long term use. They are quite heavy for todays machinery. They are one of the most durable units echo made, with the metal frame, but they do get heavy.
