We have Stihl and Echo. The Stihl BR400, we love. It's lightweight and extremely powerful. The Echo PB4600 is powerful but weighs about 5 lbs more. (seems like 20lbs) It has had smoking problems consistantly and will not buy another.
I have 3 BR400/'s and they are nice. From what i have been told and what ive seen they are the lightest most powerfull blowers going. Most big companys around me use the echo PB-400E but i think its is a weak, heavy, dinosaur, but i have seen them fall off the back of trucks going 40 mph and then start right up. If your going to use it i would buy the stihl, if your going to have lots of different people use it buy the echo. Just my opinion good luck
