    $469.00??? I already have a simple Echo 403 which works fine, but looking to throw it on the shelf as a back up and replace it with something a little better. Another thought was purchasing a Giant push blower for a commercial property I have... parking lots/open areas that collect some light/moderate leaves in fall. $499.00

    That is what the 600 is going for at my dealer.

    My dealer has it selling for $489. Sounds like a fair price. I paid $539 for my redmax 8000 3 weeks before Stihl came out with the big one.

    I purchased a BR600 and the price without tax was $469. The price for a redmax800 series was $100 more.

    $469 is the retail price. That's what I paid.

    Last fall there was a special on Echo PB 751's (top of the line). I think they were around $470-480. I bought one last fall and never thought I would get so excited over a backpack. It was almost like a 8 horse Giant Vac strapped to your back. It definitely paid off timewise compared to the little kawasaki I had before. I wonder if they still have that special. Maybe check if the deal is still going on.

    I paid $450 for my stihl br600, and I willing to bet they will last longer than any of the 2-strokes.

    thanks guys... I totally forgot to do search. Found this same topic already mentioned a million times... :dizzy: sorry.

    yea, I think $469.00 was about the average. I had recently purchased a Stihl trimmer and stick edger. Very happy, so I'm thinkin' the BP will make me just as happy.
