    Anyone have good info on this compared to 8010? Got one coming later this week or early next. Guessing just some tube/elbow stuff to fix the complaints but going cost bit more than the 8010 for some reason.

    $50 more picking up Friday. Guess we see if it worth the eXtra pennies shortly.

    Here's an image of it that I found. Looks like the Echo 8010:

    Tubes, elbow and tip I want to see. I got no problem w/8010 as is but smoother wider swing would be mild improvement.

    This one should give a better view of the tube. Looks the same as the Echo.

    The video posted of it yesterday on here showed the tubes were the same and IIRC the echo rep said they were identical too.

    Going run it at least a day make sure they didn’t tweak something. Surprised no one done this yet.

    Yes. Saw video yesterday. Looks same but need run it to be sure. I got 2 854’s few years apart. Newer one looks same as older but totally different feel.
