    Ok guys what can you tell me about this blower, cause I need some advice.. Ok, If you remember awhile back I was given an echo PB-400e BP blower. Well today the same guy brought me this tanaka blower. Now is this is a good reliable blower, If it is I am going to keep the tanaka and sell him the echo for the 50 dollars, which is how much I put into it.. So what should I do? Is the tanaka more powerful than the echo? It looks kinda old, but runs real smooth and revs good. I put in some gas, primed for or five times, and it started on the second pull.. So how well do these last. So basically is the tanaka better than the echo in terms of power and air volume? And if you were in my situation, would you trade or not? Thanks for your advice and time, Snapper PS. this is not going to be used commercialy, just around on several yards for leaves and in the summer for grass..
