    Just curious on people's thoughts on the Echo PB 403T. This will be my first backpack purchase. Has anyone had problems with it or anything?

    I have one. It is great. Starts on the 1st pull 90% of the time and the 2nd pull the rest of the time. Have not ran across anything yet where I felt I needed more power.

    Spend $50 more and get the 603. i've had both side by sideand the 603 is alot stronger.

    603 is definetly a lot more powerful, but it also uses more gas. sometimes more power is not the way to go, especially if it is windy. all you get is a big dust storm. 403 is a good choice, i have 2 and 1 603. Always start on the 2-3 pull even when cold. good luck with your purchase.

    i'll sell you my redmax 4400. it's about the same weight, motor size, but a tad stronger according to the manufacter's specs. it's about 6 mos old, still looks and runs new.

    I think that I will go with the 403 but if it isn't to my liking and not powerful enough (which I do doubt) I will try the 603
