Echo’s PB-755 leaf blower looks pretty bad-ass from the spec sheet. It can blow leaves at up to 205 MPH yet weighs in at only 26 pounds. And with its five-year consumer warranty, this thing really blows. (Come on: I couldn’t resist)
There’s a 63.3 cc engine on this bad boy, complete with electronic ignition. The short, hip-mounted throttle with “cruise control” allows you to control how far those leaves go (but easily tucks out of your way) while the air tube features a wide angle rotation joint that allows for plenty of mobility — plus a new design that’s supposed to stay flexible even in cold weather. It’s got a commercial grade air filter up top and a see-through fuel tank, so no more guessing when you need to fuel up.
You’ll have to check with a local dealer on pricing, though, as I’ve been unable to find any word online. Still, it looks like a tool worth the effort.
