The Echo backpack blower was compared to other top brands in the following categories…
Weight to Power Ratio: B
A good powerful blower. However, at 25lbs it should be more powerful. While blowing harder than the Redmax 7001, it falls short of the Redmax 8000.
At 25lbs, the Echo 751 is as heavy as the Redmax 8000. If you are strong, the weight shouldn’t bother you. Just be realistic in accessing yourself.
A tough unit. Tried and true. The Echo has been on the market for several years and no real issues to speak of.
Ease of Start: B+
Easy starting. Due to its size, it does require more of a tug like the Redmax 8000. Remember than you are cranking an engine with over 60cc’s.
Value for Money: B+
Usually sells for $400-500 depending on location. A good value with a reputable company standing behind the unit.
