This is a high level performance blower with a lower levels of noise. The ECHO blower comes equipped with a cruise control option that is meant to help with operator fatigue.

Pros: There is some serious love for ECHO products within the customer reviews. I personally have never used any of their product but after all the positive things I read about them, it is something I would definitely be considering. Blowers are typically pretty loud, this model expresses that this product has lower noise lever, the overall conclusion after reading through all the customer reviews is that it is exactly what the customer expected in terms of noise.
Cons: There was a little mention that it took a few times to wear in the blower to be what the customer thought it would be. Looking into the warranty of this product there isn’t a whole lot of positive to say about it. It’s a very limited warranty. Overall there seems to be way more satisfied customers then not, however I would keep this in mind when purchasing this product.
Recommendations: This particular model is only available online, however it does come with free shipping. There are tons of consumers out there who tired this blower and are really happy with it. Like everything out there, there is always a few instances where the customer had different expectations of a product or they may have gotten one that was defective. It is not often that so many people take the time to write about a particular product. This type of overall consumer satisfaction make it easy to recommend this as a considerable option.

I do this more and more now a days as it is so much faster and you don’t have to wonder around forever trying to find exactly what you are looking for. With a product like this you really get what you par for. This is a blower priced under $60 when most of the ones I see now on the market are well over $200. In my opinion if you are looking for an easy lite weight blower for a terrace, patio or deck, this is your product. If you want a full multipurpose machine, I would venture into something like the ECHO mentioned above. For more info or to check out the in store pick up option go to the home depot.ca website.
