ECHO TO DEMONSTRATE ITS BEST-IN-CLASS BACK PACK BLOWER – THE PB-580 – AT GIE+EXPO IN LOUISVILLE, KY

Chicago, IL (10/9/2015) - Introduced in the spring of 2015, the ECHO PB-580 backpack blower is the latest in a long line of high-performance models. ECHO launched the world’s first backpack blower in 1975 and has been a leader in the category ever since. 
 
The PB-580 features a powerful 58.2 cc professional grade two-stroke engine that helps deliver air volume of 510 CFM and air speed of 215 MPH, best in class numbers.  Visitors to the GIE+EXPO show will be given the opportunity to try firsthand the PB-580’s power.
 
Designed with operator comfort in mind, the blower weighs as little as 22.6 lbs. in tube-throttle configuration and 22.9 lbs. in hip-throttle configuration. It features a full padded backrest for upper and lower back support. The shoulder straps are user adjustable for all day comfort. It also features a vented back pad, an ECHO innovation that allows air to circulate around the user for increased comfort in hot weather. A four-point vibration-reduction system also increases operator comfort and reduces fatigue. The tube mounted throttle uses a new grip design that’s easier on user hands during all day use.
 
Like all ECHO products, the PB-580 was designed to be durable. It comes with a 5 year consumer warranty and 2 year commercial warranty. It features a patented metal wear ring that extends lower blower tube life. It also features Posi-loc™ pipe connections, an ECHO exclusive design that provides secure pipe connections for the life of the machine and a leaf guard that extends engine life by keeping debris out of the fan intake.
 
To keep noise down and allow extended hours of operation, the PB-580 was designed on the quiet side of the noise spectrum with a 70 dBa (measured per ANSI B175.2 standards).
