ECHO Introduces Two Category-Leading Blowers for 2019

Chicago, IL (10/2/2018) - After taking the trimmer category by storm with its high-performance SRM-2620 and SRM-3020-series trimmers, ECHO is looking to further strengthen its leadership position in the blower category with not just one, but two category-leading blowers for 2019 – the PB-8010 and PB-2620.

The new PB-8010 backpack blower features a new 79.9cc engine which delivers the highest blowing performance of any backpack blower on the market – 1071 CFM and 211 MPH, with an incredible 44 Newtons according to the ANSI B175.2 standard. That’s at least 7% more performance than any other backpack blower on the market. All that performance is directed onto the nearest unsuspecting pile of leaves through huge 3.6” diameter blower tubes, featuring a wear ring on the end to prevent wear.

The PB-8010 also features an industry-first carbon fiber plastic frame and fan case. This new technology cuts 1.9 pounds of weight compared to standard plastic material, and allows the PB-8010T to tip the scales at just 24.5 lbs, comparable with ECHO’s popular PB-770T.

Rounding out this game-changing model is an oversized pleated paper main filter and foam prefilter for use in high-dust environments, along with tool-less latches for easy in-field maintenance. An extra-large 83.8 oz fuel tank delivers long run times, and padded backpack straps and a padded backrest keep things comfortable for all-day use. The ECHO-original vented backpack frame draws air across the user’s back to keep you cool in hot weather, and a block-off plate is included for use in cooler weather.

The PB-8010 is available with either a tube-mounted throttle (PB-8010T) or a hip-mounted throttle (PB-8010H) for an MSRP of $599.99.

Not content with only having the highest-performance backpack blower, ECHO is also introducing the highest performance professional handheld blower on the market, the PB-2620. This model features strong 456 CFM and 172 MPH performance, with 15.8 Newtons of performance according to ANSI B175.2.

The PB-2620 combines this category-leading performance with numerous features that
professionals demand: chrome cylinder plating; a pleated paper main filter and foam prefilter
with tool-less access allowing for use in high-dust environments; best-in-class hot restartability;
and an oversized 20.3 oz. fuel tank. All ensure that the PB-2620 will keep delivering
performance even in the summer heat.

A rubber main handle, a secondary handle and variable locking cruise control help keep user’s
hands comfortable during long usage periods. The blower comes with both a round-end pipe
(with patented wear ring) and flared-end pipe, allowing output to be tailored to the job.
The PB-2620 is available at an MSRP of $199.99.

Come see both the PB-8010 and the PB-2620 at ECHO’s indoor booth at GIE + EXPO in
Louisville, KY on Oct 17-19th, or take them for a whirl at the Outdoor Performance Circuit.
Both models will be available at ECHO dealers starting in autumn 2018, and feature ECHO’s
2-year commercial/5-year consumer warranty.
