The Echo PB-250LN's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Echo PB-250LN compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 165 MPH, which is pretty much what is to be expected for gas-powered handheld blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Craftsman BV2500 and its 250 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • As this unit is rated at 391 CFM (cubic feet per minute), it expells less air than most gas-powered handheld blowers. For the highest air volume, you may want to have a look at the Craftsman B225, which boasts with 650 CFM.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas handheld blowers, the Echo PB-250LN is on the expensive side of the price range.

While certainly not the cheapest of its kind, purchasing it could most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.

    I have purchased two Echo blowers PB-250-LN. Had no problem with the first one. Second one after about a year, the plastic recoil spring holder broke. Warranty repair would have cost me more than repairing it myself. This basically is a good product, but the plastic used here is a no no. Too much stress for plastic. However, I did just buy a PB-2520 for my grandson as well as one of the string trimmers. Please do not cut quality in critical areas like the recoil spring holder.

    + PROS: Basically a good product
    - CONS: Low quality plastic of the recoil spring holder
