Overview of the Echo PB-255LN

The Echo PB-255LN in use

The Echo PB-255LN

  • Power: The Echo PB-255LN is a gas-powered blower with a maximum air volume rating of 354 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed of 191 MPH.
  • Handling: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds. All told, it weighs 10.2 lbs — the Echo PB-255LN is neither the lightest nor the heaviest gas-powered handheld blower on the market.
  • Engine: The blower is fitted with a 25.4cc engine. Being that this is a 2-stroke engine, it must be fuelled using a mix of gas and oil. The proper fuel ratio set by the manufacturer for the PB-255LN is 50:1.
  • Speed Settings: In order to afford more control to the user, this unit has a variable speed control. No matter the size of the job, the user can adjust the airflow of the Echo PB-255LN to match.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 64 dB, the PB-255LN is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the gas-powered handheld category.
  • Fuel Tank: Its tank can hold 16.9 fl. oz., so it falls squarely in the average in terms of fuel capacity for handheld blowers.

The Echo PB-255LN's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Echo PB-255LN compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • The Echo PB-255LN expels air at speeds up to 191 MPH, making it standard in terms of air speed 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.
  • Its max air volume rating (354 cubic feet per minute) means it is really not the biggest air producer of 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.

    Takes too long warming up. This leaf blowers engine went out after only about 6 hours run time. Its pure trash and I’ll never purchase another echo brand product after seeing a backlog off echo power equipment at the local small engine shop.

    + PROS: Easy start
    - CONS: Defective product
