Overview of the Echo PB-2620

The Echo PB-2620 in use

The Echo PB-2620

  • Power: The Echo PB-2620 is a gas-powered leaf blower. It sports a max air speed of 172 MPH and a max air volume rating of 456 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • 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 9.7 lbs — the Echo PB-2620 is neither the lightest nor the heaviest gas-powered handheld blower on the market.
  • Engine: This blower's engine has a displacement specification of 25.4 cc. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the PB-2620 cannot run on gasoline alone. The fuel must be mixed with an appropriate ratio of gasoline and oil in order for it to function properly (for this Echo model, this ratio is 50:1).
  • Speed Settings: With its variable speed settings, the Echo PB-2620 allows you to precisely control its air output. In addition, the blower is also equipped with cruise control, with which the user can easily maintain the selected settings.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 70 dB can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered handheld blowers.
  • Fuel Tank: It has an average fuel capacity for a handheld blower, with a tank that holds around 20.3 fl. oz of fuel.

The Echo PB-2620's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Echo PB-2620 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • The Echo PB-2620 expels air at speeds up to 172 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.
  • The PB-2620 is average in terms of air volume. It's rated at 456 CFM, which is common for gas-powered handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Craftsman B225, with 650 CFM, could be in your good books.
