Description

Overview of the Echo PB-265LN

The Echo PB-265LN in use

The Echo PB-265LN

  • Power: The Echo PB-265LN is a gas-powered leaf blower. It sports a max air speed of 158 MPH and a max air volume rating of 375 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • Handling: Like most backpack blowers, this model is technically heavier than a handheld. That being said, it can feel lighter and more comfortable because of the way it is carried, even when used over extended periods of time. Its throttle is hip-mounted, which can make it easier on your right hand if you operate it over an extended period of time. Among other gas-powered backpack blowers, the Echo PB-265LN can be considered light, weighing only 13.3 lbs.
  • Engine: The blower is fitted with a 25.4cc engine. As you may or may not know, 2-stroke engines require a mixture of gasoline and oil in order to keep all the moving parts lubricated while fuelling the engine’s internal combustion. The fuel/oil ratio recommended by Echo for the PB-265LN is 50:1.
  • Speed Settings: For those who wish to have complete control while operating their leaf blower, the PB-265LN offers variable speed settings, and moreover, is also equipped with cruise control, which allows the user to comfortably continue blowing at their preferred setting.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 64 dB can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Fuel Tank: The fuel tank can hold 22.3 fl. oz. What it loses in fuel capacity compared to many other backpack blowers, the PB-265LN gains in portability by having a more manageable weight. In fact, it is the smallest tank of all gas backpack blowers.
