Description

Overview of the Echo PB-580H

  • Power: The PB-580H gas-powered leaf blower, manufactured by Echo, is rated for a max air volume of 510 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and a max air speed of 215 MPH.
  • Handling: By design, this model isn’t the smallest leaf blower on the market. It’s meant to be carried as a backpack so that the bulk of the unit is out of the way and the user’s hands are free to manipulate the nozzle. However, for a gas-powered backpack blower, the Echo PB-580H is heavier than most, weighing 22.9 lbs.
  • Engine: The blower is fitted with a 58.2 cc engine. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the PB-580H 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 (see your user’s manual for details).
  • Speed Settings: For those who are keen on having complete control while operating their leaf blower, the PB-580H offers variable speed settings.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 70 dB, the PB-580H is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the gas-powered backpack category.
  • Fuel Tank: Its tank can hold 62 fl. oz., so it falls squarely in the average in terms of fuel capacity.

The Echo PB-580H's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Echo PB-580H compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Air exiting the nozzle of this blower can reach 215 MPH, which is quite a bit faster than most gas-powered backpack leaf blowers (the one expelling air at the fastest speed being the Husqvarna 150BT with 251 MPH).
  • It’s capable of expelling a maximum air volume of 510 CFM (cubic feet per minute). This places it at the low end compared to other gas-powered backpack leaf blowers (the biggest expelled air volume belonging to the Stihl BR 700 with 912 CFM).

AVERAGE SPECS:
