Description

The ECHO X Series PB-8010 backpack blower offers industry leading blowing performance to easily tackle the toughest applications. It’s designed for professional landscapers who demand top blowing performance for heavy cleanup or clearing of large open areas. Eight hour work days are nothing for this Beast. A 79.9 cc two-stroke engine provides the highest blowing performance available. Coupled with a lightweight, innovative carbon fiber frame, you won’t sacrifice control or comfort when powering through the toughest yard debris.

Overview of the Echo PB-8010H

The Echo PB-8010H in use

The Echo PB-8010H

  • Power: The PB-8010H, built by Echo, is a gas-powered leaf blower capable of expelling a maximum air volume of 1071 cubic feet per minute (CFM). Its air speed is rated at 211 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. Its throttle is hip-mounted, which can make it easier on your right hand if you operate it over an extended period of time. However, for a gas-powered backpack blower, the Echo PB-8010H is heavier than most, weighing 24.8 lbs.
  • Engine: This blower's engine has a displacement specification of 79.9cc. Please be aware that 2-cycle engines like this one require a mixture of gas and oil in order to run. For the Echo PB-8010H, this ratio 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-8010H to match.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 79.3 dB can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Fuel Tank: Its impressive 83.8 fl. oz. tank capacity puts it on the higher end of the spectrum of similar gas backpack blowers.
