Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • Belonging to the line of Echo blowers, both the PB-2520 and the PB-2620 should have a shared standard of manufacturing and attention to detail.
  • Being handheld blowers, these two products ensure exceptional mobility while in use.
  • Both products are gas-powered blowers - gas is a reliable power source which you can refill in a matter of seconds, offering you the freedom of movement to tackle larger outdoor spaces with ease.

CFM & MPH

  • The Echo PB-2620 with a CFM of 456 slightly exceeds the 453 CFM of the Echo PB-2520. Thus, in comparison, you may find that the former is able to move more leaves per minute.
  • With an MPH of 172, the Echo PB-2620 edges out the 170 MPH of the Echo PB-2520, potentially improving its performance in leaf blowing and debris lifting tasks.

Weight & Noise rating

  • The Echo PB-2620, weighing 9.7 lbs, edges slightly above the 8.8 lbs of the Echo PB-2520, implying that while it's marginally heavier, you may notice a tad more comfort and ease in handling the latter.
  • At 70 dB, both devices are equally neighbor-friendly, ensuring that neither would cause undue disturbance, and equally gentle on your ears during operation.

Engine specs comparison

  • The Echo PB-2620 features a slightly larger fuel tank, with a capacity of 20.3 fl.oz., potentially allowing for longer operational periods, provided its engine is as fuel-efficient as that of the Echo PB-2520.
  • The engine displacement of 25.4cc in both products indicates similar fuel consumption per stroke, potentially leading to equivalent performance capabilities.
  • Both leaf blowers come with 2-cycle engines, which necessitate an oil/fuel mix for operation.

Other features comparison

Vacuum ability

Both the Echo PB-2520 and the Echo PB-2620 lack leaf vacuuming features, meaning you'll need to employ another method for leaf collection.

  1. Thank you and this video well done! You didn’t mention weight…small difference in weight on them, but w extra gas plus extra weight, one might want to know that for their needs. Above all I want to tell you your video is really good and helped me make my decision (I am replacing one similar to the 2520, which worked great for me 15 years) but borrowed a blower similar to the 2620 and loved that base handle but I also felt the heavier weight, so a factor to think about. YES refilling the gas tank seemed too often on the old one…so the larger tank is a plus for me.

  2. Bobby is almost right, PB-2620 has a 2 ring piston and a chrome plated cylinder for longer life.
    PB-2520 has a 1 ring piston and standard cylinder.

  3. pb2620 has 2 ring chrome piston
    pb2520 has 1 ring aluminum piston
    I think
