Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the PB-580H and the PB-580T are both Echo blowers, they benefit from the same level of quality and attention to detail. The PB-580H has a hip throttle, whereas the PB-580T's throttle is located on the tube of the blower and allows you to free your left hand. Whether the hip-mount or the tube-mount is better is a matter of personal preference.
  • These two products are constructed as backpack blowers, allowing you to comfortably carry their powerful engines and massive fuel tanks.
  • Both products are gas-powered blowers - gas is a reliable power source which you can refill in a matter of seconds.

CFM & MPH

  • The two blowers have an identical CFM of 510. By providing you with the same volumes of air, both units should allow, on a hard surface, to move the same amount of dry leaves per minute.
  • These two products have an identical MPH of 215. By providing you with the same air speeds, they should both be as efficient when blowing leaves on grass or lifting wet leaves and debris (acorns, etc.).

Weight & Noise rating

  • The weight of the Echo PB-580H, which is 22.9 lbs, slightly exceeds the 22.6 lbs of the Echo PB-580T, and will therefore require you to carry around slightly more weight.
  • Both devices have a noise rating of 70 dB. They should therefore be equally demanding on the ears.

Engine specs comparison

  • Both devices have an identical fuel tank size of 62 fl.oz. They will therefore require you to refill them at roughly same rates.
  • These two products have an identical engine displacement of 58.2 cc. Thus, they consume comparable amounts of fuel per stroke and will provide you with similar output.
  • Each of these leaf blowers features a 2-cycle engine. Thus, they both require you to have an oil/fuel mix to operate.

Other features comparison

Vacuum ability

Neither the Echo PB-580H nor the Echo PB-580T has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
