Echo launched the ECHO PB-580 backpack blower. The PB-580 features a 58.2 cc professional grade two-stroke engine that helps deliver air volume of 510 CFM and air speed of 215 MPH.
It weighs as little as 22.6 lbs. in tube throttle configuration, 22.9 lbs. in hip throttle configuration. It features a full padded backrest for upper and lower back support. The shoulder straps are user adjustable for all day comfort. It also features a vented back pad, an ECHO innovation that allows air to circulate around the user for increased comfort in hot weather. A four-point vibration reduction system also increases operator comfort and reduces fatigue. The tube mounted throttle uses a new grip design that’s easier on user hands during all day use.
The PB-580 comes with a 5-year consumer warranty and 2-year commercial warranty. It features a patented metal wear ring that extends lower blower tube life. It also features Posi-loc pipe connections and a leaf guard that extends engine life by keeping debris out of the fan intake.
To keep noise down and allow extended hours of operation, the PB-580 was designed on the quiet side of the noise spectrum with a 70 dBa (measured per ANSI B175.2 standards).
