PB-580

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).
