Echo has released its PB-8010 model backpack leaf blower in Australia.
The PB-8010, part of the ECHO X Series, generates a force of 44 newtons – seven percent more than its nearest competitor, according to a release. With its strong, lightweight carbon fibre bag frame and impeller housing, it is intended for the biggest professional jobs where the extra power will save time and effort.
Other features include a fully adjustable throttle trigger, comfortable odour resistant harness and 91 millimetre pipes with a metal wear ring. For operator comfort the fan intake allows cooling air to circulate around the user’s back and there’s also advanced vibration reduction to support all-day use. The high capacity air filter and pre filter sit on top of the unit, extending maintenance intervals and can be accessed without tools.
The unit has a recommended retail price of $1199 and is available from select Echo dealers nationwide. It is backed by a two year commercial warranty and five year domestic warranty.
