Echo is a huge name in the world of leaf blowers. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that we like what we see here. In fact, we think the Echo PB 2520 blower has a lot to offer in terms of features and design, especially for the price. That’s why it earned a spot on our Best Leaf Blower Reviews list.

So, let’s dive into some background information and see if you agree with us. Oh, and there are more ECHO models on our Best Backpack Leaf Blower Reviews list, too

Echo PB 2520 Blower Features

First, we’re going to kick things off with a little patriotism and mention that Echo makes the PB 2520 right here in the good old US of A. And what they made impressed us.

For one, you shouldn’t let its lightweight build fool you (we’ll get to that later).


  • Model: Echo PB 2520
  • 25.4cc, 2-stroke engine
  • 170 mph, 453 CFM
  • Fuel capacity: 18.6 oz
  • Weight: 8.6 lbs

This gas-powered tool has a professional-grade, 2-stroke 25.4cc engine that packs some punch. Specifically, the Echo PB 2520 blower can move your leaves and debris with a force of 170 mph and 453 CFM.

Furthermore, this unit comes equipped with a variable-speed trigger and cruise control.

ECHO PB 2520 Blower Design

Now, on the design side of things, there’s a decent amount of features to explore. Indeed, the attention that Echo put into various details impressed us.

For example, this model employs a double-grid intake system to help prevent clogging.

Interestingly, Echo also combined performance design and comfort factors to make the handheld PB 2520 not just formidable but ergonomic.

Its proprietary S-pipe shape reduces any gyro effect that might act on the user’s wrist, which should reduce muscle and joint fatigue. What’s more, Echo tells us that the curved blower tube is exclusive, providing rotational control for enhanced comfort.

Finally, at 8.6 pounds, this is one of the lighter handheld gas units we’ve seen.

Echo PB 2520 Price

The Echo PB 2520 handheld blower retails for $169. It comes backed with 5-year consumer and 2-year commercial warranties.
