Echo Backpack Blower PB-8010 Leaf Blower Reviews

Top ECHO Products from GIE Expo 2018

The GIE Expo brings in thousands of onlookers to find out what’s new from manufacturers. Many manufacturers struggle to bring one new product, and they may stretch to have two. This year Echo blew it out of the water, releasing several new power tools for the green industry. We thought we’d help out and put the top Echo products from GIE Expo into one article, so here you go.


Echo PB-8010 Backpack Blower

Most blowers either peak in CFM or in MPH, and then use marketing to brag about their high number. In reality, it’s a combination of both that get the work done. The real measurement for showing this is called Newtons. The new Echo PB-8010 blower is king of the hill in this area too, blowing 44 Newtons worth of force.

ECHO USA shows their new backpack beast of a blower. The new PB-8010 blower develops 44 Newtons of force with 1071 cfm and 211 mph. $599#gieecho18 #lawncare

Echo CSG-7410 Gas-Powered Cut-Off Saw

Another one of the top Echo products is the brand-new Echo CSG-7410 cut-off saw. This is Echo’s first attempt at a cut-off saw, and they’re jumping in with both feet. This is a monster 73.5cc 2-stroke engine. Starting the large-displacement engine is still easy, thanks to a couple additional features. First, the CSG-7410 includes a decompression valve for initial startup. Also, the pull-rope start is spring-assisted, making the pull much easier. The fast-idle choke makes keeping the initial startup running a breeze as well. When the choke is applied, once the engine fires to life, it’s automatically set at high-idle. Once the Echo CSG-7410 is warm, just blip the throttle and the idle returns to normal. Finally, a patented 4-stage air cleaner system protects the engine from contaminants, yielding a longer life.

ECHO’s CSG-7410 cut-off saw offers the highest cutting torque, due not only to the 73.5 cc engine but also the 2.6:1 drive ratio. The 14-inch wheel is belt driven, so the pulley on the engine side of the saw is 2.6x smaller than the pulley on the wheel side. The wheel is purposely centered in the saw, keeping gyrometrics (spinning bade) working for the user. However, if the need arises to make a cut close to a wall, the wheel and arm can be reversed, hence the cutting wheel will be outside-mounted.

EHCO CS-2511T Top-Handle Chainsaw

We actually reviewed the Echo CS-2511T top-handle saw already, and our Pro was really impressed. The small size of the CS-2511T makes it very easy to tether to yourself and climb without much of an issue. Also, the 25cc engine still puts out plenty of power to rip the chain through the trees.

While cruising through the ECHO USA booth at the GIE Expo, we spotted the tiny but powerful CS-2511T chainsaw. This mighty little wonder will get the job done, and the body is not much bigger than my hand. It's a great climbing saw for the #arborist. #opeechogie18 #chainsaw
