Because it run on gas ?

I'm pretty sure many RFD users don't hesitate to drive a long distance (and burn gas) to grab a deal Face With Tears Of Joy, even if they order online, how many trucks are burning gas to deliver their orders ?

2 stroke engines are different than 4 stroke engines. Electric leaf blowers are another option. These things are getting banned for a few reasons.

bought one 10 years ago from home depot. Worked great for 5 years . 5 years ago it wouldn't start would pull and pull till my arms turned to jello. always took gas out and used fresh fuel mixture every season yet it let me down. Bought a gas weed wacker same time and it still works perfectly fine . No idea why the blower $hit the bed so early did nothing differently between the two machines and figure they have very similar engines. Would not buy another Echo blower was expecting better from the brand. Now i just use a cheap electric blower and it works every time Neutral Face

thanks for nothing EchoDisappointed Face

This is exactly why this is getting downvoted.

There are better options, these need to go.

I bought an Echo gas weed whacker years ago. Discovered that it is very picky about the gas. Must use gasoline less than 2 weeks old or it won't start. When the temperature drops (eg. to 15 degrees and below), the weed whacker won't run without some choke. I suspect it is tuned to be way too lean. But there is no way to adjust the mixture. A lot of hassle to use.

This meant a lot of wasted gasoline/oil mixture I had to pour down the drain if I can't finish it in two weeks. That is until I bought a no-name gas leaf blower from Home Hardware. The no-name blower isn't picky about fuel. So, any unused gas from the Echo gets poured into the no-name blower and it blows fine despite the gas being a month old.

I'm not buying Echo again. Stick with the no-name blower.

need to make sure you have fresh gas all the time in these things....also check the spark arrestor on the muffler. they tend to get clogged when gas isn't mixed right. also could be clogged carb or clogged fuel filter.

I have been using a Echo 2 stroke gas trimmer and hand held leaf blower for probably 8+ years. I often use old gas, my machines run fine. Although I do pour gas stabilizer in my fuel cans. If I needed a new gas blower, I would not hesitate to buy this. Thanks for the post OP.

Weird, my Echo chainsaw is probably the best performing gas engine I've ever dealt with - and I have some Honda stuff too, I still trust my Timberwolf to always always start.

I think its the weight factor and also convenience. You can get a battery powered leaf blower for a similar or even lesser price. The power on the battery powered ones are almost same as the gas powered ones.
