ECHO Incorporated has launched the “world’s most powerful backpack blower,” the PB-9010. With 18% more power than its closest competitor, the ECHO PB-9010 offers industry-leading blowing performance to tackle the toughest applications.

The PB-9010 is part of ECHO’s X Series lineup, a category that represents best-in-class products for the professional user. These outdoor power tools are designed to be powerful, light weight, and offer greater productivity. The PB-9010 is ideal for heavy debris cleanup, and clearing large open areas such as fall clean-up in places such as New England, clearing large parking lots or stadiums, and quick cleanups after mowing.ECHO PB-9010 backpack blower

According to Jason Wilk, Product Manager, ECHO Incorporated, there’s no other backpack blower that even comes close to the performance of the PB-9010.

“The amount of air the PB-9010 moves is nothing short of amazing,” said Wilk. “Its class-leading 79.9 cc professional-grade 2-stroke engine allows it to produce 1,110 CFM of air volume at a speed of 220 MPH at the nozzle, which equates to 48 Newton’s of blowing performance. Additionally, the PB-9010 features heavy-duty padded shoulder straps for all day comfort and a fan intake which provides cooling air across the user’s back during warm weather operation. The PB-9010 is an industry-leading backpack blower that is truly ahead of its time.”
