Re: Backpack Leaf Blower Suggestions, Please

No matter what you decide to buy (I have an Echo)... don't base your decision on air speed/pressure only. What you really want to consider is the CFM, or volume of air moved. I use mine all the time, and it starts easily (1st or 2nd pull) every time. I also use 89 octane fuel in all my gas-powered tools... my local dealer recommended it, supposedly, encourages lower operating temps. I figure for how little it actually costs, I'd follow his recommendation. So far, he's never steered me wrong.
