This and the ES-210 are Echo's offering in the leaf blower/shredder line of products. I've had mine for about 2 months and it's pretty sweet. Only thing I've noticed that irritates me is if I get to holding it just right with the muscles in my arm tensed, there is enough vibration from the machine that I wind up really sore the next day. If you just let your arm hang there and aren't actively lifting it, you don't get that. I think a set of padded gloves and some foam on the grip would probably go a long ways towards curing that.

Date Purchased: 8/2006
Price Paid: $2406
Recommend: Yes
Pros:
No raking any more. Can also be used as a blower. 50:1 fuel ratio is the same as many other weed eaters and snow blowers. Not heavy. Versatile, 2 tools in 1.

Cons:
Vibration. 50:1 fuel ratio isn't the same as anything you own that is older.
