Backpack leaf blower; Echo or Husqvarna
I am in the market for a backpack leaf blower and cannot decide between the Echo or Husqvarna brand. The two I have chosen are priced the same ($199) and available at HD or Lowes. I have copied the 'important specs' from the sites. Can the Husqvarna be that much better? The small gas tank on the Husqvarna is bothering me.
Anyone have experience with these models? Which are recommended?
