ECHO Incorporated, a leading manufacturer of professional-grade, high-performance outdoor power equipment for commercial and residential use, announces the release of the most powerful low-noise backpack blower on the market, the ECHO PB-760LN.
The PB-760LN boasts a larger muffler, sound deadening insulation and a mid-pipe baffle to help lower the machine’s sound output to 65 dB(A), which is measured per the industry standard for testing leaf blowers. Blowers with a rating of 65 dB(A) are quieter than blowers of older design. The annoying whine common to outdated leaf blowers, generated by the main impeller fan, is essentially gone on these models.
While there are other low-noise blowers on the market, none compare to the PB-760LN in terms of air volume and maximum airspeed. The PB-760LN features 535 cubic feet per minute (CFM) of air volume at 214 miles per hour, whereas the nearest competitor only manages 477 CFM and 177 miles per hour at the same decibel level.
“Most golf courses perform maintenance very early in the morning, and the ECHO PB-760LN is a great tool for courses with adjacent homes,” says Brad Mace, product manager at ECHO Incorporated. “Since the PB-760LN has approximately the same sound output as that of a person speaking, golf course maintenance professionals using this blower will be able to perform their duties and still remain out of earshot of members and players out on the course.”
