Re: ECHO PB-770H vs. STIHL BR600

By way of update, I ended up going with the Stihl BR700 which, for an extra $50, gave me another 300-something CFM. I couldn’t resist. So far I’m very happy with its power and performance. Cleaned up the yard real quick (and took about 1/3 of the time it took me last year with my handheld Stihl BG86...

Thanks guys! @corneliani @CoopyHarry

Definitely something to work with here. I’m going to research this option a bit further. I’ll definitely need more than the 50 ft of cable that comes in the set.

Re: Winter Projects | 2020

Hoping to build a workbench for my shed. I need something relatively simple to build as I don’t have the tools for a more complicated build and also short on time.
