ECHO PB-2520 Handheld Gas Blower vs Milwaukee M18 FUEL Cordless Blower Head to Head Comparison

Recently, Keith Kalfas of Landscape Employee Trap compared the ECHO PB-2520 handheld gas blower with the Milwaukee M18 FUEL cordless blower.

Powering both up for an individual look first, Keith then compares in a side-to-side match-up to see how they stack up against each other.

As Keith shares, both have their various strengths and are excellent options based on use.

And Keith's preference between the ECHO PB-2520 and the Milwaukee M18 FUEL? The answer is in the video.

ECHO PB-2520


  • Most powerful handheld he's ever used (comparable to the smaller backpack blowers)

  • Could replace the BR-700

  • Lightweight and easy to use


  • Big fall clean-ups would probably be better served by backpack blowers

Milwaukee M18 FUEL


  • Perfect for quick spot touching up something you might have missed

  • The design allows the velocity of the wind to blow straight ahead

  • Ergonomic, plug-in-and-go operating


  • Lack of motor could see it as less powerful than gas-powered
