Should You Use a Pro Paddle or a Pro Sweep Attachment?

By Mark Thomas from Thomas Homes, Inc

Hi guys, Mark here from Mark Thomas Builder, and today I want to show you the difference between a paddle and sweep, if you use any of the ECHO Pro Attachment Series.

I’ve used both of these over the last 4-5 months, so wanted to show you what I like about each one so you can make the right decision on what one’s best for you.

As you can see from the video, I’ve used on snow, mulch, and a bunch of other stuff. This particular video uses the ECHO PAS-280, which I’ve had for about three years now, and it does a great job.

Some additional specs:

  • They both have an MRP of $299 each

  • They both weigh 11.2lbs

  • The Pro Sweep has about 2” extra sweeping swathe

  • The Pro Sweep has nylon brushes and a heavy duty gearbox

  • The Pro Paddle has industrial rubber fins

I hope this helps, guys, and let me know if you’ve used either the Pro Paddle or the Pro Sweep, and how you found they compare to each other.
