Mega Backpack Blower Comparison: Stihl BR-600 & 700, the NEW ECHO PB-8010, PB-770

You know the fall is coming when Starbucks starts promoting its Pumpkin Spice Latte and lawn care pros start dreaming of their backpack blowers!

Yes, it's that time of the year again and this week's YouTube Roundup reflects this with a slew of comparison videos featuring what some have called the “mega blowers.” And with the GIE show coming up, everyone's buzzing about getting their hands on the latest blowers in advance of the fall cleanups.

Check out a sampling of these videos from YouTube this week.

Testing The Force of Air

UAG member Bradley Behr of Copper Creek Cuts surely knows how to shoot a great comparison video. He walks you through such specifications as weight, size of air tubes and filters, blowing power, speed of both models, and more. Also, check out the very unusual way Bradley invented to test the amount and force of air from both blowers.
