ECHO says that this is the most powerful blower in the world. They began with a 79.9cc engine to accomplish this. They then tweaked it to produce a whopping 1110 CFM and 220 MPH.
Our tests did not get the same outcome. It was greater. Keep in mind that ambient factors influence blower force, and we lack the controlled atmosphere of a lab. Regardless, the ECHO PB-9010T is by far the most powerful backpack blower we've ever tested.

When we evaluated the no longer available RedMax EBZ8500, we obtained some of the most outstanding Newton force values we had ever seen. You receive even more power, speed, and air volume with the replacement RedMax EBZ8550 (EBZ8550-RH for tube throttle). This gas leaf blower produces over 41 Newtons of blowing power while operating at 1077 CFM and 206 MPH with the round nozzle. That's astounding, and RedMax enthusiasts know these blowers last forever. The only one keeping this from being our top selection was the simplicity of Stihl's side-start function.
