The  25cc ones?  I always wondered how they were. They were to close to the husky in price so I went orange.

Havent read this but has the 8 popular hand held ones.

For many years I've had a Echo PB2400 hand held blower that I like very well. I had to put a metering valve diaphragm, fuel lines, and primer bulb in it about 4 years ago. I probably should put a new grommet in the tank for the vent and fuel lines? It seeps around the edges a little.

I also have a matching SRM2400 straight shaft whacker as my favorite over the several Stihl FS55R's I have. This Echo has had the same rubber problems with the fuel system as the Echo blower.

These Echos are somewhere around 17-18 years old. The 24cc engine is a real torque engine but was discontinued some years ago for EPA reasons when they brought out the new engines.

I have one of the Craftsman leaf blowers.  I got it for free because it had low compression.   Turns out it had a stuck ring.   Tore all down clean it and put it all back together and did not have to replace any gaskets or anything.   That was 2 years ago and still running good.

I had two Craftsman blowers and the daughter in law straight gassed them both. They worked as well as my Echo until their end.

started number 2 clean looked new 2014 epa sticker . showed 60 pounds compression. removed muffler side cover. was able to remove cylinder by clipping a little plastic to make room for allen wrench.  cylinder is chrome piston looked ok . now what i did next might be stupid i heated top of piston with propane torch not a lot but ring turned loose.  let it cool put it in ultrasonic parts cleaner.  don't know if i changed hardness of piston or ring . rind was only stuck with bad gas goo not aluminum. I guess test run will tell if this method is stupid.  update when i test it ???

started number 3 with it inside I could see spark so I checked compression 110 pound. put in fresh mix pulled a dozen times  fired off .  let it warm up adjusted h screw she ran good.   I will run it a few more times but I think it's gonna be fine.
