Today, ECHO Incorporated announced the release of a new low-noise backpack blower on the market, the ECHO PB-760LN.

The PB-760LN has a larger muffler, sound deadening insulation and a mid-pipe baffle, which help lower the machine’s sound output to 65 dB(A), which is measured per the industry standard for testing leaf blowers. Blowers with a rating of 65 dB(A) are quieter than blowers of older design. The annoying whine common to outdated leaf blowers, generated by the main impeller fan, is essentially gone on these models.

The PB-760LN features 535 cubic feet per minute (CFM) of air volume at 214 miles per hour, whereas the nearest competitor only manages 477 CFM and 177 miles per hour at the same decibel level.

“The PB-760LN is a great tool for those maintaining green spaces close to homes or noise sensitive areas such as hospitals and golf courses,” says Brad Mace, product manager at ECHO Incorporated. “Most pros associate low power with low noise in blower design. Grounds maintenance professionals and landscapers using the PB-760LN will have more than enough power to perform their duties more efficiently and with less disruption to noise sensitive spaces. The low noise of this blower will be very obvious to those familiar with standard backpack blower operation.”

ECHO offers the largest family of quiet handheld and backpack blowers on the market. For additional information about the low-noise ECHO PB-760LN, visit
