SAFETY
PB-580 H/T
Personal Condition and Safety Equipment
Users of this product risk injury to themselves and others if the unit is used improperly and/or safety
precautions are not followed. Proper clothing and safety gear must be worn when operating unit.
Physical Condition
Your judgment and physical dexterity may not be good:
• If you are tired or sick.
• If you are taking medication.
• If you have taken alcohol or drugs.
Operate unit only if you are physically and mentally well.
Eye Protection
• Eye protection that meets ANSI Z87.1 or CE requirements must be worn whenever you operate the
unit.
• For additional safety, a full-face shield may be worn over safety glasses or goggles to provide
protection from sharp branches or flying debris.
Hand Protection
Wear sturdy, no-slip, rubber work gloves to improve your grip on the handles. Gloves also provide protection
against cuts and scratches, cold environments, and reduce the transmission of machine vibration to your
hands.
Hearing/Ear Protection
ECHO recommends wearing hearing protection whenever unit is used.
Breathing Protection
Operators who are sensitive to dust or other common airborne allergens may need to wear a dust mask to
prevent inhaling these materials while operating unit. Dust masks can provide protection against dust, plant
debris, and other plant matter such as pollen. Make sure the mask does not impair your vision, and replace
the mask as needed to prevent air restrictions.
Proper Clothing
Wear snug-fitting, durable clothing:
• Pants should have long legs, shirts should have long sleeves.
• DO NOT WEAR SHORTS.
• DO NOT WEAR TIES, SCARVES, JEWELRY, or clothing with loose or hanging items that could become
entangled in moving parts or surrounding growth.
• Keep clothing buttoned or zipped, and keep shirt tails tucked in.
Wear sturdy work shoes with nonskid rubber soles:
• DO NOT WEAR OPEN TOED SHOES.

PB-580 H/T
SAFETY
• DO NOT OPERATE UNIT BAREFOOTED.
Keep long hair away from engine and air intake. Retain hair with cap or net.
Heavy protective clothing can increase operator fatigue, which may lead to heat stroke. Schedule heavy
work for early morning or late afternoon hours when temperatures are cooler.
The components of this machine generate an electromagnetic field during operation, which may
interfere with some pacemakers. To reduce the risk of serious or fatal injury, persons with
pacemakers should consult with their physician and the pacemaker manufacturer before operating
this machine. In the absence of such information, ECHO does not recommend the use of this
machine by anyone who has a pacemaker.
Extended Operation / Extreme Conditions
Prolonged exposure to cold and/or vibration may result in injury. Read and follow all safety and
operation instructions to minimize risk of injury. Failure to follow instructions may result in painful
wrist/hand/arm injuries.
It is believed that a condition called Raynaud’s Phenomenon, which affects the fingers of certain individuals,
may be brought about by exposure to vibration and cold. Exposure to vibration and cold may cause tingling
and burning sensations, followed by loss of color and numbness in the fingers. The following precautions are
strongly recommended, because the minimum exposure, which might trigger the ailment, is unknown.
• Keep your body warm, especially the head, neck, feet, ankles,
hands, and wrists.
• Maintain good blood circulation by performing vigorous arm
exercises during frequent work breaks, and also by not
smoking.
• Limit the hours of operation. Try to fill each day with jobs
where operating the unit or other hand-held power equipment
is not required.
• If you experience discomfort, redness, and swelling of the
fingers followed by whitening and loss of feeling, consult your physician before further exposing yourself to
cold and vibration.

SAFETY
PB-580 H/T
Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI)
It is believed that overusing the muscles and tendons of the fingers,
hands, arms, and shoulders may cause soreness, swelling,
numbness, weakness, and extreme pain in those areas. Certain
repetitive hand activities may put you at a high risk for developing a
Repetitive Stress Injury (RSI). An extreme RSI condition is Carpal
Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), which could occur when your wrist swells
and squeezes a vital nerve that runs through the area. Some believe
that prolonged exposure to vibration may contribute to CTS. CTS
can cause severe pain for months or even years.
To reduce the risk of RSI/CTS, do the following:
• Avoid using your wrist in a bent, extended, or twisted position.
Instead try to maintain a straight wrist position. Also, when
grasping, use your whole hand, not just the thumb and index finger.
• Take periodic breaks to minimize repetition and rest your hands.
• Reduce the speed and force with which you do the repetitive movement.
• Do exercise to strengthen the hand and arm muscles.
• Immediately stop using all power equipment and consult a doctor if you feel tingling, numbness, or pain in
the fingers, hands, wrists, or arms. The sooner RSI/CTS is diagnosed, the more likely permanent nerve
and muscle damage can be prevented.
All over head electrical conductors and communications wires can have electricity flow with high
voltages. This unit is not insulated against electrical current. Never touch wires directly or indirectly,
otherwise serious injury or death may result.
Do not operate this product indoors or in inadequately ventilated areas. Engine exhaust contains
poisonous emissions and can cause serious injury or death.
Read the Manual
• Provide all users of this equipment with the Operator’s Manual for instructions on Safe Operation.
Clear the Work Area
• Clear the area of children, bystanders, and pets. At a minimum, keep all children, bystanders, and pets
outside a 15 m (50 ft) radius; outside the 15 m (50 ft) zone, there is still a risk of injury from thrown objects.
Bystanders should be encouraged to wear eye protection. If you are approached, stop the engine.
• Avoid blowing debris towards people, pets, open windows, or vehicles when using unit.
• Review area to be cleared. Look for potential hazards such as stones or metal objects.
Keep a Firm Grip
• Hold the handle in one hand, with thumb and fingers encircling the handle.

• Maintain footing and balance at all times. Do not stand on slippery, uneven or unstable surfaces. Do not
work in odd positions or on ladders. Do not over reach.
Avoid Hot Surfaces
• Keep exhaust area clear of flammable debris. Avoid contact
during and immediately after operation.
Equipment

OPERATION
Moving parts can amputate fingers or cause severe injuries. Keep hands, clothing and loose objects
away from all openings. Always stop engine, disconnect spark plug, and make sure all moving parts
have come to a complete stop before removing obstructions, clearing debris, or servicing unit.
Blower housing may contain shredder blades and other sharp edges that can cause serious injuries
if touched, even if engine is off and blades are not moving. Wear gloves to protect hands from sharp
edges and hot surfaces.
Operation of this equipment may create sparks that can start fires. This unit is equipped with a spark
arrestor to prevent discharge of hot particles from the engine. Metal cutters can also create sparks if
the cutter strikes rocks, metal, or other hard objects. Contact local fire authorities for laws or
regulations regarding fire prevention requirements.

PB-580 H/T
OPERATION
Fuel
Alternative fuels, such as E-15 (15% ethanol), E-85 (85% ethanol) or any fuels not meeting ECHO
requirements are NOT approved for use in ECHO 2-stroke gasoline engines. Use of alternative fuels
may cause performance problems, loss of power, overheating, fuel vapor lock, and unintended
machine operation, including, but not limited to, improper clutch engagement. Alternative fuels may
also cause premature deterioration of fuel lines, gaskets, carburetors and other engine components.
Fuel Requirements
Gasoline - Use 89 Octane [R+M/2] (mid grade or higher) gasoline known to be good quality. Gasoline may
contain up to 10% Ethanol (grain alcohol) or 15% MTBE (methyl tertiary-butyl ether). Gasoline containing
methanol (wood alcohol) is NOT approved. ECHO brand Power Fuel™ is 93 octane, ethanol-free fuel
premixed with ECHO Red Armor® engine oil at 50:1 ratio. Use of ECHO Power Fuel™ is recommended to
extend engine life in all air-cooled 2-stroke and 2/4-stroke hybrid engines.
Two Stroke Oil - A two-stroke engine oil meeting ISO-L-EGD (ISO/CD 13738) and J.A.S.O. FD Standards
must be used. Echo brand premium Power Blend X™ Universal 2-Stroke Oil meets these standards. Engine
problems due to inadequate lubrication caused by failure to use an ISO-L-EGD (ISO/CD 13738) and
J.A.S.O. M345-FD certified oil, such as Echo premium Power Blend X™, will void the two-stroke engine
warranty.
Echo premium Power Blend X™ Universal 2-Stroke Oil may be mixed at 50:1 ratio for application in all Echo
engines sold in the past regardless of ratio specified in those manuals.
Handling Fuel
Fuel is VERY flammable. Use extreme care when mixing, storing or handling, or serious personal
injury may result.
• Use an approved fuel container.
• DO NOT smoke near fuel.
• DO NOT allow flames or sparks near fuel.
• Fuel tanks/cans may be under pressure. Always loosen fuel caps slowly allowing pressure to
equalize.
• NEVER refuel a unit when the engine is HOT or RUNNING!
• DO NOT fill fuel tanks indoors. ALWAYS fill fuel tanks outdoors over bare ground.
• DO NOT overfill fuel tank. Wipe up spills immediately.
• Securely tighten fuel tank cap and close fuel container after refueling.
• Inspect for fuel leakage. If fuel leakage is found, do not start or operate unit until leakage is
repaired.
• Move at least 3 m (10 ft.) from refueling location before starting the engine.

Operating Blower
Engine exhaust IS HOT, and contains Carbon Monoxide (CO), a poison gas. Breathing CO can cause
unconsciousness, serious injury, or death. Exhaust can cause serious burns. ALWAYS position
unit so that exhaust is directed away from your face and body.
Always wear safety glasses, hearing protection and a face filter mask or serious personal injury may
result. Do not point the blower pipe in the direction of people or pets.
Use reduced speed only when performing light-duty tasks or to comply with local noise regulations.
Continuous low speed operation may allow fuel/oil residue to build-up on the piston and cause rapid build-up
of carbon on the spark arrestor screen, resulting in overheating and engine damage. To reduce harmful
build-up, run engine at wide open throttle for at least 5 minutes every hour, and inspect/clean the spark
arrestor screen after approximately 40 hours of operation.
Read the Safety Section carefully.
To avoid engine damage due to over-revving, do not block blower pipe.
1. Use only during appropriate hours. Contact your local government for the ordinances affecting your area.
2. To reduce sound levels, limit the number of pieces of equipment used at any one time.
3. Allow the engine to warm up at a fast idle for a few minutes. PB-580 H

7. Higher speed may be necessary to move gravel, dirt, snow,
bottles or cans from a driveway, street, parking lot or
stadium.
8. Always stop unit using stop engine procedure.
Note: Never use a higher speed setting than necessary to perform a task. Remember, the higher the engine
speed, the louder the blower noise.
9. Minimize dust by using blower at lower speeds or dampen surface with water. Blower can be used to
clean most surfaces when water conservation is desired.
10. Use the full blower pipe configuration when blowing.
11. After using blowers and other equipment, CLEAN UP! Dispose of debris in trash receptacles.
Contacting blower pipe tip on abrasive surfaces can create sharp cutting edges and can result in
personal injury if touched. Do not scrape or drag blower pipe tip when operating or transporting
unit. Replace blower pipe assembly if protective metal ring is worn, cracked or deformed.

Cooling System
Level 2.
Parts Required:
None if you are careful.
To maintain proper engine operating temperatures, cooling air must pass freely through the cylinder fin area.
This flow of air carries combustion heat away from the engine.
Overheating and engine seizure can occur when:
• Air intakes are blocked, preventing cooling air from reaching
the cylinder.
• Dust and grass build up on the outside of the cylinder. This
build up insulates the engine and prevents the heat from
leaving.
Removal of cooling passage blockages or cleaning of cooling
fins is considered “Normal Maintenance.” Any failure
attributed to lack of maintenance is not warranted.
Cleaning Grill
1. Brush accumulated debris from intake grill between backpack frame and blower housing.

Carburetor Adjustment
Engine Break-In
New engines must be operated a minimum duration of two tanks of fuel break-in before carburetor
adjustments can be made. During the break-in period your engine performance will increase and exhaust
emissions will stabilize. Idle speed can be adjusted as required.
High Altitude Operation
This engine has been factory adjusted to maintain satisfactory starting, emission, and durability
performance up to 1,100 feet above sea level (ASL) (96.0 kPa). To maintain proper engine operation and
emission compliance above 1,100 feet ASL the carburetor may need to be adjusted by an authorized service
dealer.
If the engine is adjusted for operation above 1,100 feet ASL, the carburetor must be re-adjusted when
operating the engine below 1,100 feet ASL, otherwise severe engine damage may result.

WARRANTY STATEMENTS
PB-580 H/T
ECHO does not offer an over the counter exchange program. Any ECHO product re-built other than by ECHO or sold through an unauthorized
dealer, or an unauthorized outlet store, is sold without ECHO’s limited warranty coverage. The ECHO Limited Warranty coverage is extended
to the original purchaser only, and is not transferable except for emission related parts. Repair parts and accessories replaced under this
warranty are warranted only for the balance of the original unit or accessory warranty period. Any damage caused by improper installation or
improper maintenance is not covered by this warranty. All parts or products replaced under warranty become the property of ECHO.

• 90-day homeowner, or non-income producing warranty
• 30-day commercial, institutional, agricultural, industrial, income producing, or rental application warranty
ATTENTION TWO-STROKE ENGINE POWER PRODUCT OWNERS
This ECHO two-stroke engine power product is a quality-engineered unit which has been manufactured to exact tolerances to provide superior
performance. To help ensure the performance of the unit, it is required to use two-stroke oil which meets the ISO-L-EGD Standard per ISO/CD
13738 and JASO M345FD Standards. (&+23RZHU%OHQGŒ7ZR6WURNH2LO LVDSUHPLXPWZRVWURNHRLOVSHFL¿FDOO\IRUPXODWHGWRPHHW,62
L-EGD (ISO/CD 13738) and JASO M345FD Standards. The use of two-stroke oils designed for other applications, such as for outboard motors
or lawnmowers can result in severe engine damage, and will void your two-stroke engine limited warranty.
THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER DAMAGE CAUSED BY:
•
Lack of lubrication or engine failure, due to the use of two-stroke oils that do not meet the ISO-L-EGD (ISO/CD 13738) and JASO M345FD
Standards. Engine problems due to inadequate lubrication caused by failure to use an ISO-L-EGD compliant and JASO M345FD registered
oil, will void the two-stroke engine limited warranty. ECHO Power Blend™ Two-Stroke Oil meets the ISO-L-EGD and JASO M345FD
Standard. Emission related parts are covered for 5 years homeowner use or 2 years commercial use regardless of two-stroke oil used, per
the statement listed in the EPA or California Emission Defect Warranty Explanation.
•
Damage caused by use of gasohol, containing methanol (wood alcohol), or gasoline containing less than 89 octane. Only use gasoline which
contains 89 octane or higher. Gasohol which contains a PD[LPXP 10% ethanol (grain alcohol) or 15% MTBE (methyl/tertiary/butyl/ether)
is also approved. The prescribed mixing ratio of gasoline to oil is listed on the ECHO oil label and covered in your operator’s manual.
