What's MSRP on these? I like the competitive comparison. That's smart.

Ouch. Is that where dealers will actually be selling them? You could have an Echo PB251 with the rubber overmolded handle for that price and still have a 50 spot in your pocket.

Hi,
The MSRP is $259.99, but the MAP is $239.99. We'll probably do some things to help all dealers get done to at least $239.99. Keep in mind the new Stihl BG86 has a MSRP of $229.99.

But the Echo PB251 is right now about $159, and will go up maybe $10. That's a big difference in price.

5 year consumer warranty with ECHO, servicing dealers with ECHO. Does TANAKA have 5 year warranty. The local TANAKA dealer listed for our area doesn't have parts or equipment. $159.99 sounds like a better deal all around!

Default right

You're right, the Echo is not a bad blower for the price. However, the 260PF primarily competes with the Stihl, Redmax, and Shindaiwa EB212 (Echo).

Hopefully next year we can offer a $159.99 blower.

I guess I'm still learning about the Shinecho models. Is the EB212 not a rebadged pb251?
