If you are choosing between these two, I would choose the Echo. More dependable and will last longer then the Craftsman unit which is a Poulan.

I don't know. I can look into it, but I expect the "c" designation is due to either a revision in the unit, or some detail that is changed for the unit to be sold at a box store.

Got the PB251 from a local dealer. Home depot is across the street for the same price. Dealer did a startup right there and all the warranty work. Has more power than my old sears 32cc.

Good move! Thanks for choosing to contribute to small business! I think you'll be happy with the blower and the service from your dealer if the need arises.
