Echo PB 580T comes with 5 years of standard warranty whereas Husqvarna 150 BT has a standard warranty of 2 years only.  Hence if there is a glitch in the Echo PB 580T blower, the spare parts would be replaced without having to pay for the parts when compared to Husqvarna 150T. Though the preferred choice among professionals is Husqvarna 150T, Echo is preferred among the individuals for domestic and home use. The difference is not much when it comes to durability of the product and again is based on the individual choices.

Comparatively the price of Husqvarna 150BT is slightly lesser when compared to Echo PB 580T. Generally Echo PB 580T caters to the premium segment of customers and hence again it all boils down to the individuals choice whether they opt for a premium product or a product which is similar in function with a lesser price.
