Overview of the DR X20 MAXSP

The DR X20 MAXSP in use

The DR X20 MAXSP

  • Power: The DR X20 MAXSP is a gas-powered leaf blower. It sports a max air speed of 200 MPH and a max air volume rating of 2000 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • Handling: Walk-behind blowers such as the DR X20 MAXSP are the most powerful. They are wheeled, heavy, have to be pushed and are mostly used by professionals. The unit features two 12" pneumatic wheels at the back, as a well as a front wheel that unfortunately does not swivel (swivel wheel accessory available as a separate purchase). That said, the lack of swivel wheel can't be seen as a dealbreaker, since the machine benefits from DR's EZ-Turn steering technology (more about it below). This push blower is also self-propelled, a feature that makes pushing it around easy despite its heaviness. A lever located near the handle bar can be held at different locations between fully depressed and fully released to vary traction speeds as needed.
  • EZ-Turn™ steering technology: DR's EZ-Turn™ Steering technology makes cornering easy, without the need for a swivel wheel. Each of the machine's axles drives independently, so you never have to manhandle the unit to make tight, 180° turns.
  • Engine: The unit is powered by a 301cc DR OHV engine. While this engine has a traditional recoil starter, it is also features an electric start (battery included). As this is a 4-stroke engine, the blower does not require a mix of gas and oil in order to run.
  • Speed Settings: Thanks to its variable speed settings, the DR X20 MAXSP allows precise control of the air output.
  • Adjustable Air Flow: The unit allows the user to fully control the air stream direction, directly from the handle. With 50° of vertical nozzle rotation, it is possible to either aim low to dislodge wet or matted materials, or high to blow dry materials farther. In addition to that, airflow can also be laterally adjusted over 180°. The operator can decide to blow to their right, their front, their left, or anywhere in between.
  • Fuel Tank: It has an average fuel capacity for a walk-behind blower, with a tank that holds around 182.6 fl. oz of fuel.
