  • Handling: For bigger jobs covering a large area or for those who simply want to keep their leaf blower on the ground, walk-behind leaf blowers such as the Little Wonder Optimax™ 9160-02-01 are an ideal choice.

  • Engine: This blower is fitted with a 163 cc Honda engine. As this is a 4-stroke engine, the blower does not require a mix of gas and oil in order to run.
  • Speed Settings: For those who are keen on having complete control while operating their leaf blower, the Optimax™ 9160-02-01 offers variable speed settings.
  • Fuel Tank: Its 106 fl. oz. fuel tank may be relatively low in capacity, but the decreased weight affords the Optimax™ 9160-02-01 greater comfort and ease of use.

The Little Wonder Optimax™ 9160-02-01's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Little Wonder Optimax™ 9160-02-01 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Maxing out at 153 MPH at full power, this blower is on the lower end in terms of air speed for gas-powered walk-behind blowers (the one expelling air at the fastest speed being the Little Wonder C5 99170-06-01 with 200 MPH).
  • Regarding its air volume, the airflow of the Little Wonder Optimax™ 9160-02-01 can reach 1397 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute), which is on the low end for gas-powered walk-behind leaf blowers (the biggest expelled air volume belonging to the Eliet BL 450 EZR with 3814 CFM).

OPTIMAX™ Technology

The Little Wonder Optimax™ 9160-02-01 benefits from a reversed angle fan blade that is a lot different from other blowers: it improves the fan efficiency and, when combined with a scrolled housing, allows the blower to move more air than many other wheeled blowers. The air deflector in an Optimax™ walk-behind leaf blower splits the airstream to direct the fastest moving air where it’s needed the most. Moreover, its low lying discharge chute gets the airflow closer to the surface. For surface treating, this allows it to clear small particles. For surface drying, this allows it to move standing water.

The bottom line

  • OPTIMAX™ Technology
  • Lightweight (108 lbs)
  • Small Tank (106 fl. oz.)
  • Low CFM (1397 CFM)
  • Low MPH (153 MPH)
