OPTIMAX™ Technology

The Little Wonder Optimax™ 9270-03-01 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
  • Decent Tank (204.8 fl. oz.)
  • Decent Weight (140 lbs)
  • Decent CFM (2260 CFM)
  • Low MPH (143 MPH)
