Overview of the Little Wonder Optimax™ 9270-06-01

  • Power: The Optimax™ 9270-06-01 gas-powered blower, manufactured by Little Wonder, is rated for a max air volume of 2260 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and a max air speed of 143 MPH.
  • 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™ 9270-06-01 are an ideal choice. They are typically much more powerful than handheld or backpack blowers. All told, it weighs 148 lbs — the Little Wonder Optimax™ 9270-06-01 is neither the lightest nor the heaviest gas-powered walk-behind blower on the market.
  • Engine: This blower's Kohler engine has a displacement specification of 277 cc. 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™ 9270-06-01 offers variable speed settings.
  • Fuel Tank: Its impressive 236.8 fl. oz. tank capacity puts it on the higher end of the spectrum for similar gas-powered walk-behind leaf blowers.

The Little Wonder Optimax™ 9270-06-01's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Little Wonder Optimax™ 9270-06-01 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 143 MPH, which is on the lower end 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™ 9270-06-01 can reach 2260 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute), which is on par with other 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™ 9270-06-01 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.
