Overview of the Little Wonder Optimax™ 9270-12-01

  • Power: The Little Wonder Optimax™ 9270-12-01 is a gas-powered blower with a maximum air volume rating of 2260 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an 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™ 9270-12-01 are an ideal choice. They are typically much more powerful than handheld or backpack blowers. This walk-behind blower is also self-propelled, a feature that makes pushing it around easy despite its heaviness.

  • Engine: This blower is fitted with a 270 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™ 9270-12-01 offers variable speed settings.
  • Fuel Tank: It has an average fuel capacity, with a tank able to hold around 179.2 fl. oz of fuel.

Price comparison

As you can see from this dynamic chart, when compared to other gas walk-behind blowers, the Little Wonder Optimax™ 9270-12-01 is on the expensive side of the price range.

While certainly not the cheapest of its kind, purchasing it would most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.

OPTIMAX™ Technology

The Little Wonder Optimax™ 9270-12-01 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

  • Self-Propelled
  • OPTIMAX™ Technology
  • Decent Tank (179.2 fl. oz.)
  • Decent CFM (2260 CFM)
  • On the expensive side
  • Quite heavy (202 lbs)
  • Low MPH (143 MPH)
