Description

For the commercial operator, RedMax is easily the industry leader in terms of the selection and performance of power blowers. The EBZ5150RH backpack blower features the Strato-Charged 2-stroke engine with ultra-low emissions and high power. With a 50.2 cc displacement and 2.3 horsepower, the EBZ5150RH produces a maximum air speed of 215 MPH with tube air flow approaching 435 CFM. The Max Cooled back pad uses air from the fan housing to cool operators and keep them comfortable during hot days. Super wide straps and contoured back pad are oversized for greater comfort. Comes standard with a tube mounted throttle. (source: RedMax)

Overview of the RedMax EBZ5150RH

  • Power: The EBZ5150RH gas-powered blower, manufactured by RedMax, is rated for a max air volume of 434 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and a max air speed of 215 MPH.
  • Handling: Like most backpack blowers, this model is technically heavier than a handheld. That being said, it can feel lighter and more comfortable because of the way it is carried, even when used over extended periods of time. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. When compared to other gas-powered backpack blowers, the RedMax EBZ5150RH stands out due to its lower weight: just 20.7 lbs.
  • Engine: Its Strato-Charged® engine boasts a displacement of 50.2 cc. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the EBZ5150RH cannot run on gasoline alone. The fuel must be mixed with an appropriate ratio of gasoline and oil in order for it to function properly (for this RedMax model, this ratio is 50:1).
  • Speed Settings: For those who are keen on having complete control while operating their leaf blower, the EBZ5150RH offers variable speed settings.
  • Noise: As far as gas-powered backpack blowers go, this one is average in terms of noise with a rating of 89 dB.
  • Fuel Tank: Its tank can hold 70.9 fl. oz., so it falls squarely in the average in terms of fuel capacity for backpack blowers.

The RedMax EBZ5150RH's performance versus other blowers

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 215 MPH, which is pretty much what is to be expected for gas-powered backpack blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Husqvarna 150BT and its 251 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • Regarding its air volume, the airflow of the RedMax EBZ5150RH can reach 434 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute), which is on the low end for gas-powered backpack blowers. For the highest air volume, you may want to have a look at the Shindaiwa EB910RT, which boasts with 1110 CFM.

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas backpack blowers, the RedMax EBZ5150RH is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget blower.

Strato-Charged Engine Technology

strato-charged logo

RedMax's Strato-Charged 2-stroke engines are efficiently designed with just 3 moving parts. This allows them to be up to 20% more fuel-efficient than standard 2-stroke engines, to be 20 to 25% lighter than 4-stroke engines of the same size, and to produce low emissions that meet regulations without the need for a heated, heavy catalytic converter. Offering much less operator fatigue, these engines have a high power to weight ratio and can therefore be classified as high-performance.

The bottom line

  • Inexpensive
  • Lightweight (20.7 lbs)
  • Strato-Charged® Engine
AVERAGE SPECS:
  • Decent tank (70.9 fl. oz.)
  • Acceptable noise (89 dB)
  • Decent MPH (215 MPH)

About RedMax

RedMax is an established power equipment brand in North America, known for its trimmers, chainsaws and, of course, leaf blowers. Interestingly, the company traces its roots back to Japan, where it was founded in 1910 as the Tokyo Gas Kogyo Company. TGCK went through numerous name changes and settled with the names Komatsu Zenoah (globally) and RedMax/Zenoah (North America), under which they sell their products to this day. The company was acquired by Husqvarna in 2007. RedMax has a somewhat extensive portfolio of more than 10 leaf blowers, both backpack and handheld, and has recently launched a battery powered product line. RedMax products are produced in various plants over the globe, which are not limited to Japan.
