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, built by RedMax, is a gas-powered leaf blower capable of expelling a maximum air volume of 434 cubic feet per minute (CFM). Its air speed is rated at 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. As you may or may not know, 2-stroke engines require a mixture of gasoline and oil in order to keep all the moving parts lubricated while fuelling the engine’s internal combustion. The fuel/oil ratio recommended by RedMax for the EBZ5150RH is 50:1.
  • Speed Settings: In order to afford more control to the user, this unit has a variable speed control. No matter the size of the job, the user can adjust the airflow of the RedMax EBZ5150RH to match.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 89 dB, the EBZ5150RH is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the gas-powered backpack category.
  • Fuel Tank: It has an average fuel capacity for a backpack blower, with a tank that holds around 70.9 fl. oz of fuel.

The RedMax EBZ5150RH's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the RedMax EBZ5150RH compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Forced air leaving this blower’s nozzle has been clocked at 215 MPH. That makes the EBZ5150RH average in terms of air speed for gas-powered backpack blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Husqvarna 150BT and its 270 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • Its max air volume rating (434 cubic feet per minute) means it is really not the biggest air producer of gas-powered backpack blowers. For the highest air volume, you may want to have a look at the Echo PB-9010T, which boasts with 1110 CFM.

Price comparison

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

Therefore, this blower nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of product.

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

STRENGTHS:
  • In the expected price range
  • Lightweight (20.7 lbs)
  • Strato-Charged® Engine
AVERAGE SPECS:
  • Decent tank (70.9 fl. oz.)
  • Acceptable noise (89 dB)
  • Decent MPH (215 MPH)
WEAKNESSES:
  • Low CFM (434 CFM)

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.
