Description

A lightweight backpack blower designed for commercial use. At 632 CFM and 232 MPH this machine has the air volume to move heavy debris and the speed to lift wet leaves and compacted sand. For added durability, the EBZ6500 is designed with a frame mounted throttle virtually eliminating downtime due to damaged cables. The Strato-Charged engine reduces fuel consumption by up to 20% while providing more torque over a wider RPM range.

Overview of the RedMax EBZ6500

  • Power: The RedMax EBZ6500 is a gas-powered blower with a maximum air volume rating of 631 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed of 232 MPH.
  • Handling: By design, this model isn’t the smallest leaf blower on the market. It’s meant to be carried as a backpack so that the bulk of the unit is out of the way and the user’s hands are free to manipulate the nozzle. Its throttle is hip-mounted, which can make it easier on your right hand if you operate it over an extended period of time. At 22.7 lbs, the RedMax EBZ6500 is within the average weight range of gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Engine: Its Strato-Charged® engine boasts a displacement of 65.6 cc. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the EBZ6500 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: Thanks to its variable speed settings, the RedMax EBZ6500 allows precise control of the air output.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 97.1 dB, the EBZ6500 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 71 fl. oz of fuel.

The RedMax EBZ6500's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the RedMax EBZ6500 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 232 MPH, which is rather impressive for a gas-powered backpack blower. 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.
  • Regarding its air volume, the airflow of the RedMax EBZ6500 can reach 631 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute), which is on par with other gas-powered backpack blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Echo PB-9010T, with 1110 CFM, could be in your good books.

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

  • In the expected price range
  • Strato-Charged® Engine
  • High MPH (232 MPH)
AVERAGE SPECS:
  • Decent weight (22.7 lbs)

  • The RedMax EBZ6500 doesn't have any notably low specs.

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.
