Description

Overview of the RedMax EBZ8550RH

  • Power: The EBZ8550RH, built by RedMax, is a gas-powered leaf blower capable of expelling a maximum air volume of 941 cubic feet per minute (CFM). Its air speed is rated at 206 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. Be aware that, at 24.9 lbs, the RedMax EBZ8550RH is on the heavier side for gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Engine: This blower's engine has a displacement specification of 75.6 cc. Please note that, because the RedMax EBZ8550RH’s engine is a 2-cycle one, it runs on a mixture of oil and gasoline. According to RedMax, the proper fuel mixture ratio for this blower is 50:1.
  • Speed Settings: For those who are keen on having complete control while operating their leaf blower, the EBZ8550RH offers variable speed settings.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 103 dB can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Fuel Tank: It has an average fuel capacity, with a tank able to hold around 77.8 fl. oz of fuel.

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.
