Description

Overview of the RedMax EBZ8560

  • Power: The EBZ8560 gas-powered blower, manufactured by RedMax, is rated for a max air volume of 1000 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and a max air speed of 220 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. Be aware that, at 25.5 lbs, the RedMax EBZ8560 is on the heavier side of gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Engine: The engine boasts a displacement of 75.6 cc. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the EBZ8560 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: 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 EBZ8560 to match.
  • Noise: As far as gas-powered backpack blowers go, this one is average in terms of noise with a rating of 106 dB.
  • Fuel Tank: With a capacity of 77.8 fl. oz., this RedMax blower is average compared to other gas backpack blowers.

The RedMax EBZ8560's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the RedMax EBZ8560 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • The RedMax EBZ8560 expels air at speeds up to 220 MPH, making it standard 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.
  • The EBZ8560 is powerful, with an airflow rating of 1000 CFM (cubic feet per minute). This is certainly on the high end compared to 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.

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.

Warranty Information

The RedMax EBZ8560 is covered under a warranty for up to 2 years. This warranty may not cover all parts of the blower.
