Description

Overview of the RedMax EBZ8560

  • Power: The RedMax EBZ8560 is a gas-powered blower with a maximum air volume rating of 1000 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed of 220 miles per hour (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. However, for a gas-powered backpack blower, the RedMax EBZ8560 is heavier than most, weighing 25.5 lbs.
  • Engine: The engine boasts a displacement of 75.6cc. 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 EBZ8560 is 50:1.
  • Speed Settings: Thanks to its variable speed settings, the RedMax EBZ8560 allows precise control of the air output.
  • Noise: For gas-powered backpack blowers, the EBZ8560's 106 dB noise rating can be considered fairly typical.
  • Fuel Tank: With a capacity of 77.8 fl. oz., this RedMax blower is average compared to other gas backpack blowers.

  • Regarding its air volume, the RedMax EBZ8560 boasts an impressive airflow that can reach 1000 CFM (Cubic Foot per Minute). This places it amongst the most powerful gas-powered backpack blowers. If air volume is important to you, the RedMax EBZ9000RH, with 1245 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.

    Redmax 8560 is a game changer! I was running a Stihl Br600 for 11 years and started having issues, gasket seal, oil rings, throttle cable but a noticable loss in power. Replaced the gasket seal, but still having issues with lagging power. Pulled the plug on a Ebz8560 when my dealer had a promo for it selling it for $589 dropped from $649! WOW what a massive massive beast!! You will not see its full power until about the 2nd refuel…at that point your carb is all dialed in, and that blower can torque you off kilter if your footing isnt secure! It is a little thirsty, but that is the only down side. Weight is evenly distributed so it makes having a 77oz fuel tank filled not so bad. It is a little harder to start than the br600 tho.. redmax takes a good 5-7 pulls before it starts. The stihl always started on the 1st or 2nd pull. (Per redmax instruction it says prime no more than 3 pumps, stihl would get 5 pumps) not sure if that is making the difference. Just a true 2 cycle commercial machine. If your in the market for a no nonsense powerhouse without a 4mix or bells and whistles, this is your machine. Power for days and quite comfortable!
