Description

Overview of the RedMax EBZ8560RH

The RedMax EBZ8560RH in use

The RedMax EBZ8560RH

  • Power: The EBZ8560RH gas-powered blower, manufactured by RedMax, is rated for a maximum air volume of 1000 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and a maximum 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 located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. Be aware that, at 25.4 lbs, the RedMax EBZ8560RH is on the heavier side of gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Engine: The blower is fitted with a 75.6cc engine. Please be aware that 2-cycle engines like this one require a mixture of gas and oil in order to run. For the RedMax EBZ8560RH, this ratio is 50:1.
  • Speed Settings: There are times when you only need a little more power, while other times you will want a bit more precision when clearing leaves and debris. For this purpose, the EBZ8560RH offers variable speed settings, adding you, the user, more control, and a cruise control mode, which will allow you to maintain it comfortably for as long as you wish.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 106 dB, the EBZ8560RH is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the gas-powered backpack category.
  • Fuel Tank: The RedMax blower's fuel tank boasts a standard capacity of 77.8 fl. oz., aligning with the typical size found in gas backpack blowers.

The RedMax EBZ8560RH's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the RedMax EBZ8560RH compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Its maximum air speed of 220 MPH positions it solidly in the middle when compared to other 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 EBZ8560RH 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 RedMax EBZ9000RH, with 1245 CFM, could be in your good books.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other gas backpack blowers, the RedMax EBZ8560RH is on the expensive side of the price range.

While certainly not the cheapest of its kind, purchasing it could most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.

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
