Description

Overview of the RedMax EBZ8560RH

  • Power: The RedMax EBZ8560RH is a gas-powered blower with a maximum air volume rating of 1000 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an 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 located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. However, for a gas-powered backpack blower, the RedMax EBZ8560RH is heavier than most, weighing 25.4 lbs.
  • Engine: This blower's engine has a displacement specification of 75.6 cc. 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: To provide more control over their job to the user, the unit has a variable speed control setting. No matter the size of the job, the user can adjust the airflow of the RedMax EBZ8560RH to match it. On top of that, maintaining the selected speed is effortless, as it also features cruise control.
  • 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: It has an average fuel capacity for a backpack blower, with a tank that holds around 77.8 fl. oz of fuel.

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.

  • The RedMax EBZ8560RH 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.
  • If air volume is an important feature, the EBZ8560RH by RedMax will not disappoint. Its airflow maxes out at 1000 CFM (cubic feet per minute), which is more powerful than most gas-powered backpack blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Shindaiwa EB910RT, 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.
