Description

Overview of the RedMax HBZ260R

  • Power: The RedMax HBZ260R is a gas-powered blower with a maximum air volume rating of 459 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed of 157 MPH.
  • Handling: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds. Among other gas-powered handheld blowers, the RedMax HBZ260R can be considered light, weighing only 9.5 lbs.
  • Engine: This blower's Strato-Charged® engine has a displacement specification of 25.4 cc. Please note that, because the RedMax HBZ260R’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: Sometimes you just need a little more power, while other times you may want a little more precision when moving leaves and debris. That’s why the HBZ260R features variable speed settings for added control.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 105 dB, the HBZ260R is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the gas-powered handheld category.
  • Fuel Tank: Its tank can hold 15.2 fl. oz., so it falls squarely in the average in terms of fuel capacity.

Strato-Charged Engine Technology

strato-charged logo

RedMax's Strato-Charged 2-stroke engines are efficiently designed with just 3 moving parts. This allows them to be up to 20% more fuel-efficient than standard 2-stroke engines, to be 20 to 25% lighter than 4-stroke engines of the same size, and to produce low emissions that meet regulations without the need for a heated, heavy catalytic converter. Offering much less operator fatigue, these engines have a high power to weight ratio and can therefore be classified as high-performance.

The bottom line

STRENGTHS:
  • Lightweight (9.5 lbs)
  • Strato-Charged® Engine
AVERAGE SPECS:
  • Decent tank (15.2 fl. oz.)
  • Acceptable noise (105 dB)
  • Decent CFM (459 CFM)
WEAKNESSES:
  • On the expensive side
  • Low MPH (157 MPH)

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.
