Description

Overview of the RedMax HBZ260R

  • Power: The HBZ260R gas-powered blower, manufactured by RedMax, is rated for a max air volume of 459 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and a max air speed of 157 MPH.
  • Handling: Being handheld, this blower has a good maneuverability and is meant to be easier to carry around over a small period of time. Among other gas-powered handheld blowers, the RedMax HBZ260R can be considered light, weighing only 9.5 lbs.
  • Engine: This blower is fitted with a 25.4 cc Strato-Charged® engine. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the HBZ260R 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: Thanks to its variable speed settings, the RedMax HBZ260R allows precise control of the air output.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 105 dB can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered handheld blowers.
  • Fuel Tank: With a capacity of 15.2 fl. oz., this RedMax blower is average when compared to other gas-powered handheld leaf blowers.

Strato-Charged Engine Technology

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:
  • Strato-Charged® Engine
  • Lightweight (9.5 lbs)
AVERAGE SPECS:
  • Decent Tank (15.2 fl. oz.)
  • Acceptable Noise (105 dB)
  • Decent CFM (459 CFM)

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.
