  • Noise: With a noise rating of 72 dB, this blower can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered handheld blowers.
  • Fuel Tank: It has an average fuel capacity, with a tank able to hold around 14 fl. oz of fuel.
  • QuickStart™: This blower benefits from Remington's QuickStart™ technology. It facilitates starting by reducing the effort required to pull start the engine.

    About Remington

    Remington was founded in 1921 by Arthur Mall in his home town of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The one-man operation focused on production of gas and electrically powered power tools. The company has further expanded throughout the US. However, it remains one of the smaller manufacturers to this day. Leaf blowers have been added to Remington’s portfolio in the 1990’s. Their selection is comprised predominantly of handheld blowers, many of which are cordless and function as leaf vacuums. Pricewise, Remington leaf blowers fall into the middle tier. Remington products are manufactured both in the US and Mexico.

    Warranty Information

    The Remington HERO™ RM430 is covered under a warranty for up to 2 years. This warranty may not cover all parts of the blower.
    For more information about the warranty of Remington blowers, please contact the Remington Customer Support: 1-866-206-2707.
