  • Engine: This blower's engine has a displacement specification of 25 cc. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the HERO™ RM430 cannot run on gasoline alone.

  • Speed Settings: With its variable speed settings, the Remington HERO™ RM430 allows you to precisely control its air output. In addition, the blower is also equipped with cruise control, with which the user can easily maintain the selected settings.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 72 dB 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.

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.

    Bought the Remington blower as a spare for my blowing needs since I use it to blow everything like tractors and equipment after use I have a craftsman blower which side by side look exactly the same just colors are different I bought also since it fits in the 40:1 fuel mix which matches all my other 2 cycle power equipment I would advise it for light to moderate use for the suburban home owner the carb was hard to purge of air when first putting fuel in eventually it cleared and ran great with high idle I will maybe adjust the idle or not otherwise runs well and blows very good for what I use it for

    + PROS: Runs well and blows very good. Fits in the 40:1 fuel mix of my other 2 cycle power equipment. Good for suburban light to moderate use.
    - CONS: Runs hotter than its Craftsman brother. Carb was hard to purge of air when first putting fuel in.
