For your biggest debris and leaf moving projects, you need the Hero™ blower. The 25 CC 2-Cycle Gas Engine is both lightweight and powerful with air stream speeds up to 200 MPH and clearing power of up to 430 cubic feet per minute (CFM). QuickStart™ technology and a simple 3-step starting process makes pull starts even easier, and the extended nozzle with leaf scrapper and variable speed throttle with cruise control get you through any size project with ease.

Overview of the Remington HERO™ RM430

The Remington HERO™ RM430 in use

The Remington HERO™ RM430

  • Power: The HERO™ RM430, built by Remington, is a gas-powered leaf blower capable of expelling a maximum air volume of 430 cubic feet per minute (CFM). Its air speed is rated at 200 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. At 10 lbs, the Remington HERO™ RM430 is within the average weight range of gas-powered handheld blowers.
  • Engine: The blower is fitted with a 25 cc engine. Please note that, because the Remington HERO™ RM430's engine is a 2-cycle one, it runs on a mixture of oil and gasoline. According to Remington, the proper fuel mixture ratio for this blower is 40:1.
  • Speed Settings: There are times when you only need a little more power, while other times you will want a bit more precision when clearing leaves and debris. For this purpose, the HERO™ RM430 offers variable speed settings, adding you, the user, more control, and a cruise control mode, which will allow you to maintain it comfortably for as long as you wish.
  • Noise: As far as gas-powered handheld blowers go, this one is average in terms of noise with a rating of 72 dB.
  • Fuel Tank: With a capacity of 14 fl. oz., this Remington blower is average compared to other gas handheld blowers.
  • QuickStart™: This blower benefits from Remington's QuickStart™ technology. It facilitates starting by reducing the effort required to pull start the engine.

The Remington HERO™ RM430's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Remington HERO™ RM430 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Air exiting the nozzle of this blower can reach 200 MPH, which is quite a bit faster than most gas-powered handheld blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Craftsman BV2500 and its 250 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • The HERO™ RM430 is average in terms of air volume. It's rated at 430 CFM, which is common for gas-powered handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Craftsman B225, with 650 CFM, could be in your good books.

The bottom line

  • Cruise control
  • QuickStart™ technology
  • High MPH (200 MPH)
  • Decent weight (10 lbs)
  • Decent tank (14 fl. oz.)
  • Acceptable noise (72 dB)
  • Decent CFM (430 CFM)
  • The Remington HERO™ RM430 doesn't have any notably low specs.

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.
