    The Remington MULCHINATOR™ RM1300 features a 12-amp motor, which works on 120V

    For this unit and this selected length, you should choose an extension cord with an AWG rating of

  • Cord Lock Mechanism: Corded power tools can sometimes inadvertently be unplugged during operation. The Remington MULCHINATOR™ RM1300 prevents such accidents by featuring a cord lock mechanism.
  • Handling: With its handheld design, this leaf blower was created with portability in mind. Most users will have no problem using it almost anywhere. Be aware that, at 10 lbs, the Remington MULCHINATOR™ RM1300 is on the heavier side for electric handheld blowers.
  • Speed Settings: Thanks to its 2 speed settings, the Remington MULCHINATOR™ RM1300 allows the user to adjust the air output to the task in hand.
  • Vacuum: The MULCHINATOR™ RM1300 is also what is known as a 'blower vac'. Those who don’t wish to blow leaves and debris away can switch to its vacuum setting and suck them into a collection bag (7 gallon bag included).
  • Mulching: With a mulching ratio of 10:1, this mulcher can shrink 10 bags of leaves down to one bag of mulch, helping you get rid of unwanted leaves and debris. The unit uses a plastic impeller.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 68 dB, the MULCHINATOR™ RM1300 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric handheld category.

The Remington MULCHINATOR™ RM1300's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Remington MULCHINATOR™ RM1300 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 150 MPH, which is pretty much what is to be expected for electric handheld blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Toro 51621 and its 260 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • Regarding its air volume, the airflow of the Remington MULCHINATOR™ RM1300 can reach 350 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute), which is on par with other electric handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Worx Turbine WG521, with 800 CFM, could be in your good books.

AVERAGE SPECS:
  • Acceptable noise (68 dB)

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 MULCHINATOR™ RM1300 is covered under a warranty for up to 2 years. This warranty may not cover all parts of the blower.
