Description

Overview of the Remington SLINGER™ RM2BP

  • Power: The Remington SLINGER™ RM2BP is a gas-powered leaf blower. It sports a max air speed of 150 MPH and a max air volume rating of 445 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • Handling: Like most backpack blowers, this model is technically heavier than a handheld. That being said, it can feel lighter and more comfortable because of the way it is carried, even when used over extended periods of time. Among other gas-powered backpack leaf blowers, the Remington SLINGER™ RM2BP can be considered light, weighing only 17 lbs.
  • Engine: The blower is fitted with a 27 cc engine. Please be aware that 2-cycle engines like this one require a mixture of gas and oil in order to run.
  • Speed Settings: Thanks to its variable speed settings, the Remington SLINGER™ RM2BP allows precise control of the air output.
  • Noise: As far as gas-powered backpack blowers go, this one is average in terms of noise with a rating of 73 dB.
  • Fuel Tank: The fuel tank can hold 20 fl. oz. What it loses in fuel capacity, the SLINGER™ RM2BP gains in portability by having a more manageable weight. In fact, it is the smallest tank of all gas-powered backpack leaf blowers.
  • 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 SLINGER™ RM2BP is covered under a warranty for up to 2 years. This warranty may not cover all parts of the blower.
