Overview of the Remington SLINGER™ RM2BP
- Power: The SLINGER™ RM2BP gas-powered blower, manufactured by Remington, is rated for a max air volume of 445 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and a max air speed of 150 MPH.
- 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. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. When compared to other gas-powered backpack blowers, the Remington SLINGER™ RM2BP stands out due to its lower weight: just 17 lbs.
- Engine: The blower is fitted with a 27 cc engine. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the SLINGER™ RM2BP cannot run on gasoline alone. The fuel must be mixed with an appropriate ratio of gasoline and oil in order for it to function properly (for this Remington model, this ratio is 40:1).
- Speed Settings: For those who are keen on having complete control while operating their leaf blower, the SLINGER™ RM2BP offers variable speed settings.
- Noise: Its noise rating of 73 dB can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered backpack blowers.
- Fuel Tank: Its 20 fl. oz. fuel tank may be relatively low in capacity, but the decreased weight affords the SLINGER™ RM2BP greater comfort and ease of use. In fact, it is the smallest tank of all gas backpack blowers.
- QuickStart™: This blower benefits from Remington's QuickStart™ technology. It facilitates starting by reducing the effort required to pull start the engine.

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.
The Remington SLINGER™ RM2BP is covered under a warranty for up to 2 years. This warranty may not cover all parts of the blower.
