Description

Overview of the Shindaiwa EB252

The Shindaiwa EB252 in use

The Shindaiwa EB252

  • Power: The EB252, built by Shindaiwa, is a gas-powered leaf blower capable of expelling a maximum air volume of 453 cubic feet per minute (CFM). Its air speed is rated at 170 MPH.
  • Handling: Being handheld, this blower has a good maneuverability and is meant to be easier to carry around over a small period of time. Among other gas-powered handheld blowers, the Shindaiwa EB252 can be considered light, weighing only 8.6 lbs.
  • Engine: The blower is fitted with a 25.4cc engine. Please be aware that 2-cycle engines like this one require a mixture of gas and oil in order to run. For the Shindaiwa EB252, this ratio is 50:1.
  • Speed Settings: With its variable speed settings, the Shindaiwa EB252 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 70 dB can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered handheld blowers.
  • Fuel Tank: Its tank can hold 18.6 fl. oz., so it falls squarely in the average in terms of fuel capacity for handheld blowers.
