Description

Overview of the Shindaiwa EB790RT

  • Power: The Shindaiwa EB790RT is a gas-powered leaf blower. It sports a max air speed of 240 MPH and a max air volume rating of 835 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • Handling: By design, this model isn’t the smallest leaf blower on the market. It’s meant to be carried as a backpack so that the bulk of the unit is out of the way and the user’s hands are free to manipulate the nozzle. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. Be aware that, at 26 lbs, the Shindaiwa EB790RT is on the heavier side of gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Engine: This blower's engine has a displacement specification of 79.9cc. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the EB790RT 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 Shindaiwa model, this ratio is 50:1).
  • Speed Settings: With its variable speed settings, the Shindaiwa EB790RT 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: As far as gas-powered backpack blowers go, this one is average in terms of noise with a rating of 76 dB.
  • Fuel Tank: With a capacity of 67 fl. oz., this Shindaiwa blower is average compared to other gas backpack blowers.

The Shindaiwa EB790RT's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Shindaiwa EB790RT compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Air exiting the nozzle of this blower can reach 240 MPH, which is quite a bit faster than most gas-powered backpack blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Husqvarna 150BT and its 270 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • Regarding its air volume, the Shindaiwa EB790RT boasts an impressive airflow that can reach 835 CFM (Cubic Foot per Minute). This places it amongst the most powerful gas-powered backpack blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Echo PB-9010T, with 1110 CFM, could be in your good books.
