Overview of the Shindaiwa EB802

The Shindaiwa EB802 in use

The Shindaiwa EB802

  • Power: The Shindaiwa EB802 is a gas-powered blower with a maximum air volume rating of 695 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed of 210 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 hip-mounted, which can make it easier on your right hand if you operate it over an extended period of time. Be aware that, at 25.1 lbs, the Shindaiwa EB802 is on the heavier side of gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Engine: The engine boasts a displacement of 79.2cc. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the EB802 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: Thanks to its variable speed settings, the Shindaiwa EB802 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 76 dB.
  • Fuel Tank: Its tank can hold 68.3 fl. oz., so it falls squarely in the average in terms of fuel capacity for backpack blowers.

The Shindaiwa EB802's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Shindaiwa EB802 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Forced air leaving this blower’s nozzle has been clocked at 210 MPH. That makes the EB802 average in terms of air speed for 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.
  • The EB802 is average in terms of air volume. It's rated at 695 CFM, which is common for gas-powered backpack blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Echo PB-9010T, with 1110 CFM, could be in your good books.

Here's a list of the most popular specific comparisons:

    Bought used hose controlled unit used but nearly new off Ebay seems like 10 years ago for about $300. for residential clean up of leaves, pine needles and cones, even road gravel next to our dirt road from town plowing over the winter. A very good blower. Would consider new model EB910 or Identical Echo 9010T for MORE POWER!!

    + PROS: Always starts on third pull, has always run great with no fails.Parts are interchangeable with similar spec ECHO blowers.
    - CONS: After 8-10 years the flex hose from the housing split. Should buy a new one, but some flexible tape works fine. Not really a CON.

You can compare as many blowers as you wish. However, for the best results, we recommend you to compare only 2 blowers at a time.
