- Power: The EB802 gas-powered blower, manufactured by Shindaiwa, is rated for a max air volume of 695 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and a max air speed of 210 MPH.
- Handling: As this unit is a backpack leaf blower, the majority of the unit is distributed so that the user can operate it with ease for most reasonable periods of use. 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 for gas-powered backpack blowers.
- Engine: The engine boasts a displacement of 79.2 cc. 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: Sometimes you just need a little more power, while other times you may want a little more precision when moving leaves and debris. That’s why the EB802 features variable speed settings for added control.
