Overview of 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.
