Overview of the Shindaiwa EB802

The Shindaiwa EB802 in use

The Shindaiwa EB802

  • 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: 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 hip-mounted, which can make it easier on your right hand if you operate it over an extended period of time. However, for a gas-powered backpack blower, the Shindaiwa EB802 is heavier than most, weighing 25.1 lbs.
  • Engine: The engine boasts a displacement of 79.2 cc. As you may or may not know, 2-stroke engines require a mixture of gasoline and oil in order to keep all the moving parts lubricated while fuelling the engine’s internal combustion. The fuel/oil ratio recommended by Shindaiwa for the EB802 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.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 76 dB can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Fuel Tank: It has an average fuel capacity for a backpack blower, with a tank able to hold around 68.3 fl. oz of fuel.
