Overview of the Shindaiwa EB802RT

The Shindaiwa EB802RT in use

The Shindaiwa EB802RT

  • Power: The Shindaiwa EB802RT 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: 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 24.9 lbs, the Shindaiwa EB802RT is on the heavier side for gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Engine: The blower is fitted with a 79.2 cc engine. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the EB802RT 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: To provide more control over their job to the user, the unit has a variable speed control setting. No matter the size of the job, the user can adjust the airflow of the Shindaiwa EB802RT to match it. On top of that, maintaining the selected speed is effortless, as it also features cruise control.
  • 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: It has an average fuel capacity, with a tank able to hold around 68.3 fl. oz of fuel.
