Hybrid 4 Engine Technology

Redmax's Hybrid 4® engine combines the advantages of 2-cycle and 4-cycle engines. This 4-stroke engine runs on a mix of gasoline and oil (1:50). For this to happen, the gasoline-oil mix enters the cylinder head through a bypass channel in order to offer full lubrication, which avoids the need for parts like an oil pump, sump or tank (which are compulsory for traditional 4-stroke engines). Therefore, there is no oil servicing to do (easy maintenance), the leaf blower emits less fumes, is more fuel efficient, and its overall noise is lower. Additionally, all Hybrid 4® engines are fitted with a system that considerably reduces the effort needed to pull the starter rope.

The bottom line

  • In the expected price range
  • Cruise control
  • Hybrid 4® Engine
  • 5 year (limited) warranty
  • Decent tank (68.7 fl. oz.)
  • Acceptable noise (77 dB)
  • Decent CFM (735 CFM)
  • Decent MPH (213 MPH)
  • Quite heavy (27.6 lbs)
