- Power: The Shindaiwa EB854RT is a gas-powered blower with a maximum air volume rating of 735 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed of 213 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 located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. Be aware that, at 27.6 lbs, the Shindaiwa EB854RT is on the heavier side for gas-powered backpack blowers.
- Engine: This blower's Hybrid 4 engine has a displacement specification of 79.7 cc. Redmax's Hybdrid 4® engine is a 4-stroke engine that runs with a mixture of oil and gas (50:1 ratio). You can find more details about this technology below.
- Speed Settings: For those who wish to have complete control while operating their leaf blower, the EB854RT offers variable speed settings, and moreover, is also equipped with cruise control, which allows the user to comfortably continue blowing at their preferred setting.
- Noise: With a decibel rating of 77 dB, the EB854RT is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the gas-powered backpack category.
- Fuel Tank: Its tank can hold 68.7 fl. oz., so it falls squarely in the average in terms of fuel capacity.

- It has a maximum air volume output of 735 CFM (cubic feet per minute). With this output rating, the EB854RT is well within average in relation to similar gas-powered backpack blowers (the biggest expelled air volume belonging to the Echo PB-9010T with 1110 CFM).
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas backpack blowers, the Shindaiwa EB854RT is on the expensive side of the price range.
While certainly not the cheapest of its kind, purchasing it could most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.
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.
