Overview of the Shindaiwa EB910RT
- Power: The EB910RT, built by Shindaiwa, is a gas-powered leaf blower capable of expelling a maximum air volume of 1110 cubic feet per minute (CFM). Its air speed is rated at 220 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. However, for a gas-powered backpack blower, the Shindaiwa EB910RT is heavier than most, weighing 26.7 lbs.
- Engine: The blower is fitted with a 79.9cc engine. Please note that, because the Shindaiwa EB910RT's engine is a 2-cycle one, it runs on a mixture of oil and gasoline. According to Shindaiwa, the proper fuel mixture ratio for this blower is 50:1.
- Speed Settings: There are times when you only need a little more power, while other times you will want a bit more precision when clearing leaves and debris. For this purpose, the EB910RT offers variable speed settings, adding you, the user, more control, and a cruise control mode, which will allow you to maintain it comfortably for as long as you wish.
- Noise: As far as gas-powered backpack blowers go, this one is average in terms of noise with a rating of 80 dB.
- Fuel Tank: The fuel tank is well above average for a backpack blower – its capacity maxes out at 83.8 fl. oz.

- Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 220 MPH, which is pretty much what is to be expected for gas-powered backpack blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Husqvarna 150BT and its 270 MPH could be an option to consider.
- If air volume is an important feature, the EB910RT by Shindaiwa will not disappoint. Its airflow maxes out at 1110 CFM (cubic feet per minute), which makes this unit one of the most powerful gas-powered backpack blowers.
