Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the RedMax HB281 and the Husqvarna 125B do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary.
  • These two products are handheld blowers and therefore provide you with superior mobility.
  • Both products are gas-powered blowers - gas is a reliable power source which you can refill in a matter of seconds.

CFM & MPH

  • The two blowers have an identical CFM of 425. By providing you with the same volumes of air, both units should allow, on a hard surface, to move the same amount of dry leaves per minute.
  • These two products have an identical MPH of 170. By providing you with the same air speeds, they should both be as efficient when blowing leaves on grass or lifting wet leaves and debris (acorns, etc.).

Weight & Noise rating

  • Both devices weigh 9.4 lbs. Thus, they will be similarly tough for you to operate.
  • The RedMax HB281's noise rating of 109 dB exceeds the 94 dB of the Husqvarna 125B. Therefore, the Husqvarna 125B will be easier on your (and your neighbor's) ears.

Engine specs comparison

  • The RedMax HB281 has a slightly larger fuel tank, with the volume of 18.5 fl.oz., compared to the 16.91 fl.oz. of the Husqvarna 125B. Thus, it can store more fuel and you may theoretically operate it for slightly longer, if their engines had the same fuel requirements.
  • These two products have an identical engine displacement of 28 cc. Thus, they consume comparable amounts of fuel per stroke and will provide you with similar output.
  • Each of these leaf blowers features a 2-cycle engine. Thus, they both require you to have an oil/fuel mix to operate.

Other features comparison

Vacuum ability

Neither the Husqvarna 125B nor the RedMax HB281 has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
