Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the RedMax EBZ8500 and the Husqvarna 580BTS do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary. The EBZ8500 has a hip throttle, whereas the 580BTS's throttle is located on the tube of the blower and allows you to free your left hand. Whether the hip-mount or the tube-mount is better is a matter of personal preference.
  • These two products are constructed as backpack blowers, allowing you to comfortably carry their powerful engines and massive fuel tanks.
  • 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 908. 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.
  • The Husqvarna 580BTS with an MPH of 209 slightly exceeds the 206 MPH of the RedMax EBZ8500. Thus, in comparison, the former expels air at a slightly higher speed, and should do a better job at blowing leaves on grass or lifting wet leaves and debris (acorns, etc.).

Weight & Noise rating

  • The weight of the Husqvarna 580BTS, which is 25.8 lbs, slightly exceeds the 24.7 lbs of the RedMax EBZ8500, and will therefore require you to carry around slightly more weight.
  • The noise rating of the RedMax EBZ8500, which is 103 dB, slightly exceeds the 100 dB of the Husqvarna 580BTS. Even if this difference could seem unsignificant, the former is still slightly more noisy.

Engine specs comparison

  • The Husqvarna 580BTS's fuel tank has a volume of 87.9 fl.oz., exceeding the 77.7 fl.oz. of the RedMax EBZ8500. Therefore, you may store more fuel in the device and theoretically operate it longer, if their engines are equally demanding.
  • These two products have an identical engine displacement of 75.6 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 580BTS nor the RedMax EBZ8500 has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
