Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the RedMax EBZ8500 and the Husqvarna 580BFS Mark II share the same manufacturer (RedMax is a Husqvarna brand), they benefit from the same overall level of quality and attention to detail. Both products have a hip throttle, which can make it easier on your right hand if you operate them over an extended period of time.
  • 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 Husqvarna 580BFS Mark II with a CFM of 941 slightly exceeds the 908 CFM of the RedMax EBZ8500. Thus, in comparison, you may find that the former is able to move more leaves per minute.
  • These two products have an identical MPH of 206. 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

  • The weight of the Husqvarna 580BFS Mark II, which is 26.5 lbs, slightly exceeds the 24.7 lbs of the RedMax EBZ8500, and will therefore require you to carry around slightly more weight.
  • The Husqvarna 580BFS Mark II's noise rating of 112 dB exceeds the 103 dB of the RedMax EBZ8500. Therefore, the RedMax EBZ8500 will be easier on your (and your neighbor's) ears.

Engine specs comparison

  • The Husqvarna 580BFS Mark II'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.
