Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the EB7660TH and the EB5300TH are both Makita blowers, they benefit from the same level of quality and attention to detail. Both products have their throttle located on the tube of the blower, which allows you to keep your left hand free.
  • 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 Makita EB7660TH, providing a CFM of 706, outmatches the 516 CFM of the Makita EB5300TH. Your leaf blowing experience will therefore be outstandingly improved with the Makita EB7660TH, as it should be able to move considerably more leaves per minute.
  • The Makita EB7660TH with an MPH of 205 slightly exceeds the 184 MPH of the Makita EB5300TH. 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 heavier Makita EB7660TH, standing at 24.1 lbs, dwarfs the 19.7 lbs of the Makita EB5300TH, and may cause you more trouble physically when operating.
  • The Makita EB7660TH's noise rating of 76 dB exceeds the 70 dB of the Makita EB5300TH. Therefore, the Makita EB5300TH will be easier on your (and your neighbor's) ears.

Engine specs comparison

  • The Makita EB7660TH has a slightly larger fuel tank, with the volume of 64.2 fl.oz., compared to the 60.9 fl.oz. of the Makita EB5300TH. Thus, it can store more fuel and you may theoretically operate it for slightly longer, if their engines had the same fuel requirements.
  • The Makita EB5300TH's engine displacement of 52.5 cc is dwarfed by the 75.6 cc of the Makita EB7660TH. While the latter uses way more fuel per stroke, it is in turn far more powerful.
  • Both leaf blowers are powered by a 4-cycle engine and therefore, they do not require an oil/fuel mix to operate from you.

Other features comparison

Vacuum ability

Neither the Makita EB7660TH nor the Makita EB5300TH has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
