Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the EB5300TH and the EB5300WH are both Makita blowers, they benefit from the same level of quality and attention to detail. The EB5300WH has a hip throttle, whereas the EB5300TH'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 516. 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 184. 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 Makita EB5300WH, which is 20.1 lbs, slightly exceeds the 19.7 lbs of the Makita EB5300TH, and will therefore require you to carry around slightly more weight.
  • Both devices have a noise rating of 70 dB. They should therefore be equally demanding on the ears.

Engine specs comparison

  • Both devices have an identical fuel tank size of 60.9 fl.oz. They will therefore require you to refill them at roughly same rates.
  • These two products have an identical engine displacement of 52.5 cc. Thus, they consume comparable amounts of fuel per stroke and will provide you with similar output.
  • 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 EB5300TH nor the Makita EB5300WH has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
