Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • Belonging to the line of RedMax blowers, both the EBZ8500 and the EBZ8550 should have a shared standard of manufacturing and attention to detail. The inclusion of a hip throttle on both products offers ergonomic benefits, providing relief to your right hand during prolonged operation.
  • Designed as backpack blowers, both products boast substantial engines and sizable fuel tanks, making them easy to carry for extended periods.
  • Both products, gas blowers, offer a swift refill system, saving you time on refueling and allowing you to efficiently manage large outdoor spaces.

CFM & MPH

  • With a marginal CFM advantage (941 vs 908 CFM), the RedMax EBZ8550 may offer a modest edge over the RedMax EBZ8500 (908 CFM) in terms of leaf-moving capability.
  • With matching MPH ratings of 206, both blowers excel at tasks like clearing leaves on grass or lifting heavier debris like wet leaves and acorns.

Weight & Noise rating

  • The RedMax EBZ8550, weighing 25.1 lbs, edges slightly above the 24.7 lbs of the RedMax EBZ8500, implying that while it's marginally heavier, you may notice a tad more comfort and ease in handling the latter.

  • The engine displacement of 75.6cc in both products indicates similar fuel consumption per stroke, potentially leading to equivalent performance capabilities.
  • Both of these leaf blowers are equipped with 2-cycle engines, meaning they require an oil/fuel mix for operation.
