Comments about RedMax Leaf Blower:

I've had no complaints about this unit since I bought it over maybe 7 years ago. Easy start, nice feel, comfortable backpack straps. I see a selection above called "quiet". Really? Quiet compared to what? A rock concert three feet in front of the speakers? Wear the headphones, repeat, wear the headphones. Do not let your kids trail you around either without their own.

I see a selection for best uses. Mulching leaves? Is there some sort of attachment for this unit?

Recent disappointment. I was getting this blower ready for my wife to take to the horse barn to blow down cobwebs to prep for an open house (barn). Filled the tank, it started to leak (come think of it, I know that I had filled the tank months prior but it was bone dry just before this fill, now I know why...). It started to leak...a lot. Why? Yes, there's a hole somewhere... ;-) Detached the fuel tank. Really? The tank is held to the frame by nuts molded into three bubble like plastic humps that protrude into the tank. Two of the three nuts had cracks into the plastic tank starting from the nut on out away from the countersink for about 1/4". Looks like the source of the leak to me... Now why would you design a fuel tank, of all things, with an attachment method such as this? That is what external strapping is for, to keep from compromising the tank structure in any way. The tank, if it held anything else like water, I would just open the crack slightly and fill with silicone caulk. Fuel? Nope. Get a new one. Hopefull it will be a redesign with better thought put into it.

The only flaw in an otherwise very fine machine.

Great for blowing pretty much anything!

By 

from Statesboro, GA

Comments about RedMax Leaf Blower:

First of all I must say the backpack option is amazing because I am not very strong and one of the main reasons I never blow off our driveways because I hate holding a leaf blower that makes my arm tired after about five minutes. I do think this leaf blower is a little advance for people with a smaller home but I think for any type of lawn care company or some of the larger home and a big area to blow off it will be perfect.also I really wouldn't recommend using this first thing on a Saturday morning because this blower is pretty loud!

Weight
This machine is not the lightest one I have carried is not the heaviest. The backpack option does make a little weight less on your arm and more equalized throughout your body.

Performance
They are small this machine it's going to get your Job done efficiently and quickly. It can be used for hours at a time without shutting off or overheating on your arm or body.

Handling
I've had no problems so far the handling of this machine.

Ease of Use
Easy to blow off leaves snow grass clippings in a short amount of time. Would recommend this for someone looking for a quick way to get the job done right!

Durability
I had a bit of issues with the blower hose cracking a little bit near the bottom but I am that this machine has been very durable.

This Blower has a lot of power!

By 

from Hammonton, NJ

Comments about RedMax Leaf Blower:

I use RedMax blowers every day at work and I think these blowers do an amazing job.First of all, they start very easily, which is a good thing, because when you are ready to get the job done, you don't want to waste your time sitting there pulling and pulling, and all that happens is the motor gets flooded. And we have all been through that. The motor is strong. They have a lot of power and a long enough blower hose to get into some of the tightest areas that, as a landscaper, you need to get into. In addition to that, they are very light-weight, so if you are carrying them around on your back for a few hours at a time, the strain on your back is very slight at best. You can fill the gas tank and these things seem like they last forever. Sometimes you are wishing they would run out of gas. There are other blowers out there, but the RedMax line of blowers seem to work best for me and would highly reccomend them to anyone. Just do some regular maintenance on them and they will last you a long, long time.

Weight
If you are carrying this around for awhile, it will get heavy. But for short periods of time, it is good.

Performance
Very strong. You will have no problems getting leaves and other debris to move with this blower.

Handling
Great!! Has a handle on the nozzle so you can control where you want to blow things. Plus it is pretty long, so there is not a lot of bending with this blower, so your back will thank you.

Ease of Use
Once you start it, you are good to go. It even has a lever to set the throttle on full blast, so you don't even have to keep your finger on the trigger, so that allows you more freedom of movement and control.

Durability
Very strong. It has a cage around the motor, so if you do hit something, it is protected. And it is made with strong plastic so the body is strong as well.

huge!

By 

from Gold Canyon, AZ

Comments about RedMax Leaf Blower:

First off, this RedMax EBZ8000 blower is huge! I recommend only getting this if you have a big yard or a lot of leaf to blow. This RedMax EBZ8000 doesn't act as a vacuum however, so better make sure you have a place to blow the leaf to, or prepare yourself to dump all the leaf to a bag. This EBZ8000 takes gas and is very strong. Supposely it can go up to 201 MPH air speed, so pretty much anything loose on the ground will be blown away. This is a leaf blower that you carry on your back, you can't really carry it because the power it has. For me the gas can is enough to hold up for about two weeks usage, used once a week. Because of its power, this blower is really loud. I usually wear ear plugs when using it, and it's definitely recommended. I wouldn't recommend this unit for anyone looking for a blower however, because it's not suppose to be used for people with small house or small yard. I would definitely recommend it for people who have use for it.

powerful and does a nice job

By 

from Saint Louis, MO

Comments about RedMax Leaf Blower:

The redmax EBZ 8000 leaf blower definitely is a handy tool to have when the weather turns cool and the fall leaves start blowing around.  Being around a campus that uses the huge leaf blower that makes a ton of noises and disrupts different activities, I knew that for a personal leaf blower, I did not want a blower that would be so loud I would have to wear ear plugs to protect my hearing!  So after doing a little research, I found the RedMax line of leaf blowers that had received fairly positive reviews, and  Idecided to purchase one.  I was a little apprehensive on the price, but for someone who has lots of acerage and was trying to do damage control when it comes to the abundance and abundance of leaves, this blower definitely helped control leaves to the point where I could at least bag them in manageable piles.  I have been using the redmax leaf blower for several years now and breaking it out every fall season, it has been very reliable and I am extremely pleased!

True Power

By 

from Waltham, MA

Comments about RedMax Leaf Blower:

This leaf blower is sick. Its soo powerful that it can blow anything in its way. Nothing can stop this blower. The huge engine has enough horsepower to even move my car. For instance park the car and put it in netural. Stand behind the car and rev the engine on the leaf blower a few times. When you do that you will hear its true power. So when your done loving the soud, hold down the throttle so that it has super high revs creating hug air gusts. Aim the air exiting tube to the back of the car and watch the car move. Its truely amazing. It has hurricane type winds whwere it will rip flowers out of the ground or even rip apart the grass if youre not careful. You gotta be careful because if youre not it will cause more damage than what you started with. To blow leaves it will do it perfectly fine. It is perfect for something like that. But this blower has some extra emph for people who want to take it to the next level. Hope you enjoy.

this item is everything it claims to be

By 

from Bernalillo, NM

Comments about RedMax Leaf Blower:

I purchased this blower at the suggestion of a good friend. It has done everything my friend and the manufacturer said it would. It has a much stronger motor than I ever thought it would have and is much more quiet than I ever expected. It is great for getting not only leaves but dead twigs out from under the shrubs I have in my yard.

I can tell you this, it is almost a pleasuer to have to go out and perform these yard duties that used to be so dreadful. the only regret that I have at this time is that I didn't purchase this much sooner.

I rank this an A+ and highly recommend it.

The RedMax EBZ 8000 Leaf Blower blows the competition away!

By 

from Perth Amboy, NJ

Comments about RedMax Leaf Blower:

Leaves have always been a nuisance for my street. Even though I live in a fairly urban area, there are two giant trees that love to leave dead leaves all over the place. In the past, I have done thigns the hard way, raking up a large amount of my block, just to get rid of the bothersome dead leaves. Now, with the introduction of the RedMax Leaf Blower, all of this tedious cleaning can be simplified and made extremely manageable! This is almost a dream come true for me. I can rid myself of the leaves an a tenth of the time it used to take. Not only is it very effective in what it does, it also is very quiet! For a gas-powered engine, it makes very little noise. In fact, my neighbors had no idea what I had used to clear up the leaves until I told them! Don't let the quietness fool you however. This machine packs a real powerful punch, blowing away everything in sight! You can count on it to get the job done. Theo ne teeny tiny downside isthat it is a bit cumbersome to carry around, but one can deal with the extra weight, in order to get the extra effectiveness!
