I purchased the EBZ8500RH this past fall to help with leaf removals and to speed things up during the grass cutting season. This blower has amazing power and gets the job done quick! I couldn't ask for a better blower for leaf removals along with blowing grass clippings.

About this backpack blower when my 5yr old Stihl backpack blower started having troubles.
I will buy another one of these in a heartbeat.

Remarkable reliability, and Power
My company purchased this blower about 60 days ago. We have used it 5-6 days per week without a break. The air intake is a BIG advantage. My employees fight over which one will use this machine. CONS; After 30 days of use the straps have split open down the side. I have purchased 2 new straps and they have split as well. The BIGGEST con is the blower hose. It is not wekk designed or durable. I will have to replace it soon. I understand companies need to make money in the aftermarket parts, but replacing parts <90 days after purchase is frustrating to say the least.

Power, Balance and Effortless Starting
I struggled for years with Home Center models before I took the plunge and purchased this unit. I couldn't be more amazed at the Power, Convenience, Balance and ease of operation. Quality pays, it doesn't cost.

I have used this blower several times so far to blow snow instead of shoveling. I added a section to the blower tube to get it closer to the ground and am very satisfied with the machines performance.

RedMax EBZ8500RH Review
I have had the blower for several months now and really like it. I have gone through a competitors backpack blower and a hand held blower and none compare to the RedMax. It is buit tough and I have a large piece of property where I can be blowing leaves and yard waster for a couple of hours straight. The blower is up to the challenge. It is easy to start and use. I look forward to having it for many years. If you are in the market for a good reliable backpack blower this is the one.
