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.

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.

The four season blower...
I could not be happier with the 8500 and my employees as well. I run a tree service in northern NJ and it makes quick work of everything you throw at it. We currently have four and have sold off all the older 7500's because the 8500 does so much more work. The blower efectively picks up and throws 3/4 stone over a curb and throws to back into beds. Takes stump grindings and completely removes them from turf. The only down side is that you have to be carefull on newer sod lawns for it will peel the sod back if it hits a lap joint. By far the greatest attribute of this blower is that we now use it all four seasons. We have numerous commercial snow removal contracts and instead of shovels and snow blowers we use the 8500. It leaves an ultra clean surface if not walked upon, thus we put down less calcium, and is much easier to use with light powdery snow. As far a fuel, it burns it, but the work gets done. Fuel is cheap, labor and material are expensive. If they came out with 100-120CC model I would try it in an Instant. And for those that complain about weight go put an old echo aluminum housing blower on your back with 35 cc's of power on your back think about how ineffective the old days where. A cross cut saw may have been a third of the weight of a chainsaw but it did 5%of the work. Great Job Redmax!

Very impressed with the power of this Blower. Started on 2nd pull right out of the Box. If your looking for a blower with power and easy starting, look no further.....This is it!

We use this blower on all of our commercial properties and it is much better than the competition. Starts right up, good CFM, and an overall great product. The only problem I have with it is it sucks down gas, but when you're using for 14 hours, a day that's expected.
