Hi guys. I thought I’d do a quick look at a new backpack leaf blower. It is the Makita eb-5 300 th four-stroke Makita blower. I haven’t seen any video reviews or even videos on this particular model. There are someone it’s bigger brother. But this one we got a couple of weeks ago and loving it so far.
Previously we’ve been using the Husqvarna handheld blower which is superb. But it’s coming into the autumn season. Now leaves it’s time to fall. And we just wanted something that had that bin walk in front. And this certainly does.
So this is a 52 point 5 cc engine with a max air velocity of 82 meters per second and max air volume of 50 meters cubed. It comes in just eight point nine kilograms. And we got it for under 300 pounds. I think what you get is superb. Because if you want those sort of stats from a big brand like Stihl or Husqvarna you’d be talking minimum four hundred pounds. There they’re engineered everyone’s doesn’t compare to this one at all. And so we thought we would take a pun and I go for it. I mean if it was a power-tool eye angle grinder or something. I was wouldn’t hesitate with the brand Makita. But being a garden tool had my reservations but it’s proved to be well worth getting so far.
