Hitachi RB24EAP Gas Powered Handheld Blower Review
- The blower comes with an efficient and green low-emission motor. It doesn’t matter if your yard is big or small the motor will meet any challenge.
- The engine relies on the PureFire low-emission two-stroke technology. In real terms this means fewer fumes will be produced during operation leading to both safer use and less environmental impact.
- If you are worried about the blower’s performance then don’t be. The engine provides both high Air Volume and Velocity. This will provide excellent debris movement especially in the autumn.
- The blower produces an air volume of about 441 cubic feet a minute and an air velocity of 170 miles per hour ensuring that clearing an outdoor area is done quickly and efficiently.
You may find that some of the newer blowers are fitted with a trigger lock so that you don’t always have to hold the trigger during operation. This can be a pain if you have a huge outdoor area and will be operating the blower constantly for an hour.
Some owners have complained that there is a common failure of the primer bulb, often related to the fuel lines having a fault. Although the blower is covered by a seven year manufacturer’s warranty.
“I think this is the best thing I have purchased this year. I have three blowers two electric and one gas powered this blows all the others away, haha. The electric ones I have are almost as good but I have to go over 2000 feet to blow the leaves and really a 2000 foot electric cable is ludicrous. I have returned the other gas blower in favor of this one. Used this for around 3 acres of land and I find it fairly comfortable to use all day long.“

“I don’t write review right out of the box. Been using this for about 2 months and it does what it suppose to do and more. Blows the leaf in my front and backyard wet or dry really good. The noise level can get noisy but that is to be expected. Starting it back up after sitting for 2 week was easy as well. The balance is good on this blower but your arm does get tired after more than 30 mins of blowing stuff around. Great blower…definitely recommend this.“

“WOW. I bought this after much reading of reviews. VERY pleased with its performance. Blows like a hurricane. Residential consumer warranty is GREAT too. It has been a easy starter from the beginning. Proved to be very reliable during this past summer. Hitachi products seem to have a good reputation, so I expect many more summers to go.“

The Hitachi RB24EAP is a great choice for any gardener. Basically it is not too expensive, comes with a 7 year consumer warranty, can be started easily either hot or cold, and really moves some air.
