The Shindaiwa EB802 backpack blower is the latest high quality product from Shindaiwa. The EB802 boasts numerous innovative features and exceptional performance reinforcing Shindaiwa as a true industry leader in the professional blower market.

Power: at 79.2cc displacement, the 4.3 hp (3.2kW) engine produces an impressive output with an airspeed of 224 MPH and volume of 762 CFM at tube tip – increased power translates to getting the job done quicker. No doubt, the Shindaiwa EB802 is one of the most powerful 2-cycle blowers on the market today.

Durability: built tough, the EB802 features a two-ring piston design and closed-ported 4-bolt chrome-plated cylinder for maximum durability.

Reliability: an efficient two-stage air filter system features easy access two-thumbscrew cover and heavy duty sealing. The foam pre-filter and pleated air filter design provides more effective surface area. The vertical mount filter is designed to be self-cleaning to reduce dust build-up on pleats.
According to Pete Fernald, Shindaiwa Director of Technical Services, “A very unique and special feature of the EB802 is its new and innovative intake leaf guard design. It’s very effective in minimizing risk of overheating from leaf blockage because of its downward slopping fins. The debris just harmlessly falls away when off peak throttle.”

Usability: the ultimate in comfort for the professional user, the EB802 features a newly designed and ergonomic light-weight frame with a comfortable shoulder harness system that reduces pressure points felt by the operator. Dual, fully padded shoulder strap adjustments allow the user to easily fine tune fit for nonbinding comfort and reduced fatigue which translates to increased productivity.

Flexibility: in addition, the EB802 features a convenient “hush mode” switch which reduces the sound level to 65 dB(A) meeting many city-enforced noise ordinances so there is no need for a separate “quiet” blower.

A world leader in producing commercial-grade outdoor power equipment and environmentally-friendly small engine technologies, Shindaiwa products are distributed exclusively through clean two-step distribution and independent servicing dealers. For more information, please contact Shindaiwa, Inc. Tualatin, Oregon (800) 521-7733. Or visit www.shindaiwa.com.

Our distributor for the MD area , Pitt, is worth less to say the least. After 10 yrs of shindaiwa equipment we have gone to Stihl.

Our distributor for the MD area , Pitt, is worth less to say the least. After 10 yrs of shindaiwa equipment we have gone to Stihl.

What was your problem? We have been with Pitt for as long as they've handled Shindaiwa. They have been very good to us and for us. We are very excited about the new EB802 and the up-coming EB8520.
