Shindaiwa EB240

This is another small hand-held blower with surprising power. And at 67dB(A), it is also the quietest blower from the Shindaiwa stable.
In line with most Shindaiwa-branded products, this blower is solidly built. The on/off switch seems a little old-fashioned but is easy enough to use and we reckon it will withstand commercial use.
The low noise levels and low emissions — now a familiar theme from Shindaiwa — make for a reasonable working environment.
However, as a tester points out; “It might not be a problem for anyone of average height or shorter, but a longer tube would make it easier for taller people to direct the blast.”
What is appreciated, however, is the balance of this machine. It almost seems to swing by itself and, even though it weighs over four kilograms, the effect is felt in reduced effort and wrist strain. The throttle control is also well positioned and responsive.
