Shindaiwa announces EB262 handheld blower

Shindaiwa USA announced its latest 25.4cc handheld blower, the EB262. The EB262 is the ideal handheld blower for the commercial landscaper or arborist.

When it comes to handheld blowers, power and comfort are key. The EB262 has features to make it a leader in the handheld blower category. Cleanups after mowing, hedge or tree trimming are stress free. With 15.8 Newtons of force behind it, this commercial blower is made for professionals who need efficiency in their equipment.

Commercial features include chrome cylinder plating, a 2-ring piston and a blower tube wear ring for durability and longevity. Variable cruise control allows users to lock the throttle at differing speeds for specific tasks. The rubber grip on the main handle reduces fatigue while a secondary handle below the fuel tank increases comfort and maneuverability. The pleated paper main filter and foam prefilter with tool-less access provide excellent filtration in dusty conditions and make maintenance a breeze. The EB262 double grid intake pattern reduces blockage from leaves, and the large 20.3 oz. fuel tank provides extra runtime.

“We had professional landscapers and arborists in mind when we designed this unit, and we made sure to include all of the features that they would need to maximize performance, comfort and durability,” said John Powers, director of product management.

The EB262 includes both round-end and flared-end tubes. MSRP for the EB262 is $199.99. For more information, visit
