Overview of the Craftsman BP510

The Craftsman BP510 in use

The Craftsman BP510

  • Power: The Craftsman BP510 is a gas-powered leaf blower. It sports a max air speed of 220 MPH and a max air volume rating of 600 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • Handling: Like most backpack blowers, this model is technically heavier than a handheld. That being said, it can feel lighter and more comfortable because of the way it is carried, even when used over extended periods of time. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. Be aware that, at 26 lbs, the Craftsman BP510 is on the heavier side of gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Engine: This blower's engine has a displacement specification of 51 cc. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the BP510 cannot run on gasoline alone. The fuel must be mixed with an appropriate ratio of gasoline and oil in order for it to function properly (see your user’s manual for details).
  • Speed Settings: To provide more control over their job to the user, the unit has a variable speed control setting. No matter the size of the job, the user can adjust the airflow of the Craftsman BP510 to match it. On top of that, maintaining the selected speed is effortless, as it also features cruise control.

About Craftsman

Craftsman is a label which traces its roots to 1927, when it was first registered by the Sears department store. The brand has been only recently acquired by Stanley Black & Decker. Their products seem to be assembled in the US, from materials that are sourced abroad. Their selection features a wide range of lawn keeping equipment, including several leaf blowers. Little by little, Craftsman are diversifying their leaf blower offers. Craftsman blowers used to be exclusively handheld and electrically powered, but we now see backpack and gas-powered models. Both their price and specs range from the lower to middle tier.

Warranty Information

The Craftsman BP510 is covered under a warranty for up to 3 years. This warranty may not cover all parts of the blower.

    I bought this blower in the end of March of this year (22). Used it four times. Always with fresh 50-1 gas. Now it will not start. Lowes was of no assistance. Put in a warranty request with Craftsman. I have not heard from them. Looks like a loss of $259. I would stay away from Craftsman products

    + PROS: The short time that it ran, it started and ran perfectly.
    - CONS: Very poor quality

You can compare as many blowers as you wish. However, for the best results, we recommend you to compare only 2 blowers at a time.
