Description

Overview of the Hitachi Tanaka THB-260PF

  • Power: The Tanaka THB-260PF gas-powered leaf blower, manufactured by Hitachi, is rated for a max air volume of 393 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and a max air speed of 180 MPH.
  • Handling: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds. All told, it weighs 10.9 lbs — the Hitachi Tanaka THB-260PF is neither the lightest nor the heaviest gas-powered handheld leaf blower on the market.
  • Engine: This blower's engine has a displacement specification of 25 cc. Please note that, because the Hitachi Tanaka THB-260PF’s engine is a 2-cycle one, it runs on a mixture of oil and gasoline. Your user manual includes details on the proper ratio.
  • Speed Settings: In order to afford more control to the user, this unit has a variable speed control. No matter the size of the job, the user can adjust the airflow of the Hitachi Tanaka THB-260PF to match.
  • Vacuum: This unit isn’t just a blower—it has the added feature of being able to collect leaves and soft debris into its handy storage bag.
  • Mulching: With a mulching ratio of 14:1, this mulcher can reliably pulp 14 bags of waste (such as leaves and other debris) into 1 bag of mulch.
  • Noise: With a noise rating of 81 dB, this blower can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered handheld blowers.
  • Fuel Tank: It has an average fuel capacity, with a tank able to hold around 20.3 fl. oz of fuel.
