Overview of the Hitachi Tanaka THB-260PF

  • Power: The Tanaka THB-260PF gas-powered 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: For those who are looking for a portable and convenient leaf blower, this model is a strong candidate. It’s designed for easy handling and use, and its size means it’s easily carried and stored. At 10.9 lbs, the Hitachi Tanaka THB-260PF is within the average weight range of gas-powered handheld blowers.
  • Engine: The engine boasts a displacement 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. According to Hitachi, the proper fuel mixture ratio for this blower is 50:1.
  • Speed Settings: Sometimes you just need a little more power, while other times you may want a little more precision when moving leaves and debris. That’s why the Tanaka THB-260PF features variable speed settings for added control.
  • Vacuum: The Tanaka THB-260PF is also what is known as a 'blower vac'. Those who don’t wish to blow leaves and debris away can switch to its vacuum setting and suck them into the blower’s collection bag.
  • Mulching: With a mulching ratio of 14:1, this mulcher can shrink 14 bags of leaves down to one bag of mulch, helping you get rid of unwanted leaves and debris.
  • Noise: As far as gas-powered handheld blowers go, this one is average in terms of noise with a rating of 81 dB.
  • Fuel Tank: With a capacity of 20.3 fl. oz., this Hitachi blower is average when compared to other gas-powered handheld leaf blowers.

The Hitachi Tanaka THB-260PF's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Hitachi Tanaka THB-260PF compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Forced air leaving this blower’s nozzle has been clocked at 180 MPH. That makes the Tanaka THB-260PF average in terms of air speed for gas-powered handheld blowers (the one expelling air at the fastest speed being the Poulan Pro PPBV25 with 230 MPH).
  • Its max air volume rating (393 cubic feet per minute) means it is really not the biggest air producer of gas-powered handheld leaf blowers (the biggest expelled air volume belonging to the Troy-Bilt TB2MB JET with 650 CFM).

Price comparison

As you can see from this dynamic chart, when compared to other blower vacs, the Hitachi Tanaka THB-260PF is on the expensive side of the price range.

While certainly not the cheapest of its kind, purchasing it would most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.
