Description

Overview of the Homelite UT09526

The Homelite UT09526 in use

The Homelite UT09526

  • Power: The UT09526, built by Homelite, is a gas-powered leaf blower capable of expelling a maximum air volume of 400 cubic feet per minute (CFM). Its air speed is rated at 150 MPH.
  • Handling: Being handheld, this blower has a good maneuverability and is meant to be easier to carry around over a small period of time. At 9.6 lbs, the Homelite UT09526 is within the average weight range of gas-powered handheld blowers.
  • Engine: The blower is fitted with a 26 cc engine. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the UT09526 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 (for this Homelite model, this ratio 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 UT09526 features variable speed settings for added control.
  • Noise: As far as gas-powered handheld blowers go, this one is average in terms of noise with a rating of 75 dB.
  • Fuel Tank: Its tank can hold 14.3 fl. oz., so it falls squarely in the average in terms of fuel capacity for handheld blowers.

Postwar, the company expanded with the invention of the first modern chainsaw, of which they were and quite possibly still are the largest manufacturers.

    First off: No finger trigger for throttle control! Awkward unless your left-handed…! After only using it 4 times, the starter pull cord would not retract back into the housing. HOMELITE WOULD NOT HONOR WARRANTY! Part “B” of their warranty documentation does not list “springs: or “pull cord spring” as excluded under warranty. It is obviously a defect in manufacturer workmanship and they won’t stand behind it!! Given a quote of $90.00 to repair! HOW LUDICROUS!!!
    I only paid $86.00 for it brand new! They prominently and largely display their 2 Year Warranty, but don’t believe it!! Mine failed within 60 days!!! Only used it 4 times!!!!!!! ITS CHEAP JUNK and they know it!!
    Paid $86.00 plus $20.00 for “warranty evaluation” and had to drive 40 miles to an authorized service center… It cost me $120.00 to just throw it in the garbage!!!!
    Spend a few more dollars and buy an Echo or a Ryobi or just get a rake! Anything but a Homelite product!!!! I won’t ever buy another Homelite product and I recommend you don’t either.

    + PROS: Will keep garbage service in business
    - CONS: You've been "con"ed if you buy a Homelite product

    It looks good.
    Not too heavy.
    When and if you can get it started – It’s not a bad little blower
    However, after using it only twice – The third time I wanted to use it – For the life of me .. I couldn’t get it to start.
    I was, and still am, soooo frustrated and disappointed!
    I plan on buying an electric blower – I rather drag around a cord, than deal with the frustration of a blower not starting when you need it to.

    Ive had mine for a decade, problem free. I suspect mine is better because its older and maybe had a different manufacturing specs. Cant say a bad thing about it.

    + PROS: Light, reliable, price.
    - CONS: Could be more powerful and have throttle, but then price would be higher.
