Description

Overview of the Homelite UT26HBV

  • Power: The UT26HBV, 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: 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. Among other gas-powered handheld blowers, the Homelite UT26HBV can be considered light, weighing only 9.5 lbs.
  • Engine: The engine boasts a displacement of 26 cc. Being that this is a 2-stroke engine, it must be fuelled using a mix of gas and oil. The proper fuel ratio set by the manufacturer for the UT26HBV is 50:1.
  • 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 Homelite UT26HBV to match.
  • Vacuum: The UT26HBV 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 12:1, this mulcher can reliably pulp 12 bags of waste (such as leaves and other debris) into 1 bag of mulch.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 75 dB can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered handheld blowers.
  • Fuel Tank: With a capacity of 14.3 fl. oz., this Homelite blower is average when compared to other gas-powered handheld leaf blowers.
