It’s designed for easy handling and use, and its size means it’s easily carried and stored.

  • Vacuum: As a blower vac, the UT26HBV handily vacuums unwanted material into a storage bag for easy disposal.
  • Mulching: Its mulching ratio is 12:1, meaning that it will turn 12 bags of soft debris into one bag of mulch.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 75 dB, the UT26HBV is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the gas-powered handheld category.
  • Fuel Tank: Its tank can hold 14.3 fl. oz., so it falls squarely in the average in terms of fuel capacity.
