Overview of the Portland 62337

The Portland 62337 in use

The Portland 62337

  • Power: This electric leaf blower has a maximum air volume rating of 375 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed rating of 230 MPH.
  • Power delivery: This is a corded blower, so its 12 Amp motor needs to be plugged into a power source during use. Please note that some manufacturers don’t include the cord with the unit. If this is the case, or if you’re looking to buy a backup, please use our gauge calculator to ensure you’re buying the right cord for your blower.

    The Portland 62337 features a 12-amp motor, which works on 120V

    For this unit and this selected length, you should choose an extension cord with an AWG rating of

  • Cord Lock Mechanism: Anyone who has experienced the frustration of having their blower suddenly stop from being accidentally unplugged will be glad to know that the 62337 has a 'cord lock' mechanism.
  • Handling: With its handheld design, this leaf blower was created with portability in mind. Most users will have no problem using it almost anywhere. However, for a electric handheld blower, the Portland 62337 is heavier than most, weighing 10 lbs.
  • Speed Settings: Portland designed the 62337 with control and precision in mind. That’s why this model has 2 speed settings, meaning that its air output can be adjusted to suit the user’s needs.
  • Vacuum: For those who really want to make leaves disappear, the 62337 has a handy 'blower vac' feature (the keyword here being 'vac', aka 'vacuum'). It allows the operator to collect leaves and light debris in a collection bag to be easily discarded after the job is finished (bag included).
  • 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. The unit uses a plastic impeller.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 84 dB, the 62337 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric handheld category.

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Portland 62337 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • It can push air from the nozzle at 230 MPH, which puts it ahead of its class in terms of air speed for electric handheld blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Craftsman CMEBL7000 and its 260 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • Regarding its air volume, the airflow of the Portland 62337 can reach 375 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute), which is on par with other electric handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Worx Turbine WG521, with 800 CFM, could be in your good books.

Price comparison

    This is my second one bought at harbor freight,only used a few times a year as I have a small yard. I used it to mulch leaves and both times after only using two or three times the motor blows up. 90 warranty is a laugh can’t find who makes this either. Do not buy

    - CONS: Motor blows up after a few times
