  • Handling: Like most backpack blowers, this model is technically heavier than a handheld. That being said, it can feel lighter and more comfortable because of the way it is carried, even when used over extended periods of time. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. When compared to other gas-powered backpack blowers, the Poulan Pro PR46BT stands out due to its lower weight: just 19.8 lbs.
  • Engine: The blower is fitted with a 46 cc engine. 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 PR46BT 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 Poulan Pro PR46BT to match.
  • Noise: As far as gas-powered backpack blowers go, this one is average in terms of noise with a rating of 100 dB.
  • Fuel Tank: With a capacity of 51.2 fl. oz., this Poulan Pro blower is average when compared to other gas backpack blowers.

    Do not even bother spending your money on the machine.

    + PROS: Worked great for 2 weeks keeping the leaves blow into piles in the yard. Only for 2 weeks
    - CONS: Broke within 10 hrs of use. Good luck getting anything done with the "warranty". They don't even list anyone to provide service on the service locator on their website. Just don't buy it or just give your money to some kid with a rake. This thing is worthless

    If you are looking for a blower that starts easily, runs consistently at all throttle settings, restarts easily after a brief shutdown and will idle at the lowest throttle setting, DO NOT buy this machine. It is without question the most difficult to start small engine I have ever owned. It has plenty of power if you can get it started and keep it running, but if you release the accelerator trigger the engine will shut down and you may have to wait until the next day to get it started again. Most disappointing purchase I’ve ever made.

    + PROS: Great power when its running
    - CONS: Almost impossible to start it and keep it running

    + PROS: Good price!
    - CONS: NOT RELIABLE/JUNKER AT BEST!
