Description

Equipped with a powerful 46 cc two-cycle engine, the Poulan Pro PR46BT gas-powered backpack blower is capable of incredible high-velocity air speeds up to 220 mph and airflow up to 490 cfm to easily handle tough blowing tasks like clearing wet, heavy leaves, grass, and other stubborn debris. This lightweight blower is packed with all sorts of high-performance features, like cruise control with variable speed control; heavy-duty frame; soft-grip handle; large, contoured, adjustable shoulder straps; and padded, load-reducing harness for optimal fit, superior comfort, minimal strain, and reduced fatigue for users of any size. Powerful, comfortable, versatile, and easy-to-use, it's ideal for year-round clean-up, and is a perfect choice for homeowners and small business owners with 1/2-acre yards and larger.

Overview of the Poulan Pro PR46BT

  • Power: The Poulan Pro PR46BT is a gas-powered blower with a maximum air volume rating of 490 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed of 220 MPH.
  • 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: This blower's engine has a displacement specification of 46 cc. Please note that, because the Poulan Pro PR46BT’s engine is a 2-cycle one, it runs on a mixture of oil and gasoline. According to Poulan Pro, the proper fuel mixture ratio for this blower 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 PR46BT features variable speed settings for added control.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 100 dB can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Fuel Tank: Its tank can hold 51.2 fl. oz., so it falls squarely in the average in terms of fuel capacity.

    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

    This was the worst blower I have ever in life purchased. It will let you down contantly and small engine techs laugh at it.😣

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

    The other reviews pretty much sum up this product! It has no redeeming qualities and is at best a child’s toy for them to pretend that they are blowing leaves.

    + PROS: There are absolutely no pros to this POS. Kudos to Scott for getting 2 weeks out of his.
    - CONS: Let's see: It starts and then dies consistently. Hands are blistered and bleeding from trying to get the blower to start. Shoulder is injured from trying to start.

    + PROS: Powerful when new. Did the job.
    - CONS: Second year, hard to start and stay running.
