Overview of the Poulan Pro PR48BT

  • Power: The PR48BT, built by Poulan Pro, is a gas-powered leaf blower capable of expelling a maximum air volume of 475 cubic feet per minute (CFM). Its air speed is rated at 200 MPH.
  • Handling: By design, this model isn’t the smallest leaf blower on the market. It’s meant to be carried as a backpack so that the bulk of the unit is out of the way and the user’s hands are free to manipulate the nozzle. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. At 22 lbs, the Poulan Pro PR48BT is within the average weight range of gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Engine: The blower is fitted with a 48 cc engine. Please be aware that 2-cycle engines like this one require a mixture of gas and oil in order to run. For the Poulan Pro PR48BT, this ratio 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 PR48BT to match.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 96.7 dB, the PR48BT is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the gas-powered backpack category.
  • Fuel Tank: With a capacity of 49.3 fl. oz., this Poulan Pro blower is average when compared to other gas-powered backpack leaf blowers.
