Overview of the Poulan Pro PR48BT

  • Power: The Poulan Pro PR48BT is a gas-powered leaf blower. It sports a max air speed of 200 MPH and a max air volume rating of 475 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • 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.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. All told, it weighs 22 lbs — the Poulan Pro PR48BT is neither the lightest nor the heaviest gas-powered backpack leaf blower on the market.
  • Engine: The engine boasts a displacement of 48 cc. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the PR48BT cannot run on gasoline alone. The fuel must be mixed with an appropriate ratio of gasoline and oil in order for it to function properly (for this Poulan Pro model, this ratio 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 PR48BT features variable speed settings for added control.
  • Noise: With a noise rating of 96.7 dB, this blower can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • 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.
