Description

Equipped with a 26cc two-cycle engine, the Poulan Pro PRB26 gas-powered blower is capable of 200 mph air speed and 470 cfm airflow, it's ideal for year-round clean-up of grass, leaves, and other stubborn debris.

Overview of the Poulan Pro PRB26

  • Power: The Poulan Pro PRB26 is a gas-powered leaf blower. It sports a max air speed of 200 MPH and a max air volume rating of 470 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • Handling: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds. At 11 lbs, the Poulan Pro PRB26 is within the average weight range of gas-powered handheld blowers.
  • Engine: The blower is fitted with a 26 cc engine. As you may or may not know, 2-stroke engines require a mixture of gasoline and oil in order to keep all the moving parts lubricated while fuelling the engine’s internal combustion. The fuel/oil ratio recommended by Poulan Pro for the PRB26 is 50:1.
  • Speed Settings: There are times when you only need a little more power, while other times you will want a bit more precision when clearing leaves and debris. For this purpose, the PRB26 offers variable speed settings, adding you, the user, more control, and a cruise control mode, which will allow you to maintain it comfortably for as long as you wish.
  • Noise: The noise emitted by the Poulan Pro PRB26 can reach up to 108 dB. Its noise rating is on the higher end compared to other gas-powered handheld leaf blowers.

The Poulan Pro PRB26's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Poulan Pro PRB26 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 200 MPH, which is rather impressive for a gas-powered handheld blower. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Craftsman BV2500 and its 250 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • Regarding its air volume, the airflow of the Poulan Pro PRB26 can reach 470 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute), which is on par with other gas-powered handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Craftsman B225, with 650 CFM, could be in your good books.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas handheld blowers, the Poulan Pro PRB26 is on the average side of the price range.

    I do own this blower and have been very satisfied with it. I also own a battery powered blower and this is much more powerful. I am an average size man and the weight is fine. Starts easy, easy to use and powerful. I would recommend it; especially for the money you can’t go wrong. I also recommend using the premixed fuel that you can buy at any big box store. It is expensive but really cuts down on the exhaust and makes it very easy to start. Also it is much better for the engine (carb from getting gummed up).

    + PROS: Great for the Money Plenty of power
    - CONS: Exhaust is a bit loud May be a bit heavy for a smaller person

You can compare as many blowers as you wish. However, for the best results, we recommend you to compare only 2 blowers at a time.
