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. All told, it weighs 11 lbs — the Poulan Pro PRB26 is neither the lightest nor the heaviest gas-powered handheld blower on the market.
- Engine: The engine boasts a displacement of 26 cc. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the PRB26 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: With its variable speed settings, the Poulan Pro PRB26 allows you to precisely control its air output. In addition, the blower is also equipped with cruise control, with which the user can easily maintain the selected settings.
- Noise: The manufacturer specifications state that the PRB26 can generate engine noise approaching 108 dB. This is louder than 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.
- Air exiting the nozzle of this blower can reach 200 MPH, which is quite a bit faster than most gas-powered handheld blowers. 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.
- It has a maximum air volume output of 470 CFM (cubic feet per minute). With this output rating, the PRB26 is well within average in relation to similar gas-powered handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Craftsman B225, with 650 CFM, could be in your good books.
As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas handheld blowers, the Poulan Pro PRB26 is on the cheap side of the price range.
It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget blower.

Questions & Answers

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).
