Description

Overview of the Southland SWB163150E

The Southland SWB163150E in use

The Southland SWB163150E

  • Power: The SWB163150E gas-powered blower, manufactured by Southland, is rated for a max air volume of 1200 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and a max air speed of 150 MPH.
  • Handling: For bigger jobs covering a large area or for those who simply want to keep their leaf blower on the ground, walk-behind blowers such as the Southland SWB163150E are an ideal choice. They are typically much more powerful than handheld or backpack blowers. The unit features two 12" never-flat wheels at the back, as a well as a swiveling wheel that provides an enhanced freedom of movement on all types of terrain.
  • Engine: The engine boasts a displacement of 163cc. As this is a 4-stroke engine, the blower does not require a mix of gas and oil in order to run.
  • Speed Settings: Southland designed the SWB163150E with control and precision in mind. That’s why this model has 4 speed settings, meaning that its air output can be adjusted to suit the user’s needs.
  • Adjustable Air Flow: The unit features a 3-position adjustable wind vane that allows you to direct your airflow straight, 15 degrees up, or 15 degrees down. For additional convenience, a forward-flow attachment is included and allows the user to redirect the airflow from the side to the front of the push blower.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 76 dB, the SWB163150E is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the gas-powered walk-behind category.
  • Fuel Tank: The fuel tank has a capacity of 112 fl. oz. This is not especially impressive for a walk-behind blower, which means that you may have to refill it more often than similar units on the market.

    It can blow a lot of air but poor design for use off pavement. This is my second leaf cleanup season with it. From my experience it is poorly designed for use off pavement.

    On yard, soil, tree areas the 1″ wide solid rubber tires sink into the soil making it more difficult to push and pull. It does produce high CFM of air but only by an intake which is facing forward on the unit. So, it constantly sucks leaves to block air intake requiring constant removal. Perhaps intake at the rear or better yet a snorkel keeping it clear of the leaves blowing around?

    Regarding the tires, perhaps balloon/terra type tires to help keep it from sinking into the ground? Next, it is 3-wheel which, on uneven ground, causes it to want to tip over. The front, 3rd wheel pivots, another front pivot wheel as some mowers have, wouldn’t hamper maneuverability and make it more stable.

    Overall I would say, if your purpose is to clean solid surfaces of concrete, asphalt etc. it will do a good job. If for “off road” use on lawn or wooded area it’s a poor choice.

    + PROS: Can blow a lot of air
    - CONS: Mostly Cons, please read my review

    I bought this a few years ago, don;t remember the price. Right out the box, I couldn’t get it started. Eventually I figured out the directions to push the primer bulb 10x to start didn’t work. I have to pump it 20x and then when it starts I need to keep pumping the primer bulb till it warms up a little. Once I figured that out, it runs fine.

    + PROS: Moves a lot of leaves.
    - CONS: Hard to figure out how to get it to run. Directions where wrong.
