Overview of the Southland SWB43170

The Southland SWB43170 in use

The Southland SWB43170

  • Power: The Southland SWB43170 is a gas-powered leaf blower. It sports a max air speed of 170 MPH and a max air volume rating of 520 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • 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 SWB43170 are an ideal choice. They are typically much more powerful than handheld or backpack blowers.
  • Engine: The blower is fitted with a 43 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 Southland SWB43170, this ratio is 50:1.
  • Speed Settings: For those who wish to have complete control while operating their leaf blower, the SWB43170 offers variable speed settings, and moreover, is also equipped with cruise control, which allows the user to comfortably continue blowing at their preferred setting.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 94 dB, the SWB43170 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the gas-powered walk-behind category.
  • Fuel Tank: The fuel tank has a capacity of 28 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. In fact, it is the smallest tank of all gas walk-behind blowers.
