Description

The TB272V gas leaf blower/vac from Troy-Bilt® offers the power and convenience you desire with a 27cc 2-cycle full-crank engine. It features high volume air flow velocity (450 CFM/ 150 MPH) for efficient clean up.

Overview of the Troy-Bilt TB272V

The Troy-Bilt TB272V in use

The Troy-Bilt TB272V

  • Power: The Troy-Bilt TB272V is a gas-powered blower with a maximum air volume rating of 450 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed of 150 MPH.
  • Handling: Being handheld, this blower has a good maneuverability and is meant to be easier to carry around over a small period of time. Be aware that, at 12 lbs, the Troy-Bilt TB272V is on the heavier side of gas-powered handheld blowers.
  • Engine: The blower is fitted with a 27 cc engine. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the TB272V 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 Troy-Bilt model, this ratio is 40:1).
  • 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 TB272V 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.
  • Vacuum: It features a vacuum allowing it to suck up leaf and debris once the sweeping job is complete (14 gallon bag included).
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 74 dB can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered handheld blowers.
  • Fuel Tank: It has an average fuel capacity for a handheld blower, with a tank that holds around 14 fl. oz of fuel.
  • SpringAssist™: The Troy-Bilt TB272V benefits from the proprietary SpringAssist™ starting system. This system allows the operator to start the leaf blower with a slow and steady pull on the starter rope, which greatly reduces the pulling effort needed.

The Troy-Bilt TB272V's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Troy-Bilt TB272V compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Maxing out at 150 MPH at full power, this blower is on the lower end in terms of air speed for gas-powered handheld blowers. For the fastest air speed in this category, you may want to consider the Craftsman BV2500, which can expell air at a velocity that can reach 250 MPH.
  • Regarding its air volume, the airflow of the Troy-Bilt TB272V can reach 450 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.
