Overview of the Troy-Bilt TB4HB EC
- Power: The Troy-Bilt TB4HB EC is a gas-powered leaf blower. It sports a max air speed of 150 MPH and a max air volume rating of 450 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
- Handling: Being handheld, this blower has a good maneuverability and is meant to be easier to carry around over a small period of time. At 11 lbs, the Troy-Bilt TB4HB EC is within the average weight range of gas-powered handheld blowers.
- Engine: The blower is fitted with a 25 cc engine. While this engine has a traditional recoil starter, it is also electric start capable (JumpStart Drill Bit not included). As this is a 4-stroke engine, the blower does not require a mix of gas and oil in order to run.

- SpringAssist™: The Troy-Bilt TB4HB EC 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.

I have a TB4HB EC blower and it is nice and light weight, starts easily even with ready pull. This blower has not been used very much until last year when I started camping in a wooded campgrounds. It seems last November I was blowing leaves and now and then I would hear a squalling sound then shortly afterwards while the engine was running just fine there was no air blowing. I found the impeller was loose. I was able to tighten it up and tried using it again. Not long and there was that sound again and no air. This time I noticed the impeller was not only loose but, also wobbled and was no longer centered. OK, so, I replaced the impeller I bought from Jack’s Small Engines in Md. and all was well. Ok, so I hadn’t used the blower much this past Spring and Summer. Here it is November, 2020. Just about 1 year later my wife said what’s that noise and same thing. The impeller looks like the hole in it is actually melted and the washer on it IS melted right into the impeller. So, I have another impeller ordered. Sounds to me like the impeller just can’t stand the heat of the crank shaft which it is mounted to. I am just starting to search for an answer. Hopefully there is an impeller made of a better material.
