Or use this powerful, electric-start capable 4-cycle leaf blower in the spring and summer for all-purpose clean-up of yard debris, dust and dirt on decks, sidewalks, etc.  The TB4HB EC features a 25cc, 4-cycle engine with up to 150mph airflow velocity. JumpStart™ sold seperately.

Overview of the Troy-Bilt TB4HB EC

The Troy-Bilt TB4HB EC in use

The Troy-Bilt TB4HB EC

  • Power: The TB4HB EC gas-powered blower, manufactured by Troy-Bilt, is rated for a max air volume of 450 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and a max air speed of 150 MPH.
  • Handling: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds. At 11 lbs, the Troy-Bilt TB4HB EC is within the average weight range of gas-powered handheld blowers.
  • Engine: This blower's engine has a displacement specification of 25 cc. 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.
  • 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 TB4HB EC 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.
  • Fuel Tank: With a capacity of 14 fl. oz., this Troy-Bilt blower is average compared to other gas handheld blowers.
  • 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.

The Troy-Bilt TB4HB EC's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Troy-Bilt TB4HB EC compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 150 MPH, which is on the lower end 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.
  • It has a maximum air volume output of 450 CFM (cubic feet per minute). With this output rating, the TB4HB EC is well within average in relation to similar gas-powered handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Troy-Bilt TB2MB JET, with 650 CFM, could be in your good books.

STRENGTHS:
  • Cruise control
  • Electric start capable
  • SpringAssist™ technology
AVERAGE SPECS:
  • Decent weight (11 lbs)
  • Decent tank (14 fl. oz.)

    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.

    + PROS: Starts & runs good
    - CONS: Impeller doesn't hold up
