Overview of the Troy-Bilt TB51BP
- Power: The TB51BP, built by Troy-Bilt, is a gas-powered leaf blower capable of expelling a maximum air volume of 600 cubic feet per minute (CFM). Its air speed is rated at 220 MPH.
- Handling: By design, this model isn’t the smallest leaf blower on the market. It’s meant to be carried as a backpack so that the bulk of the unit is out of the way and the user’s hands are free to manipulate the nozzle. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. Among other gas-powered backpack blowers, the Troy-Bilt TB51BP can be considered light, weighing only 20.5 lbs.
- Engine: This blower's engine has a displacement specification of 51cc. Being that this is a 2-stroke engine, it must be fuelled using a mix of gas and oil. The proper fuel ratio set by the manufacturer for the TB51BP is 50:1.
- Speed Settings: To provide more control over their job to the user, the unit has a variable speed control setting. No matter the size of the job, the user can adjust the airflow of the Troy-Bilt TB51BP to match it. On top of that, maintaining the selected speed is effortless, as it also features cruise control.
- Noise: Its noise rating of 75 dB can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered backpack blowers.
- Fuel Tank: With a capacity of 46 fl. oz., this Troy-Bilt blower is average compared to other gas backpack blowers.
- SpringAssist™: The Troy-Bilt TB51BP 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.
