Description

The TB51BP backpack leaf blower from Troy-Bilt® offers superior power with a 51cc 2-cycle full-crank engine. Its backpack design allows for reduced operator fatigue and fits the shape of your hips and reduces pressure points.

Overview of the Troy-Bilt TB51BP

The Troy-Bilt TB51BP in use

The Troy-Bilt TB51BP

  • Power: The Troy-Bilt TB51BP is a gas-powered blower with a maximum air volume rating of 600 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed of 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 51 cc. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the TB51BP 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 50:1).
  • Speed Settings: For those who wish to have complete control while operating their leaf blower, the TB51BP 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: 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.

The Troy-Bilt TB51BP's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Troy-Bilt TB51BP compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 220 MPH, which is pretty much what is to be expected for gas-powered backpack blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Husqvarna 150BT and its 270 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • It’s capable of expelling a maximum air volume of 600 CFM (cubic feet per minute). This places it at the low end compared to other gas-powered backpack blowers. For the highest air volume, you may want to have a look at the Shindaiwa EB910RT, which boasts with 1110 CFM.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas backpack blowers, the Troy-Bilt TB51BP is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget blower.

    I’ve used this unit 5 times, first 3 were great. Now it bogs down when you press the throttle. Very disappointing.

    + PROS: Light weight.
    - CONS: Not running correctly after just a few times using it.
