Description

Make short work of clearing your driveway, deck or patio with the reliable 25cc gas blower from Weed Eater. Lightweight and easy to start, the FB25 features a reduced-vibration handle and variable speed throttle to give you effortless control and comfort. (source: Weed Eater)

Overview of the Weed Eater FB25

  • Power: The FB25, built by Weed Eater, is a gas-powered leaf blower capable of expelling a maximum air volume of 290 cubic feet per minute (CFM). Its air speed is rated at 170 MPH.
  • Handling: With its handheld design, this leaf blower was created with portability in mind. Most users will have no problem using it almost anywhere. When compared to other gas-powered handheld blowers, the Weed Eater FB25 stands out due to its lower weight: just 8.1 lbs.
  • Engine: The engine boasts a displacement of 25 cc. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the FB25 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 Weed Eater model, this ratio is 40:1).
  • Speed Settings: In order to afford more control to the user, this unit has a variable speed control. No matter the size of the job, the user can adjust the airflow of the Weed Eater FB25 to match.

The Weed Eater FB25's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Weed Eater FB25 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 170 MPH, which is pretty much what is to be expected for gas-powered handheld blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Poulan Pro PPBV25 and its 230 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • Its max air volume rating (290 cubic feet per minute) means it is really not the biggest air producer of gas-powered handheld blowers. For the highest air volume, you may want to have a look at the Craftsman B225, which boasts with 650 CFM.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas handheld blowers, the Weed Eater FB25 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.

However, green Weed Eater products can be found to this day in North America, including a strong line of mostly electric leaf blowers. Their products are unmistakable, as they feature a unique, green, alien-like design.

    Purchases less than a year ago, (2nd one that I owned)..Last month had a cord pull out, that was replaced by warranty. I picked it up at the warranty business, started it fine, but after one tank of gas it stopped, took it back to the shop and the fixed it under warranty. Brought it home and ran it for 5 minutes and fan quit, took it back again, and they replaced the nut on blower. Finally after one tank of gas, blower stopped working…I believe its the piston again..but I am giving up. After spending 30 minutes each way on the drives, (5) total..its heading to dumpster.

    + PROS: Good for less than a year
    - CONS: Had two pistons put in, both failed, junk

    Works better after gapping plug, better quality pull cord and rewinding pull spring better than OEM after reassembly works better than new!
    Don’t understand why not like this from new.

    + PROS: Cheap enough and no cords
    - CONS: Have to pull multiple time to start! After 1yr pull cord snapped. Replaced with high quality cable rewound pull cord and set spring for it. Pulls 10x's easier and recapped plug it starts much better and healthier. Should of done this since new so quality aint great!
