Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the PR48BT and the PR46BT are both Poulan Pro blowers, they benefit from the same level of quality and attention to detail. Both products have their throttle located on the tube of the blower, which allows you to keep your left hand free.
  • These two products are constructed as backpack blowers, allowing you to comfortably carry their powerful engines and massive fuel tanks.
  • Both products are gas-powered blowers - gas is a reliable power source which you can refill in a matter of seconds.

CFM & MPH

  • The Poulan Pro PR46BT with a CFM of 490 slightly exceeds the 475 CFM of the Poulan Pro PR48BT. Thus, in comparison, you may find that the former is able to move more leaves per minute.
  • The Poulan Pro PR46BT with an MPH of 220 slightly exceeds the 200 MPH of the Poulan Pro PR48BT. Thus, in comparison, the former expels air at a slightly higher speed, and should do a better job at blowing leaves on grass or lifting wet leaves and debris (acorns, etc.).

Weight & Noise rating

  • The weight of the Poulan Pro PR48BT, which is 22 lbs, slightly exceeds the 19.8 lbs of the Poulan Pro PR46BT, and will therefore require you to carry around slightly more weight.
  • The noise rating of the Poulan Pro PR46BT, which is 100 dB, slightly exceeds the 96.7 dB of the Poulan Pro PR48BT. Even if this difference could seem unsignificant, the former is still slightly more noisy.

Engine specs comparison

  • The Poulan Pro PR46BT has a slightly larger fuel tank, with the volume of 51.2 fl.oz., compared to the 49.3 fl.oz. of the Poulan Pro PR48BT. Thus, it can store more fuel and you may theoretically operate it for slightly longer, if their engines had the same fuel requirements.
  • In comparison, the Poulan Pro PR46BT's engine displacement of 46 cc is slightly outperformed by the 48 cc of the Poulan Pro PR48BT. This suggests that the latter consumes slightly larger amounts of fuel per stroke and will provide you with slightly more power.
  • Each of these leaf blowers features a 2-cycle engine. Thus, they both require you to have an oil/fuel mix to operate.

Other features comparison

Vacuum ability

Neither the Poulan Pro PR48BT nor the Poulan Pro PR46BT has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
