Powered by a 25 cc engine with variable speed control. Air speed 200 mph at a volume of 430 cfm. 10:1 reduction ratio. Professional blower nozzle for better performance. Vacuum attachment included.When you’re comparing gas blower/vacs, you’ll want to make note of three things: air speed, air flow and the unit’s weight. All three affect how much of a chore your yard cleanup will be.

On the first count, air speed, this Poulan rates very well, registering 205 mph; you’ll find a lot of comparable blowers listed closer to 150 mph. Coupled with that is how much air the engine is actually moving, and of course, the more, the better. This one’s rated at an impressive 400 cubic feet per minute, which, for a handheld blower like this, is a mighty lot of volume. Combined, these two details mean you’ve got great air power for blowing leaves, grass clippings, light debris and other yard waste.

This blower is no heavier than its competitors, but of course, once you flip the switch and start vacuuming leaves, you’re carrying that weight with you, albeit with a shoulder strap. It does have a higher mulching ratio than others (16:1, turning 16 bags of leaves into one mulched bag) in its class, turning leaves and grass clippings into a nice, fine mulch for flower beds or just more compact bagged yard waste.

Starting is a bit of a chore; be prepared to pull. But that’s par for the gas-powered course. Once it’s going, though, it’s a pleasure to use, and it beats raking and sweeping.–Kris Jensen-Van Heste

Worked GREAT until it DIED May 4, 2009: My apologies to anyone who purchased this blower based on my original review below. I would now give it a 2-star rating rather than 5-stars. Unfortunately, when editing a review, it’s not possible to change the number of stars originally posted.The two stars would be for the 2 years it worked perfectly…started easy every time and always ran great. This blower definitely wasn’t worked to death. It was only used maybe once a week during fall for blowing leaves off the…

Worked okay for 2 seasons This thing worked pretty well for a while. It vac’d with moderate power and chopped leaves and twigs to a relatively fine mulch (I’d argue with the 16:1 claim, though). The blower was plenty powerful and I liked the fact that you could set the throttle and forget it. Not too heavy (except of course when you had a bag full of mulch weighing you down) and well balanced and easy to control. It clogged fairly regularly, but clearing the clogs wasn’t too difficult.The problem was that…

Great blower to have around the yard Great machine for the money. Runs great, blows hard. one setback is that it is a little heavy, and that there is no trigger button. (You throttle it up and it just goes)Works great, runs great and is very durable. The vacuum bag is a little hard to setup, but once its on it works well.
