One thing I dread every fall is the amount of leaves I have to contend with. The Troy-Bilt blower has a vacuum option that not only vacuums up leaves but mulches them as well.

The only assembly is selecting and adding the attachments for whichever option you intend to use the machine for. Opening the cage to install the suction tube was a little tricky at first. But once I found the safety release, it went easily for other installations.

The vacuum for this machine is great. Much better than a shop vacuum. The bag fills up fairly quickly when there are a lot of leaves and you have the throttle high.

All-in-all, this machine is easy to use, has great power, and is well made.

Easy to start, runs good and I use the leaf bag to store the vacuum accessories.

To be critical I’m not a fan of needing to use screwdrivers to change over from blower to vacuum, I would think it should be easy enough to include a tool-free conversion.

The package comes with a bag of 40:1 engine lube which I just dump in my little 1-gallon gas can and then fill with gas for the 2-cycle mixture. Easy.

The blower does a good job however I did expect more from a gas-powered tool, although I’m not comparing this to other gas-powered blowers since I don’t own any).

The vacuum works very well though and it’s easy to do, although the tube attachment is a bit cumbersome and the catch bag shoulder strap always seems to slide off while I’m working.

Overall, I’m happy with the motor being easy to start and the weight of the unit. It’s light enough to carry around for a while without fatigue and there’s even a small strap hole that you can attach your own strap to which will help with any fatigue.

Lastly, if you have the “Jump Start” accessory, you don’t even need to pull the starter cable to get it running.

I’m really happy that Home Depot has started selling Troy-Bilt garden tools and power equipment. I have always found Troy-Bilt to be a good, reliable, and affordable option for the typical homeowner like me. So, when I say that the Troy-Bilt 50 MPH 450 CFM 2-Cycle 27cc Gas Handheld Leaf Blower with Vacuum/Mulch Kit and JumpStart Capabilities was available, I grabbed it immediately. So far it has been great. I typically use my leaf blower to clean off my lawn tractor after use, fall clean up, and for general cleaning around the house the driveway, sidewalks, garage, and the back shed. I have not used the available JumpStart capability, but I haven’t had to either. It starts right up after the second or third pull, which is pretty typical of leaf blowers. So, if you are in the market for an affordable and good leaf blower, the 50 MPH 450 CFM 2-Cycle 27cc Gas Handheld Leaf Blower with Vacuum/Mulch Kit and JumpStart Capabilities is just right for you
