Homelite Leaf Blower

published

Purchased in 2013 for $80 Bunnings never had a problem with it until 2022 all it was is spark plug.
Still going great i know its a cheap one but for me it does the job, make sure the fuel is mixed properly.
25.1 ratio which is 200ml 2 stroke oil to 4 liters of 95 fuel. unless you have a 5 liters can its 250ml.

Cheap but not very powerfull

published

I bought this assuming the 325kmh speed of air was accurate. My old ryobi cordless one was rated at 225kmh so thought this one would certainly be more powerful. It certainly wasn't.

Works great

published

Being female it is a bit heavy after a while but that doesn't stop me from using it. I found it easy to start and easy to use. Never has it cut out on me. The only issue is I had a bit of a hard time trying to put the vac part together and on but in the end, I didn't bother using it. As a blower, it's perfect for me.

4 years and still going strong!

published

I dont normally write reviews, but when I was researching this blower " 4 years ago", I saw nothing but bad reviews. But I took the gamble and bought it anyway, and have been using it since July 2016. My block is 527 square metres with buffalo grass, so I need to mow and edge quite regularly. I blow down with my Homlite 26cc blower every time. I've followed the instructions from day one, and I'v never had a drama. I'l admit the throttle control could be more user friendly, but in all, it's a great machine! Bought from Bunnings Wallsend.

Very good and very light

published

So far very good. I see others have had problems but. I've had a few Homelite products with no problems. This is probably the lightest unit I have ever come across...which was the MAIN reason I choose this. I have carpel tunnel. Its quite balanced. Yes some Two strokes can be a bit of black magic art to use. But once you know how this specific unit starts. You'll be right!!

Failed after 3 yrs of light usage

published

Difficult to adjust blowing force when in use. Stopped working after 3 yrs. Opened up the cover and found metal filings inside the engine. You get what you pay for I guess.

this blower sucks !

published

this is the second model hbl26b I have tried to use , the first one ran for maybe five mins before it [Word Removed] itself . Took that one back to bunnings for an exchange ...( no questions asked ) , I wonder how many returns they have had on these products , the chainsaw is the same .. I know it's a cheap and nasty brand , but I would expect the thing would run for more than one go .

Great

published

Great for the price. Great for patios, Car garages, pathways, and for blowing light yard rubbish such as leaves etc. Always run it out of fuel after use so it won;t gum up in the Carby.
