Take Control of Fall with the New Troy-Bilt Leaf Blower

A gas-powered leaf blower is a great tool to have on hand throughout the fall season, providing many uses and benefits in the backyard. Typically used for leaf removal, a blower can also clear other unwanted debris - like small twigs and light dirt - from your driveway, patio and deck.

Though there are a few factors to consider prior to purchasing a leaf blower, like how much debris you need to remove and the overall ease of use, the new Troy-Bilt® TB2MB Jet' gas leaf blower offers many benefits to help you tackle yard cleanup projects easily and efficiently.

Jet consists of a mixed-flow fan design that allows the blower to achieve a perfect balance of speed and volume, moving leaves and debris in the most controlled and effective way. The mixed-flow fan also provides aesthetic appeal with its transparent housing that gives you an in-action view of the fan.

In addition to its power and sleek design, this Troy-Bilt gas leaf blower funnels out common nuisances like engine heat, sound and vibration with its user-focused design - keeping the engine cooler, quieter and smoother for a more comfortable cleanup experience. Jet also has an optimal weight balance, so the blower is stable and easy to control.

You can start Jet by using its Prime, Flip & Go starting process - just press and release the primer bulb 10 times, flip the choke lever clockwise until it clicks and pull the starting cord - or you can use the JumpStart' Engine Starter to eliminate the need for pull-starting.

When it's time to finally get in the yard and use your leaf blower, keep these fall yard cleanup tips in mind to ensure an easy removal process:

  • Blow all leaves toward the center of your yard to create one big pile, or start at the edge of your lawn and blow leaves in the same direction
  • Moisture makes leaves heavier and more difficult to clear, so be sure leaves are dry and wind is at a bare minimum before you begin to remove debris
  • If you're clearing a large amount of leaves from your yard, blow leaves onto a tarp so you can easily drag and dump where needed
  • After you've removed leaves from your yard, add them to your compost pile as a source of insulation to help maintain the decomposition process
