The Tanaka THB 260PF is ideal for intensive commercial use or homeowners due to its superior blowing performance (393CFM), robust build-quality and advanced ergonomics. Its powerful and fuel efficient 24cc (1.3hp) Pure Fire engine is equipped with a Walbro diaphragm carburettor, an electronic ignition and a fuel primer for reliable starting; and it combines a heavy duty forged steel connecting-rod with a chrome plated, stress relieved cylinder to ensure a very lengthy service life. Operator comfort is obviously a key consideration when you're taking on large scale applications with a hand held tool. The Tanaka THB 260PF ticks all the boxes in this regard, with its low-weight design, auxiliary handle (which allows for two-handed use), cruise control and a soft elastomer grip all working to make it a pleasure to use.
With the addition of the optional THV260VS kit this blower can be easily converted to a blower/vac.
These machines requires 2 stroke fuel. The traditional way of making this fuel is to buy unleaded petrol and mix high quality 2 stroke oil at a ratio of 50:1.
However, standard pump petrol now contains Ethanol which causes the petrol to deteriorate rapidly causing starting and running problems.
A much better solution is to buy our Aspen 2 fuel, which is pre mixed with the oil and has a shelf life of up to 5 years. This fuel is better for the machine, better for the environment and better for your health.
