Tanaka THB-2510N

This model is the lightest blower in our test but it has the power to blow up a hurricane. We reckon it’s also one of the quietest — though we have no test figures to prove it.
The THB-2510N is compact and extremely easy to manoeuvre. It’s designed for the home market as well as for commercial users — but don’t let that put you off.
This Tanaka features a two-stroke engine with a stress-relieved, chrome-plated cylinder for longer life. It also comes fitted with an effective “sound reduction system”, said to reduce sound levels by up to 44 per cent — good for the user and for working on noise-sensitive sites.
“It does seem quiet — as blowers go — and it certainly gets through the work quickly,” says our tester. The power-to-weight ratio means he is getting through the work quickly and without tiring. “It’s a very nice piece of kit,” he adds.
For an item that is shared by both consumers and professionals, the THB-2510N is of tough construction.
We especially like the twist-lock system that ensures the blower tube is securely held in place. This blower also has a generous fuel tank.
An easy-fit vacuum attachment, with its own shredder, is available.
