5 Comments on Troy-Bilt JET Gas Leaf Blower (TB2MB): Product Review

  1. Tom

    Definitely DO NOT but the Troy Built Jet blower if you are going to use it for leaves in a yard. The product is gimmicking and useless. It looks fancy and moves a lot of air but is neither functionally better or more efficient than any other blower. It moves a lot of air but not in a directed spot which is the whole point of a leaf blower. If you want to move air in your yard just save money and put an oscillating fan in your grass!!

    Pile of junk .. broke after 1 season the flimsy plastic clips fractured and made it useless. . Now I have just a motor and no blower

    I’ve had the Troy-Built Jet (TB2MB) for 7 months (bought mid-Sept 2017)…the pull-start broke after 3 months routine use (mid-Dec 2017). Well, the pull-start just broke again (April 2/2018). The pull-start rope jams inside the unit on the re-coil. I’m getting ready to re-order parts again…this time I’ll get multiple parts expecting this to happen again in June (using “PartsTree” for replacement part).

    It does the job I need it to do (I’m happy with product otherwise). but…I thought this would be a more reliable product, name recognition, etc. This product fails reliability and quality expectations. I’m stuck without a blower for more than a week again…need it now for spring cleaning.

    Sorry guys, but next time I’ll pass on other Troy-Built products and purchase other brands.

      Hi Jim,
      I’m sorry you had problems with your Troy-Bilt Jet Blower (TB2MB). We tested the unit multiple times and had no problems with the pull start. It sounds like you received a defective blower. Troy-Bilt offers a 2 year warranty on defective workmanship and materials. I don’t know at this point (from your perspective) whether it makes sense to try to get new one through Troy-Bilt. After purchasing all those new parts you may want to just keep it and hope for the best … your call. I wish you had better luck, like we did.
      Regards,
      Jack
