Customer Questions & Answers

How does this product fare against acorns / small pinecones?

Asked by: Captainkirk522
does not pick up acorns

Does this have a metal fan blade or plastic?

Asked by: Woo
I don't think it's metal. The specifications say metal; but, it looks like heavy duty plastic to me.

While vacuuming, does the 230 MPH 385 Electric leaf blower create a cloud of dust?

reading many reviews of other B/D models (more expensive) a common complaint is the dust cloud produced during vacuuming. Seems that at the connection point, the design allows dust to escape causing the many reviewers to write - "be sure to wear a dust mask when vacuuming"
Asked by: johnz
I have not noticed any dust cloud using it to pick up very dry leaves. The connection to the bag is as good was it could be. I have not noticed any leakage of dust around the connection to the collection bag.

will it pick up wet leaves in the gutters?

will it pick up wet leaves in the gutters?
Asked by: clw
I don't believe it was designed for wet pickup. I can envision the wet leaves clogging the blade and housing. Its easy enough to clean out, but a pain in the butt. Why not use a 2 1/2 wet/dry shop vac with an extended hose? Thats what I use and it works great. Take the filter out if you are sucking them up out of standing water.. Good luck.

The parts were well packed and there were only a few to put together. I had the same model, only 7 years older that finally died. The bag and other attatchments are all compatible with my new one. I am disappointed that this one seems a little flimsier and the impeller is plastic. On the old one it was metal and never jammed. I wish I saved the old one, I would have changed the impeller. I am buying the insurance for this one. I don't see that plastic one holding up.

The low speed setting works fine for dry and even wet leaves. The only problem I have had with it is that it fails to operate on occasion. I have figured out that there must be an interlock system that keeps the motor from engaging when the vacuum tube is not in place (actually a good thing). However, I have had the vacuum tube in place and the motor still doesn't start. The simple remedy is to release the vacuum tube and then click it back into place. Then it works. My only concern is that this interlock connection may get troublesome over time but we shall see.

Purchased this product as a replacement for my B&D BV2500 leaf vacuum/blower. Although it functions well for the most part, it doesn't pick up the Mesquite tree bean pods like the BV2500 did. It also took longer to vacuum up the leaves. (had to make several passes). I returned it, and purchased a Sun-Joe SBJ605E vac./blower 14 amp, multiple position speed power switch, 250 mph max., and 440 CFM with a metal impeller. This is the strongest corded vac./blower on the market, and twice the price, with 55CFM more suck. Haven't received it yet, so I cannot report on it. Hopefully it will perform at least as well as the old B&D BV2500, and pick up the bean (seed) pods.

I chose to use it with the with the hose accessory and not use the bag and I had some difficulty with that. Attaching the fabric lid to a garbage can definitely requires use of a bungee cord to keep things together, and everything definitely works better when the hose goes deep into the can, but when it all is working it is much easier to keep the leaves collected for disposal or for mulch. It is much lighter than the earlier version I had been using and the work is easier when you don't have to carry the bag and keep emptying it.

Detaching the bag when it is full of leaves is a major struggle. Doesn't chop the leaves very much. The vacuum tube wiggles lose and the machine turns off. Wiggle it again and it turns on. It jams up constantly and now the blades seem to have worn down. Have used it maybe 20 times and now it won't mulch anything at all. I was careful to avoid twigs. Just some leaves from a black olive tree. Disappointed... Black and Decker has (had) a good reputation. Probably all that cheap manufacturing they do outside the US.
