Customer Questions & Answers

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.

How does this product fare against acorns / small pinecones?

Asked by: Captainkirk522
The blades are soft plastic. After 20 uses with just dry leaves, small dry leaves, the blades are useless. Acorns and pinecones??? I don't think so.

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
Probably. The suction is actually pretty good. Whether it will mulch them or not is another story. It tends to clog up every few minutes especially if they're wet but even dry leaves.

Blower works very well but the vac part of it is complete garbage. The tube part works loose and it shuts off the whole thing, if you wiggle it it will start back up for a few seconds and then stop again. Seems to have been designed to be land fill filler. SAVE YOUR MONEY DO NOT BUY!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ABSOLUTELY THE BEST!!! Tried em all and keep going back to corded blower. This blower is very powerful and gets the job done! Don't waste your money on the more expensive blowers because they can't come close to how powerful this is. Can be used as a vacuum to pick up leaves but I've only used it as a blower to blow the leaves into a pile. My last blower was this exact same one and it lasted for 14 years and I ran the heck out of it each time I used it. I never write reviews but I just had to for this. Hands down, the best there is! Buy it and you'll agree, if not you can always return it. But you won't be returning it because you'll see that it's everything a blower should be. Just bought one for my mom and she loves it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Satisfied This is only the second one I have owned. The first one I believe was built better. The new one has the same power but the transition from blower to vac is a little more involved. The removable base intake cover is made of brittle plastic and you have to be careful of dropping it. Also the older model had the air intake from the sides so setting it down while running wasn't a problem. The new one has the intake on the bottom so you cannot set it down or debris will block the screen. I hope this model lasts as long as the first one which I gave to my son.

Since my yard is covered with 1/2 " rock, I mostly bought it to blow leaves into an area where I was filling 4 to 5 bags of leaves by hand last year but this year I decided to try the vacuum. I had forgotten about the mulcher and quickly realized that it was chewing up the leaves too. I didn't even fill one bag completely but it had weight instead of bulk and it went into my trash can for pickup. I was wearing ear plugs because of the loud decibels and went through 2 dust masks since the leaf bag creates a dust cloud around me. I'm strongly allergic to dust and when finished, my clothes quickly went into washer and I went into the shower. Wish they had an extension for leaf bag to be farther away from user. May have to rig something up.

My neighbor has an older version of this and he loves it; so I ordered one. After less than 10 min of use, it failed. Would not turn on. Checked multiple outlets; dead. I thought it was a fluke so I ordered a new one. This one powered on after assemble for about 10 seconds. I turned it off and it would not restart! B&D was my father's favorite but they have really lost the formula.
