Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Blumuze Not a serious piece of equipment
As a blower it works fine, but beware of trying to use it as a vacuum. The vacuum attachment which snaps onto the housing has a fatal design flaw in that the fan blades come in contact with it and will get sheared off the minute you turn it on -- as happened with me. I can assure that everything was attached properly, and that no debris had been allowed to pass through before this happened.

Kind of loud, but easy to use. It really moves the detritus.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by judy extremely cumbersome weight of the product makes it difficult to maneuver for leaf vacuming. I also purchased the compatible leaf collection system.
The blower was purchased along with the compatible leaf collection system both by Black and Decker.
once assembled and attached as instructed to my trash can it was very cumbersome and heavy. Difficult to maneuver, the can kept tipping over due to the weight of the tubing and the attached bag closed off when the feed tube wasn't on perfectly straight. The entire assembly is too heavy to use for more than 15 minutes. I have a big yard, big trees, lots of leaves. This is not the answer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jake Excellent for chopping and bagging the leaves and debris.
The blower/vacuum has performed well. I have found the leaf/twig mulching function to be well suited to my needs. It does indeed reduce the volume of the leaves and debris to 10%. It does a good job of cleaning up the leaves. I use the chopped material for composting, and this is perfect. I use the chopped material for mulch too. Even if you are just bagging leaves, the thing should pay for itself in a couple of years, in trash bags alone.
My only unanswered question is, how durable will the internals prove to be processing the dusty, dirty, leaves? If it lasts two years I will call it a success. I will hope for more, and that will be a bonus.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by johninchlt Good Blower for the Money
I bought this blower to blow leaves off the lawn, off the pine needles, off the mulch and out of my flower beds. I haven't used it to mulch leaves so I can't speak on that. In general, I was happy with how it worked, although I used it on high speed most of the time. It didn't work as well as expected on my lawn. I wished I bought the more expensive one with a slightly higher speed. One important thing to note. It says you can use a 16 gauge extension cord, but that's ONLY at 50 feet away. BUT you need a 14 gauge extension cord for 100 feet away according to B & D specs.
