Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 6, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Warp speed! Bought this item for my husband for Christmas along with some tools. He has been wanting a leaf blower for a while and I wanted specific features on a leaf blower: 1.) Speed and power, 2.) wanted it to be electric, and 3.) preferred a feature that allowed for a vacuum. This model satisfied all requirements [230 mph speed!] and had a very decent price. I received a 10% discount with a coupon for even added value. I would have given it 5 stars if the vacuum attachment were a bit easier to attach and detach. My husband has used it several times and loves it. (And the yard looks great!) January 14, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love this! I use the vacuum to clean up the leaves in my rock bed and it works great! Love this product, it works great picking up leaves and small bush clippings out of my rock bed. May 20, 2014

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great blower/vac for low volume usage Blows very well, especially without the small, tapered tip. The vacuum works well too, except it doesn't suck the mulberries off the ground like I'd like it to. Conversion from blower to vac is pretty easy. Just watch out for all the dust that gets sucked up because it will blow out the porous bag and get all over your clothes. Price was perfect. Can't complain so far! June 11, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very Good For My Small Yard Bought this to replace a previous vacuum-mulcher that died after a number of years of use. Have not used it (nor do I suspect I will) in the blower mode. Was very easy to assemble and have used it 3x so far. Chose to get this smaller model because it was closer in size to the one it replaced. Noticed it's a bit quieter than its predecessor ... though I always use ear plugs! Navy Rule: "If you have to shout to be heard over the noise, then your hearing is at risk and ear protection is REQUIRED!" The longer nozzle makes sucking up leaves easier without as much 'back bending'. I like the 2 speed option since using the lower speed minimizes sucking up stones which could damage the plastic impeller. In fact, I've found I don't need to use the higher (and louder) speed option for the work I do which involves sucking up leaves in a rock garden as well as the lawn. Only complaint so far is that detaching the full bag is a bit difficult because of the plastic 'lock button ' you have to depress + the tight fit between parts . Have tried both silicone spray & WD-40 to "pre-coat" attachment points with only limited success. Sometimes I just disconnect the power cord and take both machine & bag to the area of my yard where I dump the mulched leaves. For the under $60 price ... the surprise 2-day deliver via UPS (when I was expecting 7-10 business days) ... and the good results I've gotten to date, I consider this product a good buy.
