Does what it's suppossed to, but...
I have a number of B+D 20V products, and this was my last addition to my outdoor cordless equipment. This came with the unit and the smaller 2.0 Ah battery, but I already had several larger batteries, so it was a bonus (to me). Many of the reviews complain about battery life, but I think if you compare this to a corded and/or gas powered model, you are doing yourself a dis-service. It does not have the power of those types of equipment, nor should you reasonably think it would. However, it has served me just fine, as I'm not looking for it to do all my work for me. The first job I used it for was cleaning out my gutters of who-knows-what was in there. When I bought the house, the gutters hadn't been done for years, and were packed to the gills. After it had been dry for several days, I climbed up on the roof, and had a go at it. I normally used the lower setting, and occasionally the higher one if something was stubborn. It worked just fine! Yes, the power is severly limited and shortened by using the high setting (as was expected). Then I let the unit rest for a few minutes, and it worked fine on the low setting after going dead on the higher one. The small battery was basically good for only doing the second story gutters, so I finished up the rest of them using the 4.0 Ah battery I had. I next used it to blow some leaves out from around my wooden fence that had trees/bushes and such in the way that makes it hard doing it with a rake. I used it in the same fashion, using it on low most of the time, with high being utilized in short bursts when needed. No battery problems this time around, and it still had life left in it when I was finished. I then waited another few days to do the rest of my project, which entailed blowing some more leaves at the front and sides of the house that were normally a pain to rake. After the rest it took, the battery was still up to the job of doing what I asked of it! I was not unhappy with the unit, and it didn't seem large or un-weilding for someone of my average size and strength. If you want to do everything in one long stretch, and have no patience for the limits of the technology, these battery powered products are not for you. If you have an idea how to pace yourself to get the work done, you'll do just fine...

The blower blows fine but the battery only lasts 6 minutes. That is unacceptable.

I love this! It’s lightweight, quieter than most, and has plenty of power for me to do the deck, stairs, walks, etc.

Works OK but very limited use time on a fully charged battery, 10-15 minutes. Takes many hours to recharge. Buy a second battery or a unit with a longer run time.

Powerful enough to do a decent job. You need to switch batteries every once in a while however.

Very low in power and battery time. I’m only getting half hour in while on speed 2. Not worth the money unless you have multiple battery packs already to get the job done.

I already had a B&D battery & charger for my grass trimmer so decided to stay with B&D for a leaf blower. It is a nice unit but the battery is undersized and I only get about 8 mins of operation from one charge. The biggest drawback is that I wanted to buy a nozzle attachment for it. However I bought the blower in Canada and B&D has no support in this country. I phoned B&D in the US but they don't sell parts for eqpt with canadian model #'s.
