To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have a Black and Decker "plug-in" - 120 volt - leaf blower/vacuum which works well but it is very heavy and trailing the extension cord is a nuisance. I thought I would buy the 40 volt battery powered version to save weight and the inconvenience of the extension cord. My first use of the new machine was an attempt to vacuum leaf-litter from my driveway: even at the highest power setting it didn't have sufficient suction to vacuum up the dry dead leaves. Please note the battery was brand new and fully charged.
It worked ok for about 10 hours and then the connector would not stay connected. The concept is good and the suction was reasonable but not great. The blower was adequate for reaching areas that I cannot get to with extension cord. No way to fix it so it sits in the corner. Good idea but connector for attachments not robust enough. Off to recycle. 😟
Absolutely no suction at all, it barely sucks anything in, and when it finally does it all gets stuck inside. There is no way to open the device to unclog it. Returning mine, the black suction tube does not come apart easily, almost impossible to take apart to return the product so you're kind of stuck with it. Stay away it is underpowered and not returnable when you realize how bad it is....still not sure how ill get the leaves out of mine.
I have used this twice, the first time the power wouldn't go on. I got that fixed, this time i find the power is more appropriate for a barbie doll house - my hairdryer is more powerful and the plastic housing is already cracked...not impressed at all which is sad because I was thinking about going with more battery powered tools...
Terrible product. Talks about being able to use on leaves, then I received it and waited 6 weeks to use it as the leaves are now falling. It doesn’t help at all and I read the manual only to find it says that it shouldn’t be used for leaves, just loose debris on hard surfaces. Images and wording on the products page said it can be used for leaves. Now I have wasted money as the return window is closed. Don’t buy this product.
I purchased this item with intention to blow the driveway and grass clippings after the lawn maintenance. I am very disappointed with its sweeping performance it’s just not powerful enough and it DOES NOT blow at 120mph at full setting.
