Excellent Sweeper/Vacuum
I have owned this sweeper/blower/Vacuum for over two years. It has worked flawlessly. It is very strong as both a blower and as a vacuum. It is very easy to use and to carry around.

This is one of several 40v products that I own. My only problem with any of these 40v products is that two battery units have failed (I have had at least 6 products with 40v batteries, and I bought two extra batteries, when on sale.

It would be nice if B&D added a telescoping 40v tree-limb pruning saw.

I purchased this leaf blower 4 years ago. I was concerned that it ran off of battery rather than typical Gas. I was amazed by the power and how long it lasted. I use it about twice a week to clean my patio, Deck, driveway, and sidewalk. I also use it to clean my Barbecue Grill! No kidding, when I wipe down the inside of my grill, I use this to blow out the small portions of ash I can’t reach. I also use it like a dryer after I wash my car or after I empty out my pool, it helps dry it up quick. The battery life is perfect (I don’t charge it for days) & the power is more than enough for any job. At one point I used it for about 1 1/2 hours straight before needing a charge. STOP THINKING ABOUT, JUST BUY IT, YOU WON’T REGRET IT!!! Save some money, get a long lasting product, and be willing to change for the better.

I've used this for 2 years now, and really only use the vacuum to get all the leaves and blossoms that fall or blow around my pool and back patio area. It's quiet, lightweight, and I can do all the steps and upper and lower patio usually with just one battery, but sometimes I have to use a second one and recharge the first. It picks up all leaves, blossoms from my Oleanders, but not heavier twigs which I pick up myself as I go. It keeps my back "yard" looking really neat and clean. I also clean my front steps and get all the leaves before company comes. I just empty the mulch bag when I'm done.

Good Product
I bought this tool mainly because it was cordless. I waited til it came on sale so the price was right as well. I have very few leaves that drop from a neighbour’s maple tree, so it does the job with little effort. As some of the online reviewers said, it does have trouble picking up leaves from between/on 6-9” river rock but does well on flat surfaces. I can’t say how long the battery would last each time as I had my tool running for just around 1 hour

Not sure if I expected too much but very disappointed in the suction of the vacuum feature. And that was the primary reason for the purchase

Well designed, with pretty good power
The ease of use is very good. To switch between blower and vac, you just switch the nozzle/suction components which snap on and off quite easily. Leaves are mulched and fill up in the attached bag. The only thing that could be better is if the suction were more powerful to pick up twigs etc. But it works just fine for leaves.

Not much power
It has a very small amount of blowing power. It is however very quiet, probably because it isn't hardly blowing. I have another Black and Decker tool (a weed trimmer) that uses the same sized 40 volt battery and that battery makes it blow better. The battery supplied with this is under-powered and is of smaller capacity than the other battery I already have. By that I mean the new one has fewer Amp Hours than the one I already have and it would seem it has less voltage also.

how does it handle pine needles and/or wet leaves?
DJ on Mar 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: For wet leaves you need to go slow so that they don't jam up in the chute. The big thing is to allow for plenty or air circulation along with what is being picked up.
