Black and Decker BEBLV300 Garden Vacuum and Leaf Blower with Back Pack Collection
There are three main types of leaf blowers – Petrol, corded electric and cordless electric. As a general rule, Petrol blowers offer the most power at the expense of being heavier and noisier and than their electric counterparts, and typically come at a higher price.
Electric blowers are much quieter and more suitable for residential areas, and are usually powered by either lithium ion battery packs, or mains electricity.
Corded variants are cheaper to manufacture as they don’t require batteries or chargers, though their obvious limitation is the length of cord they are attached to.
Cordless variants offer much more freedom, though the amount of time they can be used for is dependent on the charge in their batteries. Higher amp-hour (ah) batteries will offer the most runtime, while higher voltage machines will provide more power.
Leaf blowers can also be effective at clearing snow, dust and dirt; however please bear in mind they are not designed to shift piles of wet leaves and much better results can be obtained by waiting for these to dry out first.

Extremely pleased with the vac/blower, so much easier to use than the hand held type. Dealt with all my leaves easily. Good quality item.
This seems a very useful upgrade on the previous model I had. I particularly like the back pack collection system and am looking forward to using more next year.
I am amazed by the suction performance of this machine, even when leaves are wet. However, change the suction tube is a real hassle, and I am not weak and I have DIY skills. It is difficult to twist the suction tube on its base, and then remove the suction base from the main machine. It is not just that the safety lock requires the rod, the two pieces of plastic just do not move easily. And when I replace the suction tube I often have to twist and wiggle to get the suction tube in the right place to activate the machine. I realised the problem is that the plastic surfaces are not smooth enough, too much friction. So I sprayed the end of the suction tube, and the base unit of the suction tube, with a silicone spray, and now it just effortlessly twists and detaches, and reassembling is just as easy. It now takes seconds to change the tubes, with minimal effort. When I am manipulating the machine and detaching the suction tube I always detach the bag first, there is too much risk of damaging the bag to machine corrugated connection if it is subject to excessive force.
What a great tool this is I bought this for my husband as he is always complaining about the other garden vacuums and leaf blowers he has saying they get blocked up they are not strong enough or they are to bulky he is over the moon with his Black and decker garden vacuum and leaf blower its light weight and picks up twice as much and faster than any other garden vacuum he's ever had before there is nothing he can say that he dislikes about this product its 5 star
The blower works fine but only after I had to call the supplier for information on how to get it working. The instructions are very limited to say the least and, judging by the response from the supplier, I wasn’t the only confused customer.
Good product. A bit fiddly to assemble and not easy to change from suck to blow with special tool, but once done work well
Only used in vacuum mode and performance very good especially shredding leaves. Sadly the vacuum tube connecting bag to device split at the connection with the vacuum necessitating shortening the flexible tube to remake connection. Tube now a bit too short for comfort and really needs renewing but cannot find the tube itself as a spare part and renewing whole (high quality) bag will be very expensive.
Good performance i.e. powerful suction and blow. Much better to have the rubbish in a backpack (easier to carry). However the build is not too good in that the fan blades already show wear where small stones have been sucked up and swapping from blow to suck means ill fitting parts stick or are tight to turn to lock. Why oh why have they made it necessary to use a tool to unclip the parts. It is such an irritating pain. Instead of taking a couple of seconds to swap from a blower to a vacuum it takes minutes of frustration and for that reason I would not recommend or buy another in the future.
The mulch feature is excellent and the back pack helps the weight not that it's really heavy just helps with posture and its powerful too.
The instructions from B&D are only average, devoting ten pages to Health and Safety and little to actually operating the machine, to such an extent I was on the point of returning it because it would not function. This common fault was picked up by your staff and a remedy executed over the phone. A good product, even if a little fiddly to use and very good service from your company
I'd had an old B&D leaf blower which had started to make a noise as the impeller had worked loose. I did a bit of research and decided one with a cord would have more power and for walking round my garden that wasn't too big a disadvantage. I looked at Bosch and other makes, but they had mixed reviews. This is good value and has a massive 3000W motor with a decent extension cord. I mainly use it for blowing. You can set two fan speeds. It's quite noisy, especially in confined spaces. The back pack for leaf collecting feels well made and is more practical than the sacks which hang below most vacuums. It's quite plasticky, but I think it will give many years of service as long as it's not abused too much. It's excellent value for the money and makes light work of leaf clearance compared to raking. Another review mentioned a tool was needed to switch over from blowing to vacuum. It's only a metal rod to release the mechanism and is included in the box. Am sure you could use a screwdriver - it's only a push release.
This garden Vac/Blower is very powerful and it is easy to clean. The rucksack type bag for collecting leaves makes it light on the arms to use. The only draw back is that a tool is required to change from vac to blower and back but that makes it very safe. A plus is that spares are available.
Probably the worst power tool I have ever had the displeasure to use.
How do you get it to work? Can get neither the original nor its replacement to work! Can anyone advise?
Bought one and it refused to work at the second time of asking. Sent it back to B&D who returned it without comment but there was a 13 amp fuse in a little plastic bag. It was not the fuse as I had changed it twice to no avail before contacting B&D. Used it twice more then it packed in again. Binned it. It is the most useless piece of electrical kit I have ever bought. Cannot Recommend A Purchase.
Poor instructions, fiddly to work with and just not worth the hassle. Have only just purchased it and wish I hadn't......still can't find the switch to turn it on.
Sadly we struggled to assemble this product (had to get our savvy neighbour to help after 45 minutes of trying) and when it was assembled the on switch didn't work at all. On calling Tooled-up I was told it was a teething problem and he could explain how to fix it. By this point we had lost the will to re-assemble it and try again. It cost me £16 to return it as they wouldn't accept it was faulty. I suggest the company informs customers in advance of the product's potential to have teething problems. I will never buy a big electric product online ever again!
Black&Decker needs a industrial designer! You need a screw driver to unplug the vacuum bag or the hose...B&D provides a sttel rod for that...but there is nowhere to fix the rod to the tool when not in use!!! So you lose it / never have it with you when you need it. Seriously idiotic designers. They should find another job. Otherwise the vacuum is powerful, bag on backpack is super practical. You’ll just swear when you need to remove a hose
Absolute rubbish - clogs up at the merest hint of seeing a leaf, a total pain to take apart with the daft locking mechanism that needs a spurious metal rod to take apart and a safety kicking mechanism that gets blocked by leaves. The one seeming redeeming feature of the product, being the backpack bag, is a failure as well as the hose comes off too easily, it's elevated from the fan and therefore exacerbates the aforementioned clogging up and only really gets 1/3rd full before it stops working (but that's ok as the whole thing needs disassembling way before then to remove the leaves stuck around the plastic fan). Don't waste your money like me - get something else.
The best of its kind on sale today. Build quality leaves a bit to be desired but good value for money. Powerful blower. Leaf collection great as long as they are dry and no twigs present. Overall I can recommend this item. It performs well, compared to similar electric blower / vacs of equal value
Customer Questions & Answers
Q : How on earth do you switch this machine on? Have looked in the instruction booklet (such as it is) but we cannot find the on/off switch. Please help
A : Hi Christine, it sounds like the tube has probably not been installed correctly - a lot of people experience the same issue you are having, where they can't switch the machine on, but it is usually because there is a microswitch which hasn't been engaged - this only happens when the blower or vacuum tube has properly clicked into place, so in all likelihood you just need to try fitting this component again. As noted in a previous response, there is a PDF guide available for download at the bottom of our product page which shows the steps needed to install the tubes correctly, which will hopefully help you out.
Q : Does this model have a metal impeller like the GW3031BP on the Black and Decker website?
A : Hi there, this one is plastic and in fact I think all of Black & Decker's current range are fitted with plastic impellers as far as I know. We used to stock the GW3031BP and although it is still listed on their website they have since discontinued it and we can't buy them any more
Q : I can't get mine to work (bought from Amazon). I understand that there is often a simple fix - I am sure that I am at fault as neither the original nor the replacement work...any advice? Is there a hidden on switch?
A : Hi Dean, sorry I've already replied to you (didn't realise you asked the question here as well) but I'm sure this will be of use to others so will publish it here as well - essentially there is a microswitch that needs to be engaged by seating the tube correctly on the machine, and you will hear this click into place once you have worked it into the necessary position (on some models in this series you need to move it along a further step until you hear another click). The motor won't run until this switch is depressed, and a PDF guide is provided in the Downloads section at the bottom of the product page on our website which hopefully explains it a bit better with visual diagrams.
Q : I just bought Black and Decker BEBLV3000 W Garden Vacuum and Leaf Blower with Back Pack and it is very poorly indicated what type of Allen key or screwdriver is recommended to remove the fan cover. Given the price, I wish a good explanation, the record is quite vague. Thank you
A : Hi Mias, Black & Decker don't recommend a screwdriver or allen key as they actually supply a tool in the box for removing the fan cover (at least they do in the UK) - it may be worth double checking this isn't in amongst your packaging somewhere?
Q : How is this with vacuuming wet leaves?
A : Hi Neil, electric blower vacs in general aren't recommended for wet leaves - not only is wet debris much harder to pick up, it poses an electric safety risk, clogs easily and causes mould to form inside collection bags.
Q : How long is the power cable, please.
A : Hi Miguel, the cable attached to these is usually less than a metre long so it's safe to assume you will need to use a suitable extension lead.
Q : Can this be used for litter? If not is there anything you can suggest?
A : Hi Tony, this will be suitable for blowing light litter and debris but I'm guessing you're talking about vacuuming, in which case the problem will be that any objects more substantial than leaves may well clog up the impeller (instead of being shredded by it) - you can buy large wheeled litter vacuums but we don't stock any and I'm guessing they would be overkill for your purposes. A cheaper and simpler manual option would be a handheld litter picker? (the Gardena model 21005220 is a popular choice)
Q : How do you switch it on we cant make it work, nothing happens when we slide the slider
A : Hi Jane, unfortunately Black & Decker don't have a manual online for this product at the moment but it should be a simple on/off procedure. There could be a number of reasons why it's not starting up so I'd recommend phoning customer services to try and troubleshoot the problem and arrange for a return if it appears to be faulty.
