Black and Decker GWC3600L 36v Cordless Garden Vacuum and Leaf Blower
Battery AH Explained
The best way to describe battery amp hour is that this is effectively the size of your fuel tank, the more amp hours your battery has then the longer the battery will last between charges. More amp hours does not increase the power of a given tool.
Battery Voltage Explained
A tool with a higher voltage than another is a bit like choosing an engine in a car, the higher voltage will generally mean higher power & performance. As with cars though a bigger engine does not always translate to better performance so it is important to compare the specifications of tools at different voltages between different manufacturers.
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.

All good so far, autumn leaves will tell!
As I already own a Black and Decker cordless strimmer it made sense to stay with this manufacturer when I needed a lightweight leafblower/vacuum. Both tools are robust and comfortable to use in my medium sized garden. The vacuum action is excellent when used on a hard surface and readily picks up small dry leaves. Unfortunately, it can't handle the long stalks found on the larger Sycamore leaves and easily gets clogged. This is not all that surprising as my petrol driven Stihl had the same problem. Overall, for the price, this new addition will fit in well with my garden management.
Bought this battery operated leaf vacuum as I was finding it difficult to cope with the wired one and the extension leads. So far I am very pleased with the new one. It does not suck up stones like the old one and on eco setting the battery lasts reasonable time. It is quieter than the old one so do not need ear protection.
I have just purchased both a Black and Decker Garden Vacuum and a Black and Decker Hedge Cutter from Tooled-Up, Both are excellent products both in value for money and performance. I must congratulate Tooled-Up for a first class buying experience, cannot fault and I will certainly buy from them and recommend this Company highly.
Good value product purchased to clear leaves in garden mainly. Does the job well and is really good quality. Also found it to be the best price anywhere. Excellent.
Birthday present for my dad - he loves it - delivered quickly- no complaints. Thank you
Very pleased with the product purchased the battery lasts about 30minutes I'm pleased to say, wish it lasted a little longer but not too worry. I will probably buy another battery from you later on. Well worth the money though.
Lightweight and effective leaf blower. Battery life could be longer but so far seems adequate Good quality product
Obviously the machine is plastic but that said it is sturdy and light. I just bought the bare machine because I already had a battery and charger for my chainsaw ( which I find quite good for garden work) so I use them and felt the power would be good. which it is. I picked up some leaves that were wet and it didn’t cope well, it blocked up! It is a vacuum not a mulcher and only has a quite small plastic impeller. Would benefit from a more robust one which could maybe break them up more. wearing neat fitting garden gloves will help the grip and controls! I haven’t had a good supply of dry leaves to give it a proper test. Maybe next year.
Bought this somewhat on the grounds that I already had the battery that came with the B&D strimmer, and that has been very satisfactory. Wanted something not *too" powerful, because it should pick up leaves and not gravel, and so far it seems good at this. Sadly it's been raining quite a lot around here, and this machine is not great at dealing with soaking wet leaves. The real test will come when we get a couple of dry days and we see how it performs at clearing drier leaves from around shrubs etc. So the 4* for features and performance are mainly because it's not had a real chance yet to demonstrate its abilities.
I bought this particular product as I already had a Black and Decker strimmer and a hedge trimmer that take the same battery and I have been delighted with them. This is equally good but unless you have a limited area to blow, having the extra batteries is extremely useful - the battery lasts at least 20 minutes. It is simple to put together and easy to change from a blower to a vacuum. I would certainly recommend.
I'm sure there are better products on the market at a higher price but this is ideal for my limited use, small garden and leaves/debris around two family graves. I didn't want a petrol one so this rechargeable one is good. Excellent value for money.
I purchased the Garden Vac a few weeks ago and it is absolutely fine and meets my requirements, it is easy to change from suction to blower, it very light and easy to use. Unfortunately it doesn’t have the power that a mains supply one has which is to be expected but equally so there are no trailing cables. I do certainly recommend it for use in an average size garden but not for industrial/commercial use. Phil North Lincolnshire
I have the strimmer so didn’t need a battery and charger. Good value for money therefore. Have used the blower and is good enough to do the job. Not enough leaves yet for mulcher so may get 5 stars. Quality is good just like the strimmer. Definitely recommend Black and Decker cordless products.
Very light and easy to use for collecting dry leaves, it does however not jam easy on wet leaves. I like the way it mulches the leaves so for a small machine collects plenty.
Great purchase & speedy delivery
Great purchase & speedy delivery
I have looked at dozens of leaf blowers/vacuums and this seemed the best. And it was. A wonderful machine. Great packing and quick delivery.
Brilliant. It’s so light, fits together easily and has controllable speeds and is comfortable to handle. Excellent buy.
Picks up well but doesn’t like damp leaves or dirt. Overall an excellent tool for a medium garden

Customer Questions & Answers
Q : Please can you tell me how long it is currently taking for this item to be delivered/ Todays date is 24th May 2020.
A : Hi Gloria, currently we are experiencing unprecedented demand for home and garden products so there are long delays expected until things start to calm down but the ETA will be shown underneath the price on the website once you have chosen what battery option you need from the green drop down menu
Q : Hello, Does this blower vaccume and shred and comes with a collection bag? Also, does this work with the battery from Black & Decker GLC3630L 36v Cordless Telescopic Grass Trimmer 300mm? Thanks John
A : Hi John, yes - it is supplied with a bag and has an integrated shredder which provides a debris reduction ratio of 7:1. All the current Black & Decker 36v garden tools share battery compatibility (so that's the grass trimmer you mentioned, this blower vac, a hedge trimmer, chainsaw and a couple of lawn mowers) many thanks!
Q : Hi, I have a 36v strimmer in this product range. Does the same BL2036 battery fit this vacuum & blower?
A : I can confirm that the BL2036 battery is compatible with the GWC3600L
Q : Does this also include a charger for the battery?
A : I can confirm that if you select the kit with a battery and charger it will be supplied with a battery and charger. If you purchase the body only it will be supplied with no battery or charger.
Q : According to some of the customer reviews you maintain that this vac must only be used for dry leaves but there is no mention of this in the Black and Decker manual. What is the correct answer.
A : Wet leaves, in general, are much harder to work with as the additional water makes them heavier and they tend to stick and clump together which means battery-powered machines may struggle to suck them up and due to the water may cause clogging in the tubes and impeller. Petrol powered machines may cope better however they require regular maintenance and servicing and are a lot heavier.
Q : What is the nominal battery back up of the machine for using in garden to collect leafs
A : I can confirm that the only 36v battery currently available for this machine is BL20362 which is a 2ah 36v battery
Q : How long will the battery last using the vacuum on one full charge?
A : I have looked in to this for you and can confirm the battery does not have a certain usage time. The usage will depend on how hard the machine has to work therefore if the machine is sucking up larger items the machine will have to work harder meaning the battery is used more.
