Handy THEV2600 Garden Vacuum and Leaf Blower
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.

This is a great bit of kit, easy instruction, easy to put together. This is powerful and done the job with ease, great value I recommend this.
A really good value for money product that performs well and is comparable in quality with products twice the price.
Good product, does what it says it will. When in vac mode, leaves going through the fan make a real racket, sounds like stones but it isn't. Value for money imo
It works very well, and was easy to put together.
Bought for my dad who is in his 80s light weight and easy to use. Good suction and blow
Very pleased with my purchase. It sucks, it blows with plenty of power. I had problems with the delivery, my usual delivery man was on holiday and as I live out in the countryside, up a private track, this caused it to be delivered much later. This was monitored by the team at Tooled Up. They made sure that it was taken care of by informing me on how the late delivery was progressing and reassuring me that it was a priority. Lucky for me my usual delivery man returned on the Monday and he delivered it safe and sound. I will use Tooled Up again, they were very good indeed........Five ?? Stars.
Very pleased with product. I thought that the service I received from your company was excellent.
Very pleased with this garden vac leaf blower, it's easy to use and does what it says, good performance, did the job in hand quite quickly and saves a lot of time. the only downside is, that I had to hold the on button down all the time while I was using it, but not too much of a problem.
Very pleased with this garden vac and leaf blower, easy to use and does what it says, the only downside is you have to hold the on button all the time you're using it, but not too much of a problem. Satisfied with this garden tool, saves a lot of to time.
An excellent addition for leaves and blossom around the garden, thank you
Best ever gadget! My husband loves it
All seems good.Used once with wet leaves and ok
I have use this leaf vac twice. It was easy to assemble and is light and portable. It is very efficient in collecting leaves and in shredding them. I am very satisfied with its performance so far. Hopefullly i will be able to comment on its reliability at the end of autumn.
I purchased the handy garden vac to pick up the leaves that were abundant in my garden. Since purchasing it the weather has been constantly wet or very damp. I decided to try and collect the leaves but did not hold out much hope as they were very wet. I was very pleased with the result, 95% of the wet leaves were collected. The blower is very effective, shifting even the wet leaves that were left. For the price a very good bit of kit. Only minus is the lead is a bit on the short side.
Machine appears very robust. Used it once and excellent results. Slight concern about apparent ability of impressive suction to lift gravel but on emptying well shredded leaves from bag did not see any small stones. Recommend.
Wonderful service, kept me informed all the time, wish everyone gave such service. you were excellent.
Speedy delivery. seems to be of good build quality - time will tell though. first impressions favourable - better performer than it's predecessor - a flymo which was twice the price.
It is a superb product gets the job done in seconds rather than hours with a broom only one fault is that the cable tie holding the bag on keeps snapping but getting an extra large metal jubilee clip hope that will cure it
Extremely rapid delivery and item looks sturdy. First class
Brilliant value and price
Excellent product for the price. only regret is that i did not buy one years ago!!
Much better that the vacuum it replaced. More compact, easier to handle with the extra blower feature.
Nice and light and easy to use. Cleaned up our pre school playground with ease
This garden blower/ vac works really well for blowing. The vac is ok but one needs to be on top of the items to vac up. Saying that good value for money. Recommended for occassional use in medium size garden. delivery was as promised. recommended
Wow what a top piece of kit for an amazing price! well done tooled-up for a great product
Excellent delivery service. Ordered on the friday and it was delivered on the monday. Had text to say what day it was going to be delivered and on the day had text to say what hour it was coming. Good value for money. Bought this for my daughter to save her raking and picking up the leaves as this was so back breaking. Did the job fine. Very easy to assemble just a little fiddly lining up the screws.
For the price this is a very good blower/vac, much more suction than my old (more expensive) garden vac, which is now defunct. light to carry and well balanced - from the adjustable shoulder strap it hangs at the right angle. build quality looks good, but as this is a new purchase i cannot really comment on this aspect of the unit, but it feels strong and rigid so it should be ok!
I am delighted with this product so far. very easy to use and really clears the leaves away very quickly.
Very light weight, easy to use, i am 73 and had no trouble assembling it or using it, very pleased with this product, beats a rake any day.
Seems ok so far!
it does what it says on the box!
Does the job quite efficiently. The only reservation is that it is quite heavy especially as it becomes full. However it is excellent value for money.
In terms of value for money it is great - a little too flimsy for the job as the suction is powerful enough to lift quite large stones. The shredding feature is quite good and breaks up dry leaves ready for the compost - not so efficient with wet leaves though. cable length provided is good although not quite enough for my needs but would be more than adequate for an average drive or garden. i didnt want to spend alot on a seasonal item so this has been a good first time buy. It was a mistake to buy it for my wife's birthday though!
Handy garden vac,light and powerful which makes it easier for the misses to use, does the job in half the time than a normal rake small bag is good because it needs emptying before it becomes too heavy
Does the job! no complaints!
The vacuum is very powerful and i find it both blows and sucks leaves really quite well. certainly alot better than my old garden vac. The bag is quite small but that is good because it needs emptying before it becomes ridiculously heavy. the zip is a bit fiddly but ok with patience. the down side is the quality of the plastic casing. on first use as a vac rather than blower it sucked up stones from my driveway and one of them has cracked the casing. others have hit the inside of the machine and the marks they have left are clearly visible externally suggesting this is quite poor quality plastic. the machine works fine but the crack will need gaffer tape. compared to others this is a relatively cheap garden vac and as always 'you get what you pay for'!!
I had been deciding for a number of years whether i needed such a tool. However after the first time of using it i am glad i made the right on. i have front and back garden that become full of leaves and bits of debris all the time. Before i used to rake and pick up almost every weekend. This was fine but it awlays killed my back. so i thought why put up with this and get a tool that helps my garden and back in one. this tool is quality. Got my gardens clear in half the time that it would be with raking and collecting. Plus with the shredder it starts the composting almost straight away. with the wheel on the end means you can easily get under those bushes and it rests on the ground which saves your back. great value for money and whoever is in a simalar situation to me then i suggest this is the one for you.
Arrived today, used it tonight and i am very impressed. light easy to use, might get the wife using it.
Good value for money.Not to bad to build and very good performance *****
I have only tried it once but it did the job of picking up garden debris from the patio, and around the garden. A bit noisy but ok for short spells. It's reasonably light so easy to move around with. really impressed by the speedy delivery and really appreciated being oven a delivery slot of 1hour! well done.
Great product and reasonably priced. tooled-up gave a prompt and efficient delivery service. i am very pleased.
Good buy for the money and easy to make up.
Great product for the money, my last leaf vac was a flymo. Very heavy but good performer but eventually died (motor bearing failure). The handy vac is light and is being put to good use and so far is excellent. tooled-up service was first class, speedy delivery.
It sucks up leaves and mulches as it's supposed to do
Easy to put together, light in weight and easy to use. Very pleased with the garden vac, just what i wanted.
Have not had chance to really use much,but so far results are encouraging.
After an initial hiccup with delivery which was quickly resolved thanks to tooled-up staff. The equipment arrived was quickly assembled without any problems. When tested the only complaint i have, and it is a small one, the zip on the bag appears to be rather flimsy and emptying was a bit of a fiddle. Otherwise i am delighted with the performance of the machine.
Good product , a bit to early to comment on reliability, completely satisfied as of now.
This is a great buy for me light to carry my wife loves it as she as a bad back i would recamed to any body and for only 40.00 pound fantastic buy thank you i will be buying from you again
Already reviewed this blower as it was bought last year - anyway all round good workshop blower - not used the vac function as i only use it to blow sawdust / chippings out of workshop bandsaw and table saw etc lost the vac bag anyway somewhere - good value for around £40 inc/exc post i can't remember - made of tough enough blow moulded wheely bin plastic ballistic nylon whatever so you can chuck it around the workshop about 20 feet and not sustain any catastrophic damage to unit - if damage occurs to unit like broken plastic panels always consult a high quality well trained harley st plastic surgeon to effect repairs - you can tell he is a high quality plastic surgeon as he will have ''made in taiwan'' stamped on the back of his head and his body and legs should be made of high quality polyurethane nylon but he should have real hands and feet- cheap good value unit 8/10
I would highly recommend this product. It's simple to use and at the flick of a switch turns from a blower to a vac. I scanned the web prior to purchasing and found this item met all my requirements. The bag has ample enough space for my needs and shreds dried leaves to confetti sizes well. the only thing i could think to moan about were the instructions which, although sparse, were perfectly adequate for me to put the pieces together.
Exellent value for money delivery as per e.Mail sent stating time and day
Performance is good on dry leaves but soon clogs up with wet leaves
Excellent value for money, excellent on delivery - received a text to tell me the day, then another to tell me the time (spanning 1 hour), arrived within the time stated - brilliant. don't try sucking up too many wet leaves, they have a tendancy to clog the entry to bag, but easy enough to clear.
I bought this for my husband he seems happy with it no complaints yet, cant fault it at the moment for the price very good
Sucks and blows well with a simple flick of a lever. I.E. No changing tubes etc. a switch de-activator should be added as can be switched on whilst swapping hands/lever position. Whilst not dangerous very off-putting. extra power model not necessary for most gardens .Suggest: use blow first . saves much power and sucking up un-necessarily . Plus good fun watching all those pesky leaves shhooting away.Even if not always in the right direction .Practise makes perfect . easier to use than my old petrol one.
So far looking good.Will the collection bag stay the course dragging along the floor?
Very good item for under £40 considering rival machines which are vastly more expensive - this is great for me blowing dust and wood shavings out of my bandsaw / planer and other workshop machinery - this is the only reason i bought it but have tried it outside blowing grass and leaves about after a good old seeing to of my front & back gardens with petrol brushcutter - no more grass cutting now til april thank god - not tried the vacuum feature at all as i just blow shavings out of my workshop into garden and burn them on fire etc - all in all recommended for under £45 with delivery and 10/10 for dpd couriers as well - delivery was timed within 1 hour of selected day and driver was bang on the money re; delivery time - don't know why all couriers can't be this good - good machine buy one - worx blower vac on tv is £80 and less powerful motor than this one and no you cant order a worx vac without the free loppers but they give them away free if you buy an £80 garden vac blower worth only around £50 - 10/10 for this one excellent
Seemed like a good product. however, on second use it sucked up a stone and this destroyed the plastic fan that drives both blower and vac. there is a parts helpline who were pleasant but so far unable to supply a new fan after a month now.
