McCulloch GBV 345 Petrol Garden Vacuum & Leaf Blower
It is important to read all instructions regarding petrol products. 4 Stroke engines require oil and some machines are supplied dry (No oil to start with). Running a 4 stroke petrol machine without oil will result in the engine seizing and is not covered under warranty.
2 Stroke engines will need to have a mix of oil in the petrol this is normally 1 part oil to 50 parts petrol but not always, again please read the instructions supplied with your machine. Petrol engines do require more maintenance than electric engines but if reguarly maintained they will normally give many years of use.
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.

Does what it says on tin. Starts easily. Only criticism is that fitting the vacuum bag is a bit fiddly. Otherwise a good honest machine
Have the blower 1 week now and it's brilliant. Great blowing power. It's makes cleaning up leaves an easy task. Haven't used the collection bag as I just blow then into one pile and burn them. Was very happy with the price and delivery was fast. Defiantly recommended.
Lovely piece of kit, easy to start and great at sucking up leaves. The bag holds a reasonable amount certainly enough for a medium sized garden.I'm very happy with my purchase and also a great service from Tooled up, great price and fast delivery.
Prime 6 times and starts on the second pull from cold without fail everytime, absolutely delighted and dont regret the purchase, only thing I would recommend you dont do is put that cone thing on the end of the blower pipe, it reduces the performance too much
Great as blower, but the vacuum function is a pain, it doesn't shred the leaves and so doesn't reduce the size of the leaves, emptying the bag is really not easy, surely the shoulder strap should be on the machine not on the bag!!!
Once it starts very good at picking up leaves - that's when the problems start. The bag fitting is a joke, the zip is far too small to empty the leaves. Difficult to start when cold , and impossible when hot or warm. But as I said it is powerful.
Quick delivery. Arrived next day. Blowing side works great and suction is very good. I wouldn't agree that it mulches 16-1 as advertised. At the end of the day its a good machine for the price paid. Its too early to say about reliability but if its anything like my mcculloch strimmer then it should last years.
Delivered next day by parcelforce - even got a text saying "your delivery will be with you in the next 90 mins" - so excellent delivery service. blower looks to be well made, put some fuel in (40:1 mix) and it started on second pull. Worth reading the manual as it has tips on starting cold / warm / flooded. a quick test - its very powerful (much more so than the gbv250 i borrowed) so i am happy so far. can't fault tooled-up.Com, not ordered from them before but excellent service.
Does exactly what is say's on the box
Great blower/vac. the only complaint is the hassle of changing from blower to vac. its not a big issue but when using it as all day long for my gardening business it gets abit annoying.
I had an electric one before, what a difference. build quality great, i use primarily to clear leaves from 2 enormous oaks, and it saves me a vast amount of time, blow and vacuum both great. occasional clog on vacuum, but 2 minute job to resolve. highly recommended
Great little machine. Light and easy to use. Prompt service and delivery.
Extremely pleased with your service. delivery was on time and i am delighted with my purchase
An easy to use machine that starts well and has a high pickup performance. The collection bag is a good size and the blower is very effective.
Having just been delivered, i have not had the opportunity to use it. The packaging was excellent, delivery reasonably fast, but i had great bother getting it from tooled-up. Not really there fault as they were unable to get it from the distributor. i've had to wait 8 weeks, but as it was a mccullough i wanted i think the wait was well worth it, they make excellent equipment. As soon as this rain and bad weather stops and i get a chance to cut grass i'll update this review.
It ok do the price
