    Does not live up to the Black & Decker name. Change the name and sell it at Ollie's or Big Lots.
    As a blower it's fine. No better or worse that other brands. Two speed is a nice feature. That's about it. That's all it's good for. In the Vacuum mode, you will be so disappointed. My advice if you buy it. Take it home. Do your chores. Take it back. It won't work next year. The shoulder bag will have dry rotted and will crumble in your hands.

    It comes in a pretty box.


    The shoulder bag is SMALL and a piece of crap. First chance to use it and it's dry rotted. Crumbles in your hand. $11.50 to replace it with $12.99 shipping it makes replacement with a competitor's produce reasonable. An obvious defect in quality, materials, workmanship, and so many other things. Ask me if I'll buy another B&D product. Trust me, I'll do my homework next time. An old proverb is, Buy the best and you will cry only one time.

    Bag is for the birds!
    I purchased my second bag for this blower and the zipper split after the second use. I was able to put a temporary fix on it using a large safety pin. Now the seam stitching is disintegrating and I'm about to order bag number 3!!!

    Not much. The low price = low quality!


    The "lightweight" label on this blower is the appropriate description. It performs horribly....

    Good electric blower. Horrible vac bag
    Always used gas powered until now. This works great as a blower. Two speeds is more than helpful

    Two speeds option for differering needs. Lightweight, ergonomic handles.


    Was ready to use the vac and bag for the first time in a year. Pulled it out of the garage and it was dry rotted and crumbled into hundreds of pieces on my patio. Completely worthless and now I get to pick up a ton of leaves by hand. Just like my grandfather did decades ago. Thanks black and decker. Much like my grandfather I must say "they don't make things like they used to." Or maybe they do, just not black and decker?

    After 15 months blower motor smells hot and does not maintain speed.
    Worked well for 1st. season only. As I work where I purchased this product, I will not be recommending this to anyone.



    No durability

    Blows good/Vacuum not so good
    I purchased this because of the lower price. I had a more expensive Blower Vac that failed after 5 years of limited use. All the more I need it I couldn't justify spending $$$. This unit blows good but when I used the vac it kept clogging up. I discovered that leaves were catching on the seam where the tubes join together. If they would have designed the end half to slip inside the other half I feel it would have eliminated the lip that catches the leaves. I would have give it 4 stars if it weren't for the clogging...



    Vacuum tube is a poor design!

    Don't Bother - Bag rips and there are no replacements
    We got this blower as a Christmas gift last year. I used it a few times in the spring, then started using it more this fall. The weekend before our last leaf pick-up, the bag ripped. Every time I'd try to tape up a rip, a new one would form. We went to this web site to try to find replacements. This page showed 2 replacements in the right hand corner under Accessories and Attachments: Leaf Collection System for all Black and Decker Blower Vacs and Replacement Collection Bag for Blower/Vacuums. So we checked them out and them ordered both. Unfortunately, neither of these accessories fit the BV3100. The leaf collection system actually says it fits ALL models. Nope. And if you look at the details for the Replacement Collection Bag for Blower/Vacuums it actually does indicate that it only fits 1 model. So, overall, I'd say don't waste your money. The bag will rip in less than a year and there are no replacements despite the website's lies.

    Worked well until the bag ripped. Now it's pretty useless.


    Bag rips and there are no replacements despite the fact that the website lies and says there are. Don't believe it.

    Works GREAT
    This worked GREAT to remove a TON of leaves from my Lawn here in Alaska. The blower portion is STRONG in the max power zone, and it is great to have the lower power when you are pushing the leaves into a final stack, so as not to over blow them all over the yard again. Once all the leaves are in a stack, swap over to the suction mode and take care of business. The bag hold much more than you would think because it chops up the leaves into smaller bits. That said I had to empty the bag about 10 times on my medium sized lawn. But emptying the bag is QUICK and EASY. MUCH EASIER than emptying a lawn mower bag. I WISH I had bought this thing years ago, as I am 58 now and up to now raked the lawn, (or had my kids rake it). THIS tool REALLY made the leaf cleanup chore MUCH MUCH easier. Next year I will not be dreading fall cleanup!!!

    The fact that it works both as a blower AND a vacuum. AND that the leaf bag can be emptied and remounted super quickly!!


    It is a tad difficult to switch to the vacuum or sucking mode...BUT with practice I got pretty quick at that too....IT IS EASY to swap back to the Blower mode by the way.
