The Black and Decker Leaf Blower does an O.K. job blowing leaves. If you expect it to vacuum don't count on it. Weight The leaf blower is o.k. as far as weight goes but could be a little lighter. Performance This blower is pretty good for blowing leaves but does a terrible job as far as vacuuming goes. It doesn't seem to vacuum up as many leaves as I can pick up with my hands. Handling The handling of the blower is acceptable, it seems to be a good size. Ease of Use It is easy to use, just plug it in and off you go. Durability The durability of this blower is not very good. The plastic is very rigid and seems to break easily. As far as the motor goes it seems pretty durable.
