Good light weight vac

I bought this to use around a swimming pool. It was taking me 10 minutes to vac around it with a corded vac but at least 10 minutes to get the cord out and fix it around so that the cable didn't dangle in the water. With this battery vac, it still takes 10 minutes to vac but no cord fixing time so its a real advantage. The only drawback is the pine straw that seems to clog up the vac blades but thus far I haven't experienced a jam. Lifting the vac so that the pine straw falls towards the blades overcomes this problem. So far I haven't used the blower as I already have a separate battery blower for the hard to reach places.

Pros: Light weight and very quiet

Cons: Ain't too keen on pine straw.

Good blower/vac

I like this blower/vac. I have a gas one that is very hard to start. I have a string trimmer that uses the same battery. That is why I bought this unit. I have two batteries so there is no problem if the battery runs out before I am done. This unit is very quiet and it has good power. My neighbour has a Maple tree that drops a ton of seeds on my patio and I am able to blow them off without any problem. I like the vacuum feature for cleaning up all the seeds that land on my back porch and the leaves along my fence.

Pros: No gas or extension cord, quiet

Cons: none

Cordless vacuum/blower LSWV36

This unit is exactly what I was looking for, to use around my patio and pool. I was using a electric blower/ vac but was always getting tangled up around the patio chairs and other pool side furniture. I was also afraid I would get so wrapped up in my cleaning, I would forget about the extension cord, which requires two plugged together for maximum length. I have to keep an eye on it so it doesn't trail off into the pool, and electrocute me. I am also afraid of losing my balance if I get the cord tangled up in something, and falling into the pool resulting in electrocuting myself. The B&D is the perfect solution, no cord to get tangled up, and no heavy bulky blower/vac to carry around, which may cause me to lose my balance, and fall into the pool. I tried the B/D out this morning, and vacuumed up around the pool and patio furniture with ease, and it picked up everything. I am very pleased with this unit. It has enough suction power to pick up light weight stuff, so it's perfect for picking up dead leaves on top of mulch. This is an added bonus, just enough power to pick up lightweight stuff on top of mulch, but not enough power to pick up mulch, which may damage the inner workings of the unit. I love this unit, I would very much recommend this product. Buy it you will love it.

Pros: Very simple to assemble and light weight, light enough my wife would use it. Adequate suction/blower power to use around my pool. I like that the bag attaches to the unit with a clip, after attaching the end let to the unit.

Cons: Battery life is a little short, but that's okay, because 30 minutes is all The time I need to clean up around my pool.

Excellent for cleaning leaves from gravel landscaped areas

I purchased the sweeper mainly as an excuse to purchase another battery for my B&D LST136 trimmer. The batteries provide high power, but for only a moderate timeframe, which depends upon what speed setting you are using. With the trimmer, I usually get 30 - 35 minutes of run time. It takes about 45 minutes to get a full recharge, so with two batteries you can take a short break at battery changes and work almost continuously. Before I purchased the sweeper with the second battery, I would mix my work between trimming or mowing based upon battery status. The total time was still less than when I used my older gas trimmer, because the battery unit worked so much better. With the second battery, I can get all my work down in one rotation.

I was very pleasantly surprised at how well the sweeper worked. Our landscaping in the front has one inch landscape gravel instead of mulch. We get a lot of oak and tulip tree leaves falling on them in the fall and winter, and by spring the leaves get stuck in the gravel. Raking or blowing them makes it worse. The gravel moves a little and then partially covers the leaves, which then are hard to remove. With the LSWV36, you can set the speed control to a moderate setting that is more than enough to vacuum leaves, but not so much to suck up the gravel. By dragging the tube on the gravel, the leaves come up easily. What was even more surprising was that it also did a great job of pulling up dirt, dust, and other debris from the gravel, cleaning it to the point that it looked noticeably better. If you have white marble chips, then this should work great for cleaning your areas.

With leaves that had wintered on the grown and were partially decomposed, the vacuum worked well for both picking up the leaves and mulching them into a fine dust. The later may not be the case in the fall, but I would think that it would work well then too.

The ability to vary the speed is a great asset on this tool. Not only does that help manage battery life, but also it allows you to match the tool to the job at hand. With the sweeper, you can slow it down to keep it from picking up heavier items like mulch that might jam or damage the machine, or speed it up to pick up things faster. When you switch to the blower attachment, it can send the leaves flying, or be slowed down to minimize dust or gravel being blown where you don't want it to be. The variable speed is a feature that really sets this tool apart from many others.

Pros: The variable speed allows you to regulate the level of vacuum to just what you need. Light weight, fast recharge, good mulching of dried leaves.

Cons: Small sized vacuum tube. Moderate battery life.

Great light weight product for small jobs.

40V MAX Sweeper/Vac works great for a 20 minute clean up. Using the unit on high speed #6 position and the battery will last approximately 20 minutes. Picking up leaves in Vac mode will fill the collection bag on a single battery charge. Diameter of vac tube is not appropriate for large leaves.

Pros: Light weight. Easy change-over from blower to vac. No electrical cord to drag behind and snag on plants.

Cons: Small diameter Vac tube will not pick up my larger Red Oak leaves. Need of 2nd battery for jobs taking more than 20 minutes.
