Quality product except the bag

Only used the vacuum attachment twice. Did a great job picking up the leaves but the bag started to shred where it connects to the unit after 0ne usage. I tried sewing the hole with nylon tread but the bag shredded next to the repair.

Pros: Excellent blower. Have used to clear light snow from driveway. Works great. As mentioned, the vacuum work does a good job picking up and mulching leaves.

Cons: The collection bag needs a redesign and a better quality material. B & D should recall the bags and replace with something better if they want to maintain their reputation for quality equipment.

Used it a couple of times and does a good job but the bag is needs some reinforcement

Overall, I am satisfied with the product itself, but the bag that comes with it needs reinforcement at the neck area where the fabric converges to meet the plastic neck. When running in vacuum mulching mode, the air and leaves leave the back end of the unit with so much force that the bag fabric started to wear away. And this was during my first use of the bag. So I hope that Black & Decker can do something about it and make a stronger bag and also provide me with a replacement.

Pros: Power

Cons: Durability of the shoulder bag

Works great when it works....

I've been using the vacuum portion mostly on this B & D LH5000 yard blower vacuum, it works very well when it works, that's the problem though, it works great for about a year or so then the mirco switch built into the main orange power body gets worn out, I guess, and starts to short out turning the unit off then on, then off again. Nothing quite like being out in 95 degree heat trying to finish your yard and this happens, and I have always kept my tools clean & dry. This is my third replacement from 2008, so Black & decker does stand behing their warranty! I had a Toro before the Black & Decker Leaf Hog. This is much better as to doing the job!

Pros: Vacuums very well and chews up leafs into fine mulch. Black & Decker does stand behing their products as to warranty replacement!

Cons: Mirco switch seems to last only a year before wearing out, but Black & Decker will stand behind their products and will replace it under warranty if you register it online or by mail. My Toro yard vac I had before this unit in 2006 only lasted a year and they didn't replace their unit as Black & Decker has three times over 4 years!
