Overview of the Black+Decker BV3100

The Black+Decker BV3100 in use

The Black+Decker BV3100

  • Power: The Black+Decker BV3100 is an electric blower with a maximum air volume rating of 300 CFM and an air speed of 210 MPH.
  • Power delivery: As it is a corded model, the blower needs to be plugged in to a power source in order for the 12 Amp motor to operate. Please note that some manufacturers don’t include the cord with the unit. If this is the case, or if you’re looking to buy a backup, please use our gauge calculator to ensure you’re buying the right cord for your blower.

    The Black+Decker BV3100 features a 12-amp motor, which works on 120V

    For this unit and this selected length, you should choose an extension cord with an AWG rating of

  • Cord Lock Mechanism: This unit has a handy 'cord lock' feature, which prevents it from being unplugged during use.
  • Handling: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds. The Black+Decker BV3100 distinguishes itself among other electric handheld blowers for its lightweight design, weighing just 7 lbs.
  • Speed Settings: Thanks to its 2 speed settings, the Black+Decker BV3100 allows the user to adjust the air output to the task in hand.
  • Vacuum: For those who really want to make leaves disappear, the BV3100 has a handy 'blower vac' feature (the keyword here being 'vac', aka 'vacuum'). It allows the operator to collect leaves and light debris in a collection bag to be easily discarded after the job is finished (9.3 gallon bag included).
  • Mulching: Its impressive mulching ratio of 10:1 allows this mulcher to compress 10 bags of leaves and debris into just one bag of mulch.
  • Noise: Its noise level of 69 dB falls within the expected range for electric handheld blowers.

The Black+Decker BV3100's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Black+Decker BV3100 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 210 MPH, which is rather impressive for an electric handheld blower. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Craftsman CMEBL7000 and its 260 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • Its max air volume rating (300 cubic feet per minute) means it is really not the biggest air producer of electric handheld blowers. For the highest air volume, you may want to have a look at the Husqvarna 350iB, which boasts with 800 CFM.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other blower vacs, the Black+Decker BV3100 is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget blower.

The bottom line

  • Inexpensive
