  • Power: The Black+Decker BV3100 can force 300 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) from its nozzle at a maximum speed of 210 MPH.
  • Power delivery: Being that it is a corded blower with a 12 Amp motor, the BV3100 requires a steady power source and must be plugged in when using it. Note that the power cord might not be included with the blower. Should you wish to obtain one, use our gauge calculator.

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

  • Cord Lock Mechanism: It has a cord lock mechanism, so there’s far less risk of having the cord come unplugged when the unit is in operation.
  • Handling: For those who are looking for a portable and convenient leaf blower, this model is a strong candidate. It’s designed for easy handling and use, and its size means it’s easily carried and stored. When compared to other electric handheld blowers, the Black+Decker BV3100 stands out due to its lower weight: just 7 lbs.
  • Speed Settings: Black+Decker designed the BV3100 with control and precision in mind. That’s why this model has 2 speed settings, meaning that its air output can be adjusted to suit the user’s needs.
  • Vacuum: This unit isn’t just a blower—it has the added feature of being able to collect leaves and soft debris into a handy storage bag (9.3 gallon bag included).
  • Mulching: With a mulching ratio of 10:1, this mulcher can shrink 10 bags of leaves down to one bag of mulch, helping you get rid of unwanted leaves and debris.
  • Noise: As far as electric handheld blowers go, this one is average in terms of noise with a rating of 69 dB.

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.

  • Air exiting the nozzle of this blower can reach 210 MPH, which is quite a bit faster than most electric handheld blowers. 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 Bauer 58905, which boasts with 805 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.
