Overview of the Black+Decker BV3600

The Black+Decker BV3600 in use

The Black+Decker BV3600

  • Power: The BV3600 is an electric blower made by Black+Decker. It has a maximum air speed of 230 MPH and its nozzle can expel a max air volume of 385 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • Power delivery: This is a corded blower, so its 12 Amp motor needs to be plugged into a power source during use. 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.

  • Cord Lock Mechanism: Anyone who has experienced the frustration of having their blower suddenly stop from being accidentally unplugged will be glad to know that the BV3600 has a 'cord lock' mechanism.
  • Handling: With its handheld design, this leaf blower was created with portability in mind. Most users will have no problem using it almost anywhere. At 8.1 lbs, the Black+Decker BV3600 is within the average weight range of electric handheld blowers.
  • Speed Settings: Thanks to its 2 speed settings, the Black+Decker BV3600 allows the user to adjust the air output to the task in hand.
  • Vacuum: For those who really want to make leaves disappear, the BV3600 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 (14 gallon bag included).
  • Mulching: With a mulching ratio of 10:1, this mulcher can reliably pulp 10 bags of waste (such as leaves and other debris) into 1 bag of mulch.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 69 dB, the BV3600 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric handheld category.

  • Forced air exiting this blower has been clocked at a max speed of 230 MPH. This puts the BV3600 ahead of the pack as far as air speed is concerned in electric handheld blowers.
