Overview of the Black+Decker BV3600

The Black+Decker BV3600

  • Power: This electric leaf blower features a maximum air volume rating of 385 CFM and an air speed rating of 230 MPH.
  • Power delivery: Being that it is a corded blower with a 12 Amp motor, the BV3600 requires a steady power source and must be plugged in when using it. Keep in mind that the power cord may not be part of the blower package. If you require one, or wish to have a spare, utilize our gauge calculator to find the appropriate cord.

    The Black+Decker BV3600 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 BV3600 weighs 8.1 lbs, placing it within the average weight range for electric handheld blowers, neither the lightest nor the heaviest in its category.
  • Speed Settings: Black+Decker designed the BV3600 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: The BV3600 is also what is known as a 'blower vac'. Those who don’t wish to blow leaves and debris away can switch to its vacuum setting and suck them into a collection bag (14 gallon bag included).
  • Mulching: The manufacturer’s specifications give it a mulching ratio of 10:1. For every 10 bags you put in, it will reduce down to just one bag of mulch.
  • Noise: Its noise level of 69 dB falls within the expected range for electric handheld blowers.

The Black+Decker BV3600's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Black+Decker BV3600 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 230 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.
  • The BV3600 is average in terms of air volume. It's rated at 385 CFM, which is common for electric handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Husqvarna 350iB, with 800 CFM, could be in your good books.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other blower vacs, the Black+Decker BV3600 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.
