Description

With up to 250 mph of blowing power, this high-performance electric blower/vac/mulcher isn't just powerful, it's low noise. A high-impact metal fan helps to prevent clogging while grinding up to 16 bags of mulch down to one. (source: Black+Decker)

Overview of the Black+Decker BV5600

  • Power: The BV5600 is an electric leaf blower made by Black+Decker. It has a maximum air speed of 250 MPH and its nozzle can expel a max air volume of 400 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • Power delivery: This unit, featuring a 12 Amp engine, is a corded blower. It must be plugged into an electrical outlet with a reliable power source at all times during operation. 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 BV5600 has a 'cord lock' mechanism.
  • Handling: Being handheld, this blower has a good maneuverability and is meant to be easier to carry around over a small period of time. However, for a electric handheld blower, the Black+Decker BV5600 is heavier than most, weighing 8.1 lbs.
  • Speed Settings: Not all jobs need full power. The BV5600 has 2 speed settings so, you can blow more or less air from the blower depending on the job.
  • Vacuum: As a blower vac, the BV5600 handily vacuums unwanted material into its storage bag for easy disposal.
  • Mulching: With a mulching ratio of 16:1, this mulcher can shrink 16 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 68 dB.
