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: This electric leaf blower has a maximum air volume rating of 400 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed rating of 250 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 engine 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.
  • Cord Lock Mechanism: Since accidental disconnection can be a real inconvenience, the BV5600 features a reliable cord lock to prevent it from being unplugged during use.
  • Handling: Being handheld, this blower has a good maneuverability and is meant to be easier to carry around over a small period of time. Be aware that, at 8.1 lbs, the Black+Decker BV5600 is on the heavier side for electric handheld blowers.
  • 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 a storage bag for easy disposal.
  • Mulching: This mulcher’s 16:1 mulching ratio means it can reduce 16 bags of leaves and debris down to one bag of mulch.
  • Noise: As far as electric handheld blowers go, this one is average in terms of noise with a rating of 68 dB.
