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

  • Cord Lock Mechanism: Since accidental disconnection can be a real inconvenience, the BV6000 features a reliable cord lock to prevent 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. All told, it weighs 8.1 lbs — the Black+Decker BV6000 is neither the lightest nor the heaviest electric handheld blower on the market.
  • Speed Settings: Not all jobs need full power. The BV6000 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 BV6000 handily vacuums unwanted material into a storage bag for easy disposal (14 gallon bag included).
  • Mulching: The manufacturer’s specifications give it a mulching ratio of 16:1. For every 16 bags you put in, it will reduce down to just one bag of mulch.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 68 dB, the BV6000 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric handheld category.
