    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Light
    Easy on/off switch
    Sturdy
    Battery Powered
    Cons: Not the most powerful.  Not for professional use.

    Summary: The best feature of this blower is that it is cordless and isn't a super big gas powered blower.  It uses a simple battery that is easy to snap on and off.  A woman would be able to use this very easily.  It isn't so powerful that it is ... read more

    Pros: Lightweight, fun and easy to use, maneuverable
    Cons: yeah...the battery issue, although cheaper than makita's

    Summary: This is the second cordless blower we own. (the other is the makita) We have bought them both because I guess I am always on a quest for the quicker picker upper, or blower, should I say. I love it! With cordless, there is always the issue of batteries ... read more

    Pros: Easy to carry (very light weight).
    Cons: Battery power only lasts 10-15 minutes. The blower is not that powerful.

    Summary: I purchased the Black & Decker Cordless Broom a few months ago at a local Lowe's Home Improvement Warehouse. The assembly of the product was a snap. I had to charge the batteries for at least 9 hours which bothered me at first, but then I got over ... read more

    Cons: I have to use it.

    Summary: Doing yard work blows! Ok, OK. I know that’s a cheap shot lead-in when reviewing a device designed to blow stuff off the sidewalk. I’ve always admitted that I’m cheap and lazy so what else can be expected? As a matter of fact, I’m so ... read more

    Rated Show
    Pros: Black and Decker ruin any chance of a pro with lack of granular replacement parts.
    Cons: Shame on B&D for being thoughtless about the environment by not selling a replacement impeller.

    Summary: Black and Decker chooses to not provide a replacement part for the cheap plastic impeller which is the first thing to go.  It probably costs about 10 cents to make.  But they will only sell you a complete replacement blower assembly which is ... read more

    Cons: battery life *sigh*
