  • Impressive Leaf Vacuum

    Nov 16, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Vacuum power, optional leaf collection system, low noise and overall design.
    Cons: Adapter hose connector, rubbery switch.

    Summary: We took a chance and bought this Black & Decker BV4000 since there were limited reviews we could find on it. We have been very happy with it. Operation: The machine is of a decent size but the weight is very reasonable and the handles are big and ... read more

  • Leaf Collection System Design Problem

    Oct 25, 2013 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Strong motor, solid construction.
    Cons: Poor leaf collection system design.

    Summary: I just purchased this unit.  Everything has assembled as instructed except there is no instruction whatsoever of how the hose for the leaf collection system (LCS) secures to the mesh container cover.  There is simply a small round hole in the ... read more

  • Not a bad machine overall (BV 4000)

    May 26, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good blowing power - Average vacuum power for it's size.
    Cons: Could use clearer instructions for bag installation.

    Summary: I bought this leaf hog blower to replace the previous B&D leaf hog (BV2500, type 3). The BV4000 works fine as a blower. It has two speed settings and claims to generate a wind speed of 230 mph. As a vacuum, it works similarly to the BV2500 as far as ... read more

  • Raking is faster for pine needles.

    Mar 1, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to change from blower to vacuum
    Cons: Raking is faster for needles

    Summary: We have pine trees that drop lots of pine cones and needles. Black and Decker's web site says the BV4000 is ideal for pine needles. Its box says it will pick up pine cones. Hence, we decided to give the Leaf Hog BV4000 a try. The suction is ... read more

  • Powerful blower, so-so vac

    Oct 30, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: powerful blower, clog resistant, large opening for vacuuming, easy switch from blower to vac
    Cons: cumbersome to use close to the body, poor design for cord release on adapter

    Summary: I have a fairly large 60 X 120 lot and wanted a blower/vac/mulcher to provide food and mulch for my garden area. Did not want the extra noise and maintenance with a gas blower/vac and chose the Black & Decker Leaf Hog at Lowes for $99. I also picked up ... read more

  • Best on the Market

    Dec 13, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Vortex anti-clogging system. Weight, power, Cord locking system, the height of the tubes
    Cons: Trying to empty the bag. The hole is much narrower than the entire bag

    Summary: To keep my yard clean is not a battle, it's an ongoing war. It was a losing war until I found the latest edition LeafHog by B&D. Previously, I had been using a Weedeater brand combo system that was just simply not getting the job done with two of ... read more

  • Love the leaf hog

    Nov 22, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent suction, price performance, excellent snap fit engineering, high tech plastic, blower, multi speed
    Cons: More power coupled with a bigger mouth would up the "hogging" bandwidth.

    Summary: I bought this product because we have six huge shade trees. These trees have so many leaves that we rarely have to use the AC in summer, and we live inland northern CA, which is desert like. Put another way, we have a dreaded fall leaf cleanup. I love ... read more

  • This Leaf Hog is a Pig

    Sep 11, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Ball-bearing motor, easy conversion from blower to vacuum. Optional Trash Can Leaf Collection System.
    Cons: Weak vacuuming suction, unwieldy collection bag, average blowing power.

    Summary: Two years ago, when I bought a Bl ack and Decker BV2500 Leaf Hog, I gave the blower/vac a good review because of its ease of use, strong blowing and suction, and its ability to collect leaves into a trash can using the ... read more

  • defective on/off switch

    Jan 3, 2009 by
    Not rated yet
    Pros: like the blower to vacuum option
    Cons: don't like like IT WAS MADE TO BE A "THROWAWAY " 

    Summary: After about 2 years the on/off switch went bad . I could not locate an exact replacement . after about 2 hours of modification I was able to replace it . This item (the switch) should last for many years and at the least B&D should offer a ... read more

  • Good Design - Horrible Implementation

    Dec 23, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Good suction power.
    Cons: Flimsy collection bag attachment negates any value.

    Summary: I selected this model because I had problems with the zippers on other leaf blower bags, and thought (and still do) the large collection basket was a great idea. However, the product description forgot to mention the auto-bag filling sensor - which is ... read more

  • Worst Collection Bag Design EVER!

    Jun 11, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Good power level, blower works great, suction and mulching power are all good. Easy conversion.
    Cons: Horrible bag attachment design -- worst possible design ever.

    Summary: Overall, the power of this blower vac is great. I have no complaints about the ease of use, switching between blower and vac, etc. The power selector sometimes gets nudged during use, but that's a minor nuisance. The one thing that drives me nuts is the ... read more

  • Dead After 5 Bags of Leaves

    Nov 27, 2004 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Reasonably powerful. Collection bag quite convenient (until it falls off in mid-vacuum).
    Cons: Plastic impeller wears easily. Collection bag not securely attached. Vacuum tube clogs on wet leaves.

    Summary: After vacuuming 5 bags of wet leaves, the collection bag refused to stay on. The manager at Home Depot refused to take it back, saying that I shouldn't have used it on wet leaves. I said "rain happens", and left him with the blower--we'll see if I ... read more

  • BV 4000

    Nov 10, 2004 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Very Powerful Easy of switching from blowing to vacuming. Cord lock, mulches like crazy.
    Cons: Corded - only if you have a very large yard or a lot of obstacles.

    Summary: Did all the research and ended on the B&D BV4000. liked the Toro super blower, however all the reviews have people complaining about breaking the impeller (thin plastic, rounded blades) and trying to get a replacement from the dealer. The B&D BV4000 ... read more
