Good points

  • Good leaf blowing and vacuuming performance.
  • OK to use overall.
  • Very easy to convert from vacuum to blower by flicking a lever.
  • The controls are very easy to use and the throttle can be locked in the maximum position.
  • Nozzle never blocked during our test.

But

  • High levels of vibration (like most petrol blower vacs).
  • Clearing a blockage requires the removal of vacuum tubes, which is not particularly easy.
  • Heavy.

How we test

Overall score includes:

Performance (70%)
Ease of use (30%)

We evenly spread 5kg of leaf litter (including bark and twigs) over a car park. We then timed how long it took each model to blow the material into a pile, be converted to a vacuum, and then vacuum up the pile.

We checked how easy it was to use the controls. As well as turning them on and off, we assessed how easy it was to do the blower-to-vac conversion and empty the collection bag.

We looked at how easy each model was to use for blowing plus vacuuming. We also scored them for vibration.
