BV5600 is equipped with the 12 amp motor which provide enough power to achieve maximum air speed of 250 mph.

Unit has two 2 speed selections, but since it is electric, finer tuning is easily achievable, but not present. Maybe in some other version …

At lower speed setting, unit can achieve air speed of around 180 mph.

Black and Decker BV5600 operates as 3-in-1 unit: as leaf blower, as leaf vacuum and as mulcher/shredder.

BV5600 is equipped with ‘High Impact Metal Fan’ which prevents clogging when vacuuming and mulching. According to the manufacturer, it ‘can grind up to 16 bags of mulch down to one’. Collection bag can hold around 1.5 bushels (around 50 liters) of debris.

In real life, even with very sharp blades, it is unreal to expect such efficiency, but in the end, this unit will surely do its job properly.

Pivoting nozzle helps loosen leaves and debris for faster clean up during vacuuming. Lower speed is suitable for sensitive areas and surfaces, while higher speed will easily remove fallen leaves and even smaller branches.

Again, continuous variable speed control would be great.

Noise levels during operation are acceptable – around 68 dB. Good for corded electric unit, noisier than cordless units and quieter than gas operated units.

Unit weighs around 8.1 pounds (~3.7 kg) – not the lightest leaf vacuum on the market, but still light enough for easy use. BV5600 comes with 2-year limited warranty against defects in material and/or workmanship. Good for unit which costs around $70 …

Long story short – BV5600 is heavy-duty corded electric garden leaf vacuum suitable for vacuuming leaves, grass clippings, pine needles, twigs and other lawn debris.
