The power could be better. The tube gets jammed with big leaves. They should have designed the tube with a reverse taper (larger at the inlet end than at the turbine end). I wouldn't use it for big jobs.

I expected more from this. Was super exited when it arrived as it was fall and leaves were everywhere. It blows great, but sucks at sucking up leaves.

Video Review of the Black and Decker 36V Cordless Sweeper and Vac March 29 2013
By CKE - Published on
Vine Customer Review of Free Product
In some ways I am a sucker for anything that is rechargeable... I am a fan of the Greenworks product line (mowers, trimmers, clippers, and etc), I own a series of Makita lithium ion tools (including their handy little blower/sweeper), and I even drive a rechargeable car (a Chevy Volt... which I love) so I was excited to try the new Black & Decker 36V Lithium ion sweeper and Vac. I was a bit skeptical of the Black & Decker brand because I have seen spotty performance/quality in some of their other products, but that does not seem to be the case here!

One thing to remember is to maintain your expectations. the Black & Decker Sweeper and Vac is not a full scale blower and vacuum and is not up to the tasks for blowing and vacuuming up wet leaves from your yard. That is not the intent of the Black & Decker Sweeper and vac... it is designed for smaller jobs primarily on hard surfaces. When you need to tackle large jobs in your yard you will likely need a gas powered blower/vac.


- Feature a 36V - 1.3aH battery -Run time is roughly 15 minutes or so

- Takes 75 minutes to charge the battery completely - the battery does feature a charge indicator. I also recommend that you not leave you battery on the charger for extended period (over a couple of hours). One more precaution... never run the battery dead place the battery back on the charger once you feel the battery power depleting.

- Producing wind speeds up to 120 mph

- 6 speed settings

- Switches from sweeper to vacuum in less than 2 minutes

- Lightweight - as a sweeper it weighs about 5lbs

- In vacuum mode the unit will mulch the leaves

- In vacuum mode wet leaves have a tendency to stick in the shoot which causes a pretty big drop in vacuuming power.

- It would be nice if the vacuum bag was about 50% larger - I find myself emptying the bag every few minutes.

- As a whole I think the sweeper mode is more functional than the vac. The sweeper has plenty of power for blowing off all hard surfaces where as the vacuum does ok, but it is best for smaller types of jobs.

Final Verdict - As long as you manage your expectations the Black & Decker 36V lithium ion sweeper and vac is very handy for jobs on hard surfaces. If you are looking for something to vacuum up leaves on a 1 acre piece of property... you will be disappointed.

Excellent light duty sweeper & vac March 26 2013
By Wayne - Published on
Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I've been using my trusty Toro 51599 Ultra 12 amp Variable-Speed Electric Blower/Vacuum with Metal Impeller for a while now and it's been working great. But as with all corded tools... you have a cord. My concern with going cordless was that they wouldn't be powerful enough to get the job done. So let's see how the B&D LSWV36 handled the job.


Out of the box you have have the sweeper itself, the battery with charger, a bag with a tube attached, and 4 separate tubes. They basically pair off and snap into each other. One is for use in Vac mode, and the other for Sweeping. Connecting them together required quite a bit of force, but fortunately this is a one-time task for initial assembly only.

That's really about it for "assembly." I found that it was rather simple to figure out how it goes to together and switch between vac/sweeper mode. It also comes with plenty of instructions if you like to read, but the picture on box is probably enough. :)


The unit itself is surprisingly compact and light weight. Even with the battery and sweeper attachment, I could easily walk around using it single handed. Speaking of holding it, the air-intake is on the left side of the device. So if you have loose clothing or allow it to get too close to you, you'll find that it frequently wants to stick to you.

Solution... use it with your left hand. :)

I'd prefer the intake to be on the bottom as with my Toro, but it's a minor issue. When in vac mode that's also not an issue since the tube will be in the way. As expected, it does weigh a bit more when in Vac mode, but B&D was thoughtful enough to put an extra handle towards the front for when it gets full of leaves.

Otherwise there is a switch on the top to turn it on/off as well as a dial towards the back to adjust power. These things are usually rather basic and this one is no exception.


When I turned it on the first thing I noticed was that it definitely quieter... and yes, less powerful than my corded Toro. The Toro has so much power it'll give you a bit of a jolt and move back due to the motor kicking in and air pressure. Once again, that was somewhat expected given the lower power output.

But how did it do in real-world use? Rather well, actually. I was able to "sweep" my garage, porch, drive-way, and back porch all on a single charge (with plenty to go). It makes up for less power by having a narrower tube to funnel the air. As a result, there is less sweeping area, but sufficient air flow to get the job done.

So while I did find it took just a bit longer to accomplish this regular task vs. using my Toro, I didn't mind. Reason? The light weight combined with less noise and NO WIRES were more than enough for me to pick a winner for my sweeper of choice.

As for the Vac mode, it worked as expected. Vacuuming up the pile of leaves I raked up worked just fine. It had plenty of suction to clean up all the leaves. Although when I moved onto bigger stuff, it had issues with larger twigs from bush trimming, as they ended up getting clogged. Otherwise my only other concern here is the plastic impeller that's being used. I know some more powerful wired blowers have had issues with those breaking in the past. It's possible the lower power might negate that issue, but only time will tell.

+ Light Weight
+ Compact Design
+ Relatively Low Noise
+ Fast Charging Time (1-2 hours)
+ Long running time (~30 min or so)
+ Sweeping & Vac modes

+ Plastic Impeller
+ Limited to light-duty work
+ Air intake on the side
+ Somewhat pricey


I think if you use this for what it's intended, which is light-duty yard work, you'll find that it works beautifully. Yes, I'd love for it to essentially be a cordless version of my more powerful Toro. But I don't think that's very practical. :) All things considered, the Pro's easily outweigh the minor "cons" enough to give it 5 stars and considered highly recommended.

A Little Skeptical so far.... April 1 2013
By mikmax1 - Published on
This thing is Kinda expensive. But it also gives me an extra Battery for my Trimmer as well, which I have not used yet (Xmas present and not mowing season yet) Batteries are over 60 bucks, so a common battery is a plus.

B & D uses 36 volt batteries on their cordless mowers (Not exacty the same battery), so I had high hopes, esp for lasting a while. Comes with Quick Smart Charger.

I used it about 15 min on the charge it was shipped with. It has a dial to dial down the power, which would make it last longer. I ran Wide Open.

It says it blows 120mph. Seems a little light to me, but I am used to my 180mph Toro Corded. This B&D will blow dry leaves off deck, dust, grass, etc. Has more trouble blowing leaves out of a tough spirea bush. When you read the fine print on the box, it says "Hard Surface" sweeper. I would is not going to be effective in Grass for heavy leaves.

I just hope it will blow water off my Garage floor, or off the deck after a rain.

It has a vacuum attachment. It seems to suck better than it blows...makes for one heck of a DustBuster. Easy to handle. I got leaves out of the corners of deck and garage really easy. The Impeller is plastic, so it can break and chip and it warns about picking up large sticks, twigs, or non-orgnaic material. I ran across a few small marble-sized peices of mulch. It would not pick them up....they just fell back out when I shut the motor off. Converting from Blower to Vac is easy.

As others mentioned, you have to hold it away from your body, or use left handed because the Intake sucks up against your leg.

A little skeptical right now. But, it WILL clear dry grass off Sidewalk or Driveway quite well and have enough run-time. I'll think I WILL USE for what it is intended to be...a Dry/Hard Surface Sweeper...and I don't have to do a Two-Stroke Gas/Start or undwind and drag around a cord. No way will it do big-time leaves. Esp Wet.

Edit 4/9/13: I often use my 180mph Toro (corded) to clear beaded water off my Deck, Lawn furniture and also out of my finished garage floor (after a hosing out). This B & D 36 Volt simply will not do that. It moves the water around a bit and spreads it out, but just does not have the power to strip the water off the surface.

One thing I did use it for was to blow excess fertilizer from sidewalks and driveways. But on the other hand, had I not had it, I probably would not have bothered to clean it up at all if I had to drag out a 100 foot cord.

I would say I am getting decent longevity out of it...20 minutes. I never dial it down. It needs to run wide open unless you are doing something delicate.

Well... March 2 2014

Verified Purchase
I first purchased the 36 volt weed wacker by b and d and was thrilled with the quality and durability of the product. So, that leads me to this purchase of this unit. Which because the products are both 36 volt batteries i figured this would be a great buy. To my surprise it is like night and day between the two products. the weed wacker has what seems to be unlimited power (for a cordless machine) and a relatively long run time, Then there is the gutless and battery hogging blower/vacuum and there really isn't anything else to say other than for a hundred to hundred and fifty dollars this blower needs pulled off warehouse/store shelves and sent back to the engineering department for a complete redesign.

Unless you are looking for an well overpriced weak blower that eats batteries move onto another product or wait for b and d engineers to actually test this product and make it at least semi comparable to the 32 volt weed wacker.

Also, I unfortunately based this purchase off the 90+ 5 star reviews, I have no idea why anyone would decide this deserves that kind of rating. I have had the 12 volt units and that is what this feels like power wise. And also, this unit currently is described as a 40 volt unit amazon may want to check this since the pictures even show a 36 volt battery!

inadequate air velocity Sept. 14 2013
By R. R. - Published on
Verified Purchase
As the owner of both a gas-powered backpack blower and a corded blower, I hoped from the reviews that this would be a convenient tool for more regularly blowing decks and sidewalks. My heart sank the first time I used it. It has a fraction of the air velocity of my other blowers and so much more time was required to blow the leaves. It couldn't budge acorns. It was even less effective against leaves on grass. I returned the blower for a refund after 10 minutes of use. If you have substantial hard surfaces (decks, patios, walkways) or grass to clear, this blower may well prove inadequate, as it was for me.
