It has taken me 3 hours to try to get my JCB-BV26 petrol blower/vac started and so far i have not managed to get it started. To say i am put out is an understatement - i thought a JCB product would be better than this. I have been over the manual several times now, have read all the trouble shooting points and assembly instructions and i have even had a neighbour have a look to see if he could get it running. I have now got sore hands from the pull cord, my garden is still full of leaves... (read more)

The bag on my JCB Garden Vac is not replaceable not even from the manufactures address in the manual. I phoned and was told the replacement bag was £7.96 so sent for two with a cheque on the 17-11-08.
Not having received the bags, I phoned them and they now say they have discontinued this product and the bags are no longer available, Have not received my cheque back either from Pulse Home Products Ltd (read more)

Very Poor Performance. I also have a JCB petrol strimmer which isn't much better. The JCB Garden Vac is less than 4 months old, so I shall be returning it to Makro ASAP.
I'll never buy another JCB tool again. Almost as bad as Nu-Tool rubbish. (read more)

The JCB garden vac is a product that I would happily recommend. It has a 2000w motor which provides enough suction to lift wet leaves which are stuck to the ground.
At first I thought that the collection bag was too small, but the mulching does an excellent job, and it's surprising just how much it holds.
As is usually the case with JCB garden products, the wiring and switches give a look and feel of quality. There were a couple of very minor finishing issues when the package was opened,... (read more)

I just picked up a JCB Garden Vac for £45 off Amazon and I'm pretty chuffed. It does what it's supposed to and beats raking up your leaves a million times over. I've not had it too long so I can't say if it lasts or not but I think it should. Anyway here's its vital statistics:
- 2 speeds
- 2000 watt motor
- 9:1 mulch ratio
- 40 litre collection bag
You just can't argue with all that for £45 can you? (read more)
