markmhowells's review of Black & Decker GW200 Blowervac Vac and Shred


“I have now had two Black and Decker Gw200 Blowervac...”

Written on: 07/12/2004 by markmhowells (1 review written)

Good Points
Blows leaves very well. It is powerful and adjustable.

Bad Points
The Vacuum works well (when it works - see review text). The strap to carry it is thin and uncomfortable and not very well secured to the main unit. The cable saving device (designed to prevent you from pulling the cable out of the back of the unit just doesn't work, the cable keeps coming out of it.

General Comments
I have now had two Black and Decker Gw200 Blowervac Vac and Shred. The first blew up (the motor appeared to overheat) and was replaced by the retailer. The second also suffered a blown motor and was repaired by a black and decker service agent. This second one has now given up. This time the blade designed to mash up leaves has sheared from the engine mount. The entire system is now useless. I have had this thing for about 3 years and only use it 2 or 3 times a year. I have not come across a product which has performed so badly. I would not recommend this to anyone.
