Q: max recommended cord length and gauge ?

by Cliff from Indiana on November 17, 2013

A: Cliff,

If you want to take the unit to its full capacity, you would need a 12 gauge extension cord and you could go 150 feet.

Q: Hi JOE,
Please recommend me a good and light weighted electric leaf blower/vac/mulcher.
thank you very much

by Nicole from Virginia on October 26, 2013

A: Nicole,

I hear plenty of good things about the Greenworks 24072.

Greenworks 24072

It is a powerful 12 amp motor with a high capacity to mulch. You will have to make sure the leaves a more on the dry side for best results. Also, If you are expecting to run the unit for more than 45 minutes at a time, give the unit a bit of a break. Let it cool down for about 20 minutes before finishing up.

Q: Is it a mulcher also?
by Lincoln from Arizona on May 17, 2013

A: Lincoln - yes, the Black and Decker LH5000 does have a mulching function. This unit has an anti-clog metal impeller that helps to prevent clogging when mulching, and it will grind up to 16 bags of leaves down to one bag of mulch

Great While It Lasted
Bought it 2 or 3 years ago. Can't remember for sure. It kicks b... Blowing leaves pine needles, and powder snow off walks decks and cars. The oscillating nozzle is terrifically effective. Motor died last week. Might have lived longer if I had known the brushes needed replacement and could be bought. Now I find it is cheaper to buy a new one than a new power unit. Saving the metal impeller because it makes a great bell, and the blown motor to teach my grand kids how an electric motor works.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Light Weight, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Durability
