Look at the photo below. Then very seriously consider buying this different model in the link below. For one thing alone, you can get the vacuum attachment to suck up leaves or other things for only an extra $18. Believe me, that's a bargain to get a far superior blower plus a valuable vacuum attachment versus just an inferior blower. They are both 40 Volt Lithium Battery powered and made by Black & Decker.

I own the predecessor 36 Volt version in the link above and I use it weekly from about February through November here in the Houston, Texas area where we have a much longer growing season. Yes, I wish I had the newer 40 Volt version above instead, but bad timing. However, I like my 36 Volt version so much that I just bought a used 36 battery for $52 on eBay a few minutes ago for insurance just in case the 36 Volt battery ever fails. And so far it shows not the slightest indication it has lost much, if any power, in the multiple years I've used it. My 36 Volt version is no longer made, but I'm still using it. And after all the years I've used it the battery has rarely ever depleted while I was using it - depended mostly upon how big a mess I make while mowing and edging.
Buy this one instead.
BLACK+DECKER LSWV36 40V Lithium Ion Sweeper/Vac
The first thing I noticed is this 40 Volt blower snout or air tunnel is much shorter than the one I have. Now I will agree it has a lot of wind blowing energy, but remember Newton's Law: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. It has quite a kick when you first turn it on. However, your hand has to push forward the entire time you are using it to counteract the high velocity air blowing out of that funnel. Think of pushing against a miniature jet engine. However, this would have been okay if they hadn't changed the handle design.
This sweeper doesn't have good ergonomics. They made it to be flat to fit into a small shipping box. It is much more tiring to use this blower than the model above. You don't realize it at first, but you will if you use it long enough. Now look at the other handle design. The handle balances perfectly in your hand with a far better angle to fit into your hand naturally. It's perfect resulting in no hand or wrist fatigue. I believe that mechanical engineer put some actual thought into the handle design - not just something to grab onto like this one being reviewed. You can only appreciate this if you own both of them to compare - like I do.
Also, I don't think there's such a huge benefit for this model's increased air velocity because of the shortened air tunnel. This model has a short 18.75 inch black air blower tunnel versus the 24 inch air tunnel of the prior model. The prior model hangs only a few inches off of the floor for me and the new model hangs about 9 inches from the floor. Well, you would say that all depends upon how tall you are. I'm 6' 1" in shoes and my wife is 5' 3" tall in shoes (not heels). So here's the difference. For my height and arm length, the older model hangs naturally 4 inches closer to the ground compared to this new 40 Volt model. Of course, we would need a wind tunnel and smoke to see how the air disperses, but I believe this short one loses that air velocity advantage before it strikes the floor. I strongly having the end of the sweeper closer to the ground than air exiting 9 inches above my driveway. They did that for a reason in the prior model in the link above. Design de-evolution.
This 40 Volt Model: 9" off the floor for me at the air exit.
The longer old 36" Model: 5" off the floor for me at the air exit - a considerable difference.
This 40 Volt Model: 7" off the floor for her at the air exit.
The longer old 36" Model: 8½" off the floor for her at the air exit
The decision is yours to make. I've written my opinion and I own both of them. They are both Black & Decker products. I have about every 20 Volt Black and Decker product they make. I have 11 or 12 batteries and an equal number of tools from a chain saw to several drills. I am a strong Black & Decker advocate and I really like their products a lot. But when you have a comparison, the newer model is not always an improvement. This one was only developed to make more profit, which would have been okay if it performed better than the other model.
Think of the escalator design in a shopping mall. The escalator mechanical design has changed only a trivial amount in 120 years. He got it right from the very beginning - a brilliant engineer. The motors have been improved, but the original design remains intact after more than a century. Now that's superb engineering.
I have various gas and electric blowers, but this is my first cordless blower. I wasn't expecting a ton of power, and I was right. This is very light duty. It's perfect for my patio, so I can sweep off the leaves and whatnot without having to deal with cords or gasoline. It is so handy for those quick, easy jobs like stairs, patios and porches.
What it isn't good for is the heavier duty stuff. This will not clean off your driveway or blow leaves off of your lawn. It is NOT a blower. It is a sweeper, The short air tunnel is just the right height for me - I am 5'5", but it is too short for my husband - he finds it too uncomfortable for long term use (he is 6').
I prefer a charging holder (where you insert the tool into a wall-mounted or floor charger and the tool charges), but this comes with a removable battery that you insert into a corded charger. Not a deal-breaker, but not my favorite method. On the bright side, the battery removes much, much easier than other Black and Decker cordless tools that I have. I don't have to fight it (and inevitably break a nail).
I wish this was a bit more powerful, it really is quite gutless, but for a smooth surface like cement or tile, it can definitely push the leaves and seed pods off. Unfortunately, I doubt many people are in the market for a tool that can do light sweeping and not much else when you can spend just a bit more and get a genuinely powerful tool that can do it all.
The funnel on the "sweeper" is too short for most people in any event because the machine simply does not have the "oomph" to push anything but the lightest of objects that is more than a few inches from the end of the funnel. In other words, if you are taller than, say, five and a half feet the end of the funnel will be to far away from the ground to really be able to to anything. I think this is why in the manufacturer's photos for this unit, the shorter person, a women, is depicted apparently with the machine on and little pieces of something seem to be in motion; on the other hand, the taller person, a man is depicted holding the machine but the end of the funnel is maybe 2-3 feet away from the leaves, or whatever, and nothing is moving.
In addition, the placement of the handle on the machine makes it awkward to use for any length of time but does force you to essentially point the funnel almost straight down at the ground because, ironically enough, the machine is too weak to have any real sweeping effect as you use it.
If you need just a very light sweeper for very light use, this might be a good purchase, especially if you can use the battery, which alone sells for about 80% of the suggested purchase price of the machine, on something else. The charging unit that comes with the machine by itself runs at about 50% of the suggested purchase price of the machine but as it is not a quick charger it has little utility unless you just use this machine for small jobs.
