Testing of Vacuum Blower GW3030

The Black & Decker GW3030 is a device appreciated for its practicality and power. With nearly 3000 W under the hood, this vacuum blower which also acts as a shredder, removes all leaves, even wet ones. Equipped with 2 tubes, it saved us from back pain by preventing us from bending down to effectively blow out the dead leaves. We started by testing the blower function by making piles of leaves. In a few minutes, there’s a neat little mountain.

We then used vacuuming and crushing to get rid of the leaves and reduce them to small pieces that could be used as compost. The debris was easily absorbed by the GW3030 and stored in the bag. After a few passes, the garden was cleared of dead leaves and half of the bag was not even filled yet. Thanks to an integrated zip, it is very easy to empty the bag when it is full. A well-thought-out function that will help you to do a clean job in your garden.
The GW3030 is an efficient model designed for ease of use. Thanks to a handle designed to fit perfectly in the hand and the support strap, carrying this device weighing almost 5 kg is child’s play. When one of our arms got tired, we just had to move the machine to the side to be able to continue blowing the leaves. It is equipped with a sturdy and very resistant metal turbine.

The latter allows it to absorb different types of plant debris without destroying the engine. The Black & Decker GW3030 blower also has a variable speed drive which gives it great flexibility. With a single rotation it is possible to adjust the power of the air flow or suction to suit dry or wet leaves.

Powered by electricity, the GW3030 is powered by a mains plug. Moving through the garden is made easier by the 2 m extension that can be extended with a standard extension. The vacuum blower-blower is continuously powered, allowing you to work without having to recharge the unit. It is also supplied with a concentrator tip. Thanks to him, we were able to blow all the leaves present on a large surface in a few seconds. Small flat: the Black & Decker GW3030 is quite noisy. Due to its high power, it emits noise that we are not used to and we recommend the use of noise-cancelling headphones to avoid hearing damage (see our article on this subject).
