Negative points

The McCulloch GBV 345 is equipped with a gasoline time engine. This motor will save you the hassle of power cables. On the other hand, we found that it lacks power. Indeed, it has a power of 750 W. This lack of power is especially noticeable in the suction which takes longer than with other more powerful models such as the TIMBERPRO Thermal Back Leaf Blower. Its price, $163, is still high when the power of the device is taken into account.

Positive points

With a weight of only 4.4 kg, the McCulloch GBV 345 is one of the lightest blowers presented in our test bench. This lightness has a considerable advantage especially when you have a large surface to maintain. The grip will indeed be much less tiring. We also really appreciated the SoftStart function, which makes it very easy to start the device. This start requires much less effort than with other blowers equipped with gasoline engines. Low fuel consumption is also an advantage for this model.

In a few words
