Question about Black & Decker Leaf Hog 12-AMP Electric Blower/Vacuum #BV4000
I see the push button on the front bottom of the blower and can take it off exposing the blades. My question is what fits on the bottom of the blower so I can use a vacuum. I know there is a kit that comes with a hose but how does the hose attach to bottom so it will ****. I see know way that the blower can be made to **** out lawn debris. Thank you for your time.

Put the switch in the center off position. That allows you to press the big black button in the front and take the vacuum attachment off. Replace the vacuum with the blower attachment and you should them be able to blow rather than vacuum.

Take out all the screws. Gently remove half of the case. Put a shim in behind the plastic pivot that rocks the switch. I rolled up a 1/2" by 3" piede of duct tape and jammed into the back of the oval socket for the rocker. This pushes the rocker against the switch hard enough so that it rocks the switch properly. Snap the case into place and test the switch before you put the screws back in to make sure it is now working properly.

Try Platt Electrical supply - 800-257-5288 (Platt.com) BLACK & DECKER #89754-01 REPLACEMENT BRUSH. It seems the entire motor head was manufactured by DeWalt and is now obsolete. I don't know if these brushes will fit, but someone there may help.

SOURCE: My Black & Decker Leafblower Leaf Hog BV4000 type 2 quit running suddenly while using. It had run about an hour, was not warm to the touch and is 2 years old. Is thuis a common problem and what might
I have this unit. Mine stopped working today after being warm on the handle the last few uses. I opened the unit up (torx 15) and smelled, then found that a fused wire coming off the motor had burned/melted/separated at a plastic plug right inside the handle. I'm not sure if it had anything to do with it, but in this same compartment of the handle there was an anti-theft strip floating around. I called BandD and they said the BV4000 type ONE has been recalled. http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml07/07005.html
But not the type 2. Even though the failure described for the type 1 is exactly what I found in the type 2.
