Question about Black & Decker Leaf Hog 12-AMP Electric Blower/Vacuum #BV4000

Open Question

Black & Decker Model BV 4000 Leaf Hog

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.
Good Luck!

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.

How do I change from vaccum to leaf blower?


You haven't stated the model you're referring to.. Here's a link to a Black and Decker blower vac manual, but it might not be your model as I'm having to guess due to lack of info.

Older leafhog don't know how to change over to blower instead of vacuum model Bv2500


Remove the vacuum tube completely from the bottom of the machine and make sure the impeller cover closes completely. Remove the collection bag off of the blower outlet. Now attatch the blower tube to that outlet on the blower. Done.

How do i switch to vacuum...i lost my manual


turn your blower upside down, there should be a slot with a metal thing in it. Stick a Flat head screwdriver in the slot, and push forward or back on the screwdriver, that should open the door on the bottom. Attach your bigger tubes to the bottom of the unit, and the bag on the plower part, and there's your vacuum.
