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 can I change from vacuum mode to blower mode?

Don't know what make you have. Maybe post a picture if you're still struggling. Most electric vac/blowers have a leaver or a dial/knob on the side that you turn in order to go from vac to blower, but mort the time you also have to put extra pipework on too as the blower outlet then becomes the vac inlet.

How do you put it together for mulcher

Undo the spring loaded cover on the very bottom of the machine, insert the vacuum tube for mulching in there and then attatch the catch bag for the mulched material to the outlet where the tube for the blower was...simple as that.

Brand new electric mulching blower/vac : cut out after 10 secs.

Electric motors sometimes have circuit breakers to protect them from overload or overheating. Some reset automatically, some don't. But even if you found and reset a breaker, this shoudn't happen 10 seconds after starting a new unit, unless you sucked a branch into it during those 10 seconds! Take it back to the store for a replacement.

Leaf Blowers Features

* CFM (cubic feet per minute) is the measure of vacuuming power. Ratings fall in the 350 to 600 CFM range. * MPH (miles per hour) measures blowing. Leaf blowers perform at levels from 125 - 210 mph. * Decibels (dB) is the noise rating. * Reduction ratio on mulching blower/vacuums calculates how many units of leaves the mulcher can produce. A 10:1 ratio means that 10 bags of leaves can be reduced to 1 bag of mulch. * Speed settings allow better control when blowing or vacuuming. * Attachments, such as extension tubes for cleaning gutters, are available separately.

Vacuum or Blower?

* Blowers perform the single, simple function of blowing material. * Blower/vacuum combinations combine the blower function with a vacuum feature. Leaves or debris can be directed into an attached bag, which makes this type of unit great for vacuuming leaves from shrubs. An additional mulching feature is available on some leaf blower/vacuums. Mulched lawn debris can be used in compost piles or bagged for disposal. Most convert easily from blowing to vacuuming mode.
