I have an older b and d leaf blower , i need to find out what makes the proplellar turn a different way , to go from vacuum to leaf blower ? tks it a b and d bv 2500 type 3

If your blower is not manufactured to be convertible you won't be able to make it into a vacuum. The turbine will not withstand the force of the debris entering it and will be destroyed quickly and could even come apart forcefully injuring you and others around you.
Now if it is designed for vacuuming, the air intake will have a cover that can be opened and allow for the vacuum tube attachment to be connected there. The turbines on these types of blowers are made of materials that can withstand the debris that will be flowing through it and some even have a metal blade that grinds the debris before it enters the turbine then the debris will flow through the outlet tube where the air flows through that blows the leaves and into a bag or filter top that connects to a trash can. Now if this is something that you just have to do and the blower you have isn't a vacuum it can be done but use EXTREME caution. And some pretty major modifications will have to be done to the frame and body of the blower. Some blowers have safety switch's that will prevent the motor or engine from running if any modification is made or if debris is entering the turbine so be prepared for these. I recommend not doing this.

I bought a used b and d bv 2500 type 3 blower , it is hooked up to the vacuum , but i need the leaf blower , so what do i need to do to change it ? tks

There should be an attachment that connects to the air intake that covers the fan turbine preventing any injuries occurring from contact with the blades it also will prevent the motor from turning on if its not installed properly. Then the outlet tube needs to be connected thus converting it into a blower. You mentioned that you purchased it used so it may not have come with these items.

How to convert blower to vac. Toro 850 super blower/vac


Remove the air inlet guard on the bottom by pressing the release and pulling down on the guard. It will tilt off. Remove the blower pipe from the front of the machine by pressing the tab and wiggling it off (It is usually a tighter fit than the air guard). Install the vacuum pipe on the air inlet, where the guard was removed. Install the bag where the air blower pipe was removed.

Best regards, --W/D--

Where do I attach the bag for the vacuum?

When the machine is converted to vacuum mode, the collection bag will go on the machine where the blower tube (long part) is connected for blowing mode.

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.
