* 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.

SOURCE: craftsman leaf blower/vacuum

I have a Craftsman and you should have a separate attachment to it. Your motor will turn the same, instead of pushing air out the pipe, you will draw air in through the air intake.

SOURCE: turning the vacuum on.. paramount pb350

That blower vacuum is very easy to operate if you have all the pieces. You need the tubes to blow, you need the larger tub to vacuum and if you want also a bag to attach to the bigger tube. The bigger tube has to be attached at the opposite part of the machine and once you turn it on it will vacuum.

How do you get it to vacuum?

If you got all the parts you will find an adapter that fits over the air intake system for the blower. That is the vacuum source.

Lost my can I chg the setting from vacuum to blowing.

Remove the blower tube. Open up the vent on the bottom of the machine. Insert the vacuum tube (its the large one) into the hole in bottom of blower. Install the collection bag on the outlet where the blower tube was connected. You NOW have a vacuum with a catch bag. The motor on these does not have the capability to use reverse polarity and turn the other direction or anything like that. The vent in the bottom ALWAYS is drawing in AIR. It has to draw in air to be able to blow air, and it has to draw in AIR in order to act as a vacuum.

Remove vaccuum tube. Allow the access door for the vacuum tube to shut all the way. Attatch the blower tube where you had the collection back for the vaccuum attatched. That is it.

Vacuum works, but blower doesn't

Make sure that the vacum houseing on blower is closed all the way and/or snaps shuts to engage for blowing once you have removed all vacum attachments.

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.
