User reviews

I needed a blower to remove grass cuttings from paving, after I have mowed. I know longer have the energy to mow and then brush up afterwards. I needed it light weight. No cords, easy to get out and use. This is the answer, I am so thrilled with it. I did find it would move damp grass cuttings. As I do not generally mow wet grass, it works perfectly to clear my mess. I also used it to clear up leaves.Just accept it is not as powerful as the big heavy ones, but if like me you buy if for a specific purpose it is great. ONE tip. We found a problem with getting the battery on the charger. Maybe again due to weaker wrists, or senior moment. But a bit of brute force worked. IT does fit the charger. It is the correct charger We thought we had been sent the wrong charger at first,but is was right.
I have experience with both the 18 volt and 24 volt Li-Ion batteries as I already own a cordless Bosch lawnmower, strimmer, drill and hedgecutter. They are all really good tools and this Bosch leaf blower is a great addition to my gardening equipment.I was surprised at how small it was (think hand-held vacuum cleaner) and that the 18 volt battery is used to power the blower - this is the same size battery for use in the Bosch strimmer and drill. Would it be powerful enough? Yes. Good grief, yes, safety glasses are definitely required as this blower creates a mini tornado! I could hardly believe how powerful it was and it put a smile on my face as I blasted a huge a pile of leaves from my lawn into a neat pile. It's a bit like herding sheep but, with a little practice, the slightly angled trunk blows the leaves straight forward. It's so much fun and easy to use so I went looking for other jobs.The next session involved cleaning leaves from the pavement and among a fiddly picket fence. This usually takes a good twenty minutes of sweeping with a brush and picking leaves out by hand from the fence. The Bosch ALB did the job in minutes, and more thoroughly. Even the awkward wet leaves on the pavement got whisked up into a pile ready to be bagged.Sorry to wax so lyrical but I've really bonded with this little machine and keep looking for any excuse to use it. Blowing cobwebs and dust from between the panels in a radiator, check. Cleaning the car by opening all the doors and blowing everything out, check. Drying the car after it's been washed, check. The list could grow!UPDATE DEC 2015 - Still one of my favourite tools and the battery is going strong.
Very very handy and very powerful - few years on and its still going well and powerful. battery seems to stay charged up ok and all in all brilliant.
