At last - A Vac Mulcher that does Big Leaves!

I've had quite a few garden Vac/Mulcher's but none of them have been fit for purpose until this unit. The most expensive was a Flymo and the cheapest (and worst) an Aldi special. This Ozito BLV-2402 was $99 with a 3 year warranty and has some excellent and unusual features including a metal fan blade with an easy access clear side cover to clean it, A double wall bag with a fine dust filter inner, Big smooth bore suction inlet tube and a decent shoulder strap. The really big feature is it sucks and mulches large leaves quickly and without clogging which no other unit I've tried could do in practice. It is noisy enough to require hearing protection but not as loud as most I've tried while not particularly heavy and does the job efficiently. It's the first one I've tried that works well enough that it's not a complete misery to use.
Assembly requires some force to connect the tube to the motor but is otherwise unremarkable and straightforward. I am not too worried about the durability as a Bunnings 3 year warranty means easy replacement if it dies so long as I have the receipt. The mulching reduction ratio is not always 10/1 but seems much better than the other plastic bladed units I've tried, it's certainly a big reduction. If you are dealing with large leaves leave the Patio Extension off as it will clog instantly but otherwise does a decent job with sand and dirt. It works as a blower but it is not it's main use - more to manoeuvre the leaves into a pile so they can be more easily sucked up.
Overall this is the first Vac/Mulcher that I can recommend without reservation, for $99 it is good value and not aggravating to use. It does not clog in normal use and does a decent job of keeping the dust under control while picking up large leaves at a rapid rate. I would highly recommend this if you are looking for a mains Garden Blower/Vac with Mulching, it does what it says on the box.

Purchased in May 2019 at Bunnings Warehouse for $99.00.

Questions & Answers

Ozito 2400W Electric Blower Vacuum-Mulcher BLV-2403 have metal blades
1 answer
Yes it has metal blades, it’s solidly made and has a clear polycarbonate cover that lets you clean the blower section easily if was needed. It has never clogged on mine but it is a good feature.

If it sucks up pebbles or small rocks does it damage it

It has a fairly strong diecast metal blade and generally it will deal well with the size of stuff it sucks up. Rocks are heavy enough they will stay on the ground. I have used it on garden beds covered in around 1-½ cm granite chips with no problems at all. If you keep the receipt Bunnings give a 3 year replacement guarantee so there is not much risk. it has a better made metal impeller than one I tried that was three times the price.Thanks roger
