We will outline some FAQ’s that should be useful to you in some small way, all the key features that they can offer plus the main pros and cons to be noted which we came across. Before you buy your Leaf blower, you should take note of the following buying tips
5 Leaf Blower Buying Guide Tips
- Corded Cable Length – if you wish to buy the lower priced corded leaf blower, then measure up the distance you need to work this tool as the cable is 12m long. If your work area goes well beyond 12m, then you will need to invest in an extension cord also which are generally available at affordable prices anyway.
- Variable Speed Functions – this is important when you need to work on flower beds and reducing the blower levels or large heaps of wet leaves where you should increase the power levels. The variable speeds functions are only available on selected models and brands so check this out before you decide.
- Carry Support – Will you need wheel support, hand support or shoulder padded straps? Think about what extras you would like to make the work more enjoyable and easier to do
- Power Level – the maximum wattage on corded models that you should use is 3000W 13 amp, otherwise you will need an industrial socket.
- Warranty – avoid some of the unknown brands in the sector where they offer little to no warranty unlike Hyundai to be fair who offer 3 years which is a great addition to have when they back their products like this

Pros for the HYBV3000E
- This machine is more than just a standard blower – you have the ability to mulch and vacuum as well as blowing so there is great diversity is getting use from this tool – it’s not just for blowing leaves but can be used for clearing decking, vacuuming driveways, mulching leaves and also tidying up cars, machinery or garden equipment. You can even clear snow with this blower during the Winter!
- The design is lightweight, so it is very manageable – plus you have the added support of the small wheels and a padded shoulder strap so working this tool is a hell of lot easier than we first expected.
- It offers a great level of blowing power with its 3000W motor and you can adjust the levels of blow speeds which is a nice addition to have – especially when you need to reduce the blow power around delicate flower beds or if you need to increase the blow speed for larger wet or damp leaf heaps.
- For taller people, this will work a treat as the chute length is adjustable so it can be lowered to 0.7m or extended to 1m which is a nice addition to have and works well. Another advantage also is the fact that there is no assembly needed at all as it ready to go straight from the box.
- You get protection with their 3 year warranty, the size of the collection bag is big enough to cater for larger vacuum jobs and the process of switching from blowing to vacuum is as simple as turning a lever switch.
Cons for the HYBV3000E
- The quality of the collection bag seemed a bit flimsy and could be better – not sure how long it will last but we would suggest using this collection bag very carefully and delicately
- Stock availability especially in peak demand season could be better as this item was actually out of stock at the time of this review and I am unsure when it will be back in stock. Better to reserve the stock as early as possible rather than waiting around as it tends to sell out quite quickly.
- As it is corded, you are limited to a distance of 12m so you will most likely need to invest in an extension cord also.
Price Guide: £40 to £60

Hyundai Cordless Leaf Blower Overview
Even though the cordless leaf Blower from Hyundai will set you back a lot more than the corded 3 in 1 option, it is a really useful tool to have in your shed as you don’t have to worry about messy oils, fuels, ongoing maintenance costs or managing cords or extension cables for that matter. The level of battery power does deplete a lot quicker when on the turbo setting but it does have a lifespan of 1000+ charges, a low level of noise and various speed blowing power settings to choose from as outlined in the diagram below

Section 5: Conclusion and Feedback
Without a shadow of a doubt, the corded Hyundai 3 in 1 Blower was our favourite tool to use in this mix – plus it is the cheapest by a long shot. Overall, we would have to say that the Hyundai Corded 3 in 1 Blower, Vacuum and Mulcher is great value for money with what it can do for you, your garden, patios and driveways. The variable speed blower settings are a great addition to have especially when you need to adjust the level of output and the wheel support along with the shoulder strap make the whole chore of clearing your leaves, garden and driveways that much easier to do.
Apart from being corded, this machine is very impressive and we would have no problem in recommending it to the wider public in the UK. Unlike many other blowers that just blow, this machine can mulch and vacuum up various debris, but you do need to be careful with pebbles or stones lying about to ensure they don’t get stuck in the interior and damage the shredder.
That being said, the power to blow and suck up wet leaves and mulch them was excellent and it made light work of jobs that other branded leaf blowers struggled with. The suction on wet leaves was better than expected and a package like this for less than £60, you can’t go too far wrong, especially when it is backed with a 3 year warranty that they stand over.

The biggest concern we would have though is stock availability as this item is not always available for sale from what we can see so it would be advisable to book as early as you can if you want to get your hands on it.
Have you ever used a Hyundai Leaf Blower yourself in the recent past? Would you recommend either the corded, cordless or the petrol version?
