The Florabest FLB3000 leaf blower vac

We've tried out the Florabest FLB3000 sold by Lidl to see if this cheap leaf blower vacuum really does make clearing autumn leaves quick and easy.

The Florabest FLB3000 leaf blower vac looks a bit like a small vacuum cleaner and let's you swap between blowing and vacuuming at the flick of a switch.

It's got some great features which make it easy to use including wheels on the end to support it as you suck up the leaves and a shoulder strap to help with the weight when it's in blow mode.

It also has an easy-access hatch that gives you access to the impeller and mulching blades so you can clear any blockages. It currently costs £40 in Lidl.
