Black and Decker LSW20 Cordless Leaf Blower/Sweeper Review

The Black+Decker LSW20 Sweeper Product Review

You do not have to put up with loud humming just to clean your driveway, garage, or garden. This is something the designers and manufacturers of the Black and Decker cordless blower LSW20 understands very well. The sweeper is made to be not only powerful but quiet while doing its work.

If there are any leaves and stubborn debris on any surface, it will be no match to the scraper built into this sweeper, plus it is aided by a powerful airflow to blow away stubborn debris.

One of the reasons why this product found a place in our good books is that it is easy and comfortable to use. It comes at a weight of only 3.7 pounds. Being lightweight does not, however, compromise its ability to be powerful.

Since the Black and Decker 20v blower uses a MAX Lithium battery, there are no power cords that will be entangling while you work and move around your yard. There are no fumes produced, which makes this product healthy for both the user and the environment.

Black and Decker Cordless Leaf Blower LSW20 Features

The reason why we included the Black and Decker Sweeper among the best leaf blowers is that it comes with some pretty impressive features which we look at below.

  • The power of the sweeper comes from a 20 volt Max Lithium-ion battery
  • Equipped with a built-in scraper that gets rid of leaves stuck to the surface
  • Comes with a 2 year limited warranty which includes the battery and charger
  • Small in size and lightweight


  • Good for someone who is not looking for a heavy duty machine, it is perfect for light cleaning
  • It is designed to be small, light and easy to move around
  • Easy to move around and does its work without making a lot of noise
  • Unlike other rechargeable batteries, its battery is affordable


  • This is certainly not a blower for someone looking to do heavy duty sweeping
  • In full charge, the battery lasts ten to fifteen minutes which can be a pain if you are planning to sweep a large surface


This LSW20 Black and Decker 2ov blower Sweeper is a perfect solution for someone looking for a sweeper to work on light duty work. If you are looking for something that will blow stuff off huge areas, then you should look for something else.

This black and decker leaf blower is battery operated which means that you will never have to worry about electrical cords stopping you from accessing certain areas. The built-in scraper ensures that even when some of the stuff is stuck on the ground you can easily scrape if off.

This scraper works better when the leaves are totally dry. So if you want to get the best from this product, you will have to wait for the surface to be completely dry.

This machine is lightweight and will not interfere with your balance. After using it, you will never feel as if you were carrying the whole world on your shoulders.


In order for us to see how this sweeper compares to other products in its class, we looked at some products that you could look at if you wanted to match. We noticed the Best Partner BLG7000 Corded Blower.

The first thing you become aware of when you compare these two is that the Best Partner blower has a cord where the Black + Decker LSW20 is operated using a battery.

If you are looking for a blower that will keep sweeping for extended periods of time, you may want to consider an electric leaf blower.

You could also check out the The Dewalt DCBL720P1 Brushless Blower. If you are working within a budget then you may find the Dewalt blower more expensive. Of course, we always agree that you get what you pay for.

With this particular blower, you can expect run times that are longer and more durability than the cheaper competition. You will, however, have to put up with a machine that is a bit noisy.


After looking at all the features of the Black and Decker LSW20 Sweeper we arrived at the conclusion that this is a product that will be suitable only for someone who wants to do light cleaning on a surface that is hard.

If you are looking do heavy duty work, you may want to go with something much bigger. We checked the ergonomics and we are convinced that they are good.

The other thing you need to keep in mind when you are buying this Black and Decker cordless leaf blower is that it is a battery operated leaf blower. While it takes a few hours for the battery to recharge, you may be disappointed that it lasts only about twenty minutes on each charge. This can be frustrating to someone who wants to do the blowing for extended periods of time. But, if you have a smaller area to clean, it might be just what you need.

If you are not planning to use the blower for more than 20 minutes at a time, then this Black and Decker 20v blower is certainly a recommended product.
