Portland 3-in-1 Electric blower/vacuum/mulcher Review from Harbor Freight

I bought a blower/mulcher today at Harbor Freight. I took it home and tested it out on moving some different materials.

I really love harbor freight, and really dislike the people who down talk them. I think I’ll pick me up one got alot of rain in texas so lots of grass cutting and need to push around the grass clipping

Jim Kopriva says:

Ron Oberleitner says:

Wasting Time says:

The red button doesn’t “switch the motor around” silly. Thats always the air intake and the blower end is the outflow. You’re just putting the collection bag on the outflow and vac tube on the intake. Red button is prob a saftey so motor wont turn on unless tube or cover is on.

Nathan booming says:

very good review video!

J ORTIZ says:

Great video. thanks buddy. I will buy one.

Red Woods says:

Good review but a simple electric pressure washer ($100 at HF) will do a faster, cleaner, more thorough job AND is more useful for siding, windows, cars, concrete, stone. A PW with suction hose will also spray insecticides, soaps, fertilizers, weed killers out 30 feet.


looks like junk

Bill C says:

awesome review, thanks!!

Steven Miller says:

Thanks for the video!

Z Worm says:

Jessica Garcia says:

I just replaced mine back in july after purchasing it in may 2015..It’ll work great for a time or two, then i’tll bomb out. I WENT OUTSIDE JUST THEN WITH MY 4YR OLD TO GET UP LEAVES, IT STOPPED WORKING AGAIN. ARRRRGH!!!! I just called harbor freight back and they referred me to the main company of harbor freight 1-800 number, which they’re closed til monday 7a.m.. i’m on my wy to Home depot to purchaSE A DIFFERENT BLOWER NOW…if you get it, get warranty, because theses only last about 2 yards worth of work, then after you try to use it next time it doesn’t work. HARBOR fREIGHT HAS SOME GOOD BARGAINS SOMETIMES BUT SOME ARE DUDS

Michael Hedden says:

Purchased this last April of 2015. Used the leaf blower only and it was great. This Nov.2016 used the mulch bag 1 time and the zipper broke when emptying bag. No teeth missing and not ripped and not a full bag. Called HF and they don’t repair or have a replacement available to buy. Not worth it for just a blower

Haven says:

Good video dude…now I want one.

Matt Sanchez says:

Vee, thanks for the review because I’m thinking of buying this and your review was helpful.

Jesse Parris says:

Would have liked to have seen the vacuum attachment in action.

shawn h. says:

is the mulcher/chopper made of metal or plastic?

Vu Nguyen says:

I almost bought this last Sunday, but after watching this video, I am definitely going to go back and buy one. Great video!
