The Hyundai HYBV3000E is a 3-in-1 Leaf blower, Vacuum and Mulcher that weighs only 3.3kg and is used for tidying up the garden throughout the year. The HYBV3000E has a powerful 3000W motor that has variable speeds between 8,000 and 14,000 rpm and a telescopic chute that extends from 70cm to 100cm reducing storage space. The built in mulching facility reduces the foliage and grass by ratio of 1/10th of its original size making it suitable for composting.
I have tried and tested many leaf blowers and garden vacuums over the years and was looking to upgrade my old, large and heavy Spear and Jackson vacuum. The new Hyundai HYBV3000E looked on paper to be the perfect replacement with all the features I was looking for in a more portable and powerful leaf blower.
Did this Hyundai HYBV3000E leaf blower live up to my expectations? In this review I will be looking at all the features and functions and sharing with you the good and not so good aspects of this 3-in-1 blower, vacuum and mulcher from Hyundai. By the end of this review you will know if this is the right make and model for you and your garden.
Why the Hyundai HYBV3000E?
Before we take a closer look at this leaf blower it would be good to understand what I was looking for in a leaf blower and why it meets my personal requirements. I don’t have a huge garden but have large trees at the end that shed their leaves starting in early October. I decided a corded leaf blower would provide the power I required with a minimum cable length of 10 metres to allow me to cover the whole garden. The reason I did not choose a petrol leaf blower is due to requiring maintenance and producing more noise and fumes that my neighbours would not appreciate on a Sunday morning. I also ruled out a battery leaf blower due to them costing significantly more and having reduced power/run time for little gain. I therefore decided a corded leaf blower would be the best option to meet my requirements.
I was looking for a light weight leaf blower that has the added ability to vacuum and mulch, that is well balanced and takes up as little storage space as possible. It needs to be able to easily blow wet and dry leaves and debris into a pile and then allow me to vacuum up quickly to make my garden clean, tidy and free from leaves. The mulching function needs to reduce the volume of leaves and debris in the collection bag by a substantial amount so it is suitable for composting.
Let’s take a closer look at the details of this promising leaf blower from Hyundai and whether or not it meets my requirements detailed above.
Video Review of the Hyundai HYBV3000E
To give you a visual representation and to see my video review of the Hyundai HYBV3000E please watch the video below:
- 3-in-1 Leaf Blower, Vacuum and Mulcher
- Motor speed: 8,000-14,000 rpm
- 45L grass collection bag
- Variable airspeed
- Telescopic chute – 9 Position 70cm – 100cm
- Mulching 1/10th
- 12M cable
The Hyundai HYBV3000E has a powerful 3000W motor that is more than adequate to tackle the toughest conditions fast and efficiently. The motor speed can be adjusted between 8,000 and 14,000 rpm depending on the conditions allowing the airspeed to be controlled between 62 and 186mph. How does this compare with other makes of blowers? Actually very well – the Bosch ALS 2500 has only a 2500W motor but does produce a similar maximum airflow of around 180mph.
Are there more powerful corded leaf blowers available? Not really – this Hyundai HYBV3000E with a 3000W motor and variable airspeed is as good as it gets in the consumer market, so well done to Hyundai for that.
If you do need more power you should be looking at a petrol powered leaf blower.
Hyundai do have a very versatile petrol leaf blower/vacuum called the Hyundai HYB5200 52cc 2-Stroke Backpack Petrol Leaf Blower and a battery leaf blower called the Hyundai HYB60LI 60v Lithium-ion Battery Leaf Blower.
The Hyundai HYBV3000E is a corded leaf blower and comes with a very respectable 12 metre cable that is suitable for small to medium sized gardens. The cable is good quality and and can be extended if needed. Always use a Socket RCD Safety Adaptor when using any corded garden tools.
The Hyundai HYBV3000E has an ergonomic design complete with anti-vibration technology and is portable enough to allow it to be easily manoeuvred around the garden. This is made easier by the shoulder strap that is padded and two front wheels that takes the weight of this leaf blower.
The chute adjustment is a nice touch from Hyundai and allows the chute to be adjusted in 9 varying lengths from 70cm to 100cm, this compares well with other makes of leaf blower. I was surprised just how small the box was when the postman delivered this Hyundai leaf blower, this is down to the chute adjustment that significantly reduces the storage space for this Hyundai HYBV3000E.
Remember this leaf blower weighs only 3.3kg and I hope you can see from my video just how easy and well balanced this leaf blower is and compares favourably with the likes of the Bosch ALS 2500 that weighs 4.4 kg when in vacuuming mode.
The quality seems to be as good as the Bosch leaf blowers and Hyundai back this up with a respectable 3 year warranty.
Mulching & Shredding
The Hyundai HYBV3000E does have a mulching and shredding function that reduces the debris collected by 1/10th. Does this make the Hyundai better than its competitors? Well no not really, most leaf blowers will have this facility and most will mulch at the 10-1 ratio and some even achieve 16-1. I have shown in my video just how well this Hyundai mulches and shreds the collected debris making it suitable for composting.
The collection bag on the Hyundai HYBV3000E has a respectable 45 litre capacity, this is the standard size for a leaf blower of this class. The zip on the collection bag opens easily and empties with no problems. The opening could have been a little larger, such as that on the Bosch ALS 2500 that opens completely around the entire collection bag.

The Hyundai HYBV3000E is as practical as any leaf blower currently available in this price range and can not be faulted in that respect.
