The Sun Joe lawn equipment company manufactures some of the most reliable combination blower/vacuums on the market. Sun Joe has a series of high-quality blowers, including some excellent 3 in 1 combination models. They offer a model with the perfect size and style to handle whatever job you need. Here are the seven best Sun Joe Blower 3 in 1 combination blower/vacuums, from most affordable to the most expensive one.

1: Sun Joe 3-in-1 Electric Blower, Vacuum, Mulcher SBJ603E

Sun Joe blower 3 in 1, model # SBJ603E has the same attachment package as the previous model. However, the SBJ603E packs an extra amp of power into the motor. This 13-amp version ups the wind velocity to 240 mph, plus the bag for the vacuum system is a gallon larger.

The increase in power also churns the mulching impeller at a higher speed, increasing the debris reduction rate by 20 percent. With the larger bag and reduced size of the mulch, you can tackle larger vacuum jobs with this model. Both models similar features, so it’s all about preference.

Price: $66-$68.

For versatility and affordability, the Sun Joe Blower 3 in 1 electric model SBJ604E is a perfect choice. Equipped with a powerful 12-amp motor, this blower packs the punch to handle moderate to tough yard jobs. It converts in an instant from a 200 mph blower to a mulcher vacuum, which reduces yard waste at a rate of 10 to 1.

The SBJ604E is quiet and efficient, plus easy for anyone to handle since it weighs less than 12 pounds. There are six adjustable speeds for work flexibility. Sun Joe Blower 3 in 1 designers had the foresight to put an easy-maneuver wheel at the end of the vacuum tube. This reduces wear and tear on your back, allowing you to knock off difficult projects without wearing yourself out.

The only con of an electric Sun Joe 3 and 1 blower is the need for an electrical cord. You might feel that a cord attached to your blower/vacuum is going to present a problem. Sun Joe has an answer for that problem as well, with battery powered models. Priced at under $100, this is an inexpensive way to corral the yard debris on your property.

Price: $80-$90 (depending on the Amazon supplier).

3: Sun Joe 13-Amp High-Performance Variable-Speed SBJ702E

Sun Joe blower 3 in 1 options have a series of three high-performance electric models. The first is the 13-Amp, model # SBJ702E. This is the smallest of the high-performance triple threat models, which come with a complete blower/vacuum accessories and a metal impeller to reduce yard waste to finely chopped mulch.

The vacuum tube has the wheel design for easier use and comes with a brush head at the end to really get into the ground on dirt surfaces. This smaller model produces a 200 mph wind velocity, reduces yard waste at a rate of 15 to 1, with a 12-gallon collection bag.

The odd disadvantage of the SBJ702E is that it costs $10 more than the next most powerful high-performance model. All the attachments and accessories are the same. However, the higher price seems to be one of the few unappealing aspects this particular Sun Joe blower 3 in 1 model.

4: Sun Joe 14-Amp High-Performance Variable-Speed SBJ605E

With just one more amp of power, the SBJ605E ramps up the wind velocity on the blower by 25 percent. This model has a wind force rating of up to 250 mph. It has the same size collection bag, but the increase in power also improves the debris reduction rate to 16 to 1.

Another improvement in this larger amp model is an aluminum alloy impeller. This feature creates an even better mulching system to improve durability. Owner reviews indicate this model vacuumed up numerous large piles of Sycamore tree leaves, pulverizing them into one tidy bag of mulch.

The extra amp, which ups the wind velocity and debris reduction rating, actually costs $10 less than the smaller version. Both have 6-speed settings for versatility and like all the Sun Joe blower 3 in 1 models, come with a full 2-year warranty.

If you want to add some useful accessories, the Sun Joe SBJ606E-GA has all the features, plus the powerful 14-amp motor of the SBJ605E, but adds a fourth job capability. This Sun Joe blower 3 in 1 model adds the necessary accessories to vacuum clean gutters with ease. For an extra $30, you add the ability to clear gutters with ease using the same Sun Joe blower 3 in 1 that clears off all types of surfaces.

Price: $103.

5: Sun Joe 13.5-Amp 3-in-1 Walk Behind Electric Blower/Vacuum/Mulcher

The last Sun Joe Blower 3 in 1 model on the list is their unique walk-behind design. This is a blower/vacuum/mulcher system on wheels if you want something that you don’t have to carry. It has an air velocity rating of 130 mph, and the 13.5 amp motor reduces yard debris at a 10 to 1 rate. The 3 in 1 walk behind the design is one also very affordable, priced at under $160 for the complete package.

The handle is adjustable to any height, so short or tall people will be comfortable wheeling the machine around. It’s a great tool for large flat surfaces and is especially good for removing leaves from the yard. The Sun Joe Walk Behind 3 in 1 tool has 7-inch wheels for easy maneuverability, with a vacuum deck width of 19 inches.

This model is also great for snow removal from driveways and sidewalks. One disadvantage is the fact it is a corded piece of equipment, so you would need to use caution in wet conditions. The need for an extension cord also limits its practical use on large yards, or situations with lots of trees, poles, and fences.

Price: $159. 

6: Sun Joe iONBV 40V Cordless 3-in-1 Blower/Vacuum/Mulcher

If your circumstances make using an extension cord unappealing, there are three Sun Joe Blower 3 in 1 models, powered by a battery. The smallest is the iONBV 40V Cordless 3 in 1 Blower/Vac/Mulcher. It provides triple threat performance without the need for a cord.

All Sun Joe blower 3 in 1 cordless models use a brushless motor. This means less chance of failure since the motor is more durable because it runs cooler. Model numbers iONBV and iONBV-CT are the same piece of equipment. Both have a wind force rating of 200 mph with a large 17-gallon vacuum bag. Each also uses the variable trigger speed control for precision work.

The CT model is core tool only, so you’ll need to either have a battery pack and charger or purchase one separately. Each core tool costs $99, and the battery/charger package is $179.00. The only disadvantage of either model is the CT since it ships without a battery power supply.

Price: $187.

7: Sun Joe iON 40V 5.0 Ah Cordless 3-in-1 Blower/Vacuum/Mulcher

the Sun Joe iON 40V 5.0 Ah Cordless 3-in-1 Blower model

The last of the Sun Joe blower 3 in 1 models that are handheld is the iONBV-XR. This is also the largest cordless power system Sun Joe makes. It packs a 40V 5.0 Ah motor, which pushes air velocities as high as 200 mph. The extra power ups the debris reduction rate to an impressive 17 to 1.

The iONBV-XR also has an extra large, 16-gallon collection bag for the vacuum/mulcher system. Like all the Sun Joe blower 3 in 1 models, it sports the convenient, easy conversion blower tube to vacuum shoot design. This is great for projects that have a portion of blowing, then the need for a quick change to vacuum up areas.

All Sun Joe cordless models use a lithium-ion battery for improved power and longevity. This model is more costly than the other handheld blowers but provides the most versatility and power. Each of the cordless blowers weighs less than 10 pounds, including the battery, so they are easy to handle and won’t wear you out on the tough jobs.

Price: $193.

Let’s Recap

Sun Joe 3 in 1 blower vacuums are built to last, as evidenced by their full 2-year warranty. They provide both corded and cordless models, each packing a powerful air velocity rating. Sun Joe vacuum systems have some of the best debris reduction ratings, so tackling large amounts of yard debris is a snap. Any of these models can handle small or large jobs, and an extra appealing feature is that all Sun Joe accessories are interchangeable between models.
