    Good Mulcher. Works well
    We have a few blowers, so we bought this unit just to suck and mulch. It works very well. The bag does get a little heavy when it starts reaching capacity, but then the sound changes and that helps to know too that it is time to empty. (We keep a bag nearby to hold a couple of bags worth.) After about a year of use a small hole appeared where the full brunt of the inflow hits. Sticks and stones sometimes are sucked in. We contacted Black and Decker and they sent us a free replacement bag. I am still using the old bag because the leaves plug the hole anyway---and it works. So now we are ready for anything.

    The mulching of the leaves and the removal (not dispursal--as with the blowing) makes the job of leafwork go faster. I never understood teams of field guys with gas-powerd blowers blowing and blowing leaves over and over again. Sometimes onto the streets or neighbors or public land. Stupid. This machine does the job. The bag is easy to remove and put back on. And the shoulder strap works well to lighten the hand load, and to carry the bag to the compost pile. Buy this machine!


    The bag could me more sturdy where the inflow hits the cloth. Maybe reinforcement could be built in.

    This product is "OK" as a blower, but absolutely horrible as a vacuum. Overall, as ill-conceived, poorly-designed and badly executed. e
    The attachments are cumbersome, and difficult to attach and remove, and the "off/on" switch is awkwardly placed, such that it is far too easy to inadvertently turn it off or on just by placing it on the ground or repositioning the device in one's grip.

    Not much.


    The vacuum feature is totally frustrating and ineffective. The vacuum attachment and bag themselves are very difficult to attach and remove, the 'ergonomics' are non-existant and the bag has no "handle" to allow the user to conveniently move it to a disposal site. This makes it very cumbersome, difficult to use and essentially ineffective device. DON'T BUY THIS!
