Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent for chopping and bagging the leaves and debris. The blower/vacuum has performed well. I have found the leaf/twig mulching function to be well suited to my needs. It does indeed reduce the volume of the leaves and debris to 10%. It does a good job of cleaning up the leaves. I use the chopped material for composting, and this is perfect. I use the chopped material for mulch too. Even if you are just bagging leaves, the thing should pay for itself in a couple of years, in trash bags alone. My only unanswered question is, how durable will the internals prove to be processing the dusty, dirty, leaves? If it lasts two years I will call it a success. I will hope for more, and that will be a bonus. May 6, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this! I use the vacuum to clean up the leaves in my rock bed and it works great! Love this product, it works great picking up leaves and small bush clippings out of my rock bed. May 20, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Warp speed! Bought this item for my husband for Christmas along with some tools. He has been wanting a leaf blower for a while and I wanted specific features on a leaf blower: 1.) Speed and power, 2.) wanted it to be electric, and 3.) preferred a feature that allowed for a vacuum. This model satisfied all requirements [230 mph speed!] and had a very decent price. I received a 10% discount with a coupon for even added value. I would have given it 5 stars if the vacuum attachment were a bit easier to attach and detach. My husband has used it several times and loves it. (And the yard looks great!) January 14, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Piece of Junk The only reason I give this product one star is because there isn't a "zero" star button. Simply put, it crapped out the first time I used it. Died, quit, stopped working. Kaput. I was using it to vacuum up a pile of maple leaves and it simply stopped working. Done, finished. I had purchased it online but took it back to my local Home Depot store to return it. It took forever - the associate couldn't figure out how to credit the purchase. Never again will I purchase anything on Home Depot online. Bad experience all around. November 5, 2014
