Rated 1 out of 5Â by Van888 This is a great concept, but a disaster in practice. Huge DUST cloud!
As others have said, its a bit difficult to assemble. The attachment to the vacuum is fine but getting the cover to hold on the trash can is a bit tricky and getting the hose attached to the trash can cover was tricky as well. So, OK, I get it all put together and try it out on a pile of leaves to see how well this whole setup will work. Holy Moly and OMG! As soon as I sucked up some leaves this huge dust cloud of mulched leaves started blowing out of the cover to the trash. There wasn't a hole or error in making the attachment, but all the dust was blowing out of the mesh covering. The mesh is too coarse to keep the debris in the container where it belongs. Dust covered EVERYTHING! My blower/Vac unit, me, the cars parked in the street. I just had to return the unit as this was so not going to work out. If you really want this thing, use a respirator mask and goggles and old clothes! Do not get this attachment! I was a great idea, but poor reality!

We've had this attachment for our Leaf Hog blower/vac for 6 or 7 years now. It saves us time when we bag leaves for collection each year on our heavily wooded lot. We put a clear lawn and leaf bag into a Rubbermaid trash can, and put the cover on top. I replaced the clamp on the drawstring with one that worked better, and we have pushed the hose about 6 inches into the elastic band to keep it from blowing out. We have had issues with blow-outs and clogs that are frustrating, but not nearly as frustrating as trying to scoop leaves into the bags with a rake. It saves on bags too, because you can get a lot more mulched leaves into a bag than unmulched leaves. Sometimes sticks have gotten into the vac and have punctured holes in the hose, so ours has areas where it's patched with duct tape, but it's lasted pretty well. The mesh of the cover has worn out around the elastic band now, so we're shopping for another. I have found that mulching them once with no attachment on and then picking them up with this attached to the can is very effective as far as avoiding clogs. I blow the leaves down to the ditch, then mulch them once, blow them into a more compact pile, then vacuum them into the bags. I cannot imagine trying to get our leaves up without it. It will be dusty and messy, so make sure you wear a mask when you are using this attachment.

used this a few times and works just as expected with no issues. One thing i do is I put some rocks in the trashcan before I put on the trash bag so the trash can doesn't flip over due to either the weight of the tube or while extending the tube. Makes yard clean up much faster- i just blow all the leaves is a pile then use this to bag them up. the days of using the over the shoulder bag are over.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Iceclimb10 What a great idea!
It's a little challenge attaching the cover over the trash can every time I change the bag but you get use to it. I use a 33 gal rubber trash can and heavy duty 44 gal trash bags and reuse them. I store the mulcher and all the accessories in the trash can and use the trash can for mulching only.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by gardener where's the bag?
no bag. Where is the bag (trash can cover) that was to be included in the package? Mine did not have a trash can cover / bag cover. Therefore it is useless.
