Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Batman Good blower/vac
The blower/vac is a good quality product. The blower is not quite as powerful as many other models, but it is plenty powerful for what I need it for. The vac is good. It picked up the leaves very well. Some of the bigger leaves did get clogged or the opening of the vac, but one you tapped it on the ground it would suck them up. The metal impeller is great and it mulches the sticks and bark very well without damage. I am very pleased with the size of the bag and it is very comfortable to carry. The switch that changes it from blower to vac is really easy to use and is built to last. I am very happy with this blower/vac.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Marie Bag extremely hard to take off
Before buying this, I already had the same blower/mulcher with the plastic blades. I love it, but thought that this one with the metal blades and a higher mulching ratio would be better. It would have been except at the first use, the bag started coming apart due to the bad design (cable tie in position to protrude against the bag). I might could have lived with this, but taking the bag off to empty it was extremely difficult. Even my husband had trouble getting it off. Don't know whether something was out of round or oversize. I let my husband take the first one to our place at the lake, but now he is going to have to bring it back. I would order this one again if I knew that the bag wouldn't tear apart and that I could get it off to empty it without a struggle. Very disappointed.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kantor1331 Its ok
the blower doesn't really blow well. So I found myself using my normal leaf blower to pile up the leaves. the mulcher part works ok! I don't think it mulches as well as it advertises. Also the unit get heavy when mulching. You will definatly need to use the strap on the bag to help hold the weight. Especially if you are a smaller person.
The leaf collection bag fills quickly. I wish that there was a bigger bag. I wont say don't buy this as it does mulch. But if your looking for a decent blower. This isnt it

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rgali I really like this product; the quality is consistent with other products from the manufacturer.
I recently purchased two items from this manufacture (WORX). I am very pleased with both. A friend brought one Trivac Blower/Mulcher/Vacs over while I was doing yard cleanup and I was impressed enough to know I had to have one. This unit functions as both a powerful blower and a portable vacuum mulcher. It seems to do both jobs quite well. The TriVac Deluxe 210 mph 350 CFM Electric 12 Amp Blower/Mulcher/Vac seems to have been well thought out. I just hope it hold up over time. So far I really like the WORX products.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Arkymark colossal waste of time!
Got this yesterday and decided to use it today. Makes for a lot more work. If your leaves have even one twig or pebble in it this seems to clog up the vacuum. Very frustrated with it. Very time consuming to unclog the vacuum every 10 seconds or so. I guess I'm stuck with it because the metal impeller is already dinged up. the blower part seems to work fine. It needs a vacuum feature that DOESN'T mulch, one that just puts in the container. Very disappointed in this.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Smcf Very disappointed.
I was really looking forward to this tool being easy to use and effective as promised in the commercials. It was the exact opposite. It was awkward. The bag only installed one way which seemed to be backwards. This made the bag twist when using the vacuum. After using it only twice, the bag started to rip because of this. The nose or tube is also VERY short. Having to bend over the whole time and deal with the bag is very hard on your back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steven Great Vac, OK Blower
Have owned for almost three years and use this all the time as we have 8-10 huge pine trees in the backyard. The vacuum feature is good (very easy to switch between blow/vac) and has no problem with leaves and pine straw. However, the vacuum doesn't do as good with pine cones, small sticks, etc. Normally have to turn it off and let the pieces fall out. Bloweris OK, but at times it just doesn't seem to be powerful enough.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Debbie Worst blower ever
I bought into the hype about this product from a infomerical. The workx blower does not live up to the hype. It is very heavy, even when shifting hands frequently, it takes a long time to blow a small area. I also checked out the mulching feature, whole leaves would come out the mulching section.
Needless to say, this product is going back for a refund. My little black and decker is smaller, lighter and more powerful than this heavy arm breaker.
