Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mitch11003 Awkward
Just purchased this and used once. It definitely does help get the job done faster, but with caveats.
I have an older Black and Decker "Vac and Mulch". None of the adapters work with it. The "universal adapter" slides after you tighten it (and once you ratchet it tight you cannot loosen it up again). Luckily the hose ending slides right onto my Vac and Mulch almost tight... so duct tape becomes my universal adapter.
The garbage pail cover is awkward to attach and you almost need a helper. You need a heavy pail that is not top-heavy, otherwise the pail falls over, the top pops off and mulched leaves spray out. Next time I may put bricks in the pail! Also, alot of the mulch collects into the cover, hanging over the sides of the pail like a mushroom, so when you take it off alot of it falls out. And a dust cloud forms when you use it... so be warned.
I wonder if just using the hose taped to the inside of a pail would be easiest?
For almost $40 I am not sure if this is the contraption that saves the day. I think $20 to $30 would be more realistic.

The connector doesn't fit real tight into my Poulan Pro, but with a little duct tape around the adapter I got a good tight fit. It works great and fills a 32 gallon trash can faster than I could empty the bag before.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChinoXS impressed for now
this saved me a lot of time from bagging all my leaves since the town no longer allows us to drop at the curb. paired this with the Toro 5169. i used a small trashcan which took about 7 loads for me to complete my mulching. the worx tubing is a bit touch to maneuver but i guess that can be a good thing so it doesn't ripe or break too easy. i had no problem with the unit staying on the trashcan or blowing off. easy to put on and take off with the drawstring seems like a well made piece and i have always been skeptical of Worx products just because of their heavy marketing. the toro connection was easy an and off as well and the plastic clip to hold the two units together seems durable

This works as advertised, in fact better than I was expecting! It fits perfectly over a 55 gallon garbage can and simple to tighten so it doesn't come off. In conjunction with the Worx leaf blower/vac it mulches the leaves down to a fraction of the size. I have over a 1/2 acre lot with a lot of large mature trees so we get a ton of leaves. I can do my whole yard (front and back) and only have to empty the garbage can 2.5 times. Blow all the leaves into a huge pile, then flip the switch add the collection system to the garbage can and suck all the leaves away. Couldn't be easier!

Ordered the leaf collector. Showed that it came with different attachments, but came with the universal attachment. Holds tight to our Craftsman leaf blower. It is helpful to have an extra hand to hold the tube while placing the cover on a garbage can, but can be done by one person. We used it with 33 gal plastic garbage cans and it stayed attached. It helps to hold on to the can while moving so it does not initially fall over, but once it starts to fill it becomes more stabile. It definitely saves on emptying the leaf bag over and over along with the weight that it used to put on our shoulders. It is a time saver.

My blower/vaccume has a safety interlock that I could not bypass and it would not work for me.
I can easily see how this would be an excellent product, well made.

This item has saved me so much time from emptying that small bag multiple times while collecting leaves. Fits most round or square cans. Great product.

Good quality but sometimes hard to stay on garbage can. Price is better if you go direct to manufacturer.
