From what I read from reviews, there may be issues with the Collection Bag or its attaching hardware, on some newer units. Is there anything that can be done to prevent trouble with these parts? If there is an issue with the Collection Bag or its attaching hardware, what is the warranty on it and where would I get a replacement? Thx.
Asked by: Larry
Like someone else, my handle detached from the bag. The warranty on bag? 30 days! I would NOT buy this machine again. Too many problems.

will this pick up leafs, acorns and small twigs at the same time?

Asked by: HomeDepotCustomer
yes, it picks up leaves, acorns, and small twigs on our property when we have the height set right, although we have a moss forest, not grass. for braches a little bigger, the chipper works great.

Customer Reviews

1.5 in. 159cc Gas Chipper Shredder Vacuum is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 332.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not worth the money. I was so disappointed. After reading the 5 star review, i thought all my fall cleaning problems would be fixed. First, I'll start with the positives. Its easy to start and assemble. It works great as a vacuum on driveways, patios etc when vacuuming small things like pinwheels from maple trees. Its nice that it has the limb chipper feature, but the main reason I bought this is to avoid raking. I live in New Hampshire and all my leaves are big. (maple, oak) This machine will vacuum these leaves only if there is a 1 leaf layer. Any more than this and it has a hard time. The bag fills up so fast, the time that you take to empty the bag makes the whole process frustrating and more time consuming than just blowing your leaves and bagging them, or using a tarp. Bottom line: its a nice idea, but disappointing performance if you have large leaves. It may work like a charm for smaller leaves. I returned the machine the next day. My advice is skip this and buy a nice backpack blower like a stihl br350.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly designed This is my first season with the machine. We have used it about a dozen times so far. We have a 0.3 acre lot with some mature maple trees as well as ash, Sweetgum and poplar. I would rate the amount of leaves to clean up as large for us (we are pushing 70). This thing is like pushing a mower and as easy to use. I found I can run it over the garden areas which have beauty bark. It picks up the leaves but not the bark. The hose is easy to use and also will pick up leaves but not bark. The chute for branches works well. We pruned a hydrangea tree and everything went in the machine. We used it to clean the driveway and even the street in front of the house. The leaves come up, the pebbles stay on the ground. The bag is easy to empty and seems sturdy enough (at this point). It gets a little heavy if it is packed full and the leaves are wet. So ... empty it a little more often. No biggie. If I was going to write a spec for the machine we needed for our yard this would be it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had a Sears-brand vacuum mulcher for over 35 years.... I had a Sears-brand vacuum mulcher for over 35 years. It died. I bought the Cub Cadet as an emergency replacement in the height of the leaf-mulching season, i.e. December 2019, and love it. I could do without the tube, so I disconnected it. The vacuum mulcher works great. It actually does a better job than my deceased vacuum mulcher. While I have to empty the bag more often, it's bearable. Overall, I look forward to many happy years with the Cub Cadet.

Excellent compared to comparable CSVs Over the last 20 years, I have owned three comparable CSVs by Troy Bilt and Craftsman. The main body is quite similar, but the addition of the tall rear wheels, ball bearing wheels, and the OHV engine provides superior performance. The engine starts on the first pull and the controls are basic and effective..

The bag, however is seriously flawed. The top plastic part tore off after maybe 8 uses (got it last fall, failed on second or third leaf session this year..so call it less than 20 hours of run time). Its not all that easy to attach or empty either. Matter of fact...it's a real pain to empty. If I did it again I'd look for a different machine. However since I've sunk about $600 into this I'm likely going to have to spend $150 for a replacement bag because Cub Cadet won't stand by their products.

It is not easy to use on hills and wants to roll away if given the chance. Once the bag fills up, it get a lot harder to push up an incline. The hose is way too short and stiff. The handle and attachment always comes loose, so carry a screwdriver to tighten the clamp. I modified it a little with some spacers so the hose could go on the tube further, but it still falls off during use. (see photo) Also using on hills, even perpendicular to the hill, using the hose moves the unit and it wants to chase gravity. Really cumbersome. You still need to blow the leaves away from walls or out of garden beds, this is just too bulky to use with any efficiency. Also the cord is very hard to pull. If you have a flat yard and nice even carpet of leaves, this would be great. Piles over 4" it just pushes them around unless you lift it up constantly. It almost never clogs and has good suction. The hose will even pick up walnuts, but it gets REALLY heavy. The bag is very clever and holds about 5 times what a push mower would. I loaned it to neighbor to use and he's not asked to borrow it again, but I still see him blowing leaves...

The vacuum hose that came with the machine had been cut too short but a single call to customer service had a replacement shipped immediately which installed with no trouble. Mistakes happen but the customer service to rectify the problem was impressive and I have no qualms about my purchase.
