The specs are contradicting. First it says tool only, no battery, no charger; then it says tool, battery, charger included. Does it come with battery or not?
Asked by: Robert
NO battery. And would strongly urge you to pick up the high-end lithium battery for this unit. Yes, it's pricier, but you do not want the vacuum petering out on you during essential work time.

Will this unit handle acorns ?

I have a ton of acorns so this question would definitely be on top.
Asked by: PepperMan
Yeah, This thing "could" suck a golf ball through a garden hose if it was given a fair chance. The problem is, it was not. Ryobi dropped the ball on this unit. If the cost of a battery was not the same as what I paid for it, I would send it packing. I am going to rework this thing and adapt some wheels that are not so weak and a collection bag from an old Troybuilt corded vacuum that I have. If it was more level and closer to the ground it might, but I doubt it, severely. Buy a broom, rake, and shovel before wasting money on this technological piece of "ingenuity".

Did Ryobi really use a “Zip Tie” to secure the bag to the mounting plate?

I have 4 Ryobi 40volt tools and really love them! I ordered the Vac Attack and the bag was detached from the mounting plate. I thought, ok, maybe they were separate, in looking at the hole on the bag where the mounting plate attaches, there is a zip tie threaded around it. Is this REALLY the quality of a $179 Ryobi tool??
Asked by: Rhet
Yeah, a flippin zip tie. This thing sucks. I don't mean that in a good way either.

Does the bottom of the bag have any ground clearance or does it slide along the ground?

Asked by: Motoelise
Hi Motoelise! This will depend on how tall the user is and how high the unit itself is off the ground when holding it. It does have a durable base to the bag. We hope this helps!

RYOBI 40-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Battery Leaf Vacuum/Mulcher (Tool Only) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 317.

I liked the fact that this had wheels to support the vacuum tube (see picture). This is much better than the over the shoulder type I had been using. Secondly, this is battery powered, so no cord to drag around. The 40 volt battery and charger are compatible with other RYOBI 40 volt tools so that is a plus. The charger is well-marked so you can always tell how the charging process is going (see picture). Another nice feature of this vacuum/mulcher is the large bag which has a dual zippered opening (see picture) so you can empty the bag much quicker. There are another couple of features worth mentioning. I was impressed with the locking mechanisms for both the vacuum tube sections (see picture) and the two types of attachment for the tube to the body of the vacuum (see picture). These will make for very secure attachment but also make it easy to detach if you need to clean out the vacuum tube. I highly recommend this vacuum/mulcher!

What is not so great is the wheels and the bag and how it attaches to the vacuum. First, the wheels. They are pretty cheap and I feel they can break too easily. Second is the bag and that is a long list. (A) It is way to large for maneuverability. I have stepped on it several times and gotten tripped-up by it and almost fell. (B) Whatever material they used on the inside holds onto the leaf pieces and wont let go. It is not easy to empty at all. (C) The two zippers do not pull down together because of the leaves getting caught in it. (D) The Velcro flap that seals the two zippered flap leaks dirt and leaves fowling the zippers from the outside. (E) At the top of the bag where it attaches to the vacuum, leaks dirt and leaf pieces. Overall I would give it 5 stars because it has power and uses the same 40v battery. Since 1/2 of the unit is the bag, I take away 2 1/2 stars. When you want something that sucks, you don't want something that sucks. BIG SMILE

All of my lawn equipment is Ryobi, so was very excited to get this Vacuum. Already have a 40 volt battery, so have a built in back up battery. At first was a little disappointed in the set up of the unit, seemed a little bulky. But after just one use I am sold. The unit has wheels on the bottom of the suction unit. Was not sure about this. After using it who ever designed this unit is a genius, or does his yard work haha. Worked great. Could walk around rolling the suction unit. Was easy to manuever. With the handle could move the suction unit for small areas. Very very nice. The storage bag seems to hold a lot. It did collect a lot of material after use and seemed to stick to the bag after I used it. The vacuum seems to such up just about everything. can tilt it very easily to get it closer the ground. Did not try it on high. only low. Was afraid of the high, might start sucking soil up.. Very pleased.

I didn't have enough leaves in my yard to do this test so I went over to my buddies house who had a ton of the stuff. It works well and killed three medium size piles, 6' x 3' x 2', in about 15 to 20 min. Why did we stop you ask ... the 40 volt battery which is really sweet could only do about 20 to 25 min on high for this mulcher. So my recommendation, is to get an extra battery when you buy this. The whole setup is light and easy to maneuver when its empty or up to half full, but the bag gets rather heavy when you get about over half way filled. I would recommend getting a shoulder strap too when you purchase the Ryobi Cordless Leaf Mulcher. As you can see from my picture, this is for light to middle duty. It for you weekend warrior, and it is quite good for that type of work. The leaves get mulched but be away it is not a fine much it definitely a rough mulch you will get from it. I recommend you buy this if you have a half dozen leafy trees in your yard and about 1/4 to 1/2 an acre to have to work because you will need more than two batteries and chargers if you have anymore than that.

I was torn between giving this 3 or 4 stars, would have given 3.5 if possible. Pros - Using only as a leaf vacuum. Power is surprisingly strong for a battery powered unit. To me, close to as strong as a corded unit (different brand), I owned previously. The freedom of an uncorded unit is a big plus. Cons - It's a big one. The bag is very poorly designed. In an awkward spot (on the bottom) makes it tough to detach and attach. The emptying design, two parallel zippers and a velcro strap are cumbersome. Why the velcro strap in addition to the zippers? The strap invites leakage of debris. The bag needs a total redesign. With a better bag design this would have been a no brainer 5 star review. The bag design of my previous corded unit was light years ahead of this one.

Lots of power but 2 things would make this a superior tool. 1. wheels are needed but the current wheels have the wrong geometry for good pickup. If you look at the picture you can see that to get the front pickup tube to be parallel to the ground you would have to lift the unit to a ridiculous angle. To get proper pickup I removed the wheels and now have lost the functionality of having wheels, a tiring prospect. 2. The bag is fastened by velcro strips at the top of the bag and a zipper along the sides. The velcro gets filled with dirt and debris when you empty the bag and no longer makes a proper seal. Better to have a zipper the full length of the bag to solve this. Overall I would buy this again because nothing else I found was suitable, a good tool with some work to be done to make this exceptional.

We have 7 different cordless Ryobi products, we love those and they work great. This Leaf Vac is terribly designed and poorly made. The tube that sucks up the leaves is only 4.5" wide. It took way too much time for dry leaves to go single file up the tube. If the tube gets jammed, you are outta luck. The tube comes in two pieces and once together, never apart. You can only loosen one thumb screw and then while holding the pin out with one hand, yank the tube off with the other, if your strong enough. You then need a 4' pole to clean out the tube. One end of the bag comes off with a button press, very easily. The other end took such work I ending up sitting down and studying it to figure out how to get the thing off. There's not enough clearance (so it stays on) to get it off easily. Not much of a quick release design there. The final straw was that after 30 minutes of use, it died completely. The battery that came with it lasted 30 minutes. We changed it out with the other 3 40 Volt Ryobi we had to finish our cleanup but the unit just would not work again. I boxed it up and took it back to HD. We really expected it to work great. A big disappointment compared to the other battery operated tools we use.

The "Ryobi" cordless leaf vacuum / mulcher aka "VACATTACK" leaf mulcher arrived 2 days ago here at my home in South Carolina. The unit was very easy to assemble following the manufacturer's directions. So, once the 40-Volt battery charged, I went on a "leaf-gathering / mulching" journey around my house, the next lot,and everywhere the leaves had fallen since the winter began. This amazing leaf vacuum did shred approximately 15 bags of leaves into usable mulch. Because the unit travels on adjustable wheels and also has an adjustable speed dial, the winter "raking of the leaves" chore was soon accomplished. I also have large deposits of pine needles because my property is surrounded by large pine trees here in the South. Once again, this new "Ryobi" mulcher vacuumed up the needles with ease. Thank you to the "Ryobi" company for another very useful product!
