    A:  Who knows!  The one I have is totally erratic. 75% of the time the switch does not work at all. But when it does “high” has very little power. I have lots and lots of RyobI products that I like very much but this one is useless. I can do a better job picking up leaves with my hands

                Light Duty, Dry/Single-Leaf Vacuum
                The VacAttack is ideal for mulching 1-2 leaves at a time over even ground, with dry leaves only. Even slight moisture, or occasional pine cones, will cause clumping that requires disassembly of the device to unclog. It would be faster to use a long stick with a nail attached to clear leaves than use the Vac Attack in your yard; you can easily anticipate spending more time removing leaves from the inlet tube or impeller housing than you will actually mulching leaves. Very cheap construction.

                  Get the job done?
                  I have one Red Oak. Raked all of the leaves up in to one long, 2-2.5’ high, stack. First. You need to go slow to allow the unit to pull in the leaves and mulch them through to the bag. You cannot just go bonkers wild and expect this is going to be really quick. This is very good for rolling around and picking up leaves here and there. It will do a big job like but will likely take 5-6 fully charged batteries, and same amount of time. You can just rake and bag them leaves faster.

                    Nice but.......
                    The first one I bought in September, didn't use it until the last week of October worked fine for the first two times I used it. On the third time it died after a small nugget of mulch got caught in the blade. After I removed the nugget it would not work again. Glad I bought the warranty, so when I took it back to Home Depot, they just gave me a new one. Haven't used the new one yet, rain soaked the piles of leaves I had, so i had to pick them up the old fashioned way. The one recommendation I would make is the bag holds allot of mulched leaves, but should have a sling so you could sling it over your shoulder or put wheels on the bottom of the bag to make it more maneuverable rather than having to drag it.

                    Bag tore after 2 uses... no replacements
                    Vacuum socks up dry leaves pretty well, but it is heavy and awkward to maneuver once the bag starts to fill (it swings in front of your legs and bangs into your knees as you try to move the nozzle side-to-side). The bag tore where it attaches to the plastic clip after two uses... now 1/4 of my mulched leaves shoot out the top of my bag. I've tried sowing it, but the material is frayed and won't hold. Worse still, I can't find any replacement bags. Also, the vacuum is really only useful on the highest setting, anything else lower and you'll be there forever. Best option I've found is to rake the yard and the vacuum the pile, but the bag fills quick and then clogs, and it is messy to empty. It's probably just quicker to put the leaf piles directly into leaf bags as the mulcher only reduces their size by about 1/3. Basically, it's a fancy, expensive, waste of both time and money. I won't be replacing this "tool".

                      Suck up the leaves!!
                      If you have to get leaves off the ground this fall, do yourself a favor and get the Vac Attack leaf vacuum from Ryobi. This thing sucks, in a good way. To get started pop in a 40 volt battery, select low, medium, or high speed then hit the trigger and suck, suck, suck your way to the easiest yard cleanup ever! I blew the leaves into a pile and then sucked that pile up. Here is a video if you want to see how it works. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4R6ZfQ4dvQ

                        Series design flaw causing debrif leaking out
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The bag had series design flow and lots of debrif would leak out, I had to fill the gap with a rug to make it usable. The plastic connection also leaks, although some electric tape solves the problem. What a shame otherwise really good product.

                          Ryobi leaf mulches
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought this to help clean up back yard of house we bought, was some leaves and other debris. I figured if it would pick up 50% of stuff I would save that much time in raking, was surprised it picked up about 90% of everything on the lawn. Saved me a couple of hours of raking and all those bags, everything fit in a contractors bag with room to spare. I would definitely recommend this Ryobi 40v leaf mulcher, saved so much time and trash bags.

                            Beware: Not a true metal impeller
                            I think it’s false advertising to say “metal impeller” when in fact it’s plastic with a small metal piece in front of it. I’ve broken plastic impellers like these before.. We’ll see how this does.

                              Picks up great BUT bag tore quickly
                              The Vacuum/Mulcher itself is well built and appears to be very durable. Handled anything it picked up. I have some trees that put out alot of leaves and this handled them great. The bag didn't handle the stress though and tapped out after 2 charges of a 2ma battery and half a charge of a 6ma battery. Not sure if it was just a defective catch bag. It started fraying around the intake clamp and eventually blew a hole. Which now just sprays debris everywhere.
