Good suction but the collection bag needs redesign
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used the leaf vac/mulcher and vacuumed 12 lawn and leaf bags full of leaves. Good suction but the seams on the collection bag rub on the driveway and they disappear, leaving me with a collection bag that leaks leaves through the worn out stitching.
    Very dissatisfied
    I bought this item a month ago and I was so excited to use it as I was already happy with my Ryobi lawnmower however this product did not perform well at all the shoot gets clogged very frequently and the impeller area gets clogged and now I hear a ticking sound my bag is also tearing only after three weeks of use and I only have one tree in my front yard and a very small home I think it’s faster to collect the leaves with a rake and throw them into a paper bag the leaves were always dry and they still got stuck with my settings turned on high I know I had to leave the leaves at the end of the sidewalk so I can go buy an old fashion rake and collect them myself as this tool takes way too long to use as you have to keep cleaning it every two minutes very expensive too what a shame I paid for the convenience to save time, but a 10$ rake is faster
      Great work mulching leaves.
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Just purchased this and used it last weekend. Cleaned up this pile of leaves quickly. Very easy to use and manipulate.

        Bad tool
        I really like Ryobi product but this one is a o e that should not be sells. On the first time I used it is just not working well, every couple of seconds it stop working and even week on high could not pick a twig. Also the seal on the bag is bad a lot of debris is coming out. Very disappointing.

            Easy clean up
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this and I enjoy using both my blower and my vac to clean up the winter leaves, I have different types of trees and the fall at different times, so it is nice to have a way to clean up with these tools, I keep my driveway clean and it only takes a few minutes to suck up the leaves and move on to other projects. I look forward to seeing what other tools I can use to keep my house and yard neat.

            Needs some improvements.
            I was impressed with the suction but I have to agree with others who have reviewed this product, I too had a wheel snap off on the second use and just had the other snap off after about 6 or 7 uses. I just bought it about 2 weeks ago. The bag also lets out a lot of dust and you will be dusty when you get done. Not as bad as the other leaf vacuum I purchased from another company. The bag could also use a strap. I find myself switching hands often due to the weight you have to carry around after a few minutes. The nozzle also seems to be at a bad angle also adding to the weight since you have to pick it up higher to get the leaves to suck up. If these problems get fixed it will be a really good product.

              I have only used it twice, but enough to provide you feedback. It worked fairly well for me, but I do not believe that a full bag is equivalent to 16 leaf bags... maybe 2 -3 at best! The battery charge only lasts for 35-40 minutes, but I was tired by that time anyway, and needed to rest while the battery recharged. One of the wheels broke off from the attachment that clips into the bottom of the vacuum chute. The plastic stem that one of the wheels was attached to snapped off during my very first use (see attached photo below). That design needs to be much more robust... can I get a replacement for that piece? Let me know how, if that is possible. Thanks.

              Destroyer of Kid Fun
              Just finished my first use of the tool, so I can't speak to durability in the long run. I had the kids rake up a nice pile and they started to play. Shortly after I brought out my new tool and once they saw it in action they got sad. Big pile, about 6x8x2, damp from some light snowfall. The machine picked it all up like a champ. Great power until the end of the battery life. Occasionally I got a bit aggressive and ended up with a clog, but it comes loose easily. Don't know about the 16:1 ratio, maybe it is. I emptied my bag 5 times from this pile. The only down side is the battery doesn't last long enough to get the job done. 30 good minutes of work on high and just over halfway thru the pile. Then waited 2.5 hours for a full charge finding other projects to work on. Wrapped up the job in the dark on the second charge. Got about 40 minutes of work on medium. It was HEAVY, especially with the damp leaves. Still feeling it in my forearms the next morning. This thing needs a strap! Normally I'd spread out the leaves and mow them up, I think this worked better but took a lot longer. Biggest pro was I could easily clean up the flower beds. Also used it to get leaves out of the window wells, made that task a breeze. Wet leaves on the driveway came up without any effort. I worry about the durability of how the bag attaches to the machine. And the ring where the bag connects to the nozzle is poorly designed, never stayed attached. Overall I'm pleased with my first outing, hope to say the same in a few weeks after I've done the same job a few more times.
