This is so cheaply made that I had to use duck tape and zip ties to keep it together, the pick up chute has a small extruded area that causes the leafs and small twigs to plug up the chute. The hose kept coming off the leave blower and as did the hose that goes into the net. The net is sub standard

First use after unpacking. Hose assembly made of cheap materials, not designed for high velocity/mulch leaf collection. Made of mostly thin gauge plastic easily kinks(permanent) and tears.
Pail drawstring mesh attachment keeps loosening not designed for pails with handles.
Product worked pretty well until hose structure failed.

This is a gadget that really works; leaf collection is now almost fun!
I have used this system for a month now and cleared the entire back yard full of wet leaves faster than ever before.
The biggest drawback of leaf collection is the bag: it's too small, bulky, hard to empty, and takes a lot of time away from collecting leaves, but it is heavy! This product solves all those problems: by using a separate container, you don't have to carry the leaves around with you, the capacity is huge, and it's easy to empty when you need to. All this means you can spend more time clearing up leaves instead of emptying a bag. Also, the weight of the leaf vac never changes because the leaves you collect are not attached to you.
From reading other reviews, you know there are some engineering improvements that need to be made (see photos): positive closures where the tube goes into the fabric and where the fabric covers the collection bin are needed, as is a heavy weight in the bottom of the bin. Your experience may be different, but I needed to tighten up the connection between the tube and the leaf vac itself (B&D Leaf Hog) with some duct tape.
Operation is smooth; the collection tube itself never clogged; if the leaves make it through the leaf vac, they will end up in the bin. An additional benefit of having such a large receptacle is that there is always a clear path away from the leaf vac--collecting into a bag decreases the performance of the vacuum as you go. Even with a lot of sticks, the collection tube held up very well when collecting leaves on grass. When collecting leaves on dirt with some mulch and stones, something did punch a hole in the tube, but it did not affect the efficiency of collection. Moral: blow leaves away from the dirt and onto the grass before collecting them.
Even with only one season's use, there is already some wear showing on the fabric. Whether or not that matters remains to be seen. Even if it wears out soon, I'll just buy another one. No more bags!
It works great. It saves a lot of time and energy running back and forth to the compost pile to empty my bag.

Totally helpful. I have some big trees and I fill my green waste bin every week. Before this I was stopping and dumping the bag 8 or 9 times to dump the backpack bag. This is a big timesaver, and no more carting the heavy backpack. Unfortunately this won’t fit on our green waste bin, so I put it on a standard size trash can. If it could fit the green waste bin it’d be 5 stars.

Have used twice since purchased. Works as described. Need to make sure the container you are using has a adequate lip around the top. Yes unbelievably dusty. Will need to spray off sidewalks and areas close, including washing car if you weren't smart enough to move it.. Need to wear clothing that covers, face mask and goggles wouldn't hurt. No issues as far as quality yet.
