Rated 4 out of 5 by from Starting Issues is a safety issue The Vac will not start unless the bag is attached correctly for safety reasons. So, the small button on the vac where the bag inserts into the machine must be press down by the bag in order to start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does what the literature says it will do and be I bought this machine three months ago and it has not failed me yet and I don't think it ever will. An added improvement would be a clutch to disengage the fans, choppers etc to make it easier for an 82 year old man to start the engine, however, it does start on the first pull as a rule.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wouldn't be without it! Have owed this product for three years. Very pleased with performance. Two improvements would help. Starts well but compression makes starting with starter cord very difficult. Bag closure is poorly designed and bag is difficult to empty; a zipper along two edges would be superior.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Junk I bought this thing 4yrs ago and it’s always been problematic. When it works or isn’t falling apart, it piocks up leaves decently. Parts are expensive. The bag is junk, the front handle broke off and now both tabs to open is are broken off. The impeller shattered a few months ago but was able to weld it up. This thing is going in the trash.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Watch what you get This vac works OK on flat ground or a driveway. The reduction in volume was a disappointment, really does not hold that may leaves. Good for a small lawn at best. Fairly hard pull start, my wife can not pull the cord to start. Much harder pull than my lawn mower of the same horsepower rating. The vacuum hose is about worthless. Should come with a pole long enough to clear as the hose clogs on anything. I have used on dry leaves and still clogs. Spend more time clearing clogs than vacuuming leaves. Does use a lot of gas!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from What a disappointment What a disapointment. The fuel tank runs dry within one half an hour. The vacumb action is always on, both the nozzle or the hose are sucking air no matter which action you select. so the nozzle isn't working at peak performance. Had to place a plastic bag over the hose aperture to pick up yard debris. The hose is heavy duty vinyl. It is so thick that it takes both arms to twist it into working position. The hose will not swivel no matter what you do. Attempting to use the attached hose handle to direct the hose resulted in breakage of the cheap plastic connector hose where the handle is bolted on. A nice big hole and a crack all the way up to the vinyl hose! The attachment clip that is used to hold the hose on the handle actually works, but the security clip needs two hands to force into position

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but... I have really enjoyed the machine and done a lot of work with it but it does have a few week points. The vacuum doesn't work as well as I expected and the hose clogs easily. Fortunately, I bought it more for light chipping than leaf pick up. The first real problem I has was that the screws that secure the chipper feed tub were always vibrating loose. The performance of the chipper depends on the correct input angle so even a little looseness can be a problem. Retightening these screws every few minutes worked for a while but eventually the threads in the skirt wore out and it became impossible to tighten them properly. I solved the problem by inserting the equivalent of a metal toothpick into each of the three holes, tighting the screws and then using a gob of RTV to keep them from vibrating loose. It worked well but it is a pain if you ever need to remove the chute to clear debris. A better design would have been if there were studs that came up from the skirt so the chute could be secured with lock nuts. It would cost a little more to make but would last a lot longer. After about 30 hours of use I noticed that the machine was no longer really chipping, but was turning the sticks fed into it into long thin strips. Investigation found that the chute had deformed a little. The chute was made by inserting a box shapped tube through a flat plate and welding these pieces at the proper angle. This angle and the clearance between the chute and the chipper blade is critical. What I found was that the trailing edge of the box tubbing (a corner actually) had been deformed by the pressure of the wood being chipped repeatedly being beaten against it by the chipping blade. This increased the clearance between the chute and the chipper blade, which is why I'm getting wood spagetti rather than chips. Not only is the resulting "mulch" lousy ground cover, it has a tendancy to get wrapped around the impeller shaft, between the impeller and the skirt where you can't get to it without removing the impeller and to do that you need a special tool (just ordered). Things have bound up enough that I could no longer start the machine against the resistance created by the debris wrapped around the shaft. It would be a simple fix to beef up the chipper chute a bit so it doesn't deform so quickly and maybe that change has already been made in newer models. If so, I would sure like to get a hold of a stronger chute! I hope it doesn't sound like I do not like the machine, because nothing could be farther from the truth. It is only because I depend on it so much that these little issues become important. I'm hoping that the feedback will help the engineers come up with a better design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Makes yard cleanup a lot easier I purchased this because I hate raking, and I was impressed with the Troy Built lawn mower I have. Out of the box the unit is easy to assemble and you should be up and running in about ten minutes. There is a slight tug when you pull to start it because of the chipper blades, but it's still easy to pull. I had to pull twice the first time I used it, after that, one quick pull was all it took. There is a manual choke and throttle located on the front of the engine. At full throttle it's not that noisy and very little vibration. I found it's features very easy to use. The front wheels adjust easily. The hose is secured to the side of the machine in two places. The metal handle is secured in it's own holder and easily lifts out, and the top of the hose has a small rubber joint in a metal holder. Just lift and remove. To use the hose just flip a lever on the front of the machine and you're ready to go. It also comes with an extension for further reach. The hose can also be removed completely with the push of a button, and a metal plate secures the opening for safety reasons. The rear bag is large (2 bushels) and is made of felt with a vynal lining. It has a handle on both front and back for ease of handling. It removes easily also, just pull the safety lever at the rear of the machine and slide the bag up, the opening is small so the contents won't spill out. The plastic handle on the other end is secured to the push bar, just grab it and pull up. The rear of the bag opens by undoing two clasps. It unfolds providing a large opening to remove the debris. The opening is large enough that it could be emtied while still attached to the machine because the rear flap drops down to the ground. The machine cannot be operated with the bag removed, a nice safety feature. The owners manual is concise giving detailed instructions on setup and maintainence including removal of the blades and chippers for shapening if you're so inclined. Now for the cons: The throttle is located at the front of the engine and just barely sticks out. A cable throttle on the handle bar would be nice. If you empty the contents of the bag into a large trash bag, the flap on the bag extends further making it difficult. The machine weighs 150 lbs. If you're getting older like me and have a bumpy yard you might want to opt for the self propelled unit. All in all I'm very satisfied with this machine. It starts easily and does it's job well, and it's easy to maintain. I would recommend this to anyone.
