      I'm an Executive Gardener, Contractor, and Landscape Architect and I love Craftsman Tools in my kit. I bought this blower because I have a few clients in cities that don't allow blowers over 55db, and no professional grade gas blower goes that low yet. Sears lists this one as 54.4 and I keep the spec sheet in my truck. For an electric blower it has plenty of power for residential purposes and I really like the variable speed for when I'm in tight spaces or finishing a pile. It has better control than my gas blower. It's relatively light weight and the suction works well too. Still, I am greatly disappointed in the cord attachment function. Sears lists that it comes with a 7' (foot) cord and a cord lock. WRONG!!! The cord on mine is only 4" (inches), which isn't even enough to tie a not with, and there is no cord lock. The major down fall of electric devices, is that the cord is cumbersome, catches and falls out. Sears BLEW it on this one. I make due by wrapping the cord through the handle for now but this too get irritating during use. It's a good tool, but Sears needs to do a better job on proofing the text of the items they advertise, for both technical correctness and grammar.

      Blower it is ok, zipper for the mulch bag is a disappointment
      I got this unit on June of 2012 so far it is ok. First the blower is ok, not as advertised with 240 mph, that will be cat 5 hurricane speed, truth is maybe 170 mph, maybe less due to the exhaust pipe is not completely sealed and air goes out thought the joints overall ok, and the extension cord is not 7 ft it is just 3 to 4 inches, long. Second and the disappointment the mulcher function is not that good, I have a two Syracuse trees their leaves are big and if the intake pipe takes too many at the same time, it will clogged very easily. I have to be careful not to pick a pile and a lot people complain about the dust it is true so wear a mask. the ratio is like 12 to 14 to 1, but the propeller is very good been metal. In the past I had blowers with plastic propeller and they break after the second winter. The zipper in the bag it is very low quality, it jams very easily and now I just used in the second winter the zipper is not capable to close anymore. In the past the mulch bags came with steel zipper, but this one is terrible the material of the bag is very bad. I spend all day talking with different departments in Sears to find a replacement because it is not cover by the warranty, until finally in customer service in parts she was able to find it. Do not try the phone on the product it has change. The part number is 31103148 it cost $18 plus shipping and handling and taxes and the actual model for the blower in case needs parts for it is 138.74898 do not go by the model number in your receipt or in the website. I hope this may help to decide to buy this product

      Zero stars!

      Had to give 1 star to submit a review but would give this blower/vac zero stars. I've owned several yard vacs and this is by far the worst. First, the bag tore after 2 uses.. so I taped it up with duct tape. Next, the zipper malfunctioned which rendered the unit unusable to pick up leaves. I used my purchase protection to get reimbursed for the $20 replacement bag. When the bag arrived, I find out it's not Craftsman brand but a "replacement" bag. The bag fit the vac but the replacement did not have the proper plastic "tooth" to deactivate the safety switch on the unit. Finally got it to work by combining the tooth from the old bag. After 1 more use, the motor died....awesome. My last vac was a Black & Decker Leaf Hog that lasted about 8 or 9 years. This piece of **** lasted exactly 4 uses over about 2 months. Sure the purchase protection reimbursed me the full price but it breaks down like this: Initial purchase: $70 Purchase protection plan: $10 New bag (which did not work): $20 TOTAL PRICE: $100 Reimbursed: $70 I'm down $30 and picking up leaves by hand!!! Totally awesome!!! Never buy this product unless you want to spend a bunch of time on the internet filing a claim, boxing up the crappy unit, taking it to UPS and ending up with a broken vac. Save yourself the frustration and buy a Black & Decker.... it's what I should have done.

      excellent value, instructions could be better

      This leaf blower is much more powerful than what is being replaced, yet still light-weight. There are several attachment tools and a vacuum bag included. There is a safety feature requiring an attachment tool for power which is not well documented, but now that is understood. This also made light work of blowing snow, where not deep enough for shoveling. I have no affiliation with Sears or Craftsman products except as a customer. However, I may be offered a small award for reviewing this product.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
