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

Blower Is Defective

Ordered one on line for store pickup. I plugged it in and nothing. Blower was dead. I returned it to the store, and the store clerk pulled another one from stock and plugged it into power. Blower was dead. The store had no more inventory. Stupidly I went to another Sears store and bought another one. Plugged it in using a heavy duty extension cord. Blower was dead. Before I returned it to the store, I took the item to a Sears repair center, and they did not know why it would not work. After returning it to the store the sales clerk pulled two blowers from inventory and plugged them in, all were dead. At that point I bought a Toro. Knowing the quality of the Craftsman brand It is hard to believe that Sears would allow a defective product like this to reach the shelf.

Bought this for vacuum and mulching

Bought this machine for vacuum and mulching purpose but the vacuum and mulching option doesn't have much power to sucks-up the leaves because i have to many big trees with big leaves . I guess this vacuum and mulch option are only good if you have small trees with little leaves. I have never used the blower yet because i have another blower. I bought this machine only for vacuum and mulching

I would recommend this product to a friend.

seems really great so far

love the variable speed control. easy to use your thumb while blowing. the only thing I didn't like was the way the vac . bag vents when in use especially if leafs are quite dry. Bag empties very good after a full.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Leaf blower got the job done!

I was using an older blower and it broke. I ordered this new one and picked it up same day. It was so much faster. It was light weight and easy to carry around and had plenty of power for my yard work. I have purchased other craftsman products was part of the reason I purchased it and the price was good. I only used the blower function not the vacuum.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

The only product you hope that blows and sucks at the same time!

As a leave blower it's a perfect. Was very easy to assemble and appears to be built well. The tapered nozzel attachment is really nice have not had that on other bands/models I've had. As for sucking up leaves well it doesn't suck well it sucks well you know what I mean it sucks because it doesn't suck. I'd be surprised if it could suck up feathers. The tried and true method to pick up leaves is a tarp and you rake them onto it and then use that to empty into a trash bag.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
