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

Very Good Electric Blower/Vac

This is a very good Blower/Vac! I was very suprised on how it blew the leaves away and pretty far! It is light and very easy to use and has just as much power as my Gas Blower does! I am not sure if it goes clear up to 240 mph, but it is way up there! I was very satisfied by buying this product and it being a Craftsman! Awesome price and does a great job! The cord stayed in place the whole time!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman At It's Best!

We wanted to purchase a home with large trees. Large trees equal tons of leaves. As they started to fall a few weeks ago, I realized that my love for raking was simply not there. I went to Sears, found this amazing leaf blower/vac and the rest is history. This thing is amazing! It makes quick work blowing debris. The variable speed lets me move things how I want to, so I am not limited by the blower. The vac does an excellent job mulching and filling up the leaf bag. Also super easy to convert back and forth. This item is a must have for every homeowner.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Works great

I purchased this item to replace a 20 year old blower/vac that eventually burnt up after years of use. I am very pleased how it has worked up to this point. It is much easier to change over from the blower to the vac. The unit's adjustable blower/vac settings works great when you are working in landscaped beds to when you need it at full power. I just spent the weekend cleaning up around our lake cabin in northern MN where every tree has dropped its leaves and it worked great for cleaning them up around the cabin. The place has never looked so nice this time of year. I would recommend this to anyone who wants an easy to convert/reliable leaf blower/vac.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Perfect Leaf Blower

This leaf blower is perfect for me in every way I need to use it. It's light weight so my arms don't get sore and tired over prolonged use, the speeds are crazy fast. My back deck boards swell and trap pine needles that are impossible to get out with a broom, kick this blower up to high and they fly off the porch. Add an extension cord and vacuum up all the leaves around the house.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

variable speed blower

I thought I would try this craftsman because it had variable speed. I like the low speed for getting behind areas.
