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.

False claim of speed and power
This unit is not even close to what the mfg claims (240 mph). I got the unit online. The box was small - that got me suspicious... after I used it yesterday it realized that this unit does not supply the power that it's supposed to. It barely blows the leaves and grass clippings off the pavement. I had to keep it really close to the ground to clean the driveway. I used to take me 10 minutes with my old blower. With this one I spent more than 30 minutes. It's going back to Sears today!

Good for the price

I had a Toro, it wasn't near as good as this one. I like the steel propeller, mulch leaves better, less chance of damage. It doesn't a decent job for a electric blower. Vibration isn't real noticeable, can be used with one hand. The cord is not very long as it states in the spec., not a big deal but it would be nice for the cord to be longer. It blows really well on pavement, grass isn't quiet as good, however for the price it's a good buy. I tried mulching, it doesn't do as well as blowing but it does mulch decently. The mulch bag makes it harder to use, it maybe me but i never was able to get a good grip on the blower with the mulch attachment. I'll try it again and update my review. Other than the mulch function it's a good blower, i would recommend it. It serves my needs, if you don't need a gas blower and don't have a large area it will do most any decent jobs.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Nice light duty blower

If youre wanting a hurricane, this isnt for you. This leaf blower works great for blowing things off of your side walks and driveways but struggles to blow things out of the grass. If you take the tip off it will help move more air but its still nothing compared to a good gas powered unit. If you dont expect this unit to blow heavy amounts of leaves out of thick grass, you'll be a happy camper.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Power and Ease of Use

This unit is a blower and a vacuum which will make yard clean up very easy. It is a powerful unit and can move a lot of air, which means a lot of leaves and small twigs. I even used it to blow years worth of pine needles out from under a tree.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I bought this product as a Christmas gift for my father. He has already used it and he loves it. This is perfect for him to use around the house and yard. It is lightweight yet powerful enough to get the jobs he needs done. I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for an affordable and good quality product. Besides, you can never go wrong with Craftsman!!

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
