The Craftsman Chipper/Shredder Yard Vacuum Picks It Up And Bags It With Power
Whether you’re clearing a putting green, flower bed or cleaning-up after a storm, this powerful 4-N-1 Plus Craftsman chipper/shredder yard vacuum makes it easy to get your yard looking its best. Eliminate back-straining labor and wasted time, cruise easily though the yard picking up twigs, sticks and leaves while turning them into mulch at the same time. And when you're finished, rest assured that the errant yard waste will be neatly packaged in the 2-bushel capacity rear bag.
With a wide 24 inch nozzle, you can get the yard or green cleared in less passes, while the adjustable height ensures you're able to pick-up all kinds of yard waste. An onboard vacuum hose brings a reach you can use to clean under decks, in between tight flower beds and give your vehicle that deep-clean it needs to stay rust-free and last longer. With the right tools, you’re able to do a complete job and get more from what you own.
One of the best features of this chipper/shredder yard vacuum is its anti-clog self-cleaning system that breaks up large clumps of sticks and leaves, eliminating the need to stop your progress until the bag is full, and with a 8:1 reduction ratio, it'll take a lot of ground to fill this bag. No matter how full your bag gets, rest assured that the self propelled, semi-pneumatic wheels will provide the traction and maneuverability you need to move quickly across even the roughest terrain, and get the mulch where you need it. If you're interested in a quick clean without the bag, you can reverse this vacuum into a powerful blower in minutes, too! Versatile, durable and built to last, this Craftsman chipper/shredder yard vacuum will provide the clean lawn and yard you need while eliminating much of the work you used to need to get it.

The primary reason I purchased the Craftsman 190cc* 4-N-1 Plus Chipper/Shredder Yard Vacuum was to save time cleaning the leaves from my yard. After several years of using this product I have a fair idea of its strengths and weaknesses. One thing that comes immediately evident is that this product works well when there is a limited amount of leaves on the ground. In this scenario this product works fine, easily eating up leaves in its path. Alas, the Craftsman 190cc starts to falter when there is even a moderate amount of leaf fall. In this scenario one of the first things to happen is that the small vacuum intake gets clogged up and has to be cleared manually. This is especially a problem when the leaves are wet and stick to the intake opening. Sticks and small branches also present problems for the machine. One area where I found this product to excel on is removing leafs form around the swimming pool. This product does well when the surface under the leaves is concrete, since the leaves don?t have a soft ground to attach to. If I had any suggestion for changes, I would increase the size of the intake so it could handle more leaves. An increase in the machine?s horse power would also be advisable. I like the suction tube attached to the machine, which makes it easy to suck up leaves around hard to negotiate rockwalls. However, like the vacuum the suction tubes frequently becomes clogged when leaf volume increases and are wet. Sometimes the clog is far up the tube and it is difficult to reach and clean out. In conclusion the Craftsman 190cc* 4-N-1 Plus Chipper/Shredder Yard Vacuum is a good concept that is hindered by a somewhat flawed execution. I advise this product used for light to moderate leaf cleanup only.

We purchased the machine brand new in Oct. 2005. The 2005 version of this machine looks very much like the version Sears now sells. The machine continues to perform very well year after year--shredding leaves, sticks, etc. and grinding up branches. It works best when leaves are dry. I work the machine very, very hard--always at full throttle going after the leaves, etc. I have sewed up holes in bag at least once--normal wear and tear. A new replacement bag is very expensive, so that is why I did the sewing. Drive belt has never needed replacing. Drive functions very well. Ear protection is a must, as machine is very loud. Pull cord requires a strong pull to get engine started. It is helpful to have a systematic way of getting the full bag emptied, as one is working with a big load of leaves. So I empty them into a BIG bag--part of the leaves by hand, the rest just dump in. This machine gets the job done
I bought this so i could vacuum of my concrete from the leaves and that. It does a great job, saves me so much time. Its great for vacuuming the leaves of the grass too! Defiantly recommend!
This product has saved me time, I have a lot of trees in my yard, with pine cones and everything else. I went from 2 people raking and bagging for 4 hours to 1 hour. This is the BEST!!!!!! I would truly recommend this item.
Overall this unit works well -- Just plan on disassembling the entire machine if you ever have to replace the drive belt (an item that inevitably will need replacement)! A very POOR design for a machine that otherwise is satisfactory
I got about an hour?s worth of actual run time out the unit before the vacuum nozzle stopped sucking. The vacuum for the hose still worked, but toggling between the vacuum nozzle and the hose did nothing. Even with the Speed Control set at its? lowest setting you almost have to run to keep up with the unit. The Drive Control only had to be slightly depressed for the unit to roll at full speed. The bag unit is something that will give users headaches. The tab that contacts the bag chute is flimsy and probably won?t last long. While the bag is a good idea, it is not a good design. This bag obviously was not intended to be emptied into yard waste bags. Its? design and the instructions for emptying it only allows the contents of the bag to be dumped in a pile on the ground. Replacing the bag on the unit after emptying is complicated and is not a user-friendly task. The bag is made of a material that allows good air flow, but traps shredded material on the inside surface. Some of the stitching on the inside seams of the bag was starting to unravel. The shredder did not shred well, leaving large quantities of leaves un-shredded

This vacuum has been wonderful for cutting our time down from 4 hrs to 2 hrs in the yard blowing and raking leaves. Suction is great! Glad we got it!

Machine is good for about three years. First year,hose will crack in several places. Year two, bag stitching will disintegrate. Year three, recoil cover will split at all bolt on points. Considering cost of parts, this unit is finished. Spend a bit more for a better quality machine.
