      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. 

      • Briggs & Stratton® 190cc* 6.75 torque engine Powerful, long-lasting engine life for maximum performance

      Great piece of equipment
      I usually don't do reviews, but I read a lot of the other reviews on his piece of equipment and I was kind of skeptical about going and purchasing it. I watched a few you tube videos and seen the machine operate as well and decided that I would give it a try because I have a lot of shrubbery that gets piled up with leaves and it is such a pain to clean out the beds every year and with this vacuum having the vac hose on it, I thought it might work well for me. I am a general contractor in Florida, so I deal with a lot of equipment. So I purchased the machine online and did a pick up in the store. It was really fast. I went to the house and it only took a few minutes to put it together, put in the oil, gas and have this thing running. It started on the first pull and my five year old was running it up and down the driveway sucking up all the water oak leaves that were every where and it worked great. We emptied the bag when it got full(very easy) and began vacuuming some more. So then I got into the shrub beds with the vac hose and it worked great. I will say that the small twigs that it picks up will turn sideways in the tube and clog it up occasionally, but for the job it was doing and the speed of picking up the leaves, I was extremely happy that I would not have to drag the leaves out from around all the close shrubs with a rake and then pick them up. I would like to have one with a longer hose, but I will take what I can get. The hose was kinked a little when I took it out of the box, so I just loosened the hose clamps and repositioned the hose on the adapters, so that the kinks were on the outside of the hose and not the inside. So within an hour, I had already emptied the bag three times and had picked up a lot of leaves and mulched them for my back yard beds. If you are hunting a leaf vacuum that takes all the work out of it, then this might not be the right equipment for you and there is more expensive models that will ease the job, but if your hunting a piece of equipment that will help you at at a reasonable price then this is the right one for you. Hope this helps anyone looking to purchase this machine. I look forward to using it tomorrow and if my experience changes, then so will my review. But for now I am happy with it.

      Questionable Utility
      After two years, the flexible chuting split and while duct tape helps, it finally failed; which was not all that big a problem because the vacuum hose became plugged with every little twig it sucked up. I finally gave up and just rake the leaves and twigs into a pile and suck them up with the front lawn nozzle. The throttle will not hold a setting unless its wide open or idle...constantly resetting it. Finally, the bag developed holes and the stitching at the connector came apart after 4 years of use. The cost of another bag assembly is nearly half the cost of an entire new yard vac...how stupid. If Sears can't make parts available at a reasonable price, buy this kind of machine elsewhere.

      Machine still going strong after 9 years of service!

      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 would recommend this product to a friend.

      Have 4 Oak trees in my yard. Needed more than a leaf blower. Seems to fit the bill.

      Bad design for maintenance purposes

      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

      Disappointment in performance and quality of Model #77013.

      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

      Cut leaf gathering time in half!

      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!

      Self destructs

      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.

      wonderful

      I have owned one of these for a number of years. I use it to clean out my pool area where the leaf blower is useless (brick wall). I love this vac. It's reliable and lightweight and even sucks up wet leaves. Those bashing it probably have bought it for the wrong application. Highly recommended!
