Product Description

The Craftsman 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-in-1 Craftsman 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. A detachable 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 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. And 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 yard vacuum system will provide the clean lawn and yard you need while eliminating much of the work you used to need to get it.

Will pick up damp leaves, EFFECTIVELY...
I don't have the self propelled model so I am basing this review on my model which is identical in every way except the drive system. I read many reviews and was a bit surprised at the complaints regarding the performance of this machine and wet leaves and intended to wait for my leaves to be dry before using it. I went out and used my machine on Nov 8th, live outside Chicago and own a Maple tree in front of my house. Anyone knows these trees are famous for late dropping of its leaves. Currently my tree has dropped maybe 25% and currently they are falling like snowflakes. I went out early this morning before 9am and my grass was covered with dew and parts frost, so they were clearly damp and because the wheels were soaked and covered with the leaves they rolled over. First off I believe the vacuum height has to be set correctly for efficient cleaning. I set my machine so its as close to the leaves but not so close that I push them rather then pick them up. I also cut my grass a week before the leaves started dropping as I believe this also helps the effectiveness of this machine. I usually keep my grass Kentucky Blue around 3-3 1/2 inches during the growing season and as it reaches fall I cut it back to 2 inches which I did last week. My machine picked up pretty much every single leaf it passed over leaving a scragglier hear and there. I went over my neighbors house which their side and my side meet, and their lawn was much higher, 3 inches or higher and though I didn't change the height setting it still sucked up the damp leaves. Granted it was harder to push thru higher grass at the setting I chose because the nozzle was pushing the grass somewhat, but still sucked them up easily. I can't understand why people are having an issue, unless they are down right soaked and have the nozzle too high. I also cleaned up my lawn which is 2000sq feet that I know for a fact as I had sod installed this past spring. It was covered 40% where you could NOT see a blade of grass and I didn't have to empty the bag except when I was done. It almost all fit into a single brown lawn bag, but I stopped short about 10 inches from the top because the bag was getting too heavy from so much of the damp leaves I crammed in their. I was overly impressed at the dust this machine turned the leaves into, damp and all.. I filled a 2nd brown bag 1/3 full. I will say that the machine was starting to tip backwards and left standing it was gonna fall back on the bag, thats how full it was.. Its currently 35 deg and it took 4 pulls to get it started. I did edge my lawn last week and I set the nozzle at the lowest setting and went down my sidewalk and not a blade of grass was left behind. This does a tremendous job at cleaning driveways and sidewalks. I would recommend this machine but pay attention to the setting of the nozzle and grass height for best efficiency.

Did not perform well
I have a lawn with lots of leaves and even more gum balls. After reading the manual I was ready to use the product. I was totally disappointed. If the leaves are completely dry the Yard Vacuum does well. If there is any moister on the grass or leaves it's another matter. The Yard Vacuum does not do a good job with Sweet Gum Balls. You have to go over the lawn several times to do what a good lawn mower will do in one pass. I returned the Yard Vacuum to Sears. This is the only item I've ever returned to Sears in over 40 years as a loyal customer. Another problem, it will jam on anything larger than a pencil.

Yard Vacuum Saves Time and Effort

This is a true yard vacuum. It performs great, picking up and mulching all leaves in its path. It can be a challenge and a little dusty transferring the mulch from the bag to a yard bag for disposal, but it is worth it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Investment!

Performed better then I expected. It will pick up wet leaves you just need to adjust the height setting. What use to take me 12 hours to do I now get my yard done in about two hours. The dust kick back from the leaf bag is bad so I recommend wearing a mask when doing the leaves. Btw, the shredder works great too.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

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.

Terrible Quality Control

I was incredibly excited to a self-propelled leaf vac after having one w/out for more than a decade. While the self-propelled is nice, this thing came out broken. The throttle cable is broken and/or disconnected that hose and nozzle keep falling apart. Considering Sears took an extra month to get this to me, I would've expected it to work completely.

Great leaf clean-up tool

I'd been using a *1989* version of this machine each fall, until it finally gave out this fall. Love the 2 speed self-propel feature of this new version, and the vacuum hose, as well. However, I'll probably only attach the hose when I actually intend to use it. Only time will tell if this new version will be as durable as my old yard vac, but they are pretty similar, except for the engine. I tried this new yard vac's lawn nozzle and hose on some wet leaves, and it seems to deal better with them than my old vac. Just as with my old vac, this machine does a great job of grinding up leaves, which I then use as mulch; the ground leaves really enrich the soil over time, better than other mulch types!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Was not to impressed with this Yard Vacuums Quaity

Only have used this Craftsman Yard Vacuum 2 times and I have had the bag begin to rip near connection to vacuum fitting. The Vacuum hose came undone and began to tear where the hose and tube clamp together, and one of the tips that turn to close the bag at the bottom popped off. So after having this Vacuum for a little over a week I am requesting a new bag, other than these flaws so far it has the power to Vac, mulch, and chip; although I do not like how sometimes the ground Vac switches over to the hose Vac if you go over an unsmooth surface. Other than those things this Vac is fair. If these problems get corrected by the designer than this Vac could very well be great.

One of the best lawn equipment purchases I've made.

Every time I use this lawn vac, I always say how much I like it! It really does do an excellent job. I have oak and maple trees and it picks up the leaves beautifully.

It`s just Good not great !!!

I bought it thinking it would help with all the leaves but after a 1/2 hour I found it to be more work then if I just raked them in a pile and put them on a tarp and pulled them to the woods.

Workhorse machine

Engine size (larger than competitors) key to performance. This has the power needed to vacuum big quantities of leaves (reasonably dry and without too many large twigs/branches) very well. Very best way to deal with leaves if you want them for compost because they are shred to small pieces and therefore greatly reduced in volume and much faster in decomposing. Words to the wise: buy it its ability to vacuum leaves through the large nozzle in the front of the machine; the hose vacuum clogs quickly and is bulky so I leave it off the machine. The chipper is also useless as it clogs quickly, too. I haven't used the new blower attachment, but can't imagine how you can manage where what you blows goes. When you purchase, be sure the rear wheels are free-wheeling (don't make a grinding noise when you push the machine manually with motor off and that they don't grab or lock when you pull it backwards manually); this is the biggest problem I've had. There's a lot of wear and tear in the use of the machine, so I strongly recommend purchasing the extended service agreement (and I'm now trying the in home version to avoid the trouble of transporting the machine.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
