Product Description

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.

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.

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!

GREAT performance & a REAL BACK & TIME SAVER!!

This lawn vacuum & chipper from Craftsman is JUST type of machine I needed to deal with ALL of the trees that surround our property, PLUS the neighbors leaves that end up in our yard due to the typical wind flow.I have a VERY bad back that makes doing raking (and even leaf blowing) a VERY painful experience.We have a 1/3 of an acre backed by woods that have trees that are 60+ yrs old, which I LOVE but the cleanup each fall was a daily , painful chore for a solid month or more.I tried to suck it up but I couldn't do it no more.I had seen this at Sears a few times and finally decided to go for it.SOOOOOOO Glad I did.This sucks up both wet and dry leaves & twigs with EASE.The bag is the RIGHT size so the average person can remove it and empty it (if it were bigger, most people wouldn't be able to manage it due to awkwardness & weigh depending on leaf wetness.) It starts in 30 degree weather in 3-4 pulls(thanks to a manual choke..A++++) and after it's been started for the 1st time, it's starts the rest of he time in one pull.In warmer weather it, cold starts by the 2nd pull.The machine is easy to maneuver & the self propel mode is nice when the pain level is higher. My only complaint on this machine is the fact the 2 tabs for emptying the bag came off after 2 weeks. Sears, as usual rectified the situation immediately & painlessly .So JUST MAKE SURE THOSE 2 TWIST TABS ARE TIGHT EACH & EVERY USE!!! Also, the pull start could use a bit more..ommmph so either changing the pull start ratio or making an electric start option / kit to be had would be great.This machine would have gotten 5 stars if it wasn't for the 2 twist tab thing(as it seems to be an issue..maybe offer extra tabs as Craftsman has done on other machines I've had in the past that had wingnuts etc. that were prone to loss due to vibration/ use??) So if you have a lot of trees on or surrounding your property and either can't or don't want to deal with the daily hassle ..this machine get the job done with EASE..WELL Worth the money just for having less pain & more time to sspend with my 4 yr old : ) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!Thanks Sears for having a machine that other haven't thought of and a great price!A+++++++

Hard worker that is a breeze to use almost ready to go right out of the box

The chipper works great on branches up to an inch or so. You will also use about a third of the yard and leaf bags. Started right up for me , but its not like starting a lawn mower. Takes a long pull to get it going which took me a little to get use to.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Dependable, great suction, fast clean up

Being leaf season, I'll give you the pros and con. Motor quick to start in cold weather is a 10, self propelled dependable is a 10, but if you bump the self propelled speed control, when not running? The only big issues, I've come across, Hose clamp on the Wand, the bag could use a skid plate, the felt bag I can see maybe an issue with. I'm enjoying the time it saves me and the final product it produces, you'd be surprized how much this baby, will hold. Keep you all informed on how well it pro forms.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

bummed

bought this vac, was almost 800$ got it for 580$ was dissaponted, hose was assembled wrong,so nozzle would not stay on even if i wasnt useing it.its only held on with a couple cheap radiatore clamps.called sears took almost 1/2hr on phone to have some one say bring hose back. then hr, to just swap it out, also the snap on the bag broke after only two uses,after two days of learning curves and fixing all the inconviences of it . it works good. does use alot of gas. and i dont think i get 1 bag of mulched leaves to the 8 bags racked like the claim. more like 3.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Ran for twenty-five minutes!

Out of box set up real easy and nice. Ran it for twenty-five minutes before what appears to be a broken belt. Call customer service and was told return it for a new one or bring in for service. The bag is too small. I am getting the same amount of leaves picked up with my bagging lawn mower. if you have a reasonable size lawn and many leaves this is not the one for you. Never tried the hose attachment, it did seem clumsy hanging off the side of the unit. A real disappointment overall.
