No More Back Aches
Spent many hours researching ways to make the fall leaf process less grueling. I found The Cub Cadet Chipper Shredder Vacuum online at Power Equipment Direct. I asked for it as a gift for my 69th. Birthday and it arrived in the mail! It is my favorite possession!
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations

Machine Needs To Be Self-propelled
The machine is heavy and hard to push. Future models should be self-propelled.

Easy To Assemble And Handle
It's great, and it's easy to handle. It started immediately. The delivery was on time. I was notified in advance.

I would like to have a service manual, as I am a mechanic. I built cars and have all the tools. One person in your service department stated that he could provide me with service advice when needed. He was very polite.

Cub Cadet is made by Yard Man. This not a complaint.

"I used it twice, and it did a great job. My driveway is 13 feet wide and 144 feet long. The paved pad from my garage is 24 feet wide by 42 feet. I have a large patio and a front walk to the door. We live in a community with many large trees. We are in need of a shredder/vacuum. I believe we have one."

Works Great.
I should have got this vac years ago. works great on leaves and cleaning up the trimmings from the shrubs and grinds sticks like nothing. chops everything so fine its a space saver when cleaning up. starts first pull every time. only let down is when it runs out of gas because I'm not paying attention due to ease of use.

Good Quality
I have several large trees, but on a city lot. This unit works well for me, but may not be so great on an acreage. I also found the same unit for a lower price about 2 weeks after mine was delivered.

The hose feature works well, but is hard to get in and out of the stored position. It has also clogged a few times, but is easy to get cleared.

Great Machine!
We've only used our Cub Cadet a few times but it has lived up to its reputation. Sucks up the leaves like a pro and clears a 40X100 foot area in minutes.

Be sure and wear a dust mask since the shredder creates a lot of dust that comes through the bag.
Bag is easy enough to empty but is not the best quality. It is made of a felt like material. We will go ahead and order a second back since this one will eventually wear.

Overall, we'd give it a 4.5 out of 5!
Pros: Easy To Use, Features, Fast, Cleans An Area With One Sweep

Good Machine But Inferior Hose
I just got it a month ago--works great--unfortunately I used it in colder weather which seems to affect the hose material, as it cracked a couple of times while I was bending it. I plugged the tear with duct tape to finish my vacuuming, I have not had time to follow up with the company yet--hope they will see fit to replace as I've only used it for 5 hours

Great Vacuum. Needs A Different Bag
This product is a great vacuum, but the bag is hard to manage. Difficult to empty and difficult to keep closed. I bought this to pick up leaves and acorns off of artificial turf, and it does a pretty good job. Other than man handling the bag, it's awesome.
Pros: Durable, Price, Reliable
Cons: Bag Is Difficult To Manage

Great Machine
It works great for me. Saves a lot of time on yard work. The only problem I have is the bag. After using it for a while the folds where it closes leek pieces of leaves. The bag needs to be redesigned with some air vents so there is not so much air pressure at the folded area. I still think great...

Not Reliable
We recently purchased this machine for leaves and small twigs in our yard. It was easy to assemble however I could tell right away it was not a quality product. The connections and parts were flimsy.

Turns out I was correct. It does not have much suction, the cloth bag allows a huge amount of dust to be released, and is very difficult to empty. The hose part clogs quickly and has very little suction. Overall, very disappointed with this product, would NOT recommend.
