I was tired of raking leaves and asked for a Cub Cadet for my 69th birthday. What a happy day it was, and continues to be, with my Cub Cadet!

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

Does What It Is Supposed To Do.
I received the unit in a semi-assembled condition which was expected.Putting it together the rest of the way was easy.After putting the oil and gas in it,it started okay. The pull-cord handle position is a bit awkward for me to use.The machine does a good job of picking up leaves and does fill the bag up pretty quickly if you have a substantial leaf cover on the ground.Dumping the bag and refitting it to reuse is a bit of a chore.The vacuum hose attachment works well but is kind of chintzy,... more

It Meets My Expectations... Which Were High!
I've used my Cub Cadet (1.5") 159cc Chipper Shredder Vacuum three times. It meets my expectations, which were high, and is a real time-saver! Just wish it could pick up acorns, but I knew it couldn't when I bought it. As far as I know, there are no Chipper Shredder Vacuum's on the market able to pick up nuts.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Fast, High Quality
Cons: Heavy

Faulty Part
I have had this machine for just this fall and winter season here in Texas. I have two large red oaks in my yard and they produce a mountain of leaves. This machine cut my chores by 75%, but the plastic part that supports the bag to the handles broke after just a few uses.

The company sent me a replacement bag and sure enough it lasted just a few uses also. The part is about 75% separated now but not totally broken into two pieces. Now that the season is over I now have a bag that will not... more

Mixed Review
After reading many reviews, I purchased this vacuum. The pros were that it's easy to assemble, it started on the first pull every time and the bag is easy to empty. The cons were it's heavy to push around on hilly terrain (I'd try the self propelled version instead). This vacuum works great if you go slow and there aren't many leaves. I would recommend it if you have a flat yard and are going to use it every couple of days.

Once you get a pile of leaves this thing will make you insane. ... more
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Heavy, Use lots of gas, clogs. Especially the hose attachment.

Hose Clogs
I cleaned my backyard this evening and the hose kept clogging up inside and I would have to beat it with my hand to get it to continue down the hose. I spent probably about 25% of my time unclogging.

Also, I had to keep re-clamping the hose on both ends because they would come off. The hose clamp connection on the handle seems to not have enough for the hose to go onto and get a good clamp.

Its a pain needless to say. It's not a bad machine but I think the vacuum hose part of it could... more

Recent Purchase
I hesitated purchasing last year, so I wanted to be prepared for Fall this year. The leaves have not started to fall yet, but I have used my cub cadet to suck-up leaves and twigs that drop onto the driveway. So far, I am impressed. I live in the city and have a city-sized lot. I have used the Cub to suck-up the mess left at the curb. It works well here too.

Most importantly, I ordered my Cub on a Thursday and it was delivered on Monday! The freight carrier was amazing and worked with my... more

Goodbye Leaves.
Works very well esp using the hose in flowerbeds. Does clog in the hose at times, but nothing is perfect. Wished I would have bought one years ago!

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.
