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.

Mike@ Busted Knuckle Garage..
I ordered this machine because I am 66 and it took me 3 days to rake out a section behind the shop. So I decided to spoil myself with this nice vacuum cleaner.The leaves on 15 oak trees will really test it out. I will write later to tell you how it does. I also have Cub Cadet riding mower, which is a very well built machine. I expect the same out of this yard vacuam THANK YOU

I really like my leaf vacuum. It saves me a lot of time and wear and tear on my body from raking. I have a very large oak tree in my yard and it keeps me very busy.

Tighten'er Up
When I first opened the carton several small nuts and bolts were loose in the box. These were later used to secure the handle. The engine has enough power to do the job, but the handheld vacuum doesn't like to suck up wet leaves.

Dry is fine, but the wet ones clog the intake and hose. The plastic front vacuum piece had a missing screw, so I ended up buying one and securing it. Both ends of the handheld vacuum had to have the hose clamps tightened up after they separated from the unit.

Not Totaly Satisfied
The machine does okay, but the hose is a real pain. My handle just keeps coming off because of where they drilled and mounted it to the end.

I'll repair this by moving it forward toward the end. I also thought the length of hose part was 7", but as it turned out, the hole thing is 7" including the ends as a part does not reach in our flower beds.

Not totally satisfied in them wanting another $127.00 for an extension. I think for what this machine costs, it should have a longer hose.

"Well as said above not satisfied with this hose crap I'm dealing with I'm not giving them another dime with mtd the people that answer the call in number. the machine needs at least 4-6 feet of reach from the machine all the hose is good for getting up against the house or fence could get to the back of the shrubs and flower gardens without a hell of fight. and now I find it at home depot 529.00"

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
