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

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"

Good Entry Level Vac For Small Properties.
NOZZLE: 4/5 Works excellent on removing leaves from hard surfaces such as driveways, patios, sidewalks. Does a good job removing leaves from grass. Will suck up small clippings from evergreen hedges & tiny sticks, but that's it

HOSE: 2/5: Clogs easily because hose diameter is so narrow. Need to be careful making contact with the muffler which is nearby.

MULCHING: 5/5: Reduces debris to very fine particles. Better than some Billy Goat vacs!

OPERATION: 4/5: Simple,... more

Works well. Good for a standard size yard. Emptying the bag is not very easy. A lot of wasted time emptying.

Great When It Runs
Starts up cold with one pull. However, when I turn off to empty bag or refuel, I will nor re-start. I have to wait until it is cold again, then I starts on one pull. I have located a service facility and will get it there soon.

Functionally, when running it's great! Cuts branches like butter and has a strong suction. easy to push once you have the wheel height adjusted. Overall build feels solid. I'm hoping the starting problem can be diagnosed.

Delivery was a pain. I had to wait all... more

Weak Bag Clip
This machine is about as advertised: vacuums leaves from lawn with ease, hose is somewhat awkward to use but suction is pretty strong and chipper is very good for inch or less diameter branches. My problem is with the bag. Perhaps I overloaded it before dumping the contents (my bad) and it exceeded the recommended weight/contents limit but after three very long uses of the machine the clip separated from the bag and now I have to purchase a replacement bag assembly for $115. While I am... more

Great Machine With Some Design Flaws
The Cub Cadet is great at picking up leaves! It makes cleaning up all the oak leaves in our backyard a quick & easy job. It mulches them so fine that fewer leave bags are needed, too.

It works really well & was all we hoped it would be EXCEPT it is nearly impossible to start! The rope starter was so hard to pull that only a super strong person can start it! Then, after starting it only four times, the rope frayed & broke! Also, the exhaust is situated right beside... more

Leaf Vacuum
I have a lot of leaves in my yard. I ordered the vacuum because we have to bag leaves where I live. I found the vacuum did not work well in this sort with a pile of leaves. I had to cut the vacuum off and unclog underneath, but once I spread the leaves out it seemed to work much better. Also the vacuum is not picking up small twigs as well as I expected. Twigs seem to just block it. I haven't been able to get the hose to work. I have only used it once. I can rake where I would normally use the... more

Great
I hate doing leaves and this saved me alot of time. Strong suction and large bag.

Grinds the leaves up a little bit and saves some space. Didn't use the hose very much, it sucks up the dirt and mulch from the flower beds, I found it easier the blow the leaves out of the beds on the grass then suck them up.

Hard pull start, wish it was a little easier.
