The Cub Cadet CSV050 chipper shredder vacuum is your multi-task tool for a cleaner yard. This all-in-one vacuum will not only vacuum up lawn debris, but it also chips branches and shreds leaves.

The Cub Cadet CSV050 is ideal for clearing and crushing debris from your yard. You can create rich organic mulch that nourish your soil and help prevent erosion. The on-board wood chipper can handle twigs and branches up to 1-1/2 inches in diameter quicker than ever before.

Worked Great At First, But Then The Problems Started
I've been using my Cub Cadet Leaf Vacuum for about 2 months now. I read as many reviews as I could before purchasing. Decided to go with it over more expensive brands mainly because of price and hopes that some of the bad reviews weren't true. When I first got the unit and started using it, it worked great. Sucked up leaves, sticks, pecans, and some acorns. The onboard chipper works great on small sticks and limbs (never tried anything over 1/2" diameter).

First problem I encountered... 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

Not Much More Than A Lawn Mower
Although it did pick up leaves the small sticks stayed on the ground. If I put small sticks in the chute it did chop them up but for that I could use my troybilt wood chipper. The leaves that were picked up weren't chopped as fine as I needed. It really was no different than my lawn mower. Because they weren't chopped up the bag fills really fast and in an average size yard you would have to stop every 5 to 10 minutes. Also it won't pick up wet leaves. Stay with a good lawn mower for less... more

Cons: Expensive

"Their site was good, the service fast but they appear to have limited merchandise. Supposedly they only had one or two cub cadet choppers. Don't know if they are a big company or small mail order business akin to craigslist ."

Ok For The Price - Needs Improvements
For the price of this piece of equipment it performs relatively well. There are some problems with the hose clogging up with leaves. It definitely needs some sort of a brake system. The instructions on the operation of this unit is poorly written. I had to look up the comments by other owners to get the real deal on this unit.
Pros: Price, Durable, Reliable, Easy To Store
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Use, Bad Instructions

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

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.
