"For this price it can't be beat," raved one reviewer.

"Best use is definitely the vacuum/mulching," shared another. "No more fighting with a rake!"

Despite the positive reviews, some shoppers found that the mulch bags got clogged when working with "moist mulched material," which can also affect how heavy this blower feels while in use. Shoppers recommend only vacuuming up a small amount of leaves at time if they're wet, and periodically emptying the mulch bag to avoid clogging.
