The Craftsman Chipper/Shredder Yard Vacuum Picks It Up And Bags It With Power

Whether you’re clearing a putting green, flower bed or cleaning-up after a storm, this powerful 4-N-1 Plus Craftsman chipper/shredder yard vacuum makes it easy to get your yard looking its best. Eliminate back-straining labor and wasted time, cruise easily though the yard picking up twigs, sticks and leaves while turning them into mulch at the same time. And when you're finished, rest assured that the errant yard waste will be neatly packaged in the 2-bushel capacity rear bag.

With a wide 24 inch nozzle, you can get the yard or green cleared in less passes, while the adjustable height ensures you're able to pick-up all kinds of yard waste. An onboard vacuum hose brings a reach you can use to clean under decks, in between tight flower beds and give your vehicle that deep-clean it needs to stay rust-free and last longer. With the right tools, you’re able to do a complete job and get more from what you own.

One of the best features of this chipper/shredder yard vacuum is its anti-clog self-cleaning system that breaks up large clumps of sticks and leaves, eliminating the need to stop your progress until the bag is full, and with a 8:1 reduction ratio, it'll take a lot of ground to fill this bag. No matter how full your bag gets, rest assured that the self propelled, semi-pneumatic wheels will provide the traction and maneuverability you need to move quickly across even the roughest terrain, and get the mulch where you need it. If you're interested in a quick clean without the bag, you can reverse this vacuum into a powerful blower in minutes, too! Versatile, durable and built to last, this Craftsman chipper/shredder yard vacuum will provide the clean lawn and yard you need while eliminating much of the work you used to need to get it.

Will pick up damp leaves, EFFECTIVELY...
I don't have the self propelled model so I am basing this review on my model which is identical in every way except the drive system. I read many reviews and was a bit surprised at the complaints regarding the performance of this machine and wet leaves and intended to wait for my leaves to be dry before using it. I went out and used my machine on Nov 8th, live outside Chicago and own a Maple tree in front of my house. Anyone knows these trees are famous for late dropping of its leaves. Currently my tree has dropped maybe 25% and currently they are falling like snowflakes. I went out early this morning before 9am and my grass was covered with dew and parts frost, so they were clearly damp and because the wheels were soaked and covered with the leaves they rolled over. First off I believe the vacuum height has to be set correctly for efficient cleaning. I set my machine so its as close to the leaves but not so close that I push them rather then pick them up. I also cut my grass a week before the leaves started dropping as I believe this also helps the effectiveness of this machine. I usually keep my grass Kentucky Blue around 3-3 1/2 inches during the growing season and as it reaches fall I cut it back to 2 inches which I did last week. My machine picked up pretty much every single leaf it passed over leaving a scragglier hear and there. I went over my neighbors house which their side and my side meet, and their lawn was much higher, 3 inches or higher and though I didn't change the height setting it still sucked up the damp leaves. Granted it was harder to push thru higher grass at the setting I chose because the nozzle was pushing the grass somewhat, but still sucked them up easily. I can't understand why people are having an issue, unless they are down right soaked and have the nozzle too high. I also cleaned up my lawn which is 2000sq feet that I know for a fact as I had sod installed this past spring. It was covered 40% where you could NOT see a blade of grass and I didn't have to empty the bag except when I was done. It almost all fit into a single brown lawn bag, but I stopped short about 10 inches from the top because the bag was getting too heavy from so much of the damp leaves I crammed in their. I was overly impressed at the dust this machine turned the leaves into, damp and all.. I filled a 2nd brown bag 1/3 full. I will say that the machine was starting to tip backwards and left standing it was gonna fall back on the bag, thats how full it was.. Its currently 35 deg and it took 4 pulls to get it started. I did edge my lawn last week and I set the nozzle at the lowest setting and went down my sidewalk and not a blade of grass was left behind. This does a tremendous job at cleaning driveways and sidewalks. I would recommend this machine but pay attention to the setting of the nozzle and grass height for best efficiency.

Did not perform well
I have a lawn with lots of leaves and even more gum balls. After reading the manual I was ready to use the product. I was totally disappointed. If the leaves are completely dry the Yard Vacuum does well. If there is any moister on the grass or leaves it's another matter. The Yard Vacuum does not do a good job with Sweet Gum Balls. You have to go over the lawn several times to do what a good lawn mower will do in one pass. I returned the Yard Vacuum to Sears. This is the only item I've ever returned to Sears in over 40 years as a loyal customer. Another problem, it will jam on anything larger than a pencil.

Great vacuum!

I manage a small storage facility and we were using a leaf blower originally to clean the asphalt of our site but found that it was blowing dirt under our outside unit doors. The owner had one of these that was from his own personal home that he brought it for us to try out. It is FANTASTIC at vacuuming up the site, it gets not only the leaves on the site but small gravel as well. We do not use the chipper, shredder so I cannot review that portion of the unit but the vacuum is awesome!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

1999 Craftsman lawn vac

Bought this unit in 1999. Still using it and it works great. Has a 4.5 Tecumset engine that is still going and does not burn oil. The unit sat up for two years and upon starting, oil came out of many gaskets. Used oil treatment to stop oil leaks and no leaks. The only complaint is that the primer bulb does not work and I have to put a little gas in the carb and pull the cord. Usually starts in two to three pulls.The bag is felt and is a lot sturdier than the ones in most of the one star reviews. I guess these units are like people, they don't make them like they used to. No other parts had broken on this unit. Changed the oil and plugs regularly and the machine keeps on sucking up leaves. Saves on buying mulch for the garden. This unit will pickup small twigs, sweet gum balls (if you get after them after emptying the bag). No acorns are picked up (sometime they are picked up, but roll out after a couple of minutes. No biggie the squirrel usually get them. My unit does not have a hose attachment. I think this is unnecessary. Below they are asking for a recommendation. I cannot attest to the new machines, but this 1999 model is A-1 and it only cost $390.00. If I have to replace the bag at today's price, would not be cost effective. My unit came with a chute to replace the bag. I guess I will be using this and just mulch the leave and leave them on the lawn. Or go in a circle and pile them up in the middle of the yard and then pick them up and put them in the garden. Even the five stars applies to the older unit.

Great product for yard cleanup

We bought this yard vac to clean up our backyard which has 13 oak trees. This year has been the worst fall and the yard has inches of leaves to clean up for spring. This started up first pull and runs like a champ. It picks up layers of leaves and small sticks at a time and does a great job of mulching. I have owned 1300$ yard vacs before and this one performs just as well. Only issue we have is the size of the bag. If it could be bigger it would allow us to work longer in between stops. The hose is kind of cumbersome but does allow us to easily get into flower beds without damaging the plants. I would recommend this product to anyone with a normal yard size but not to someone with bigger yards over an acre. It would take to long with the small bag.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great piece of equipment

I usually don't do reviews, but I read a lot of the other reviews on his piece of equipment and I was kind of skeptical about going and purchasing it. I watched a few you tube videos and seen the machine operate as well and decided that I would give it a try because I have a lot of shrubbery that gets piled up with leaves and it is such a pain to clean out the beds every year and with this vacuum having the vac hose on it, I thought it might work well for me. I am a general contractor in Florida, so I deal with a lot of equipment. So I purchased the machine online and did a pick up in the store. It was really fast. I went to the house and it only took a few minutes to put it together, put in the oil, gas and have this thing running. It started on the first pull and my five year old was running it up and down the driveway sucking up all the water oak leaves that were every where and it worked great. We emptied the bag when it got full(very easy) and began vacuuming some more. So then I got into the shrub beds with the vac hose and it worked great. I will say that the small twigs that it picks up will turn sideways in the tube and clog it up occasionally, but for the job it was doing and the speed of picking up the leaves, I was extremely happy that I would not have to drag the leaves out from around all the close shrubs with a rake and then pick them up. I would like to have one with a longer hose, but I will take what I can get. The hose was kinked a little when I took it out of the box, so I just loosened the hose clamps and repositioned the hose on the adapters, so that the kinks were on the outside of the hose and not the inside. So within an hour, I had already emptied the bag three times and had picked up a lot of leaves and mulched them for my back yard beds. If you are hunting a leaf vacuum that takes all the work out of it, then this might not be the right equipment for you and there is more expensive models that will ease the job, but if your hunting a piece of equipment that will help you at at a reasonable price then this is the right one for you. Hope this helps anyone looking to purchase this machine. I look forward to using it tomorrow and if my experience changes, then so will my review. But for now I am happy with it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Yard Vacuum Saves Time and Effort

This is a true yard vacuum. It performs great, picking up and mulching all leaves in its path. It can be a challenge and a little dusty transferring the mulch from the bag to a yard bag for disposal, but it is worth it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Investment!

Performed better then I expected. It will pick up wet leaves you just need to adjust the height setting. What use to take me 12 hours to do I now get my yard done in about two hours. The dust kick back from the leaf bag is bad so I recommend wearing a mask when doing the leaves. Btw, the shredder works great too.

Questionable Utility

After two years, the flexible chuting split and while duct tape helps, it finally failed; which was not all that big a problem because the vacuum hose became plugged with every little twig it sucked up. I finally gave up and just rake the leaves and twigs into a pile and suck them up with the front lawn nozzle. The throttle will not hold a setting unless its wide open or idle...constantly resetting it. Finally, the bag developed holes and the stitching at the connector came apart after 4 years of use. The cost of another bag assembly is nearly half the cost of an entire new yard vac...how stupid. If Sears can't make parts available at a reasonable price, buy this kind of machine elsewhere.

Terrible Quality Control

I was incredibly excited to a self-propelled leaf vac after having one w/out for more than a decade. While the self-propelled is nice, this thing came out broken. The throttle cable is broken and/or disconnected that hose and nozzle keep falling apart. Considering Sears took an extra month to get this to me, I would've expected it to work completely.

Great leaf clean-up tool

I'd been using a *1989* version of this machine each fall, until it finally gave out this fall. Love the 2 speed self-propel feature of this new version, and the vacuum hose, as well. However, I'll probably only attach the hose when I actually intend to use it. Only time will tell if this new version will be as durable as my old yard vac, but they are pretty similar, except for the engine. I tried this new yard vac's lawn nozzle and hose on some wet leaves, and it seems to deal better with them than my old vac. Just as with my old vac, this machine does a great job of grinding up leaves, which I then use as mulch; the ground leaves really enrich the soil over time, better than other mulch types!

I would recommend this product to a friend.
