I'm an Executive Gardener, Contractor, and Landscape Architect and I love Craftsman Tools in my kit. I bought this blower because I have a few clients in cities that don't allow blowers over 55db, and no professional grade gas blower goes that low yet. Sears lists this one as 54.4 and I keep the spec sheet in my truck. For an electric blower it has plenty of power for residential purposes and I really like the variable speed for when I'm in tight spaces or finishing a pile. It has better control than my gas blower. It's relatively light weight and the suction works well too. Still, I am greatly disappointed in the cord attachment function. Sears lists that it comes with a 7' (foot) cord and a cord lock. WRONG!!! The cord on mine is only 4" (inches), which isn't even enough to tie a not with, and there is no cord lock. The major down fall of electric devices, is that the cord is cumbersome, catches and falls out. Sears BLEW it on this one. I make due by wrapping the cord through the handle for now but this too get irritating during use. It's a good tool, but Sears needs to do a better job on proofing the text of the items they advertise, for both technical correctness and grammar.

False claim of speed and power
This unit is not even close to what the mfg claims (240 mph). I got the unit online. The box was small - that got me suspicious... after I used it yesterday it realized that this unit does not supply the power that it's supposed to. It barely blows the leaves and grass clippings off the pavement. I had to keep it really close to the ground to clean the driveway. I used to take me 10 minutes with my old blower. With this one I spent more than 30 minutes. It's going back to Sears today!

Handy and light weight !

I am very pleased with my blower/vac. I have used both functions and it works beautifully. I have used it for about 45 - 60 minutes at a time and the light weight made it quite comfortable as well as efficient. I did comparison shopping and believe I've found the best for the money.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Product for the Price

For the low price this product was great! It definitely has enough power and the cord has never come loose. I have not used the mulching function yet but I am sure it works just as well as the other functions.

Overall a very easy and versatile leaf blower

I bought this craftsman 12A leaf blower to clean up around the yard. It is relatively light making it easy to clean up an entire yard without feeling like your arm is going to fall off. I like the variable speeds on the blower it's easy to control so you don' t blow your mulch all over the place. Overall a good leaf blower.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Speed Blower/Vac is great!

I am very pleased with my purchase of Speed Blower/Vac as it meets my approval in vacuuming my large deck and has enough power for this job. I would have liked a bit more power but it will do just fine for the jobs I need done. The price was just right and the weight of it is good as I have back trouble sometimes. I would recommend this product.

Good value

The blade guard has a safety feature requiring it to be closed for the motor to run. The 2nd time using, this feature was either stuck or shorted..thus the unit wouldn't run. It was just a few weeks into the purchase so I exchanged it for a new one - no questions asked. Until this issue, it worked well, especially with dry leaves. The product also comes with a 2 year warranty. It was very reasonably priced. So hopefully the 2nd unit doesn't have any issues, but if it does I am confident between return policy and warranty, I have nothing to lose.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Blower/vac

The variable speed is great. With other blower/vacs I have owned they only had one speed. With this one you can set it for a gentle breeze to hurricane strength wind.

Good for the price

I had a Toro, it wasn't near as good as this one. I like the steel propeller, mulch leaves better, less chance of damage. It doesn't a decent job for a electric blower. Vibration isn't real noticeable, can be used with one hand. The cord is not very long as it states in the spec., not a big deal but it would be nice for the cord to be longer. It blows really well on pavement, grass isn't quiet as good, however for the price it's a good buy. I tried mulching, it doesn't do as well as blowing but it does mulch decently. The mulch bag makes it harder to use, it maybe me but i never was able to get a good grip on the blower with the mulch attachment. I'll try it again and update my review. Other than the mulch function it's a good blower, i would recommend it. It serves my needs, if you don't need a gas blower and don't have a large area it will do most any decent jobs.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Nice light duty blower

If youre wanting a hurricane, this isnt for you. This leaf blower works great for blowing things off of your side walks and driveways but struggles to blow things out of the grass. If you take the tip off it will help move more air but its still nothing compared to a good gas powered unit. If you dont expect this unit to blow heavy amounts of leaves out of thick grass, you'll be a happy camper.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Power and Ease of Use

This unit is a blower and a vacuum which will make yard clean up very easy. It is a powerful unit and can move a lot of air, which means a lot of leaves and small twigs. I even used it to blow years worth of pine needles out from under a tree.

Blower it is ok, zipper for the mulch bag is a disappointment

I got this unit on June of 2012 so far it is ok. First the blower is ok, not as advertised with 240 mph, that will be cat 5 hurricane speed, truth is maybe 170 mph, maybe less due to the exhaust pipe is not completely sealed and air goes out thought the joints overall ok, and the extension cord is not 7 ft it is just 3 to 4 inches, long. Second and the disappointment the mulcher function is not that good, I have a two Syracuse trees their leaves are big and if the intake pipe takes too many at the same time, it will clogged very easily. I have to be careful not to pick a pile and a lot people complain about the dust it is true so wear a mask. the ratio is like 12 to 14 to 1, but the propeller is very good been metal. In the past I had blowers with plastic propeller and they break after the second winter. The zipper in the bag it is very low quality, it jams very easily and now I just used in the second winter the zipper is not capable to close anymore. In the past the mulch bags came with steel zipper, but this one is terrible the material of the bag is very bad. I spend all day talking with different departments in Sears to find a replacement because it is not cover by the warranty, until finally in customer service in parts she was able to find it. Do not try the phone on the product it has change. The part number is 31103148 it cost $18 plus shipping and handling and taxes and the actual model for the blower in case needs parts for it is 138.74898 do not go by the model number in your receipt or in the website. I hope this may help to decide to buy this product
