40V VAC ATTACK™ Leaf Mulcher
40V Brushless VAC ATTACK Leaf Mulcher is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 404.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good riddance to my leaves! Purchased mine Oct, 2022. Waited anxiously anout a week itching to get out to find the lawn agian buried in leaves. Everything assebles with ease and disccects very easily for unloading, battery excahnge, etc. ONLY issue I really had is the bag clip that attaches it to the tubing continually disconnects itself. It should jave been located a couple inches further down to give a snug attachment and the weight would then prevent that. If you're vacuuming in a pile use the Low setting or else it could easily clog sucking too much at once because it is powerful.Once I unclogged twice after some time I figured it out and haven't clogged it again after multiple unloads of the bag. Requires some effort to uinload but you're happy to see so many leaves mulched to small nits making a regular garbage bag hold a lot of mulched leaves versus multiple bags for the same amount. Overall a very satisying tool in your yard.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good buy It has less suction and doesn’t chop up the leaves well. The emptying of the bag is cumbersome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we needed! We have a pool in the backyard so we like to vacuum the leaves up. The ryobi vacuum is perfect for this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice leaf vacuum I bought this to replace a corded blower/vacuum combo unit. Since I already had the Ryobi leaf blower with a fast charger (awesome) and two batteries I only needed the tool itself. I certainly does a great job of sucking up leaves in tight places and I like the option of having the wheels to guide it along!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good concept, lacks polish On the plus side, the unit swallowed up leaves quickly. Unfortunately, I was only able to complete 25% of my front yard using two 40V batteries I already had. Although disappointed that I was unable to get more done, I can't fault Ryobi for not being able to change the laws of physics. What I do find fault with is the poor bag and bag attachment design, which wasn't user friendly. The attachment at the outlet nozzle was difficult to operate. And, the attachment point to support the front of the bag from the intake duct was just a hook and eye that kept slipping off each time I pulled the vacuum backwards, and i had to tie-wrap it to keep the bag from falling off. The net result was that I had to hold the entire unit, bag and vacuum, above a yard waste bag each time the collection bag filled up. Heavy and awkward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the job as expected We purchased this to help cleaning a sports court. The only thing I would add is a shoulder strap.
