Rated 5 out of 5 by Seer55 Bought the Greenworks to replace a more expensive Sears model that wasn't very good. Almost everything about the Greenworks is better. To change from blower to mulch takes about 5 seconds as you just snap the new item in place. The Sears model was difficult to switch. I like everything about the new unit except for the scalloped end of the mulch nozzle. I would much prefer a straighter edge. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Greenworks.
Rated 5 out of 5 by dugz All the features, good quality, and good value
I purchased this unit mainly for leaf mulching duty, so I chose the metal impellor for its higher mulch ratio and presumably greater durability. I found it to be very easy to assemble and change from blower to vacuum. The plastic feels pretty durable and should last a while in normal service. The variable speed dial switch seems to be the weakest link, we'll see if it lasts through the entire warranty period. The bag is nice, works well. Overall its a very nice tool and just what I would expect from this type of thing.
Leaf season hasn't yet arrived, but I took this device out and mulched up a bunch of somewhat dried grass clippings. I had ten or fifteen bags of mulch before I was done, but it didn't seem to chop up the grass very much. Hopefully it will do better on leaves. It easily sucked up the clumps of grass until its bag would become full. So go dump the bag, repeat. The 33gal garbage can adapter that some other brands have available would be nice for this but I don't think it would be very difficult to just construct such a system for this, at most using a replacement bag for the connector.
So it works well and does what it is supposed to. I can't yet comment on the durability but the generous warranty is certainly reassuring. I think I got a good value with this overall.

We live in Albuquerque, NM. Landscaping here is typical for the southwest but very different than the rest of the country. We are only allowed a small patch of grass, desert plants and the rest is landscape gravel. Leaves and other debris settle into the gravel along with the dirt that blows in. I bought this unit to vacuum out all the debris that has accumulated in the gravel. I had to dig the end of the tube into the gravel to loosen the debris, which worked. What I hadn't anticipated was how much dirt would get sucked in as well (this vacuum really sucks!). I had to work about a 6' square area at a time then empty the bag.
All the dirt destroyed the zipper the first day. I wasn't surprised or upset because the zipper was too small for handling this amount of dirt and this unit wasn't built for this application. I got around the zipper by folding that side of the bag over twice and using 5 spring clamps to hold it closed.
All-in-all I have been impressed with this unit especially considering it was built to suck leaves off a lawn and not sucking dirt and heavy amounts of dead twigs out of gravel. If I was sucking leaves and twigs off of a lawn, I would give it 5 stars.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Leli2115 The price was reasonable but this product would get clogged at times, had difficulty empting out the bag and tore a hole through it the first two hour of usage.
Rated 5 out of 5 by GR8GRAMMA Good quality-fairly priced
The blower/vac is easy to use and does not hurt a person's back as do the gas-powered, heavy type.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Watercan23 I really like this Blower/Vac
The variable speed option is great for blowing the drive and curb side. You can use the lower speed to direct the grass clippings just where you want them. Clean up is very fast now.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Tabztoy Great little blower !
I was very shocked at how well the greenworks performed for such a small price I paid.. It's lightweight and doesn't leave you with the vibration feeling left in your arms, like some machines do, I have a good sized yard to clean and this machine did exactly what I needed it to do, I like the verible speeds for edging and small flower areas. I am very happy with my purchase. Can't wait to use the vacuum feature next.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Greenwood2112 Doesn't mulch them on a 14:1 ratio, more like 2:1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by FlyingDragon The lead blower has good power and does a good job of what it is expected to do. The product is robust and is good for regular or rough use.
It is a little heavy for my liking. It comes with attachements. The leaf collector attachment has not proved to be very useful for me. For the price I paid this is a good buy
Rated 4 out of 5 by V1king fine for me
I've been using this for a few weeks now & its great on pavers & leaves I have no complants either with the vacume or blower.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Chief3930 One Year After
This product is poorley manufactured. First off the on and off switch is intermitted and the bag did not last 10 uses when the bag started tearing at the attachment. I got the extended waranty. I called Greenworks after a large amount of talking about the bag they agreed to send a new one(without Charging ME) Yes they said that the warranty does not cover this item which is $20. The switch issue i would have to bring it to one of their service centers.... WHICH IS IN GILBERT I am in San Tan????? No mail in or any other services. I called and they said about a 7 to 14 day wait because they have to get approval to work on it from Greenworks. This is very cheaply made and yes for the price I should have known better.....
Rated 4 out of 5 by cherrau Good product for the money.
Lots of power. I like the variable speed. Easy to handle. Only drawback is the cord sometimes falls out when using it.
Rated 4 out of 5 by montana231 great for areas close around house and garage!
I enjoy using this tool. its easy to change attachments, no oil, no gas, lightweight, no smell.
Rated 5 out of 5 by uncdon The blower is great, but the vac is even better. It ran for hours nonstop with no problems. The metal impeller is very important during vac.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Livininva2 Does the job
Am very satisfied with the performance of this leaf blower/vac.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fallwork Item ordered for the fall season and it has not been put into use yet. At it's present state it is what I expected and I hope that it does the job it was purchased for when those leaves start falling.
Rated 1 out of 5 by 984runney RETURNED TO WALMART
I bought this for the vacuum function as I already have a gas blower. It does vacuum ok but does not mulch very well. "Turns 16 bushels of leaves into 1 bushel" is a stretch because a lot of the leaves are whole in the bag after vacuuming. As a vacuum it is very clumsy to operate. Trying to point the vac nozzle, manage the control buttons and hold the bag in a slight downward position or it clogs is awkward at best. I was also covered in leaf dust after operation and I would recommend a good dust mask. As a blower, my gas blower is way better and it is an older model.
Rated 5 out of 5 by lovethisproduct7 so far so good
I had just used this one time and so far so good. I hope it will give me good service for a long time.
I have not used the leaf vac I am waiting till this fall when the leaves begin to shed.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dean7276 Great value
This thing is great! I had a gas blower that lasted many years but I was constantly tuning it and changing spark plugs etc. and got tired of the maintenance. When it finally died I thought about a rechargeable battery type blower but my previous experience with them tells me the battery will die after 5-10 minutes so I opted for this corded Greenworks blower.
It is powerful and does exactly what I need it to do which is to clear driveways and sidewalks of grass clippings and leaves. I especially like not having to put gas in it or charge it's battery before I'm done using it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Got2KidsUnder3 So far I'm very pleased with this leaf blower. Bought it to replace my 10yr old blower/vac. It's not too heavy, fairly compact and has enough power to push tree debris that has fallen onto the grass. The rolling speed dial takes some getting used to, but I've found it nice to be able to decrease the power to a very low setting if you're in tight quarters and then be able to slowly increase the motor power up to full speed--vs. choosing between two speeds. Have not and do not intend to use the vacuum feature--prefer raking to the dust it would probably create.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cassey14 Have to mulch twice
I bought this mainly to mulch oak leaves to use in the garden and mulch the leaves to use in the compost bin. I'm having to mulch twice to get the leaves small enough. Otherwise it's a good product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by babsdubo DOES WHAT IT SAYS``
REASONABLE PRICE FOR THIS ITEM. WORKS WELL FOR A HOME YARD
Rated 5 out of 5 by BigAl21701 Does a good job and at a really good price.
Very easy to put together and use. Easy to change from vacum to blower.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ShopInSpringfield Good product
So far I've only used it for leaf blowing, but I love it! It's reasonably light-weight & it has enough power for my needs, blowing the leaves off my drive, walkways, & patio.
