We have a lot of very big leaves that it manages fine.
OK in Oklahoma
The hose is a waste to use and clogs easily and I did not see a point since the suction on it stinks so I would not even bother relying on that.

This year I pulled it out and it was impossible to start.

I replaced a ten year old Craftsman machine with this one. I had read all the reviews for this before I purchased it. Having had a lot of experience with one, I concluded that some folks don't have much patience or feel for yard equipment. Is it hard to start? Yes, there is a lot of inertia to overcome on something that can grind inch and a half branches. Is the bag awkward to use? Yes, but do you have a better idea? The machine performed essentially the same as my old one. (This one worked of course.) My best advice is to think of it as vacuum cleaner not a lawn mower and use it similarly.

There are several brands of this machine, but they are all made by MTD, so buy by price. (Sears had it ten dollars cheaper the week after I bought this.) The bag is much lower quality than my old one. I kept the bag for the Craftsman and it was a direct fit so I will use it until it fails. (It was a replacement and cost $170. Yikes!) Pieces tend to shake off these things, so make sure you tighten things each time you use it.

Bottom line: It is not perfect, it is still a lot of work, but if you have a lot of leaves it sure is a better alternative to raking.

As one person wrote, it is hard to push and self-propelled would have been better. I have no trouble starting it but it is a harder/longer pull than a mower. The bag fills quickly and is heavy when it is full BUT it does suck up the leaves really well and I even use it over a pea gravel area and it does not suck up the gravel amazingly. I got mine used so I am not sure I would pay full price for a new one. The vacuum hose feature is a real time saver and big plus. I have a lot of small areas, shrubs etc. and it works great there. I have done the entire yard without picking up a rake.

These units appear to be the same. I've seen the Troy-Bilt and own two Craftsman, one push-mobile and the other rear wheel drive. If all three units use the Blower attachment, a word of CAUTION, be aware the attachment blows to the left (not changeable) extremely hard. If you use it on your sidewalk and/or gutters, watchout for your neighbors house, vehicles and persons passing by, rocks, etc., can be thrown unknowingly!

If you keep these machines in good operating/clean condition they will always start in 1-2 pulls. Yes, they have a heavy pull when starting and use a little more gas than lawnmowers. The later model #77366 Craftsman has rear wheel drive, which makes it much easier to operate.

Three suggested additions; Larger rear wheels, Electric Start and a better made BAG!!! Again, this is great Chipper, Shredde and Vacuum with no safety issues other than what I forementioned.

Before I bought the Troy-Bilt I was concerned about it being given only a 3 star review, however it had all the features I wanted in one machine: Walk behind, ground level suction as well as detachable tube for hard to reach places, mulched, and chipper for sticks. Wow! Found out that one of the minuses was it is not easy to pull start. Although I can pull start lawnmowers, but not this one. My husband handles it fine. Everything else I really like about it I think is great. We have a lot of very big leaves that it manages fine. The tube is great for flower beds, it does not suck up the dirt or plants. An added feature I like is the amount of suction. It doesn't have a problem with rocks, approx. 1.5 x 1", it doesn't suck them up.
We also have the seed balls from sweet gum trees and it picks them up and mulches them just fine. I'm very pleased!!

It performed better than I expected. it truly is a yard vacuum. it picked up every leaf on my lawn. In some spots
the leaves were 4" thick or more, and this machine had no problem picking them up.

I bought this model three or four years ago after my previous, slightly smaller Sears (Troybilt) chipper/vac finally gave it up. I can't say enough good things about this piece of lawn equipment. Unlike my previous model, it doesn't get clogged up. It doesn't shake parts off of itself like the other one did. It has saved me a ton of raking. My yard is surrounded by woods; trees on every side. I start up by the house and blow them right into the woods. Leaves that would take the majority of a day to rake up are moved in about an hour. I do bag some of the leaves to use as mulch in flower beds and around shrubs. The bag works great and is well made. It shows no signs of wear after three or four years and, believe me, I have picked up hundreds of bags of leaves in that time. While it is no problem to vacuum up leaves out on the lawn, one trick I have learned is to blow them up onto the driveway, where the ground is level and pushing the vac is almost effortless rather than across the lawn. With no grass trying to snag the leaves, they come up quickly. It is such a pleasure to use! On my old one the handle was a little too short and I would have to bend my six foot frame to push it causing a backache almost every time I used it. It isn't a problem with this one. If you are six-one or shorter, handle height shouldn't be an issue for you. The only feature I am not enamored with is the vacuum tube attachment. It is difficult to use, but unless the tube was much longer, I don't see how it could be better designed. I don't use this feature often, however, so I am not too concerned about it.
