By F. Patton on October 6, 2011
Update: 11/21/2011. This vacuum shredder is a leaf-sucking monster, but I have found a walk-behind is not match for my 1.3 acre moderately wooded lot. That is not a flaw at all with this product. It is fantastic for clearing leaves and pine needles from the sidewalk and driveway, and from the bottom of my drainage ditch. I have also done a good deal of additional fallen limb and debris clean up and the Patriot continues to consume it all with ease and reduce it to small chips. In regard to leaves, I have so many leaves from numerous oak trees that reach up to 80 feet tall that the only efficient way to clear them is two passes with my garden tractor, one pass to shred and the second pass to vacuum with the tractor's rear bagging system. In many places the leaves are between shin and knee deep. The Patriot can dispose of them, but the bag fills very quickly. The leaves are not shredded as finely as I had hoped, but are shredded enough to form a dense bale in the bag. i.e. if the leaves were shredded more finely I doubt more would fit into the bag at one time. I found that one fully packed bag from the Patriot will mostly fill my John Deere 10P dump cart when emptied into it. That is an amazing volume.

Original review:
I will try to update this review after fall foliage season, but at this early point this vacuum/chipper/blower easily exceeds my expectations. BTW, my profile says Orange County, Ca. I now live in eastern Maryland. I have a 1.5 acre property heavily populated by numerous oak and maple trees as tall as 80 ft. I get a tremendous leaf fall!

This unit is available with either a Briggs or Honda engine. I spent a 23 year corporate career with American Honda.

I have wanted a yard vac ever since moving into my current home. I used to use my Stihl blower/vac for fall cleanup, but it was very cumbersome. As good as my Stihl is, it is no match for my fairly large yard with mature maple and cottonwood trees. I wanted a good yard vacuum but was less than impressed by the Troy Bilt's I was looking at. I did some research and found Patriot. There are two models; one with a Honda engine and one with a Brigg's engine. I'm a Honda small engine fan so it was a no brainer. I could have saved $300 if I would have bought the Brigg's powered model, but who cares. I was very satisfied with the way the machine worked in very tough damp/wet conditions with leaves that had been rained and snowed on. No vacuum is going to take the rake out of your hands if you want to get your yard really clean, but the Patriot is a great tool for fall cleanup. Highly recommended. The only thing I don't like is the Honda engine (which I thought was made in USA) was made in China. What is this world coming to?

I just wrapped up my first fall clean up using the CBV on my half acre property with many mature oak and maple trees. Note, this product page is titled “CVB-2455H”, but Patriot’s website lists the item as “CBV-2455H.” Heads up: as a mechanical engineer, my review may be a little too detailed and/or nitpicky. I also like to make things work better, so my own brainstorming ideas are shared herein.

Engine/impeller: Honda GX series engines are great, and I’m glad I went with this engine option. Plenty of power, seems fuel efficient. Starts on the first pull for me every time. However, I will note that the pull is heavy. This is a result of the mass of the impeller mounted directly to the drive shaft (a standard configuration in push vacs). Naturally, this will have a heavier pull than your lawn mower, because the impeller has much more material/mass than lawn mower blades. The impeller seems well constructed with heavy gauge steel and should last many years without issue. I haven’t worn through a set of flail blades yet, so I’ve yet to see how long they last.
Operation: Set the throttle and go. If you want to use the blower, simply flip the lever near the deck. When vacuuming, the unit gets very heavy when the bag fills. No surprise there, but you definitely notice the weight since this unit is not self-propelled. As the unit takes on leaves/weight, I find it sometimes difficult to push through the grass. I wonder if taller wheels would be helpful for getting over uneven lawn areas (of which I have many). Sometimes it feels like I’m pushing the wheels through the grass rather than the wheels rolling over the grass. I’ve thought about trying wider pneumatic ones.

Bag: I don’t love the zipper closure.

I have had the Honda version for almost 2 years. I have a small property (1/5 of an acre) with only two large maples of my own, but I end up with all my neighbors leaves so I got tired of the back breaking effort of raking every week in the fall and bagging them. I got the Honda over the Briggs because of reputation of the Honda small engine.

* Came delivered on a small pallet and assembly was pretty easy.
* I found starting was a little tricky, I found it best to put the throttle almost all the way forward. It didn't seem to start when all the way forward.
* Good vacuum power, but too many leaves it may clog the snout. Handles wet leaves pretty well in moderation. Best bet is to tilt it back and lower the front slowly when dealing with large piles of leaves.
* Blower is strong and works well on dry leaves, I have to tilt it back to get low for the wet packed down leaves. It would be nice if there was an adjustable flap to divert the air flow. I find it easier to blow the leaves onto a hard surface and then vacuum them up.
* When the bag is full (sooner if a bunch of chipped branches or wet leaves) will cause the front end to lift.
* Emptying the bag is a little awkward and messy because I have to put the leaves in bags or barrels., I also believe any bag would be the same.
* I wish the size of the shredded leaves was smaller, but does a decent job.
* The chipper is fantastic, I get a lot of small branches/twigs in my yard and when I trim the neighboring trees branches over my fence. Granted all the bending to get rid of a large amount of branches leaves my hamstrings sore, but the fact that it handles everything I put at it, it is a minor pain.
