The first product I tried was the Leaf and Lawn Chute by Leaf Easy Industries. It has the big plus that there's no assembly needed - you just put it into the bag when it is folded, then unfold it, and then fold back the top to create the chute. Very easy, and also has the benefit that you can store it folded flat so it takes up little room.
However, the actual performance of the item was sub-par. Mine arrived with a busted seam that got worse with use. Plus, it only has three sides, so if you pack your paper bags full to minimize the number needed, the bag will blow out in the back since there's nothing to protect it from branches (or anything else that will go through paper).
I also had problems removing the Chute from a filled bag. It was fine when the bag was full of soft stuff (leaves and weeds), but it was a chore to remove the Chute without damaging the bag when the bag was full of branches and tough stuff (such as big clippings from ivy bushes - those leaves are sharp!). The three-sided design has some real drawbacks.
So, I tried the Yard Genie. It does take some time to assemble (took me about 15 minutes, and a rubber mallet is not a bad idea to save your hands). Take your time, and it goes together in a straightforward manner - it's not tough.
Once it's assembled, you're rewarded with a much better solution to the yard waste problem. It has four sides, so it protects every side of the paper bag from punctures. Like the Chute it is made of plastic, but it is made of more sturdy material.Read more ›
Cons: weight (for some), difficult to take apart for storage
The bag holder assembled dimensions are 15"/38.1cm x 11"/27.9cm at the hand hole end x 33"/83.8cm tall, weighs 6 lbs./2.72 kg, and is made of hard plastic. There are two wide panels and two narrow panels with hand holes at one end of each of them; the other ends with no hand holes are 0.375"/9.5mm wider. Make sure the hand holes are at the same end when assembling. Each panel has three holes spaced along each long side. There are four triangular corner pieces that are 33" long that have channels that the side panels slip into. Each corner piece has three holes spaced along two of the sides. There is a packet of 24 plastic rivets used to secure the side panels to the corner pieces. You slip the side panels into the corner pieces making sure the holes in the panels and corner pieces line up then you insert a plastic rivet into each hole. Some persuasion might be needed. The holes lined up just right on the one I purchased and the rivets inserted OK for the most part. The head of one plastic rivet broke off during assembly. One of the corner piece sides that face inside the holder split at one end during assembly. It does not appear that the bag holder can be easily dissasembled. Doing so would most likely break the heads off of the plastic rivets.
The bag holder is designed to fit in the paper leaf bags that have a rectangular cross section. It will fit inside a 30 gallon plastic bag but the bag stops about 6" from the top. A 39 gallon plastic bag will fit with a couple of inches to spare. You will probably need some kind of clips to hold the plastic bags up around the bag holder.
The weight of the bag holder could be helpful in light wind conditions.Read more ›

I bagged dozens and dozens of leaves with this thing. Works great! The only thing it needs is to have handles on both ends. Though maybe you could put it together that way? Read morePublished 3 months ago by kboeds
