I ordered the Earthwise 12-amp Blower/Vac/Mulch Tool to take care of a small rental property -- more specifically, southern oak leaves. The package arrived with the angle tube for the blower missing, but Overstock took care of that upon a quick chat with customer service -- thank you! I've owned another major brand's comparable tool for years and never experienced what I experienced with this one -- bag blowout in one use. The collection bag for the mulcher did seem to be lightweight in comparison to what I was used to but I didn't think anything of it until I realized I was standing in a cloud of mulched leaves and dust. Upon inspection of the bag, I noticed that the area that was closest to the connection port was actually worn thin. It appears that every leaf particle that was entering the bag was actually wearing away (or leaf-blasting!) the side of it as well. With more of the yard to do, I tied the hole up in a "pony tail" with a piece of string and viola, the bag was in working order again and I could breath freely! About an hour later, that temporary solution stayed true to its name. "Poooof!" and I was in another microburst of mulched oak leaves. I gave the tool 4 stars because overall, I highly recommend the mechanism. It's VERY powerful, fairly lightweight, ergonomically designed and the cord retention hook is a help. My next step is to discuss my experience with customer service to find out if the bag will be replaced.
This was a Christmas present for my brother. He tried it out & reported that it would fail intermittently and the switch had to be jiggled a lot to get the thing going. Not the most useful thing when you have a yard full of leaves.
