Vacuum Kit
Vacuum Kit is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great multi-function product I'm almost 70 years old. I have 4 large oaks in the yard. I could only use the vac mode for about an hour before I was worn out. I finally used bungie cords to attach the vac to an old flat cart and arranged the bag to hang from the handle. Now I don't carry the bag, I don't carry the vac, I just pull the cart and swing the pick-up tube through the leaves, empty the bag, keep it fueled-up and can work for at least 4 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Met all expectations The vacuum kit for my BG 56 C-E worked exactly as advertised. It was easy to understand, assembly, and use. I got initial help from the dealer to ensure that I knew how to attach and remove the vacuum kit on the blow power head. It was easy to develop a technique for vacuuming the leaves and pine needles but leave behind the mulch. This is a great tool to finish of the Fall leave collection business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth a try. Saved me lots of time. Yard was full of leaves, & thick. After filling one bag in a short time, I used the vacuum without the bag. Threw the mulch out to the side & down. It's dirty, wear a mask. But it's saves emptying the bag every 2 mins. or so on the really heavy areas. Then used the mower to pick up the rest. Reduces the mulch by a great amount, and puts the rest in the lawn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great productworks as advertised The vacuum tube works great! You must go slow with wet leaves or small twigs. I pick up 10 to 12 vacuum bags ever other day in high winds. No instructions, but look at the instructions you got with your blower it explains how it works. GO SLOW WITH WET LEAVES GRASSHOPPER. Do not exceed the vacuum capacity of the blower and you will have no problems.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Easly Jams Got the vacuum kit from our boss. She says she bought it with no instructions on how to work it or how to handle it. It clogged the minute we used it around our fern planters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Surprise For the last ten years or so, I was blowing my leaves into piles, raking those piles onto a tarp, and dragging them to the back yard and piling them up there. It was a hassle. I bought this attachment today. I was skeptical about the performance of it and whether it would be worth the money. It's worth the money and then some BUT, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. The blowers do not like sticks. You want to make sure you pick those up first. Also, if your leaves are dry (and they should be. It works much better that way) it's a dirty job. Then vacuum away. I was able to take what would have been 3-4 large tarp loads of leaves and shrink them down to 2-1/4 trash bags. Put those by the street and done. No 3 foot deep pile of leaves to worry about decomposing. I highly recommend this attachment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tool! This vacuum is an awesome tool. We use it a lot to clean up plant trimming, weeds, leaves, etc. in our greenhouses. It puts almost anything it can pick up right through. Highly recommended!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Products, just not this attachment Quickly convert your STIHL handheld blower to a vacuum by attaching this easy Vacuum Kit. Don't believe this. Stihl makes great products. They should not sell this one for the electric blower. Difficult to install. Blower jammed after only a couple of minutes. Got a twig in blower blade. Had to take it to True Value to get attachment back off.Buy the gutter extension tube for this blower. Works great!!
