As garden leaf vacuum, using metal impeler Toro 51619 reduces almost 90% of vacuumed debris into less than 1/2-inch in size chunks - this size is suitable for mulching in the garden, for composting etc. Vacuumed and shredded debris are stored in the bottom-zip bag - vacuum doesn't lose suction until the bag is almost full.

Great except that power cord doesn't come with the unit - but that is standard for units like this one. It is up to the gardener to get required extension cord, according to the individual needs. Or the gardener perhaps already has a power cord and there is no need to increase the price of the unit. Which is very affordable for 12 Amp garden leaf blower/vacuum/mulcher.
