    I have just used my blower/mulcher twice I have a very large tree in my back yard has so many leaves I could not even see my grass. Started at one side and blow the leaves to the center when I got there I hooked the bag on and sucked them up. That is where the hose and cover for the 32 gallon barrel would really have worked. I will be ordering one today. Got tired of unzipping the bag. I do have to say that this machine is all that they say. Very happy!!!! Yes, I would recommend to a freind and neighbor Matter of fact 2 of my neighors came over to see what I was doing.

    The first time I used it it worked pretty well on a dry sunny day with a pile of clean dry leaves only. The second time I used it the leaves were not wet but newly dropped and moist. The jams were endless and you have to take apart everything to clear the bad ones. Then the bag zipper starting coming apart. The strap is useless. There is no option but one handed operation. Hard on the arms and back. I returned it.

    I just got my GT 502 yesterday 11-17-12. I am already done with the leaves today. I don't know why I did not have one of these before. If you think this thing won't do the job your wrong. Follow the guide, take your time and look at the results.

      I bought the WORX Blower/Mulcher/Vac for my husband because the one he had was so hard to use. I checked out this brand online and the reviews were very good. My husband says it so easy to use, light weight yet powerful. He uses it a lot and his back doesn't hurt him.

        I use this at home for my yard work and it really is great to use to blow the grass clipping and then vacum them up as well as the leaves. It would be nice if the bag had a vinyl liner so you could empty it easier and completely.

        I had an older blower that needed a new bag and a blower wheel. I figured that it would cost as much as a new blower to repair it so I bought this one. I am glad I did. It performs better than the old one, (Chops finer and doesn't plug up). I would recommend it to anyone.

          This product is so easy to use. No need to change tubes between blowing/vac/mulching - just move a switch. Handy! It is also very well balanced. I've had a blower/vac before but the way you would have to hold the product would kill my back after using it. I've used this to vac my whole backyard and no such problem. Flick of a switch and I'm blowing leaves. Mulching works great too.

                      I have to agree that it would be nice if they had a handle behind the motor as it tends to put strain on your forearm after about 15 minutes.
                      The leaf mulcher is average as you have to get the unit right down on the leaves for it to pick them up but that may be due to if it were even more powerful (suction), then maybe it would pick up your landscape rocks which would not be good.
