Ryobi 40V Vac Attack cordless leaf vacuum RY40451
Collect and mulch those fall leaves with the Ryobi 40V Vac Attack
Autumn is here and these leaves will not collect on their own. Tasks are inevitable, but why not make it easier for yourself? Let the Ryobi 40V Vac Attack Leaf Mower Vacuum Cleaner do the heavy lifting for you. This 2-in-1 solution vacuums and mulches your leaves and the thoughtful design takes the strain off your back and arms.
Ryobi 40V Vac Attack Cordless Leaf Vacuum Big Deal
The Ryobi 40V Vac Attack Mulcher has a couple of promising design elements. First, at 300 CFM and 75 MPH airspeed, it has the power to handle the vast majority of what your trees drop into your lawn without grabbing every bit of mulch and small rocks that get in the way.
One of the big deals on this mulcher revolves around its mulching efficiency. While the Vac Attack is vacuuming the leaves, its metal impeller reduces the volume by a ratio of 16: 1. That’s pretty impressive when you consider that the Makita XBU04 18V X2 cordless blow mulcher, which we give pretty good marks, only reduces it to 10: 1.
In addition, the vacuum / mulcher also has wheels on the bottom of the pipe. This will place the nozzle where you need it while taking some of the weight off your arms and back. Although it weighs less than 13 pounds, we accept any help we can get.
- Variable speed dial
- Adjustable vacuum tube
- Robust collection bag
- Double drainage zips
