Comments about 173cc Gas Chipper Shredder Vacuum with 1-1/2 in. Feeder:
I have more patio and driveway surface than lawn. Does a great job cleaning up and chipping small limbs. I had a bigger self propelled vacuum/chipper very similar but if the bag is emptied often the lack of self propulsion is no big deal. The bags on these machines tend to wear out and the Craftsman replacement bag runs around $250, while this bag replacement is under $80.
