Save your money and put a mulching blade and outlet plug on the mower. A few passes and your lawn will look neat, The shredded remains will have disappeared by the next day.

I have a vacuum mulcher which I never use because it stinks.
If you find a good one, let us know, because twice I've bought a blower/vacuum-mulcher, and twice I never used the vacuum part of it for various reasons.

I had a Sears one about 10+ years ago that was a combo blower/mulcher. It worked pretty well, I liked it. You could use it a regular blower or attach a big tube to the bottom and a shoulder bag to mulch. The only problem with the mulching is that with a shoulder bag, you really can't hold a lot. It was still useful for getting leaves out of basement window wells, shrub beds, etc. But it's not useful for doing any large, open areas, where blowing or blowing/raking works. And IDK if Sears has any similar today, how they compare to what I had, etc.

did you look to see if the maker of the device has an attachment accessory to pipe it to a can?
from what research I've done, there are some models that will let you pipe mulched remains to a garbage can instead of a bag.

I would recommend that you don't buy one of those blower/mulcher machines unless you simply need a leaf blower.
In my case I had a Black & Decker blower/mulcher and the thing would suck up small branches from trees that would break the plastic housing of the blower. Luckily, the housing broke while the tool was still under warranty, and I got a new one, but I only use it as a blower now because I know it will break if I use it to mulch leaves.
I believe that if you find a blower/mulcher with a rubber impeller in a steel housing, you'd have a much better machine than Black & Decker sell.

Yes, when they're dried out, they just disappear when you mow the lawn.
Someone left almost a whole cigar on my fence post. I threw it on the grass and mowed over it once. No trace of it.

That's what garden shops recommend.
Blowers make a lot of noise and just blow things around If a sidewalk or or driveway has leaves on it, a broom takes no more time, or leave it the way nature made it.

I can say, I'm not impressed with my Stihl unit. It somewhat mulches, but only partially. For bagging, it works for small piles. It works fine blowing.
