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.

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
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.
