Very Pleased
I have had my BG Vacuum for a little over 2 months and it has been a great piece of equipment so far. Fast shipping and arrived in great shape. Easy to assemble. The Briggs & Stratton engine has started with one or 2 pulls every time. What once took me over 2 days to completely rake I can now accomplish in less than 8 hours with this vacuum.

Two notes for potential buyers: our city requires that we bag our leaves for curb pickup and transferring the load between the BG rear canvas bag... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Nightmare To Start
Cold start is ok, after that when you stop to empty bag you will need to take a 10-15 minute brake before it will start again. Hard to understand since others have had the same problem that they still sell this and that B&S hasn't addressed the issue customer service from PED is worthless, buy elsewhere and stay away from the B&S engine.
Pros: Price
Cons: Low Quality, Difficult To Use, Unreliable, Packaging

Marissa, the Leaf Blower Expert
Product Expert
Stan,
I am sorry to hear of your disappointment with the product and the poor experience you have had with our customer service department. Unfortunately, we are not trained in trouble shooting or advanced technical support. Engine issues such as the one you have experienced do need to be directed toward the manufacturer, which in this case would be Briggs and Stratton. I hope that in your discussions with them, you were able to resolve the issues you were experiencing and have a properly working leaf blower.

Once again, I apologize for the issues you have experienced and appreciate your time in writing this honest review. I hope you have a great day!

Works Very Well
I bought this machine to pick up leaves and pine cones. It works very well. It starts very easily and runs great. The only thing if the leafs are wet and sort of matted down in the grass it will not pick them up other then that a great little machine.

Hard To Start
Cold start is not so bad, but not so easy. After unit is warmed up it can be extremely difficult to start.

Good And Bad
I purchased this machine and have used it twice. Then I found that the machine started to creep forward all by itself. Upon examination I found that the drive belt was starting to self destruct. Hope the warranty will replace it for me. Other than that the machine really sucks, well, and I am pleased with what it can and will pick up.

Great unit, superior suction power. easy to manipulate in spite of its size. rolls effortlessly. All in all does a great job. Lot's of acorns in my area and my lawn gets it fair share, this monster just sucks them up and shreds them into sawdust. could not be more pleased.

Its's Ok
The unit is a real chore to start. It usually requires several pulls, which are very difficult. I use quick start for car engines to aid the starting process. Also, it does not shred leaves very well at all. Most of them are left whole or just cut in half. Finally, the bag itself is very cumbersome to remove and empty. It gets very heavy if you let it get more than half full. The front end of the unit lifts off the ground if the bag gets more than half full too, and vacuum is lost.
Pros: Powerful, Easy To Adjust
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Use, Expensive, Hard To Start

This machine really sucks....well. I was very impressed the first time I used it. The things it sucked up from tall grass was impressive. I'm looking forward to a long relationship with this machine.
