Small But Mighty
Although it is small compared to other Shredder Vac's, it is just the right size for a 5 ft. great-grandmother to use. It is self propelled and easily climbs the many rises I have in my 1 1/3 acre home site.

Never Wants To Start.
I purchased this and couldn't wait to use it. Then it wouldn't start. I took it in and had it looked at twice. We'd get it started but then if we let it sit for a week it wouldn't start again. They blamed it on the safety switch that it was compressed not enough.

Then the next time it was compressed too much. I'd love to give it a good review but at this point I have spent more time trying to get it to work then I have using it. I can't deal with it any more and decided I wanted to... more

Basically Happy With It.
It works well, a little tough to start. Getting the bag off once it is more than half full is damn near impossible. It mulches well. Self propelled is a real plus when you live on a hill like I do.

Great Machine !!
While putting together my machine, the "tang" that "holds up" the chute during assembly was a little bit too long. The chipper "blades" could not turn even one full revolution. After I figured out what the problem was and took a hacksaw and cut off about 1/8" of the "tang" and put it back together, it started and ran just fine. It "sucks" leaves better than the Troy-Bilt that I bought 25ish years ago. One other problem is the collection... more

Cvs 206 Is A Work Horse
Bought mine new in 2003. It starts on the first pull most of the time. I have Oaks and Maples in the yard and it does a very nice job of picking up the leaves, even wet ones. The self propelled feature is very handy and have not had a problem with it. The bag is a good size and it shreds the leaves in very small pieces. The hose attachment is awkward to use and comes detached as it is very heavy. I found the best way to empty the bag is to set up a backstop of cardboard or other material, then... more
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Price, Reliable

Went Halves W/ Next Door Neighbor
This is my 3rd year using our CSV206. We use it about every two weeks in the fall when the Pecan and Magnolia leaves are falling. We also have some Oaks and Japanese Magnolias. My neighbor is now 72 and finds it hard to use, so this year I'm doing the most use. (I'm 66) it is heavy, but I like it better than raking. A little harder than my lawn mower. Probably too much for a smaller woman.(?) It mulches the leaves very tiny. I share shredding w/ neighbors for their Azealeas, etc. I... more
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable
Cons: Expensive

Vac Hose Kit
Bought this for my Troy Bilt MTD style chipper vac. It works great and was cheaper than other stores. I will buy from again when need a part thanks for having it in stock, other website's and stores were out of stock and did not know when they could get it. Leaf Blowers Direct had it and I received in less than a week thanks for fast delivery and great price.

Chipper Shredder Vacuum
I have one of these that's 20 years old. It says Craftsman because I bought it at Sears but it's the same machine. Decided it was time for a new one so got this. Only difference is the engine. My old one had a purge bulb and no choke, this one with the choke is much better. Bad news is the old one had an oil filler tube with a dipstick.

Whatever idiot that designed the oil fill on this one should be shot. It says to fill it till it overflows but the oil bottle blocks your view and you can't... more

My Experience With A New Troy Chipper/vac
Several things, one I am a graduate manufacturing engineer two, I have worked in manufacturing,quality, and engineering for over 30 years four, I owned an older chipper/vac for over 10 years with excellent results.

#1) Immediately someone needs to inspect the welds on the vanes of the roror such that every weld is per engineering spec. My problem, one vane with tines broke off and parts flew out though the chute wild vacuuming leaves. At the time I added a 1inch branch, quite straight and... more

Don't Buy This Product.
Poor design. Cheap bolts for front attachment. Difficult to pull start. Does not track in a straight line, pulls to the left when the wheels are engaged. Bag is difficult to hook and unhook and does not hold much. It would be better to buy a pull behind vacuum that goes back of a mower.
Cons: Low Quality, Heavy, Difficult To Use, Unreliable

Not Worth The Hassles
Terrible return policy doesn't back the equipment.

Larry,
Our policy clearly outlines the fact that we cannot take back used equipment that has been filled with gasoline due to federal shipping regulations. Your best option in this case is to work with a local Troy-Bilt servicing dealer. They will be able to assist in getting your chipper shredder vacuum running. We will gladly assist you in locating a dealer in your area. Please contact us at 800-710-7499 and we can help you.
