There is a round grille on the bottom of the unit. Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the latch to release it and reveal the vacuum opening. You should have a two-piece intake pipe that will attach to the opening.

The collection bag attaches to the smaller outlet where the blower pipe used to be (unscrew the wing nut to release the blower pipe). The bag clips onto the hooks at the base of the opening.

I have a Craftsman and you should have a separate attachment to it. Your motor will turn the same, instead of pushing air out the pipe, you will draw air in through the air intake.

Just attach the bag and it will switch modes. The bag goes over where the air comes in to blow while in blower mode, so when u attach the bag it will automatically start vacuuming.

The model that I have you need to remove the guard over the intake on the side. It looks like where the pull cord would be traditionally. Then it is easy to hook the larger pipe to the studs mounted inside the cage. The cage is spring loaded so be ready.

Leaf Blowers Features


* CFM (cubic feet per minute) is the measure of vacuuming power. Ratings fall in the 350 to 600 CFM range. * MPH (miles per hour) measures blowing. Leaf blowers perform at levels from 125 - 210 mph. * Decibels (dB) is the noise rating. * Reduction ratio on mulching blower/vacuums calculates how many units of leaves the mulcher can produce. A 10:1 ratio means that 10 bags of leaves can be reduced to 1 bag of mulch. * Speed settings allow better control when blowing or vacuuming. * Attachments, such as extension tubes for cleaning gutters, are available separately.
