  • Speed Settings: This unit is a one-speed leaf blower.
  • Vacuum: It features a vacuum allowing it to suck up leaf and debris once the sweeping job is complete (11 gallon bag included).
  • Mulching: With a mulching ratio of 12:1, this mulcher can shrink 12 bags of leaves down to one bag of mulch, helping you get rid of unwanted leaves and debris. The unit uses a plastic impeller.

About Craftsman

Craftsman is a label which traces its roots to 1927, when it was first registered by the Sears department store. The brand has been only recently acquired by Stanley Black & Decker. Their products seem to be assembled in the US, from materials that are sourced abroad. Their selection features a wide range of lawn keeping equipment, including several leaf blowers. Little by little, Craftsman are diversifying their leaf blower offers. Craftsman blowers used to be exclusively handheld and electrically powered, but we now see backpack and gas-powered models. Both their price and specs range from the lower to middle tier.

Warranty Information

The Craftsman CMEBL7000 is covered under a warranty for up to 3 years. This warranty may not cover all parts of the blower.
For more information about the warranty of Craftsman blowers, please consult Craftsman's warranty policies (opens in a new tab). Alternatively, you can also contact their Customer Support: 1-888-331-4569.

    I had a green works battery operated blower before. Battery died after a year. Got this electric plug in unit, it was easily to assemble. I took it out for a test try. It has lots of power, more MPH than the other twelve units I looked at. The price was just perfect for what it offers.

    + PROS: 1.Easy to use. Going from Blower to Vacuum with little effort. 2. Most MPH compared to other brands. 3. Price is set right.
    - CONS: 1.Bag shoulder straps cheaply manufactured. 2. Electric, you have to ensure you have long enough electric cord.
