faulty product-should be recalled
I originally purchased this model and found it to be defective – the elbow holding the vac bag continues comes off the main body whilst in vac mode.
I returned this machine for a new replacement and guess what the same thing happened. Can anybody tell me if there is a solution to this problem.
Which time before use I have applied additional pressure to make sure the elbow is locked into the main unit – it is only held on by a small plastic lug

A grade petrol vac blower
Bought this blower vac on special at Bunnings .Was quite surprised that the vac really sucked strongly unlike the previous Ryobi I have owned.The weight is acceptable for male users and starting the blower vac is quite effortless.Highly recommended !

Blower AND Shredder/Vac combo -- both actually work!
Surprisingly light (roughly 6.5kg with fuel and vacuum pipes). Well-balanced responsive controls. Starts like a dream -- the 'ES' really is an easy starter -- some kind of spring assistance means a gentle tug or two and powerful, powerful engine is growling. The vacuum shredder is just as good as the blower. Has great little 'ratchet' throttle leaver for 'cruise control', plus spring trigger, which lightens work load and gives max control. Cleaned up a HUGE mass of leaves, twigs, dust, grime in our tree-lined garden (2x ancient lilli pilly, b...lue gums and big locust tree leaves) and a heaps of dust from nearby building site, in a couple of hours. Used < 1 litre of fuel (1.5 tanks). Incredible machine. Feels like (and is) a solid, traditional Japanese commercial grade product -- built for the pros, but still has great manners for weekend warriors like me...smooth as. Cons? LOUD if you're vacuuming as it works best near full throttle. Take safety warnings seriously -- machine is safe as, but noise, dust, and fumes in a confined space (unavoidable for me) means googles and dust mask are ESSENTIAL. I dislike ear plugs/heads, because I want to hear what motor is doing and 106 dba max isn't too bad, esp if infrequent user...that's just me. Be 100% focused as this thing can definitely do some damage if you're not paying attention. No shoulder harness will be a drawback for some. Well-balanced enough not to need one IMO and you've got the vac bag strapped to you anyway. Noticed newer models have harnesses though, but cost more $$$. The blower part isnt as loud and you need just a touch of that awesome power to move leaves and crud easily. Overall: my favourite power tool for now; scored one for under $400!!Worth every cent.
