Who Wants a Yardworks Lawn Vacuum? ($199.99 Value)

Canadian TireThe good people at Canadian Tire want to give one of you a Yardwords Lawn Vacuum. They tell me this thing retails for $199.99 in Canadian Tire stores.

Last time we did this with a grass trimmer, Rob S. was randomly selected from the comments and shipped the trimmer / edger for his Dad. This time, the winner could be you.

To win this Yardworks Lawn Vacuum, you just have to leave a comment telling me one other site you frequent on a regular basis. Everyone who leaves a comment will be entered in a random draw. Please leave your email address in the Email Address field (it won't get published on the site) so I can secure your mailing address should you win. Canadian Tire will only ship the prize to addresses in Canada or the United States. I'll pick the winner on November 5.

Here's the marketing spiel about the lawn vacuum.

Your outdoor vaccum! Just plug it in and let its powerful suction quickly sweep your carpet of leaves.

  • 14A motor, 16” vacuuming path
  • 604 cfm air volume is 25% more powerful than standard electric blower/vacuums
  • Folds to store under a bench or on the wall
  • 6-position wheel height adjustment accommodates different terrain
  • 45L washable leaf collection bag
  • 6” metal impeller can mulch 16 bags of leaves down to 1
  • Wall bracket included so that the unit can be stored up out of the way against a garage wall

Here's a picture.

I check out TSC.ca on a daily basis. Would love to get a second Yardworks Lawn Vac as we have a large property surrounded by woods and the unit we purchased earlier this year is quite simply the best! One pass and you're done...we couldn't ask for more or be any happier with the results.
Love visiting the websites mentioned above.

Especially during football season: www.cfl.ca
I'm a born and raised western Canadian, even though I have lived in the Toronto area for the majority of my life.

As I looked out my front bedroom/home office window this year, I marvelled at how nice my red maple tree grew this year, despite what most people called a lousy summer. Right now, I'm trying to not look down at the ground to see just how many leaves are on the ground from it.

I frequently check out John Deere attachments as I have a John Deere tractor,was searching the web for lawn vacuums but they are all in the US glad to see good old Canadian Tire has these,If I don't get picked I will probably buy one anyways lol

i bought one of these 2 years ago and a wheel fell off 1/3 into doing my yard ( weld on bracket holding wheel did not hold) i had it for just 2 days and took in back to the Canadian tire store where i bought it and was told all i could get was an in store credit. if you want junk likethis buy from Walmart at least you get your money back if you return it.

Mike I 've been searching all over the internet for a manual for this Yard works lawn vacuum from Canadian Tire but can't even find a picture, yours is the only one I found
I bought this on Kijiji, no manual, no parts info, do you know where I could get a manual?
I would really appreciate any info beside the one you have posted here,
Thanks, Frank
