The Leaf and Lawn Chute is a tri-fold sheet constructed of high-density, corrugated plastic. This 100% plastic item, forms into a 3 sided box shape and designed to help keep a 30 gal., paper yard waste leaf bag, upright, while reinforcing the sides of the bag to prevent ripping or seam bursting. Because the Leaf and Lawn Chute is made from a single sheet of plastic there are no moving parts or assembly required. The user simply slides the folded and flat item in to an open paper bag, unfolds or opens the two sides, to form the 3 sided box shape, then presses in on the top portion, to form the angled chute. It is now assembled and ready to begin filling the leaf bag. The user can compress the debris so that they can fit more material in each leaf bag. The sidewall strength provided by this device allows the user to fit nearly 20% more debris in each paper bag, so fewer leaf bags will be used. The Leaf and Lawn Chute is durable, water resistant and reusable. After filling the leaf bag the Leaf and Lawn Chute is lifted out of the paper leaf bag easily and cleanly and then folded flat for easy storage. The plastic material will last through many thousand fold and refold cycles without splitting or breaking apart. When considering cost, features and benefits, the Leaf and Lawn Chute is far superior to any other product available. Other devices are more expensive consist of several parts that require assembly are bulky to use and store or are simply not as easy or effective to use.

After setting it up (it is weird, you have to bend it backwards or "inside out" at the top to make the chute) it was a breeze. This thing was really great, it helped my husband with his mothers yard so much. It really was like having another set of hands, and got the job done a lot faster too. We aren't raking wet leaves so this will last through this season and at least another if not more (not even sure if wet leaves would make this deteriorate). It is like a plastic cardboardish type material and it folds nice and flat for storage. Even if it only lasted one season I would fork over the $9 every year, it is that helpful and cheaper than a human helper :). Reminds the hubs of filling popcorn bags! I bought it in store and it is green (dunno about those freaky orange ones in the other reviews)
Pros: Durable, Multi Use, Easy to Install, Strong, Good Shape
A little different than most when assembling but this lends to it's stability. It really holds up to some rough treatment, is very easy to slip into a bag, and makes gardening a lot easier when it comes to getting rid of waste & prunnings.
Like everyone else I hate raking leaves & picking them up. With this I no longer have a hate relationship with the bags when trying to get the leaves into the bag. This makes it so much easier task to finish!
Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Functionality, Great Quality
I bought this to help bag my grass from my new bag attachment on my riding lawnmower. The product is made of a good card board material that would probably last. My issue is that my bags from the mower are bigger then the chute, so i end up dropping grass back onto the ground. If the chute were wider or double sided, this would be perfect. I am going to just make my own chute and bag holder.
Have been thinking about making one of these since I started using the large brown lawn bags. I really hate trying to empty my John Deere grass catchers into these paper bags as they always collapse of or fall over............not any more! Last year HD sold a cardboard version which lasted about one use. These are truly reusable I now have three....took one to the beach house. If you use lawn bags, you NEED these
Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Functionality, Strong, Great Quality
I feel stupid for wrestling with jamming stuff into paper yard waste bags when this simple little device makes the job an order of magnitude easier. I didn't even realize it had the fold out chute until the first time I used it - that makes an already useful product that much better!
Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Functionality, Good Shape
I have had mine for 4 or 5 years and is still as good as new. Going to buy a 2nd one. Have almost 1/2 an acre with lots of trees. Can't understand some of the negative results especially the one saying it tore. I fine that impossible to believe. It must have been one of those made out of corrugated cardboard which I have and still use. Of coarse buy at Home Depot, not on line, the company is charging $26.00.
I've only used the chute once. So far it's worked quite well. The pictured directions on the chute,for me, were a little tricky to figure out but once I got it, it kept the bag in place making a breeze to fill. Once the bag was full, removing the chute was easy. Well worth the money.
If you use the tall paper lawn/leaf bags, this chute is so helpful and inexpensive that I consider it necessary. It holds the bag up straight, and the chute effectively enlarges the bag's opening. It also protects three sides of the bag to help prevent sticks from poking through when you press down the lawn waste.
The only trouble I have with the chute is putting it in when the bag hasn't completely unfolded at the bottom. There's a chance for the bag to rip if you just jam the chute in. This might be fixed if the bottom corners of the chute were rounded. Now that I think about it, I may try to trim the corners before I finish raking this year's leaves.
