you cant even compare the two....price or performance....it will do twice the work in half the time...the shredding ability of the vac is much better and the capacity the bag holds is much greater as well. I want to say it wont do anything more than the craftsman will it will just do it with more ease and quicker. i would recommend getting one just be sure to have the work lined up for it
