Here are some leaf cleanups we did today, check the leaf loader

THought i would take some pics today of me and a crew member doing some leaf removals with backpack blowers and our leaf vac machine.

This is quite different than most of you on here have, but we are trying to brand a service with this. It is a 27hp lq colled kaw powered leaf vac with hydro dump and battery charger built in!

It has a 12 in feed tube that goes into the impellar that is like 2.25ft in dia with a more than 1" thick impellar blades.

WELL, here are the pics and we are going to mow these in the next couple of days, but we would have been there forever trying to mow and bag all that.

Actually there is another way.......no more leaves than was on these properties could be easily and quickly mulched with almost any mower. One guy on mower and another guy rounding them up. And if the customer is really really picky then you could vac the rest up with a little 21". I have done many many many jobs over the years this way.
