Most important in a great leaf vacuum is to have maximum suction power... We’re confident that we’ve got the most powerful leaf vacuum on the market.

DR Power Equipment has long been a leader in outdoor property maintenance equipment. With a penchant for innovation and problem-solving, the company works constantly to update and improve their product lines. This year, DR is excited to introduce a completely re-engineered line of DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuums.

Joe Perrotto, President and CEO of DR Power Equipment, says of the new, re-engineered line: “We essentially started from scratch and designed a leaf vacuum from the ground up to solve the many problems with the models available to consumers today. Most important in a great leaf vacuum is to have maximum suction power. No one wants to pass over a section of the lawn two or three times to pick up matted leaves or acorns. We’re confident that we’ve got the most powerful leaf vacuum on the market.”

The new DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuum models use a three-pronged approach for achieving maximum suction power: powerful engines, a high-airflow impeller blade, and an optimally-sized vacuum hose. Engines as powerful as 16.96 ft-lbs (389 cc) spin a solid-steel Shark-TeethTM impeller designed for maximum airflow, reducing collected leaves and other debris to a fraction of their original volume. The 8” diameter vacuum hose is ideal for concentrating the suction force while allowing plenty of space to avoid blockages. The result is airflow speeds of over 2,000 cubic feet per minute, and lawns that will certainly make the neighbors jealous.

Once DR solved for power, they went after convenience: ease of unloading, ease of storage, and then, as an added plus, they engineered the leaf vacuum to turn into a rugged utility trailer when the vacuuming is done. The new line makes leaf and lawn debris clean-up easier and more convenient than ever. The clamshell collector design allows for easy, one-handed dumping of collected materials. No hook-and-loop closures, buckles, or other hardware that make other systems so cumbersome – you can unload and get back to work in less than 60 seconds. With the assistance of powerful gas springs underneath the cart-bed, the collector empties quickly and easily even at full capacity.

Off-season storage of the new DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuum couldn’t be easier. With a new modular design, the top portion of the collector unit removes easily and folds down to just 5 inches thick. The power unit can then simply be removed and rolled away, requiring minimal space. With the power unit removed, the dump bed doubles as an 800-lb. capacity utility trailer – perfect for hauling firewood, building materials, and other bulky items year-round.

The new DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuum line consists of three models, all with impressive collection capacities and competition-topping engines:

– Lightweight and easy to maneuver, the Premier model features a 200-gallon collection capacity, a 9.59 ft-lbs/223cc engine, and a 500-lb. capacity utility trailer.
– Larger and more powerful, the Pro model features a 321-gallon collection capacity, a 13.28 ft-lbs/301cc engine, and an 800-lb. capacity utility trailer.
– For maximum power and capacity, the Pro-XL model features 321-gallon collection capacity, a 16.96 ft-lbs/389cc engine, and an 800-lb. capacity utility trailer.

The new DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuums are currently available for pre-order at introductory pricing, and will ship in August 2014, so customers will have theirs on-site and ready to go just in time for fall leaf clean-up.
