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.

DR® Power Equipment has long been a leader in outdoor property maintenance equipment. This fall, DR is excited to introduce a new and improved line of DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuums just in time for fall leaf cleanup.

Joe Perrotto, President and CEO of DR Power Equipment, says of the new, reengineered line: “We essentially started from scratch and designed a leaf vacuum from the ground up to solve the problems homeowners experience today in keeping their lawns clean, especially during the fall. 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.

This time of year, a leaf vacuum is by far the easiest way to clear leaves and other debris from your lawn. Raking is backbreaking work, and not practical for large properties. Leaf blowers only solve part of the problem, corralling leaves into a temporary pile, but not offering any solution for disposing of them. And simply leaving the leaf blanket on the lawn not only looks cluttered, but leaves the lawn susceptible to snow mold and other disease.

A leaf vacuum solves other problems that property owners encounter through the year as well. In the spring time, it clears twigs, nuts, leaves, and other debris that winter has left behind. In the summer, it functions as a high-capacity bagger for a riding lawn mower, collecting grass clippings and leaving the lawn looking pristine.

With three tow-behind models to choose from, as well as self-propelled options (not listed), there is a DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuum that's right for any property:

~ The 9.59 ft.-lb. Premier model is compact, easy to maneuver, and carries an impressive 200 gallons of shredded debris.
~ The 13.28 ft.-lb. Pro model offers more power and increased carrying capacity: 321 gallons!
~ The 16.96 ft.-lb. Pro-XL model is the top of the line. With maximum power and capacity, it is ideal for the largest properties and heaviest leaf cover.

All models in the new lineup feature easy, one-handed dumping of collected materials, and convert easily to a utility trailer for year-round use. With introductory pricing in effect for a limited time, models start at just $1,299.99.
