How do I determine which KV model is best suited to my needs?
If you’re going to use the vacuum on steeper inclines or rough terrain, we recommend the self-propelled version. The KV push model is very easy to maneuver and an excellent choice for most homeowners.
How long is the hose on the optional On-Board-Hose Kit?
The hose is 8 feet long. Ideal for cleaning between shrubs, under decks, window wells, utilities and other hard to reach areas. Most KV vacuums are requested with hose kits because they work so well.
Can I increase the length of the KV hose?
Yes, couplers and additional hose lengths are available but extending the length will reduce suction by as much as 25%. Also, extending the hose will make it more difficult to carry the hose on-board.
How much does the KV vacuum shred leaves?
That varies depending on several factors such as leaf size, moisture content in the leaves, and leaf thickness. Dry ash leaves turn to dust but wet, leathery magnolia leaves may only reduce in a 2:1 ratio. As a general rule, you can expect a 3:1 reduction.
Will the KV pick up glass bottles?
Yes it will—glass bottles up to 12 ounces and cans, too, with no damage to your vacuum. The KV’s powerful suction makes clean-up a snap for leaves, seeds, mulch, blooms, branches, litter and debris.
Why should I buy an MV vacuum instead of a KV vacuum? What is the difference?
The MV lawn and litter vacuum is ideal for larger properties, commercial lots, leaf clean-up, rental, parks, city streets, school districts or municipal festival clean-up. Whereas the KV is ideal for residential or smaller commercial property maintenance. If you look closely, the housing of the MV is much larger than the KV. The impeller (fan) is six-bladed and larger in diameter. Working in combination, these two parts produce greater suction with less noise at lower engine speed than you’ll find on the KV. The revolutionary bagging system is unique to the MV and another reason many choose the MV vacuum. Both the MV and KV are available with a choice of Honda or Briggs engines and either push or self-propelled.
