LEE'S SUMMIT, Missouri (October, 2017) – The ever-versatile MV and KV residential / commercial leaf and debris vac line-up now includes an optional Briggs & Stratton Professional Series™ engine.

From residential and smaller commercial to large commercial leaf and debris cleanup, these outdoor vacuums can be operated on turf or hard surfaces and boast high suction power with a debris reducing serrated impeller for greater debris reduction.

The multi-use commercial MV series has a 29” gobbler door that adjusts from the operator’s position for convenient switching between hard surface, turf or hose applications. The top loading 40-gallon bag  holds up to 50 pounds of debris and its unique top fill design ensures optimum fill and helps keep dust out of the operators face. Composite housing components are abrasion resistant and won’t rust or dent. A micro adjustable crank-style height control makes for simple transition between turf and hard surfaces. A commercial duty self-propelled model is available with three-speed transmission. Other options include a hose kit and disposable bag liners eliminate debris bagging.

For residential or smaller commercial cleanup, the 27” wide KV series vac also offers variable height adjust for turf or hard surface work. Twelve-inch tires on the push unit and rear wheel drive on the self propelled unit make operation simple even in hilly turf areas. An optimized nozzle configuration improves suction and debris flow and handles hedge clippings with ease. An integral dust skirt keeps dust down and away from the operator and a zipperless bag makes for ease of unloading. Options include a shredder screen for additional reduction of dry leaves, an optional hose kit with telescoping handle and optional felt bag for more dust control. The ‘TKV’ model has an on-board two-inch chipper.
