« Up to 10:1 Shredding Action
For the largest collection capacity in the industry.
The DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuum uses a patented steel impeller blade that’s serrated. As leaves are drawn into the vacuum impeller, they are chopped and shredded into a fine mulch. This unique shredding action reduces up to 10 bags of leaves to just 1 bag of mulch. That means more debris is collected before having to unload.
Lifetime Warranty Impeller »
Don’t worry, you’re protected.
All lawn vacuums have an impeller. But only the DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuum features an impeller with a Lifetime Warranty. Made of solid steel, our Shark-Teeth™ impeller is guaranteed against bending or breaking for as long as you own your machine.
« Hardshell Collector
Will never tear, crack or rot.
This super-durable polyethylene collection box stands up to any kind of weather, and will never crack, rot or tear. We tested “heavy-duty” fabric collection bags, but they simply do not hold up. Our polyethylene collector is more expensive to produce than fabric, but we believe the extra cost is worth every penny.
Dust reduction system »
It lets you work in comfort. Imagine working in a cloud of dust.
That's what its like when operating some lawn vacuums. Only the DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuum has a patented Centrifugal Separator™ that draws materials into the collector with centrifugal force and expels the cleaned air with little or no dust!
« FlexShaft Coupling
Protect the engine from damage.
The FlexShaft Engine Coupling connects the engine shaft of the DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuum to the impeller shaft. If a rock or other solid object is vacuumed up and it suddenly jams and stops the impeller the coupling absorbs the stress and shock load of the jam, and it protects your engine from damage. A DR exclusive.
Ready-to-Use Mulch »
It’s the perfect food for all your plants!
The leaf mulch created by the DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuum is a great soil enhancer. Add the mulch directly to your soil to increase organic matter, encourage good soil structure, and increase biological activity. Or let the mulch “cook” for several weeks in a compost pile. It will quickly become the perfect plant food for your garden.
« Built-in Wood Chipper
Chip branches as you go.
Say goodbye to ugly brush piles. The DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuum is available with a built-in high-speed chipper that makes fast work of prunings, small saplings, and branches up to 2 inches in diameter. As a branch is run through the chipper, the wood chips are deposited into the collector, so there’s nothing to pick up or clean up after chipping.
Subaru Engine »
The most powerful lawn vacuum engine available.
For the very best in leaf collecting performance, there's our 13.74 Pro-XL model powered by a Subaru engine. In over 20 years of testing power equipment, we've never found a better-built, more reliable engine.
It's designed with the same technology found in your automobile engine and it has fewer parts than standard air-cooled engines, so it runs quieter and lasts longer. It is superior in every way to the side valve and even overhead valve engines typically found on power equipment.
« Super-Duty Steel Frame
It won't buckle under big loads.
Most lawn vacuums are supported by light-duty cart frames and wheels which limit how much weight and volume they can carry. With its 1.25" tubular steel undercarriage and 1" tubular steel tilting bed, the DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuum is built more like a heavy-duty road trailer than a cart. Even the 13" wheels are larger and wider than the small casters commonly found on other lawn vacs.
