Grasshopper Introduces Improved PowerVac Vacuum Collector

 PwerVac latch 

Building upon nearly 50 years of airflow research that has made its PowerVac the most productive vacuum collection system for homeowners and turf-care professionals, the Grasshopper Company has introduced the new Model 8HT PowerVac collector.

The improved design of the 8HT collector includes a hinged metal top with a spring-loaded metal latch that locks the top in place, allowing for easier removal and emptying of the twin 4-cubic-foot bags. Also new are tougher, reinforced mesh bags that are more tear- and rip-resistant.

Combined with the powerful deck-driven Quik-D-Tatch vac drive, the 8-cubic-foot capacity collector makes a clean sweep through everything from thick spring grass, wet fall leaves and even pine needles and other yard debris for a picture-perfect finish with every pass.

The 8HT collector is compatible with all Grasshopper mowers, including existing PowerVac collection systems, and is perfectly suited for homeowners and landscape contractors maintaining small- to medium-acreage properties.
