Fall cleanup: Last chance to improve your yard

 

It’s never easy to keep things neat and tidy around the acreage. All summer, we had mowing and maybe some storm cleanup. Now that it’s fall, with trees shedding their leaves, it’s the 9th inning of the annual seasonal game.

The Mighty Mac Vacuum-Chipper-Bagger makes leaf clean up a breeze. With the VCB you no longer need to rake, pile, haul, or bag leaves.

Dual zipper tabs on three sides of the collection bag make for effortless dumping without having to remove the bag. Three forward speeds and reverse, plus six vac snout height settings, allow for the perfect combination of speed and height for your specific needs.
