Grasshopper unveils new 8HT PowerVac collector



MOUNDRIDGE, Kan. – January 23, 2013 – 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 four-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 eight-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.
