FrontMountâ„¢ PowerVacâ„¢ Collection Systems

A night-and-day difference from the ordinary.

With a PowerVac™ Collection System for your Grasshopper zero-turn mower, you're getting the most powerful, maneuverable and efficient leaf-collecting, grass-catching and debris-removing equipment available for turf. Built on more than 50 years of airflow research, PowerVac™ Collection Systems deliver a professional, finished look every time you mow.

 

Every PowerVac™ features a deck-driven vacuum that will make a clean sweep through virtually any lawn debris, removing wet grass and high-moisture leaves, pine straw, dethatching debris, small sticks, seed pods and acorns, paper, litter and tough weeds. Simply adjust your mowing speed to your conditions for one-pass perfection every time.

The force of the cutting blades discharges clippings and debris directly into the trash-ingesting steel impeller. The vac-driven impeller reduces and compacts debris in the vacuum collector, so you'll enjoy clog-free performance, even in wet, lush conditions, to leave a manicured look that will turn even the pickiest neighbors green with envy. Collectors are rear-mounted to retain the mower's zero-turn maneuverability.

Grasshopper's exclusive Quik-D-Tatch® Vac system allows quick conversion to side discharge or Down Discharge™ mulching in seconds without tools, and can be reinstalled just as easily, making PowerVac™ perfect for commercial operators servicing multiple accounts.

Twin or triple 4-cu. ft. (113.5 L) reinforced PowerVac™ mesh bags easily slide in and out to empty grass clippings, leaves and debris collected while mowing. Bags are made from UV-tolerant, commercial-grade, rip- and tear-resistant mesh fabric, and feature lift-up covers and protective steel side shields to guard bags from abrasions.


Model 8F - Features twin 4-cu.-ft. (113.5 L) slide-in mesh bags and a reinforced fabric top for an 8-cu.-ft. total capacity, and is compatible with 600 and 700 Series Grasshopper FrontMount™ zero-turn mowers.


Model 8HT - Features twin 4-cu.-ft. (113.5 L) slide-in mesh bags and a hinged fabricated metal top for an 8-cu.-ft. total capacity, and is compatible with 600 and 700 Series Grasshopper FrontMount™ zero-turn mowers.


Model 12F - Features triple 4-cu.-ft. (113.5 L) slide-in mesh bags with a reinforced fabric top for a 12-cu.-ft. total capacity, and is compatible with all Grasshopper FrontMount™ zero-turn mowers.


Model 12HT - Features triple 4-cu.-ft. (113.5 L) slide-in mesh bags with a hinged fabricated metal top for a 12-cu.-ft. total capacity, and is compatible with all Grasshopper FrontMount™ zero-turn mowers.

Metal PowerVac™ hoppers feature tapered bottoms to compact collected debris and speed emptying. Metal hoppers can be emptied from the operator's seat with power- or lever-actuated controls for productive, uninterrupted mowing and removal of grass, leaves and debris.


Model 15B - Features a 15-cu.-ft. (424.8 L) capacity metal hopper with a lever actuator for easy emptying. Compatible with all Grasshopper FrontMount™ zero-turn mowers.


Model 25 - Features a fixed-mount, 25-cu.-ft. (708 L) capacity metal hopper with a lever actuator for easy emptying. Compatible with all Grasshopper 700 and 900 Series FrontMount™ zero-turn mowers.

The HighLift™ 15B allows operators to raise and extend the collector behind the power unit to empty the hopper onto a truck bed or over trailer sidewalls and other elevated spaces without leaving the operator's seat.

The 15-cu.-ft. HighLift™ 15B collector offers infinitely variable emptying positions up to a maximum clearance height of 72 inches and extends up to 34 inches behind the power unit, controlled by a joystick mounted to the right steering lever. The two-part, upper and lower hose system forms a debris-free seal when collecting and easily separates when lifting the hopper.

The fully fabricated hopper features a tapered bottom that compacts debris for continued productivity with fewer stops, while specially designed Debris Xpel™ arms inside the hopper facilitate easy discharge of compacted debris.

PTO-driven Remote Vac™ mounts in place of the deck on FrontMount™ power units for easy cleanup in hard-to-reach areas. A flexible, 12-foot, 6-inch-diameter hose with a hand-held swiveling nozzle rotates 360 degrees to vacuum leaves and debris for easier handling, depositing them into the PowerVac™ collector.
