Why a leaf vacuum with a petrol engine?

The machines offered by Steenks Service usually are equipped with an electric motor, so why then do we provide leaf vacuums with a petrol engine? That question can be answered very easily: because of its power. A leaf vacuum needs to do a lot of heavy work, and a petrol engine simply generates more suction and processing power to get the job done. Another advantage of a petrol engine is that the leaf vacuum can be used for a longer period of time. In short, with a leaf vacuum equipped with a petrol engine, you get the maximum result in terms of speed, efficiency and power.

Also, our leaf vacuums come with water spray tanks to prevent fine dust from spreading. As an option, our leaf vacuums can be installed with hydraulic brushes that help to sweep the remains together. Another option that can be installed, is a hydraulic driving unit that enables the vacuum to move forward on a pipe rail system.
