Leaf Clearing Equipment
Leaf Clearing specially in the autumn can be a big task not only for the home owner but also for local authorities, golf courses, parklands, etc. A selection of our products will help with the maintenance of lawn areas such as leaf collectors, garden vacuums, leaf sweepers and leaf blowers. Intended for use on lawn areas for the clearance of leaves, grass clippings and litter, these machines are available as manual, towed or trailed. Alternatively, other products from our range can also be used effectively for collecting leaves, grass and debris from lawns, such as our paddock cleaners and our paddock sweepers.
Using a lawn sweeper or leaf collector is a very efficient ways of keeping a lawn in prime condition. Whilst push sweepers are the ideal choice for small grass areas, the best leaf sweepers for larger lawn areas are the towable models. These leaf clearing machines are available as self-powered, or PTO driven and trailed and can be towed with an ATV, UTV or compact tractor. Useful for sweeping leaves, twigs, grass clippings, acorns and other debris into a collector hopper, the waste is ready to be composted or disposed of easily. The MTC-120E leaf collector from Wessex has a perfectly balanced hopper, secured with a spring-loaded pin to keep it in position when the machine is in use. The hopper can then be emptied using a hand operated winch. The brushes are designed to protect lawns and delicate turf surfaces from damage and stimulate new grass growth by the brushing motion. Uses include clearing grass, leaves and litter from estates, parks, large gardens and sports turf. A tractor leaf collector is also available.
The towed leaf blower moves leaves in bulk getting them ready for collection. The leaf blower in effect, replaces a manual rake making it simple to move leaves from flower beds, edges of drives and pathways. A hand conversion handle is supplied as standard with this leaf blower.

Professional Leaf Vacuum
This large unit will clear up large areas of lawns and leaves. The PSU fan unit with its powerful 9HP Honda engine is mounted onto a two-wheel chassis with an integral tow bar. The favourite way of using this leaf vacuum is to attach it to the rear of the leaf collector trailer. This leaf collector trailer can be supplied with a kit to modify your own trailer, or SCH will collect it and modify it for you. The discharge hose is attached to the rear of the collector trailer. The operator thus is able to suck up fallen leaves efficiently. A combined team of a driver and a vacuum operator can clear along drives and road edges at very impressive speeds.
The fan of this unit chops the leaves, greatly increasing the capacity of the collector meaning less empties per day. This leaf collector can be used in conjunction with a hand held blower, blowing out leaves from flower beds and awkward areas and then collecting them with the vacuum collector. The fan belt is driven and not fitted directly onto the crankshaft of the engine
Large Capacity Trailed Leaf Collector
This large capacity leaf collector trailer from SCH can be towed behind a tractor and is described as twin cut. Tractors have a centre rear discharge, blowing the cut grass/leaves into a limited size collection hopper where frequent emptying is extremely time-consuming and frustrating.
The unit can collect large amounts in one fill, speeding up labour and saving costs. The powerful motorised fan mounted onto the front of the FGTRCL sucks up the green waste from the cutter deck and propels it into the trailer which has a low centre of gravity making it extremely stable even on hilly ground.
A deflector plate on the discharge shoot is adjustable for even loading of different materials. A web strap anchored at one end, when pulled, removes most of the waste from the unit via a large rear hinged tail gate. Wide profile pneumatic wheels greatly reduce markings on soft lawns and it can also be used on level tarmac and gravel surfaces. Side discharge cutter decks can be fitted with a 'boot' to accept the collection hose.
Hard Surface Towed Sweeper
This sweeper benefits from a sprung floor, to allow the sand to flow back through the base of the hopper and at the same time collecting debris such as leaves and twigs. A differential mechanism on the brushes allows the unit to be manoeuvred in tight corners without the wheels scuffing; height adjustment is simple. Both wheels drive the pick up brushes giving excellent sweeping power.
The main drive of this unit is transmitted via metal gears. A cover plate is supplied with each machine to cover the mesh floor in sweeping operations where all debris is required to be collected. (Please see pictures).
Overall width: 1350mm (51").
Working width: 915mm (36").
Collector capacity: 270L.
