Foresteel Leaf Trailer with the unique and original Underframe Suction Unit option can save you time and minimizes manual labour. Works in combination with Foresteel MIDvac and PROvac versions, great best in dry, but also in slightly wet conditions. The unit is brushless and works best if leaves are collected relatively soon after dropping to the ground, before grass grows through and limits the pick-up efficiency.

FT-1600 MIDvac leaf trailer clearing leaves in Krootuse municipality.

Kristel Mülle-Vaik, Niitvälja Golf

It’s a time-saver for us. In retrospect, the main reason, we invested in Foresteel FT-1600 Leaf Trailer was it’s efficiency and multifunctionality. We definetly were much more efficient last leaf season and saved a lot of time thanks to the trailer. We were also able to keep the pathways and areas between the tracks clean that previously were difficult to handle. The Underframe Suction unit is a great tool as it allows single person to work with the unit. What makes it great compared to others is that it’s easy to unmount the leaf equipment and use the trailer for transporting soil and other goods around the area so we’re able to use it for the full season.

Paul Marley Head Greenkeeper, EGCC

I bought a Foresteel FT-2200 leaf vacuum because the price was so good in relation to the quality. The FT-2200 helps us work smart, not hard - we managed to clean two areas of the golf course in less than a day. Normally it would have taken us two days with twice as much labor. This means that we can get much more done during the time of year we need to be extra efficient due to less staff. Our productivity also increased thanks to the large towing capacity and user-friendliness.
