Leaf bag smashing

crunching a truckload of leafs


Packing 50 bags of leaf material so they won't bounce out takes a special touch.

Smash....smash...........smash those bags down.

That's how an expert leaf bag smasher does it in a clutch.

A vacuum pump or even a hoover would cut down the volume considerably more.

A lot of my mom's neighbors are now putting their leaves on the side of the road bagless. I think the city is able to vacuum them up somehow, and every time I drive past those huge piles of biomass, I dream of being able to swoop in and vacuum them up first. :-)

Rent a big mobile shop vacuum and a generator. Put both on the bed of the pickup and you're ready for drive-by biomass. ;-)
