Yard work got you down?  Make the leaf raking gathering part a bit more fun with a Flowtron Leaf-Eater mulcher/shredder.  The Flowtron LE-900 eats leafs, grass, thatch, pin needles, twigs, etc… and compresses about 11 bags down to 1.

Just Shred and Spread For a Beautiful Yard
Transform your yard into a showplace, without all the sweat and strain. With the help of its extra-large, 21-inch-diameter funnel, the Leaf-Eater effortlessly reduces wet or dry yard waste–including rain-soaked leaves and grass clippings–into nutrient-rich mulch or compost that you can reuse right in your flowerbeds or vegetable garden. With this efficient tool, creating a great yard is as simple as shredding and spreading!

Two-Step Process Shreds and MulchesLeaf Eater
This system utilizes a two-step process that shreds and then mulches for fast cleanup and maximum waste reduction. Simply feed double handfuls of material into the hopper and watch the Leaf-Eater do all the work.

Patented Design and Powerful Motor Shred Debris Fast
Thanks to its patented design, double heavy-duty cutting lines, and powerful universal motor with circuit breaker and reset button for overload protection, the Leaf-Eater shreds wet or dry leaves, thatch, grass clippings, pine needles, and even paper as fast as you can load them.

Use the elastic bungee cord to hold your leaf bag in place, or place the Leaf-Eater atop your trash container (with a leaf bag inside) for mess-free disposal. Additionally, the Leaf-Eater’s adjustable pressure knobs allow positioning of the hopper to any angle for easier loading; the hopper also rotates 180 degrees for compact storage.

Range of Shredding Adjustments for Flexibility
The Leaf-Eater offers the convenience of a range of shredding adjustments from coarse to fine–up to 30:1 particle size-reduction. A sliding control lever that’s easy to read allows you to choose the right setting for the job.

Lightweight Design and Built-In Carrying Handles for Easy Portability

Quick and Easy Assembly Right Out of the Box
Out of the box, the Leaf-Eater is a snap to put together in minutes; you’ll only need a #2 Phillips-head screwdriver. Maintenance is equally effortless thanks to the removable motor intake filter–just remove and clean periodically. The Leaf-Eater also features a convenient built-in storage compartment to hold replacement cutting lines, gloves, and safety glasses.
