press release

The model 0791 and 0795 garden blower/vacuums from Skil's “Urban Series” have been designed for removing leaves in smaller gardens. They have a 2 800 watt and 3 000 watt motor respectively and reliably clear leaves and debris away from entrances, footpaths, driveways and lawns.

Effortlessly remove leaves in only two steps
In the first step, the leaves are blown into a heap at a blow speed of up to 270 kilometers per hour. Then all you have to do is simply turn the knob to switch the tool from the blower to the vacuum function. In the second step, the tool reliably vacuums in the heap at 13 cubic meters per minute. During vacuuming, the integrated shredding function chops up the leaves for composting, reducing them to a tenth of their original volume. The collection bag holds 45 liters, which means that it normally does not have to be emptied in between.

The model 0791 and 0795 leaf blower/vacuums are comfortable to use due to their low weight of only 3.2 kilograms, the support wheels that come complete with the tool, the adjustable shoulder strap and the ergonomic handle. Moreover, the model 0795 leaf blower/vacuum has a continuously variable blow speed of 150 to 270 kilometers per hour, enabling it to be adapted to different conditions in the garden.

“Easy Storage” system for space-saving storage
The model 0791 and 0795 garden blower/vacuums can be space-savingly stored after use by simply hanging them up on their “Easy Storage” hook which comes complete with the tool. Multiple hooks can be combined to form a rail on which different Skil tools then hang close together and are quickly at hand.
