Why Buy A Patriot Lawn Vacuum?

Is the BV-2455H Lawn Vacuum the Right Model for You?

Our model BV-2455H is identical to our model BV-2465B except that it is powered by Honda’s easy starting, quiet running, GX series commercial engine. Like our model BV-2465B, the BV-2455H is a versatile 2-in-1 machine ideally suited for the property owner (up to 1 acre) whose primary intent is to remove leaves from their lawn and shred them to reduce their volume. As an added bonus, the unit converts to a powerful blower with the simple flip of a lever. The BV-2455H is also popular for parking lot maintenance since it can pick up light weight debris such as cigarette butts and wrappers without the need to constantly bend over.

Patriot Lawn Vacuum Features 24″ Wide Leaf Inlet

Patriot’s lawn vacuum has a 24″ wide front inlet which allows you to suck up a large volume of material in a single pass. The snout can be set down low, with about 1″ of ground clearance, for use on smooth hard surfaces. It can also be raised up high, with about 6″ of ground clearance, for rougher terrain or when the leaves are really deep. Five height adjustments allow you to find the setting that works best for you.

See the BV-2455 5.5 HP lawn vacuum demonstration video for an example of how our yard vacuum blower makes short work of leaves and other yard debris.

Lawn Vacuum Features Heavy Duty Rotor

Now that your yard waste has safely entered our BV-2455H wood chipper leaf shredder it meets a formidable opponent, the rotor. Weighing in at just over 14 pounds and measuring roughly 12″ in diameter, this is where things happen!


In this photo you see the bottom of the rotor. The first thing you’ll notice is the two flail blades (painted blue here for ease of identification). The flail blades are stamped from thin steel sheet and then hardened. They are designed to shred leaves as they pass through the machine. The flail blades provide a volume reduction of about 4:1 for leaves.

The second thing you’ll notice in the photo are the eight steel fan blades of the rotor. These blades create the high air flow responsible for both the unit’s inlet suction and blower discharge velocity.


Commercial Grade 5.5 HP Honda GX Engine for Lawn and Parking Lot Vacuums

The BV-2455H has a powerful 5.5 hp Honda GX series commercial engine. Don’t be fooled by the “implied” one horsepower difference between the BV-2455H and the BV-2465B. Run side-by-side there’s no way you’d say the BV-2455H has less power. Honda’s reliability and performance are why it’s the number one choice of rental centers, professional landscapers, and municipal work crews. It is designed to run all day long.

Large Shredded Leaf Collection Bag for Lawn Vacuum Blowers

The most common option for users is to operate the BV-2455H in the “bagging” mode and accumulate the processed yard waste in the unit’s large 4 bushel collection bag until it is ready to be dumped. The bag features a dust flap to direct the discharge air away from the operator. The back of the bag unzips for easy emptying. You can empty the bag while it is attached to the machine by unzipping the bag and pulling/pushing the contents out. This can be convenient if you are planning to spread the material out over your garden or around plantings. Another option is to disconnect the bag using our convenient quick release clamp located on the deck of the unit. Then the bag can be easily removed and emptied into a compost pile, wheelbarrow, trailer, yard waste bags, etc.

Powerful Blower for Leaf Vacuum Systems

Patriot’s BV-2455H has the added bonus of a powerful built-in blower that discharges air at approximately 140 mph. It provides the obvious benefits of clearing off a patio, driveway, or parking lot. Less obvious is how it can drastically reduce the time and effort required to vacuum up the leaves in your yard. Here’s how it works:

Most yards are not buried in a thick layer of leaves when we decide it’s time to clean up. Take the lawn vacuum to the center of your work area and switch it into the “blowing” mode. Make one pass across the work area. You will have sucked up, shredded, and discharged the 2 foot wide path below the unit. However, in the “blowing” mode you will have also cleared a 3 to 4 foot path to the left of the machine. Therefore, in one pass you have cleared a 5 to 6 foot path and not pushed around the weight of any leaves. Now turn around and do the same thing. In two passes, you’ve cleared a 10 to 12 foot wide path and only pushed the weight of the vacuum itself. Continue this process until you get a nice thick layer of leaves on the yard. When the leaves are 4 to 6 inches deep, switch the unit to the “bagging” mode and begin sucking up the leaves. While the bag fills more quickly, you are minimizing the distance you are pushing the weight of the shredded leaves. With a little creativity, you can do a lot of yard work with a minimal amount of effort.

Compact Lawn and Parking Lot Vacuum Blower

Patriot’s gas leaf vacuum blower is versatile yet is similar in size to the average push mower. With the handle collapsed, the Patriot BV is small enough to fit into common vehicles such as mini vans and SUVs.

Light Weight Leaf Vacuum Unit 

Weighing only 81 pounds the Patriot chipper shredder is one of the lightest units available. This makes the unit much easier to maneuver around the yard or load into a vehicle for transport.
