The GVM550SM-20 is a self-contained, chassis mounted leaf collection system with a 20 cubic yard hydraulically dumping hopper. It is powered by your choice of an 87 HP Kubota Tier 2, 4-cylinder gas engine or a 74 HP John Deere Tier 4, 3-cylinder diesel engine. The heavy-duty radiator is protected by a bottom hinged corrugated & perforated steel screen to maximize air flow. Engine torque is transferred through a quick acting, over center 13” clutch with 2.25" diameter PTO shaft. A fluid drive coupler is an available option.
You choose between two-piece side hinged rear doors or a single top hinged door. Optional hydraulic single door latches are available. A 52 degree tipping angle provides easy dumping. The GVM550SM-20 is built on an 8" x 3" structural steel tubing frame which mounts to an approved 33,000 lb. GVW chassis.
The 28" diameter impeller has six 3/8" thick T-1 steel blades. A Heavy-duty impeller with 1/2" thick blades is an available option. The impeller housing has replaceable ¼” thick abrasion resistant steel wear liners. The GVM550SM-20 has a 16" diameter x 10' long intake hose assisted by an up/down hydraulic cylinder and controls that are conveniently located on the intake nozzle handle. A 3-axis hydraulic hose boom is an available option.
