TKV20 Material Collection System
The Ultimate Material Collection System
Collecting material in your yard doesn’t have to be a chore. For years, we’ve heard the requests for a simple, PTO-driven system to match the capacities of compact utility tractors. Our solution? The TKV 20: the ultimate material collection system. From grass in the spring to leaves in the fall, the TKV 20 will transform the way you think about collecting material in your lawn.
Our solution starts with a robust blower system that utilizes your tractor’s PTO. At the heart is a 1/4-in. thick (6.35-mm) steel fan that generates airflow throughput speeds over 100 mph (161 kph). By mounting these components on the TKV instead of on the end of your mower deck, weight distribution remains uncompromised, ensuring that your lawn receives a level cut that you expect.
Naturally, a blower system with an appetite for eating yard waste requires the method for holding material. With the TKV, material is transferred from the steel blower chute into a large, 20-bu. (705-L) hopper. Once full, simply press the rocker switch to open the gate and unload material, right from the seat of your tractor.
When you’re finished collecting, two steel storage stands help with storage. Choose the optional Caster Wheel Kit for the bottom of these stands to further simplify maneuvering during attachment, detachment, and storage.
- Convenient dump-from-seat unloading with rocker switch and electric actuator
