Mantis / Machine


Mantis is a one-man operation, multi-functional machine; its main function is a leaf blower and a vacuum. In the fall it can blow off the leaves off the streets at the same time it can vacuum. With this powerful machine, it increases the working efficiency of people.
It is efficient due to its fast speed and its powerful functions. Because it blows and vacuums at the same time, it greatly reduces the dust caused from blowing. It also has a grinder and a precise detachable storage box, so it grinds the leaves and collects them, and then dumps them into the nearest trash can.
