To make the most of your bag’s capacity, the TurboStar System fills it from back to front using the powerful air vacuum created by the integrated fan.

TurboStar System

Whatever the weather, the proven TurboStar System ensures a precision cut and great collection every time. Even in damp conditions, the integrated fan works like a vacuum cleaner to draw grass blades up straight before cutting; it also removes leaves from your lawn. After cutting, the same air vacuum blows the clippings into the collection bag smoothly and efficiently. The TurboStar Signal alerts you in good time when the bag is almost full.
