Litter Vacuums: Clean Up Your Exterior with this Superior Tool

First impressions count a lot, and nothing looks nicer than a well-kept exterior, i.e. patio, driveway, or parking lot. Clean up your act with a litter vacuum, which removes agents such as metal washers, bottles, broken glass, cans, and gravel just as easily as it does paper plates, cups, cartons, lawn cuttings, and leaves.

Litter vacuums can be used in a multitude of applications and places. The most common places that litter vacuums are used include apartment complexes, schools, hospitals, shopping centers and malls, athletic complexes, stadiums and arenas, garages, campgrounds, industrial parks, amusement parks, popular events, etc. Its exceptional suction and wind velocities of up to 70 miles per hour offer a fast cleanup. This efficient cleaning tool is perfect for vacuuming large outdoor areas and provides extra power to sweep up heavier and denser debris. Most models maneuver easily on two rubber tires and are battery powered.

Local businesses like to use litter vacuums because they create a clean and healthy environment that attracts customers. Benefits of litter vacuums include making the facility last longer and keeping an area safer for patrons. According to CleanLink, industry studies have confirmed that parking facilities that are neat and clean attract more customers and elicit fewer complaints than facilities that are dusty, dirty and littered with trash.


Litter vacuums can be powered by electric, battery, gasoline, or petroleum depending on the environment in which the clean up job is. Electric models provide a nonpolluting power source that’s ideally suited for indoor use. Battery-powered models are appropriate for projects where propane and gasoline engines become a hazard. The gasoline model is ideal for outdoor use, while the propane model is ideally suited for outdoor and well vented indoor area use; as such it provides one machine for dual environments.

The Add-Ons
Popular accessories featured with a litter vacuum include a magnetic bar to sort metal objects; an instant action hose that helps to get hard-to-reach places clean; a leaf blower; brush assembly that provides constant pressure and loosens debris for easier pick up; a turf application kit for removal of debris from turf surfaces; and a spark arresting muffler to prevent fires.

Price Points

The cost of litter vacuums depend on the model and whether they are allocated for indoor or outdoor use. They can range from $150 to $2,500, and depending on your budget there are usually feasible options available for every type of customer. Popular manufacturers include Billy Goat, Mastercraft and DR Power Equipment.
