National Hardware Show “Sneak Peek”: LeafMate
LeafMate, which offers a Proseries line of products that make yard clean-up faster and easier, will exhibit at The National Hardware Show May 10-12. LeafMate’s patented 2-piece rake and pick-up system unites a traditional rake with a sliding catcher “scoop” to easily collect yard waste without bending. The system can save time and ease back strain. Another product that caught our attention was LeafMate’s Yard Waste Bag Funnel. Municipalities across the U.S. are requiring the use of standard 30-gallon paper yard waste bags, which are friendly to the environment but can also be flimsy and tip over. The funnel fits inside the large paper leaf bags, providing the bag with full support and protection. Leafmate also offers the Collapsible Bag Holder that, like the funnel, is crafted of a durable PVC-lined polyester material to contain even the most ragged yard waste.
