Mowing the carpet

Carpet Mower is a sturdy 4-wheel self-propelled lawnmower. The top-mounted 2-stroke petrol engine with pull-cord starter drives a powerful suction fan. The adjusting levers on the wheels enables a much lower setting to be used that the lawn mower variety, though most of the components are common to both models. The fan blows the sucked-up air backwards into a large collecting bag.

Basically the only difference between this and a normal grass-cutting rotary lawn mower is that this one has no cutting blade but has a suction fan instead.

Optional accessory - steel flexible duct which connects the engine exhaust to a ceiling-mounted extractor vent.

Sort of like a dangerous petrol-powered vacuum cleaner?

Yes... that's a good summary.

The extractor duct seems like a pointless accessory.

There must be fuels with sweet smelly product scents.
