View Full Version : ZTR ruts & leaf vac question

03-04-2006, 09:37 AM
I have a JD 717A and I am getting ruts where the mowing patterns can't be changed. Will aeration or rolling or anything else help this?

Also what is a good leaf mulcher/vac that is a decent step up from the cyclone units? Is there anything for 2-4k?I am going to leave them in the woods but something to pull behind my ATV w/trailer that would suck up,mulch and move leaf piles would be awesome. I have 3 acres of woods so the Billy Goat would take forever.

Thanks for the help...I don't have a lawn business but I wish I did. I am a lawn eqipment junky!

Peco vac or the Quik Vac system will probably work. As far as thew ruts go a roller will help along with aeration, also if you can't change directions just move the tires over one tire width, this "may" help. JMO, Good Luck

Does anyone know of any websites for this or other commercial stuff with prices?

These are very good and real cheap.
