Anyone know what a trac vac for a walk behind sells for new, I thinking about getting one for leaves?

well I have 4 of them now for a couple of years...think they were like around 1700 or so depending on the engine you wanted when we got them...not so sure how much they are now.

mine are the ones with the 44 gallon container on the front

I figured they would be around $1500-1800, how do you like it for leaf cleanups?

I've got one, I think it's a Model 470. I bought it last fall, I think it was about $1600 with the 5.5 Briggs. Did lots of cleanups, ranging from 5k to just over an acre, great little machine! Paid for itself in about 4 days.

they work very well...2 downfalls though. the person operating better not be real short cause at times ya have to look over the collection barrel..most of the time ya just see around. second, the leaf dust that comes out of the vent up front can be a real pita as it comes back in your face

I have four of them. Hour meter on each vac - 1386 - 1798 hours - kohlers 5.5 I did replace two of the engines, 1498 & 1640 hours with new 6.5 honda's - engine & new housing unit - $1K. They work well for us, gotta watch though where your going - and they suck up everything!
