That looks like the DR commercial tow behind lawn vacuum ... do you use just in the Fall and Spring for cleanups ?? If not, how else do you use it ?? Do you have the add-on containers that you can put in it to bag the debris ??

I also noticed that you have a JD lawn tractor ... is that specifically to pull the tow behind DR vacumm ?? Or, do you use it to mow with commercially ??

I only use the DR for cleanups, its very hilly around where I live so its the quickest and easiest way to get leaves picked up and back up to the truck.

I do not have anything inside the container, i just tilt it up and dump onto my trailer.

The JD 445 is used only for pulling the vaccum and some minor snow moving in the winter.

Own it, sits on a little over an acre of all concrete, trying to get an outdoor RV storage going so the shop basically pays for itsself.

Its 50x50 with a little 16x16 addon. So 2756 sq. ft. with bathroom, office, ect. Putting a bigger door on soon and doing some rearraging. Tearing down the office and moving it to the other side of the building.. also adding a shower and washer and dryer.

i see there in the back of your truck you have what looks like a blitz gas can, i had those for about a year and sometimes when you would take the cap off the spout the gas would literally shoot out because of all the pressure build up. finally i found new cans with flexible spout at a place called augusta saw and mower where i get my weedeaters worked on. i'll never buy one of those supposedly self venting ones again

Yeah, they do build up a lot of pressure.
