Trying to decide on a leaf vac for the fall. I was thinking about one of these: Trac - Vac 880 or BlueBird 86CV. Anyone have experience with either? Or a recommendation? Thanks in advance

Do you Have a Zero turn Likea lazer of turf tiger. If so you might Be Better off With's trac-vac's 1060. It's Made for A Zero turn. If Youhave a Tractor style The trac-vac's Have worked well For Me On My walk Behined's and Zero turn's. they seem to Be well Made.

Right now I would pull it behind a Honda 4118, I plan on buying a Exmark Z either this fall or next spring. I have looked at the Trac-Vac you mentioned, but the specs say it is for decks larger than 61". I plan on getting a 60" deck. Thanks for the info on the Trac - Vac.

Bigger means it can handle the loads from a 60" plus size deck which is GOOD. That's what you want. Size is bigger takes longer to fill.

Peco Vac, makes one you can tow behind you also, and for ZTR's.

Turf King i would order 6Hp Kohlers With 16" Impellers for walk Behineds. they where Rated 60" and higher. i Put them on 50" deck's and would suck up wet grass all day With out missing a Beat:D

Spoke to the company today about the 880 vs the 1060, only thing I do not like about the 1060 is the motor mounts to the mower not the cart. I guess its not that big a deal just make it harder to unhook. Thanks guys
