Also want to mention that the Slap-on ad banner is now on lawnsite.com. They move fast.

If we bag leaves were doing JUST leaves. The tarp will get pulled into the open trailer, dump leaves and go again...OR the we dump the leaves at the curb for pickup. We dont have city work, so no dust/noise issues. Hedge clippings get tarped also, or we use the triple bagger on the Z to suck it up, then dump em in the woods.

Maybe ill buy one of these just to see how it works!

Pietro, thanks for the feedback, and for giving consideration to whether the Slap-on attachment may help you with your daily work. That is all one can ask. Have a great weekend.

I think the timing is right to promote this product. Good luck.

Is there a trash can sold by granger that works best with this unit?

I hope the timing is right.

You know, the Slap-on attachment will work on either the Grainger Tough Guy 48 or 55 gallon square receptacles, but I think you are going to be better off going with the 48 gallon receptacle. The 48 gallon receptacle weighs six pounds less, 10 pnds vs 16 pnds for the 55 gallon receptacle, which is all the less weight you will have to carry around, and the 48 gallon receptacle is about $30 less expensive. The 55 gallon receptacle does have a 25" opening vs the 23 1/2 opening of the 48 gallon receptacle, but the 23 1/2" should be about the same width as your rake. You will still be able to fill the 55 gallon bag with either receptacle, so why not go with the lighter weight and less expensive receptacle. Thanks for the good question and let me know if there is anything else I can help you with. Almost forgot, the product number for the 48 gallon square receptacle is 5DMV5, or, if you decide to go with the 55 gallon receptacle, its number is 6ylp6. Have a great Labor Day.-- Take care, Eric

Make it EASY for people to find your product.

You just mentioned the new website, yet there is no linky.

I'm not interested in going back thru the thread to look for it - if you know what I mean.
