I thought about that when I got it. How easy is it to rotate it down? How you like the vac? Does it suck leaves when wet?

Only time I wished it had more power was when I had 17 yards of dyed brown mulch on the trailer and 10 yards of pine bark mulch on the truck on a 1/3 mile slope. On straight roads the power is there.

It was 4 bolts for the assembly rotate it and re bolt it. Oh.....and the clamp that holds the pullcord to the frame....5 minute job and worth the time! I gotta be honest, don't waste your money on the electric start. My vaccum is 6 years old and it starts on the first pull every time. Very important to turn the fuel off when you are driving down the road though, so the carb doesn't leak into the crank.
I love it, it will suck up wet leaves, just gotta go a little slower when sucking them up.

Ah I see. STI has been out of stock of a lot of things for a while. I went there to see if they had the Exmark Commercial 2 and they were out, so I went to Heretick's in Hopewell.

Knabe usually has a good stock. They had nice Grandstand and a proline 21 a while back I was looking into. Do you know of any other good dealers in the area?

Yeah, my favorite is Cavalier, they sell Kubota, Husqvarna, Trac vac, etc. We also have Arthur's Electric and Terry's small engine.

I live right down the road from Terry's, bought three Toro push mowers from them and my trimmer and blower. The salesman is nice but the turn around time for repairs is long. What does Arthur's carry?

Also Old Dominion Tractor I hear is good, they let me demo a Hustler Super Z and X one. Plus STI has good staff, let me demo a Turf Tracer.

No name yet, this is just a side business for now, actually never thought I was going to do as well as I am doing now. For now I am that random kid everyone on this forum hates who is just trying to get by while he is in school. Next year I am going full time and will have a name, trailer, bigger equipment, ect.

If you see a green F150 with an Exmark 21 and a Snapper push mower in the back, chances are that is me
