Heres mine from last year. Going the same route this year. Just moved the vac to top of the gooseneck and switched mowers to the Tank S.

I think your talking about the top pipe not the hose. I got one each time I bought a vac they came with the vacs. The pipes steel and is quite ridged but you put enough pressure on them and they do bend.

came with the vac, and i bought it used just like you see it. I actually only used it for last year november, it snapped a crank, and its been fixed, for a month, just not assembled yet, and seeing as how i have one clean up left, i don't plan to assemble it for this year, maybe next year i will use it.

hey guys, I dont own a leaf loader and dont need one right now, but I have a power bagger to fit on my ztr, and I was thinking that taking the bags and bagging the mulched leaves into contractors bags is a big hassle. I was thinking maybe building a large plywood box to fit into the bed of my truck so that I can just take the bags off the ztr bagger and just dump them into the big box, instead of fooling with the contractors bags and get my worker to help me unload it and dump it. anyone tried something like this before?

Take the bagger off, lift it into your truck bed and then blow out the bed with a blower. Repeat.
