Two new purchases

Thought I'd share two of my recent purchases that I'm pretty excited about since it's fall time and gearing up for fall clean ups.

Ultravac for my LZX


27 HP Little Wonder Leaf Vacuum

thank you. I thought it was a good deal, so I grabbed it. it was always stored inside and serviced regularly. we have an 8 ton single axle dump truck that will carry the debris.

We run several LZX606's. What did that bagger run you? Also, how do you like the weights on the front? I've never bought any but I think they'd be really handy.

The bagger was 2485.00 after pa 6% tax. it definitely is a pricey purchase, but after looking for used units, which I had a hard time finding, I just bought new. my lzx is a 52", so it has two bags on the back opposed to the 3 that the 60s have. I'm glad I got a new one because of all of the addition mounting hardware that goes along with the bagger. plus you need to get the right pulley for your deck.

My luck, I would have had to buy all that extra stuff if I bought used. the weights on the front definitely help balance the machine when the bags are full. I didn't notice too much impact on my lawns on the front casters.

overall, I like the bagging unit, but I wish they would put an audible sensor when it's near full like the new walker mowers that have their bagging system installed. you can tell it's full when debris starts blowing out from the deck and by that time, the tube is filled and you have to stop to clean it out.
