    A freind of mine is getting out of the buisness and called me today and offered me his great dane Chariot 61" with the kohler engine I believe its 25 HP liquid cooled. It has 86 hrs on it and I can probably buy it between 4500 and 5000. He told me GD dealer said that gd doesn't make a collection system for it. Does anybody have one of these with an after markect system on theirs. I would prbobably only use this mostly for leaves in the fall and a few larger properties I cut that I don't bag/

    Protero and PECO both make aftermarket collection systems for the Danes

    The Peco collection system is the one we had which is was decent. It did the job well and was reliable and built tough, the only problem that was annoying was that it kept popping off the deck whenever it hit something like a root etc. Problem was easily solved and overall a nice unit.

    I have a protero vac was happy with performance, but the construction left something to be desired. Brackets were constantly breaking and the shroud
    around the fan had to be replaced at 250hrs of use.
