Any updates? How is it going?
I know that this is an old post but I was wondering how you liked the bagger on the 757? I was looking at getting one for my deere. Does it do a good job collecting leaves? Does it clog or get bogged down alot? Any info that you have would be greatly appreciated.
We've been really busy the last month or so now that school is back in. My brother will be graduating in December though
We have a lot of little projects that need to get done. Our small storage shed needs rebuilt (a big white oak fell on it), we have some repair to do to the ezdumper, we need to build a leaf box for the dump trailer, we have some snow preparations to do, we started our aerations (bearing in the gear reduction box went out, waiting for that to get repaired), we've been bidding on snow removal jobs, and the list goes on Sorry for the rant
We fabbed a mount for the leaf loader that attatches to the rear gate. We just have to build the box for it now. I will upload some pics of that when it's done.
We don't use the bagger on our 757 much anymore. I believe the baggers are designed differently now, the blower I know is completely different. So what I have to say probably doesn't apply. We havn't used it at all this year, we might put it on this fall for a few lawns.
It picks up the leaves alright, we have to go one direction (no stripes) due to blowout on the discharge side. It doesn't really bog or clog much. I personally probably wouldn't buy one again just because we don't have much use for it, we never bag lawns and if there are just a few leaves we mulch them. When the leaves start piling up we blow them and use the leaf loader.
Nice set up
Ya thats a really nice setup I really like the truck!
What happened to the ezdumper?
The ezdumper has some good rust action going on. We just need to make some welds and maybe a few patches to keep it together!
How much did you pay for the enclosed trailer?
I believe it was around $6,000
verry nice seat up
