    Guys, I'm thinking of buying a leaf and debris(cutt grass)
    vaccum/blower. i have seen pics of some equip. that sucks it through a big hose and then blows it out the other end.

    I have also seen trucks made especialy for this but cant seem to find any on any search anywhere. and cant remember where i seen them.

    Does anyone know what I am talking about and know where i kind find them. (website or lead please) :dizzy:

    are you talking about like a Billy Goat leaf/debris loader?

    yes, do you think they would be better for business than a regular bagger

    well, yes. My leaf collection operations goes like this:
    I've got a vaccuum system with a clamshell bagger on my Toro ZTR, I pick up leaves until I'm full go to the dump trailer and dump the load on the ground, my billy goat leaf loader is mounted on my dump trailer, and I pick up all the crap with the billy goat and shoot it into the dump trailer. I think that's a fairly common set up.
