    I wanted to get a Rex vac setup for my snapper but I didn't want to shell out a few thousand dollars. I decided to check out ebay for a used model. After days of looking I found a setup that wasn't complete and not sure what brand but the engine was in great shape as well as the blower and the deck boot. $175 later it was mine! Next I ordered up some 10 inch casters on eBay got 2 for $20 delivered brand new! Had a bunch or metal stock around so used that to fab up the frame and I painted it real quick. Works great, but I will need a new deck boot this one is too big. Here are some pictures.

    I have to reconfigure the casters they can't handle anything more than flat terrain the bearing just pop out. I have a set of front forks from my bobcat walk behind that I M going to use it should be able to handle a lot more abuse.
