    Yes, you're talking about the deck-powered system right, like eXmarks' ultra-vac?

    Those would be nice, but I got these system for $500 and $600, and those were going to cost something like 2K, since I couldn't find any used ones. I'm not sure on capacity either. the Peco (on front) sure does hold a lot, and quite a bit fits into the Hasty-Vac also.

    I bought my bagger new 3 years ago for $1800. It holds 12 bushels. And actually it is a really nice unit, takes about 15 seconds to take off the fan part on the deck. So I can switch back and forth from discharging to bagging in seconds. It'll be for sale when I put the bob-cat up for sale this winter, it'll either go with the bob-cat or if someone wants just the bagger I will sell it separately.

    Why are you selling all that equip? Getting out of the biz, or just changing things up?

    Just going to be changing things up a little bit. I'm trying to scale things down a little bit, going to be switching to 48" and 54" mowers, both John Deere. And I have been having dealer issues. To get parts for the bob-cat I have to have them ordered from Bob-cat of Lansing and shipped to me. And my dixie chopper dealer hasn't exactly kept all their promises that they said to me. So I just want to "start over" and just buy from my deere/stihl dealer that get all my handhelds from. It will also allow me to go to just one dealer for all my mowers and handhelds. This way I won't need to go to 3 different dealers for parts and other things.

    New truck, replaced the F-250. Got a Western MVP plow to go with it. 6.0L gas.

    Did my dad's landscaping this time last year, it's had a year to grow in now. Overall it looks good. Needs mulch and some clean-up, and we didn't get around to planting annuals this year, but that aside, i like the way it turned out.

    Here's the before pic. We ripped everything except a couple trees out, and re-used the boxwood. Everything else is new.

    During construction. Building the ledgerock wall was fun!

    And here's some "After" pictures. Like I said, needs cleaned up and mulched, but that's for next year.
