    Do you want a vaccuum for leaves or snow? <G>

    Where were you taking your trailer in the snow??

    Just curious.

    Do you want a vac for your walkbehinds, or do you want an actual lawn vacuum?

    We run Trac Vac 470's on all our WB's for 8 years now. Only complaint I get from my guys (guys 5'7'' of less) is that it can be tough seeing over the front-mounted collection barrel.

    Besides that, they're great. Those babies can suck up your customer's cat if you're not careful. LOL

    There is still about 12inches of snow on the ground,cant wait for it to be gone so I can get something done!!! In this part of the country there is alot of pine trees and needles,I am tried of raking them so I figured a selfpropelled walkbehind vac will work great??:confused: ps.here is my baby for cutting snow:D
