    anyone have experience with a lawn vacuum? I'm thinking about purchasing one by Mighty Mac--8 hsp. 4.0 bushelcollection bag, says it also chips up to a 3 inch stick--I do alot of pruning too, so this would come in pretty handy.
    It looks like a real machine as oppossed to the MTD versions- (craftsman, Troy-Bilt etc.)
    Anyone with experience--let me know what you think of their performance. I'm a one man crew so the labor savings of raking would be great!
    Thanks for the input--dkt316

    the older troy built chipper vacs worked well in the early fall, but when the heavy leaves fall they clog really easy.my walker mower is much more efficient.i keep the chipper vac mostly to be used as a chipper for spring cleanup.i just wheel it around and pick up sticks on the lawn.
