    Does dixie chopper make a leaf collecting system for there mowers. I dont think they do, but does another company make one you can put on a dixie chopper.

    They made one, but it was not embraced well. Peco makes one for DC. www.lawnvac.com I have not used the peco, but a few members can tell you how they are.

    I have the trac vac on my dixie,if i had it to do over i wouldnt buy a dixie to vac with,either mulch with it using doubles,(the dixie does a great job mulching leaves) or buy a mower that bags better,the dixie deck has way to much deck blowout to collect efficiently,id suggest a walker to collect with.The trac vac does work great,the deck just blows out a lot of the leaves ,so you gotta go over it twice anyway,so you might as well much them.

    From what I understand, the Peco does well on them, too.
