    I have it, and it works great. I've used it all fall and winter for leaves. I will continue to use it until spring cleanups are done and then back to mulching.

    I use the ultra vac for leaf clean ups and it works well. The only problem is that it doesn't hold very much. I have the ultra vac on a 48" LZHP. If I use double blades it will hold more but I have to go over the property two or three times do to the blow-out. I've never used another bagging system so I have nothing to compare it to. Overall it's engineered wonderfully and only takes seconds to istall/uninstall. I will be selling the 48" soon to buy a 72" and I will upgrade to the new ultra-vac in the fall for leave removal.

    Here we go again!!!

    Double blades are when you put two blades on each spindle, instead of the usual one. It's worth looking into if you are not familiar with it. Either way this is not the thread to discuss it and before you poats any more questions, at least do a light search through Lawnsite and learn the basics. Seach feature is up at the the top right under the banner......try searching for "double blades" and click match any.

    Grasshopper has a trailer leaf collection that will fit a lazer and you can use the exmarkultra-vac than run the hose to the grasshopper collection unit. holds 27 bushels and you just tow it behind.

    Hey , that sounds like a lot of leaves. I like it and will look into it. Also sounds like it could set me back a little. How much counter weight up front?

    phibrall, you need to look at the dates of the posts you are replying to. These threads are over 6 years old.
