    Just took advantage of their sale.
    I wanted to get one for this fall, but I have a large property that we have to bag, and it has 75% crabgrass.

    Well, that LESCO machine SUCKS!
    Literally, it sucked up that wet, heavy crabgrass just great.:weightlifter:
    I can't wait to see what it does with dry, light leaves.



    Anyone have pictures of the trucks they use to blow into with their truck loaders?

    16 horse briggs. When it sucks up a big clump, it knows it, but pushes it on through.
    I haven't measured the hose, but its probably about 10" in diameter.
    It didnt' seem to have alot of suction, just when I started it up playing with it, but when in material, it works, and it saved ALOT of labor today.

    When the crabgrass kicks in, we had to start using our 2 bag baggers, and throw the bags up in the truck, then climb up and dump out the bags.
    This property, generally will fill up a 8' dump body on my F350 dump truck.
    Today, I just about filled up my 12' stake body, and didn't have to lift a blade of grass!

    LESCO's flyer has great financing, and has $300.00 off the machine, but the promo is only for a couple of weeks.
    I am trying to decide if I need a 2nd one!!
