    I was thinking of running meg mos on my Lazer Z with the Ultra vac will this cause blow out or clogging? I want to increase suction . What are your opinions on this combo?

    I believe the only engine able to power this combo would be the new XS.

    You'd be way short on power.

    Here is a good setup.....

    You NEED the antiblowout baffle. Don't have it....your wasting your time. Get it, use it, and use a set of Gator Magnums or Gator Hi-lifts.

    But the antiblowout baffle is what give you the suction and cuts OUT blow-out!

    Just an update. Running this combo about a week now and the results are incredible. Vacuum effect is great but more impressive my ultra vac is filling with dust so shredded and compacted it looks almost like compost. A worthwhile combo. Hope this makes life a bit easier.

    What kind of trees are your leaves coming from. I am running MM's with an excellerator bagger with the leaf extender and 50% of the leaves are almost whole. Regardless they are providing good vacuum with little blowout on my Toro Z500.

    The Toro front baffling is different than the eXmark and your catcher is not slowing anything down at all or holding the finest dust for that matter.

    Close the baffle to the tightest position and try it.
