Easy installation (my partner did it all in about an hour). Ease of use: Very simple to operate. The attachment they sell to blow the leaves over a fence is not needed as any part of the hose can do the trick. It mulches great. It sucks like my ex....a true champ in that department. I didn't find it all that great when attached to the mower. The mower deck attachment was SEALED to our Z....again, my partner did a great job. Leaves were wet so that may be the culprit. Cleaning garden beds is a snap with this thing. If used on a small trailer, the unit can be turned sideways, and with two bolts, it can be secured to the trailer quite nicely. BOTTOM LINE....... We were slightly impressed with the sucking action when attached to the mower. This unit is best used if you blow leaves to a central location and then use the unit to vacuum the leaves. With some rigging, you can build a chute that makes emptying the bagger much easier. If you leave the hose on the ground and rake towards the hose, it works extremely well. DO NOT use it in tight quarters with your Z. I hit EVERYTHING. The truck, the wall, my partner and helpers and almost lost it once off a curb. BE CAREFUL. Emptying the bagger.........AMAZING. A few clips and away you go. I would rate it 8 out of 10.
