    I finally got around to taking some pictures. This is of our new (old) mower. Its a 15hsp kohler commando 36" belt Toro t-bar w/ 5.5 hps honda trac-vac. The engine, electric clutch and tracvac are new this, and the body is 10 years old. It doesnt have a stripe kit yet, but I will get one soon for it.

    these are pics of our lawn cut. The dirt patch is from when we took out a bush, we never planted any grass there.

    And 1 more pic of the mower. It has an independent (of the T-bar) blade shut off. It is basically a toggle switch, down blades can go on, up they shut off, wont turn on. It pulls in reverse easily and you can pull with 2 hands because of the blade thing. I dont think it will ever bog down with that engine. It reduces leaves to dust, and puts them all in the barrel. Leaf season just got a lot easier.

    With MEG MO blades on you would not have had to buy that vac as the MEG MO blades have enough blow to put the grass or leaves in the barrel.

    OEM blades throw the grass or leaves from the deck where as the MEG MO blades blow the grass or leaves out cut 4 or 5 times smaller and 2to3times further and steady. this is why we can blow the grass up in to that barrel.

    Looks like a beautiful setup. I hope it works as good as it looks. I want to do something similar with a trac vac. Especially for this time of year. I think you're better off WITH the vac, no matter what they say.

    I'm going to have to try these out one day. I'm trying to get back in so hopefully next season I can justify the cost and get a set. I've read 75% good and 25% bad stuff about them. Too bad i can't see them in action. I don't know any one near me with them.

    just about any blade will throw the clippings right up into that barrel under perfect conditions. And afterall, that's all we ever mow in right guys? :rolleyes:
