    Any body know of a leaf vac that is driven off the PTO of a small (25hp) tractor.
    I have 5 acres and mow about 3 of them. They get covered with leaves in the fall and want to pick them up and deposit them in the woods. I'm thinking of making something but need to get a blower/vac assembly---hopefully something that is off-the-shelf. There must be some company that makes a unit like this. Anybody know???????

    Hi Tony,
    Thanks for the reply. I called Trac-Vac and talked to their tech guy. Unfortunately my tractor has a rear mower deck so there unit won't work. We talked about me buying the blower and making my own vac head. He said they already tried that idea and it doesn't work. He said you need to have the a mower to whip up whatever it is you are going over and then the vac will suck it up. Back to square one. Any ideas????
