    We are looking into buying a dual 44gal Trac Vac system for our new rider, I would like to know just some pro's and con's about it. By the way its an 05 model with about 2hrs of use on it and were buying it for $1100.00, good price or not? Thanks in advance.

    If it is the model 655 I would not. This is just my opinion though. If you look through my past posts you can read about it. The basic synapses I have is it is huge, does not hold much, blows dust everywhere, and did I say it is huge !!!

    If you want some spare parts other than the inlet hose, discharge hose and motor I would more than willing to work you a good deal..

    Well you have the frame that attaches to the mower, the snout that attaches to the deck (in my case a dixie chopper) the top section that attaches to the cans. I will keep the cans for use in other things.

    Have you made any decisions on if you will get this unti you talked about?

    I dont know yet kipper, this is as bad as buying our home,lol. I just don't know if I want to spend over 8k for a mower when I could get into a Lesco or a newer used rider. I definetly will be getting a rider of some sorts and that Trac vac.

    This may not work for you but the capacity of that unit is a little less than 12 cubic feet. Almost the same as an Accellerator bagger with the extender....

    If you do end up going with the lesco, get the peco collection system with it. It has made my life much much easier.
