    Have any of you folks used a TracVac (I was interested in the one for a 48 "walk behind). I was looking at the ad and with all the leaves falling...looks appealing right now.

    Thanks for your comments.

    I've used a Trac-vac unit for several years on a Toro 44" walk-behind. It has worked great. Throw on some gator blades and it will really pack in the leaves. The "cons" to it are: limits visibility, takes up more space, more of challenge on hills. I recently sold my Toro and am going to fit Trac-vac on my Wright Stander 61" mower. BTW I also have accessory hose attatchment for sucking leaves out of shrubs/beds. Any questions?

    tpirobert,

    Sounds good....will it do a decent job on alot of leaves, or do you still have to blow off the grounds pretty well ?

    and what is the approximate cost of the unit ?

    Thanks for your help.

    jeffyr: Save your money. Its not really worth it.I started collecting this way. WB are not designed to carry the extra weight of a collection system.If you really want to collect get a dedicated ZTR like a Walker.
