Ok I'm trying to decide which route I want to go here and I'm lookin to ya'll for help! Trying to decide what to do for fall cleanups. I'm a solo operation so I'm looking for the most time effecient route for one guy. It seems to me that an ultra vac or a mower mounted vac would be the most time effecient way. Blow beds/areas the mower cant get in and then just mow the yard. Using a truck vac always seemed slow to me, when I worked for another company thats all we used, truck loader and w/b blowers. Yea it was great for the huge places with tons of leaves but all my accounts are 8,000 sq ft and under. (except commercial accounts but all of them have areas to blow leaves into, arrangements have been made with all them thankfully) I'm almost sold on an ultra vac, but I have one worry (anyone using ultravacs for fall cleanups talk to me here). I'll be just dumping the bags in the back of the truck, I have a box i'll be putting on the truck but no loader. How much debris can I put in there without a loader? I used to stuff the box with a loader but that won't happen when I'm actually climbing in there dumping leaves/grass. Next situation is, I got a price of $1890 uninstalled for an ultravac 3 bag set up. Again, ultra vac seems easier to use because its so easy to take the blower housing off and its all pretty compact. But I also have the hookup with a Peco vac, pro 14 model, for a really good price. For those of you that actually use them, how do you like them? If I go with the used peco, I could probably find a used 10hp truck loader and still be at the same price of the ultravac. It's a trade off, really nice vac set up but load into the truck by hand, or fair vac and use a loader to load the truck??? Sorry for the long post, suggestions on all the questions? Thanks guys!
