    Used the new toy over the weekend. I"m really happy with the results. Since the leaves aren't very deep yet I would have expected it to suck them all up and it did just that. Definatly need to wear ear protection since the motor is right behind me. It really chopped the leaves up as well. I used the "dumper", next time I'm going to used the dividers in the cart and see how that works. Working out all of the bugs before I have to do it for real at a customers yard. I'm glad that I went with C.R. rather than Trac Vac, C.R. backs up like a dream. It's alittle weird turning when you are going forward because of the hard mount - you just have to make a wider turn.:)

    Got mine in a couple days ago. I like it alot and can`t wait to use it on a lawn with a deeper layer of leaves to see if it works as well as Woodland Products says it will. The only problem that I`m having is blowout in front right side of my Lazers deck. It`s got Excaliber blades(high lifts) on it right now. Any ideas ???

    Go to the dealer an get some low lift blades for your Exmark. I run them on my Lazer HP 52" w/ an UltraVac and have very little leaf blow-out.

    Is that the one you pull behind like the agri-fab? What was your price? And do they work well with a ZTR other than the blowout problem....Marks Mowing Service
