    Been considering a new stander but need this machine to do double duty in the fall. Anyone know of any stander that can do it it all or or these machines just for cutting grass? I'm using a Toro w/b w/ a trac vac mounted on the deck w/ a 44 gal. can.

    yeah, alittle blow out, i've found w/ heavy leaf loads it's best to pre-mulch

    I use my Wright 36 fixed deck with a Gobbler for small lawns and quick pick-ups. I'm VERY happy with how it picks up DRY material.... even pine needles.

    Down-side is it's VERY limited capacity. I would not want to be without it for the quick pick-me-ups! For the heavy duty work I have a 445 AWS John Deere with a three bag Power-Flo.

    Obviously you need a Leaf Stander, go talk to your dealer.

    Is that anything like pre-cutting, pre-driving or pre-fueling?
    Personally I like pre-showering the best, although pre-crapping takes a close second.

    Next thing you know we'll be...
    Hey wait!
    I get it!

    Next time I walk up to a girl, I'll just plant a kiss right smack on there, nice as can be, out of the blue and all.
    Then before she smacks me I say "WAIT, I was just pre-kissing."

    lil early to be drinkin Topsites, wait, no it ain't. Pre-mulching as in running over the big fat fluffy leasves (open chute) then sucking thru the trac-vac, thusly, mulchin them again. Doubling the barrel capacity.

    So the first time over you weren't really mulching them?

    It's all good, I use the pre expression myself but just felt the need to expose it for the silly expression that it is.

    i would convert the trac vac that is on your walk behind to your stander...we are doing the same thing at this very moment, called trac vac and it's going to cost 500 to get the stuff i need to do it
