    I have one. Does a good job. Very big and bulky though. Not practical for all yards.

    I've recieved several differant pieces of literature from them over the years, including the video. I don't doubt that they work good, but considering the size and the cost of the unit, I think you would be better of using a collection system from your mower manufacturer.

    Im one of the few on here that hated it. It was not pratical for my yards, way to big. It measured over 13 feet long and was like trying to drive a bus around the yard. If you are doing wide open areas with no obstacles would be all right. Also look out for low hanging limbs, I tore the hose loose twice in under 2 minutes and knocked everything over in the yard. I sent that thing back. Ill take my exmard with the QDS bagger over it anyday.
