    Has anyone attached the cyclone rake to a Walk Behind(Exmark
    48" ). If so could you briefly describe the attachment. Also does the suction hose work OK when cleaning out large plant beds etc.
    (speed loading,clogging etc.).
    Thanks

    Build a stand on the front of the cyclone and use it like a sulkie. Just kiddin, unless you want to try it.

    Go to trac-vac.com and look at the 470 model vacumn for the walkbehind. I put one on my emark viking two years ago and it works quite well. :)

    it turns just fine.i ride on my bull rider sulky and steer her right and left with no problems,but when it starts getting full it has a tuff time turning.plus you can't go across a hill or anything steep when shes full.look at it this way.lets say you have the CR on a lawn tractor.now can't you back up and turn with the tractor i would think so.i will have the TTHP in the am with the CR on it.i will take some new pics since i can't find the ones i took last week.

    I have use the cyclone rake and the attachments work great on the 6hp model. It was sucking up stuff that had been in a bed for a few years. Lots of power and works good. Not a bad unit for the money.
