Has anyone used a Dr power 9.00 premier?

    I have used a 13.74 commercial unit but I am thinking about getting the 9.00 premier because it is smaller and it will fit in my trailer. My doubt though is the power. Is the power of the 9.00 comparable with the 13.74? I am going to be vacuuming a huge amount of leaves this fall and I need something to make it through. Thanks for your help.

    Yes. I have used both. (I work for one of the Factory Stores in CT).

    The commercial units have a standard single-point hitch with a solid axle. (Typical trailer-type setup.)
    The premiers have a plate that bolts to your tractor, then the unit gets quick-pins through two holes, creating a solid-mount setup. The major difference is that the premier will be directly behind your tractor at all times. This is great for a zero-turn user (which it was originally designed for) but takes some getting used to with a lawn tractor.

    The other major differences are size and capacity.
    The other factors (suction power, ease of use, durability, etc.) are the same.
