Your better off with a Accelerator's bagger and meg-mos. Meg-mos are great at sucking (up) pine needles and other things. The 470's Claim to fame is with the 6hp Kohler and the 16"Impeller It will suck up WET GRASS all day long with out clogging because there is no 90 Degree bend. For going threw a narrow gate you would have to take off the blower and boot. The blower is easy until you go to put the 6" hose back on. The boot is easy but all of this is time consuming. In the pic is a 2000 TT with a 6hp trac-vac.Originally posted by Fareway Lawncare
Yes it helps! Will it suck up debris on hard surfaces like a dedicated vac unit? How long would it take to remove the unit to get through a narrow gate?

I have 4 of them mounted on 52's and 61's. I love them. Only complaint I get is from guy's who are short and have a hard time seeing over them. The only other downfall I see is the dust that vents out of the top of the barrel.
No!! And the more you pack in the heaver it gets Then you dump on the ground and lift a tarp twice Oh i have over 700 dollars left over using the accelerator then the trac-vac.Originally posted by Fareway Lawncare
J.G., I have Accelerator's & run them w/double gators. If you kept the double gators & Added the Shredding of the Trac Vac & the increased suction it provides won't you be able to Pack Allot More leaves into the container & Pick Up Allot more matted and or Wet debris?
