    I would like to hear from experienced owners of ZTR vac systems to help me choosing the right collection system in what seems to be a very limited selection of vac systems available for ZTRs. I have only seen 2 that interest me on the web due to size limits and they are PECOs and PROTEROs dump from the seat. Are there any others like this out there? Please help me with the pros and cons of a belt driven blower running off the deck spindle(proteros setup) VS. the motor powererd blower off the side (PECOs setup) I need to collect small oak leaves, PINE NEEDLES, thatch, and of corse the weed heads on 1 acre+ lawns. But as you know at over 3000.00 for this equipment I cant afford to be ignorant. Any help, suggestions, complaints, or what you use would be appreciated.
    Thanks Mike

    I have had this unit for 4 years. Belt drive is the only way to go in my opinion.
