I bought a Protero Pro Vac for my Bob-Cat ZTR 61. It has the 25 horse Kohler. I like it very much.

I got the smaller vac of the two that they offer. Its a really solid heavy duty machine. Very well built. The blower runs off a pulley on the right hand blade. I can also take the whole unit off in 3 minutes, ones I got the sequence down.

I can empty it right from the seat. If I want I can stick two trash barrels into the hopper and it will fill them.

On the down side it seems to be useless in wet thick grass. It clogs in no time. But that could be do to the fact that my Bob-Cat clumps bad in the wet grass. One clump, and its clogged. Also its big. The hopper is a big square mettle box. It is easy to hit things. Theres not much visibility with it on. Iv taken bark off trees. Iv whacked telephone pole wires.

All in all I'm very happy with it. I would makes sure I have plenty of hors power though.

Anyone use Blue Bird catchers? That's what Yazoo/Kees uses as their OEM catcher, I think. They have several different styles available.

Mike, I've never used a catcher on mine, but from the way you talk and the fact that you have the 27hp Kohler.....why not just go with the 3 bag Ultravac?

I use a trac vac on my 23hp Toro Z-Master. I do not like the way it performs. It works great on other mowers from what i have seen, but it tends to clog too much due to the stamped deck on the toro, unless conditions are really dry. IMO you would want something like a trac vac, unless you have a truck loader. If you have a truck loader then the peco vac would be ideal because you could just dump it next to the vac and continue working and then suck up the pile at the end of the job, instead of having to empty barrrels on a constant basis.
