    Well, I purchased a trac vac system for my 36 metro. I picked it up yesturday and put it together today. MAn what a pain in the A@*. I had to make a minor alteration to get it to fit but it went on finaaly. Now I just can't wait to try it out.

    My question is does anyone else use a trac vac on a 36 metro? If so how well does it work? Do you think I should use double gators for spring clean-ups or gators and high lifts? Help is appreciated.

    Thanks Carl :dizzy:

    I don't know about a 36" Metro, but we have Trac Vac 470's for our 48", 52", and 61" Ferris WB's. We run double gators for clean ups. Works great, but you have to go a little slower cause of blowout (at least on ours you do).

    BTW, we always let our dealer do the intial setup.

    Thanks, I'll try the double gators first.

    How long do you usually run the trac vac before it becomes full?
