    That's nice, but couldn't that bin be any larger? Is that 7-8 cubic feet of something?

    If you didn't have a leaf vac mounted to something with a dump bed!! ;)

    It does make a good pair though. I assume you dump curbside and suck it up??
  3. I think it is 12 bushels. It does mulch them up as well as the blades.

    You assume correct Dave. But before the truck vac we dumped in the woods.

    Also muni's curb side vac too.

    I've been argueing with a neighbor in the biz that, blowers, WB blowers and plows on the ZTR is faster than this system.

    I proved him wrong. Similer lawns (size, shape, beds, trees, and leaves) 2/3's of the time he did it in with 2 guys to his 5. And they had to use tarps too.

    No manual moving of leaves with this vac.

    Joshua, if you have time during leaf season to keep you mower spotless you need more work. Total waste of time to clean it when your working will leaves daily.

    I'm surmising your machine is a 1999.

    (Since you like to debate eXmarks, I thought I'd demonstrate my extensive eXmark knowledge.)

    Do you prefer that seperate engine drive blower to a belt drive ?

    Have you compared to two? Or anyone using a separate engine driven vac to a belt drive?

    Well I have to post mine.

    My answer to wether I like the separate motor is yes. Mine has an 8hp BS. What is nice is, if I have a pile of leaves that I can not get to the lawn to vacume, I can slide the hose off at the deck and suck the leaves right up. This is also nice for the leaves that accumulate in loading docks. They always get soaked and are impossible to blow out.

    On the down side I have lost many pair of gloves.:D

    Oh mine is almost 9 bushel
