I have been using the ultra vac for 2 weeks, mand I have to say it is a bit pricey but worth the money,besides what in comm. equipt. doesn`t cost a lot. It is easy to empty the bags, and if you cut first it really mulches the leaves & don`t fill as quick. The jobs are looking good and and getting done a lot quicker & I am not as tired as when I did with WB. The vac has been a wise decision.
