    Hey Guys,

    A bunch of guys around here have Prolines or Exmark walkbehinds with a mounted vac system. It has its own blower & motor which has a hose that goes to a 30 or 40 gal rubbermaid can which is in a frame that dumps. Anyone have any idea were to look for one or what manufacturer puts them out?

    Thanks, Mike

    Fareway,
    What I've been seeing is similar to that but the blower/motor & trash can are on the deck like the unit Hole in One set me to.

    Hole In One,
    That unit is almost it except it has a small B&S motor powering the blower and the round 40 gal can sits on a brackett which when a pin is pulled it dumps.

    Thanks Guys this info is GREAT!!!!

    Does that 5.5 hp engine also shred the clippings? OR, is it just a heavy duty vac?

    I would think so but I'm not sure.

    I called to get a price, READY better sit down!!

    $1700.00 with the Honda engine. $1500.00 with the B & S
