    I have this White Blower, Lawn Vac/Leaf Collector...

    It works pretty good... picks up and shreds well (makes a lots of dust though). I broke the zipper on the bag however so it's out of commission. I can't seem to track down a replacement bag but I don't really want to know what it would cost in any case.

    I've taken the bag to several shoe repair shops with no luck. Are there guys that specialize in these repairs?

    The funny thing is... I don't even think I need it any more at my new houes...

    Try searching for a tent and awning place. I had a couple grass catchers off my troy-bilt walk behind with zippers that blew out and finally figured out that a place like that is where to go. Ours here is just called "hutch tent and awning" They had several lawn boy bags there waiting to be picked up as well... Things are different here in kansas, but you never know, it's worth a shot!

    P.S. Iv'e never seen a shoe with a zipper before... Maybe a sewing shop, or an upulstery shop. I tried both but was finally refered to the was I mentioned above.
