Vacuum Cart measurement

Recommended Posts

JCS
Since I gotta make sides for the top of my exsiting cart I need to know how much bend should be in the exhast hose. Is it a 90 degree angle or less? I guess the measurement from the ground up to the bottom on the exhasut hose would be what I am looking for since the tractor and vacuum height should be the same for everyone unit.

I don't think it matters, as long as there's a gradual bend in the hose. They made several types of cart covers, carts, and baggers... [img]http://simpletractors.com/images/new_in_1973/vacuum.jpg[/img] [img]http://simpletractors.com/images/700_series_images/700_atch2_lg.jpg[/img]

Poked around the site and all I could find was the dump cart collection system. Picked this up yesterday, is it homemade? The blower and pulley system look factory to me. This whole unit pins to the back of the tractor. The door on the collection bin is hinged on the back to empty. [img]http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/uploaded/Brent_Baumer/vac.jpg[/img]

That's an original Simplicity setup... here's a couple more: [img]http://simpletractors.com/images/700_series_images/718_vac_collector_cg.jpg[/img] Here's a hard-sided cart...
