Got the new piston and rings put in today and threw the motor back in,She started rite up ,no smoke at all, Runs real strong :D We tried it out on the lower lawn area.I'll have to say, I'm quite impressed It cleaned up the leaves and cut 10 day old grass with power to spare,I still have a few bugs to work out but nothing major,I filled the cart 1 1/2 times it really packs it in there tight Sure beats raking ;)

Paul, what is your opinion of the metal deck adapter? Did you ever use the plastic one? I am looking for comparisons since I currently run with the plastic one and it works pretty good. The going rate for that metal adapter seems to be $100 to $125. I am not sure if it is worth that much and am seeking opinions from anyone who has used both. But agreed, that sure looks like a nice unit! Thanks in advance, Erik

Pretty impressive leave clean-up job Paul. Is that a 10 hp or 9hp? Sure you've stated before but I've missed a lot of posts in the past months.

Paul, Here's a vac I was building and never finished. I find it easiest to just mulch them in place.

Got a question on that setup. Does it chop up the leaves or just vac them up and dump them in the bag? Best of luck...

Rick, If you ment mine, I was going to run them through the mower. I had started out with the thought of mounting a seperate deck under it. But I think it would be better to put the engine and blower on back of the tractor, like Pauls. If you don't chop them first, it fills the cart pretty fast. If I don't sell it, I have some other ideas running through my head too.;)
