I picked up some scrap metal from work 1x1 box stainless and 1x1 angle and 1x2 box. I have a 3hp vac walk behind unit that I would like to mount as a trac vac unit off my DA1918(Sunstar). Has anybody built one from scratch and have ideas or plans/prints. I have a chopsaw,bandsaw,drills,mig&tig welder and some fab skills. But always looking for an easier softer way.:D Thanks Dave Seitz

Dave, I have a Landlord with a 50 inch mower and a 5 horse (Briggs) vac blowing into a trailer. You may have a problem with the lack of power from the 3 horse vac on you Sunstar. I usually have to run in 3rd gear. I mow in 4th without vac. My problem is too much grass going through system at one time. A local dealer that sells vac systems says I need a 8 horse motor. When this motor quits I will be putting a 8 horse on vac. Hope this helps. Dale
