Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disgusted Low quality
I just purchased this item and, after looking at the instructions, have deduced the people that write the assembly manual don't have a clue what you are trying to assemble. Poor quality stamped parts, obviously by someone who doesn't care about quality. After writing this review, I am loading this scrap metal up in the trailer and taking it back to place of purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheWiz01 Excellent Vacuum
I bought on 10 years ago and used it regularly. On the first the only complaints were:
No way of telling when the unit was getting full. Had to rely on the engine noise of the mow and vac to know it was full.
Second was unloading. When it is FULL it is really FULL! Trying to unload was a manual chore.
Last was the attachment to the mower deck. Seemed that grass would accumulate and then clog the tube to the vac when grass had moisture. Then has to stop an clear the clog. Got old real fast.
Bought the second one and everything was the same again. Worked with a welder and came up with a better discharge solution. Now it never clogs. Currently bought a Husqvarna with a 54inch mower. This mower can chew some grass and with the new fitting I am able to run mower full speed and the vacuum does it job and the system doesn't clog.
As for telling when it is full. The mower speed slows down. Time to unload.
Has anyone found a way to unload the trailer quickly. That is the next project to work on. Currently mow 6+acres. Record is filled 17 Ag-Fabs in a day.
Unloading currently is pitchfork and hands. Great exercise but really sucks.
If anyone has any ideas shoot me an email.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JR Agra-Fab lawn vac
I really like the Agra Fab lawn vac and would highly recommend it for homes with a lot of trees. It came with very little assembly and the instructions were easy to read. There was a template for the hole opening in my deck and the chute fit like a glove. The only drawbacks are the rear door is not sturdy enough and blows off when the hopper is half full. I fixed this problem with the addition of three bungee cords. Two 21" crisscrossed from the bottom door supports too the strap bolt on the side, and one straight across the back. Also the boot that fits on the chute is hard to attach. There needs to be more room at the bottom of the chute. A clear Plexiglas window in the top of the hopper would be handy to tell when the hopper is full.

these reviews tell me to just keep making piles with my leafblower and mulch them through my 1989 troybilt tomahawk chipper. that's the problem nowadays the price keeps going up and the materials keep getting cheaper no where does say where it was built. the only thing I see that is USA in the manual.

I hate the thinner rear door-know its thinner because I used micrometers to compare thickness of new model &old model.- I kept my old one-glad I did because been taking parts off it to keep new one limping.Can,t keep hoses on ether end!!! Rock blew hole though thin blower housing!! !! Both wheels - cheapened bushings are gone-spinning on wheels! Could go on but why?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carleola A Quality Product
I have owned the vacuum for 3-years and tow it behind a Kubota BX52. I modified the mowing deck adapter to fit the larger Kubota mowing deck. I like the hard shell because you can leave it outdoors and does not deteriorate like cloth enclosures. The steel impeller has been flawless and recommend it over plastic impellers. The Briggs & Stratton engine has started immediately even after winter (although I do use fuel stabilizer all the time).

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by buyer99 mediocre at best
The concept and materials seem good for this agri-vac, the problem is it seems very little thought went into the design. The way the motor and vac is mounted is flimsy, needs gussets supports welded in etc. The axle is about an inch too long requires washers to prevent excess slop in wheels. The material that surrounds the vac dump to the box has already worn out after two uses. Lastly this thing is heavy and needs to be equipped with a tounge jack, I have to use my floor jack to move the thing around my garage and get it lined up with the mower. So far I am not impressed with this product, could be much better with a few little tweaks.

For the most part, it has been a good machine. Originally, I had it attached to a Kubota B7200 and currently to a BX2670 both with 60" belly mower. I purchased the belly mower attachment from Kubota that really fits the mower deck. The dumping of the unit I have improved by building 4 wooden boxes that slide into the unit. I remove the boxes one at a time with ease versus taking a rake and bending over to drag out leaves or grass. The engine has performed very well and the metal impeller has received a lot of wear and tear and still doing well. I also have the flower bed hose attachment. I welded on a 1 7/8" trailer hitch onto the tongue of the trailer, to fit the tractor. I have 9 acres chucked full of red oaks that just proliferate leaves. It is a chore every year, but it would be impossible without this unit.
