  9 Questions
Q: What type of blades would I use on my lawn tractor with the Model 55188 lawn vacuum?
by Loyd Uzzell from Texas on November 22, 2013

A: Loyd,

I wouldn't suggest running out and getting mulching blades, as your standard blades would work fine.

Q: Is there a way to add collection bins inside the unit so they could be dumped into a pick up truck and hauled away?
by Mary Marshall from South Carolina on November 18, 2013

A: Mary,

That would be the first time I have ever been asked that. I do get what you mean though. If the bins were in the right place I can see that working, but I cannot say we carry a product that would fit inside.

You can test it if you would like, but unfortunately I have never been witness to that application.

Q: I have a John Deere X304 with a 42" mowing deck. Will this fit?
by Steven Ahlmer from Utah on November 03, 2013

A: Steven,

Agri-Fab equips the 55188 with a universal deck adapter that would fit many tractors up to 54" wide, so I feel it would work for your Deere.

To make sure you could call Agri-Fab at (800) 448-9282 and have iron confirmation.

Q: Re: item #55188, I understand tax issues preventing you from shipping to Calif., but why does Home Depot only offer a 1year warranty, when you offer three?
by Cathy from California on November 02, 2013

A: Cathy,

The reason the 55188 from Agri-Fab cannot be shipped to California is because the engine does not meet the environmental standards set forth by the CARB act.

Agri-Fab would be the one responsible for all warranty questions and I have no clue why they would offer less of a warranty with Home Depot. Hopefully you are seeing a typo. I would either call Home Depot or ask Agri-Fab by calling (800) 448-9282.

Q: I'm finding the pattern for the 2000 Series Cub Cadet 54" deck does not match my Cub which has the heavy duty cub deck. The shape of the deck is different from the "stamped" out decks and the deck adapter does not fit over the deck. If you do try to mount it making sure the adapter is flush with the bottom of the deck, there is about an inch of the adapter sticking up past the top of the deck. There is also a different type of stabilizer bar that is bolted under the opening unlike the stamped decks. Can this still be modified somehow to fit the heavy duty deck? Thanks for your time.
by Robin Fischer from Pennsylvania on October 20, 2013

A: Robin,

I would want you to contact Agri-Fab with this inquiry for the simple fact that they will know any adapter updates or accommodations not yet published.

Please contact them at (800) 448-9282 with your mower year and model number so they will be prepared to assist you in the fullest.

by LARRY EAGLIN from Arkansas on October 06, 2013

A: Larry,

I feel you will have no problems towing this unit with your tractor, and I know you will be pleased with the durability and quality of this machine.

You will have to make sure you purchase the Zero-Turn attachment hose that is sold as an attachment with this unit or else it will not work.

Zero Turn Attachment Hose

This will give you the length you need to fit to your zero-turn.

Q: how does the Agri Vac get moved from property to property? Will it hook up to a ball hitch & if so what are the tires rated for mph?
by Rocco Martino from Ohio on October 04, 2013

A: Rocco,

The Mow and Vac is not designed for long distance higher speed towing. It would have to be transported in a highway safe cart. The machine was not designed for highway transport, so it does not come equipped with a light kit.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: How much does it hold? (Bushels- gallons cubic yards?)
by Hank Shadwell from South Carolina on October 02, 2013

A: Thanks for your inquiry. This item has a large 26-Bushel/32 Cu. Ft. Capacity

by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Hi. How do we empty this? Does it dump or you just reach in? Thanks
by Mike Batt from Illinois on August 26, 2013

A: Mike - the Agri-Fab Mow-N-Vac has a dump lever that allows you to tip the entire hopper back at about a 25 degree angle and dump it out.

Wow, It Works Great!
I purchased my Agri-Fab Mow-N-Vac Tow Behind Lawn Vacuum from Mowers Direct in early November 2013. I am a 70 year old retiree, with approximately 3 acres of lawn, populated with many trees, which means lots of leaves to clean up each fall! I have a large vegetable garden and I use the leaves and grass clipping for mulch and fertilizer.

I have to say, I am completely satisfied with, not only the lawn vacuum, but also with the service I received form Mowers Direct. The machine was... more
