I have a 60 inch cut swisher zero turn lawn mower and was wondering if this would work and why does it specify up to 54 inch mower deck?
Tim 
from Wisconsin 
November 02, 2015
Answer
There should not be an issue with this fitting on your 60" Swisher ZTR with the extension kit. You would want to maintain a reasonable speed since the amount of discharge coming from a 60" deck can be quite a bit, so you don't want to overwhelm the vac. The reason for the 54" remark really applies to 54" tractors, not zero turns. Since you need to purchase the extension hose kit as well if you are going to use this with a ZTR, there really is no issue, but since the extension kit is for ZTR's or was made with the intention of using with ZTR's, 60" tractors then become a question mark because the extension kit is not mentioned when using a tractor. I provided the link to the extension kit as well, if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate in calling.

What type of blades would I use on my lawn tractor with the Model 55188 lawn vacuum?
Loyd Uzzell

Answer
Loyd,

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

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

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

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?
Cathy 
from California 
November 02, 2013
Answer
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.

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.
Robin Fischer

Answer
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.

CAN I PULL THIS BEHIND A RZ-4623 HUSQVARNA ZERO TURN MOWER. IT HAS A 21 HP ENGINE. I HAVE BEEFED UP THE HITCH
LARRY EAGLIN 
from Arkansas 
October 06, 2013
Answer
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.

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?
Rocco Martino 
from Ohio 
October 04, 2013
Answer
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.

How much does it hold? (Bushels- gallons cubic yards?)

Hi. How do we empty this? Does it dump or you just reach in? Thanks
Mike Batt 
from Illinois

Answer
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.
