Considering lawn vacuums for an X739. Looking PECO Pro 3 bagger, Protero PV18, Trac Vac 662, and John Deere's OEM offering. Do not want a trailer, or anything with wheels. So, either 3 pt mount or click n go. I don't have a rear PTO. Web sites of mfrs are confusing with respect for how/if they have models to fit my tractor. Any opinions on the vacuums? They all seem over priced.
I have an old craftsman 2 wheel swiveler, 2 can model, that works pretty well. I'm considering upgrading it to a bigger motor and putting on a carry all 3pt hitch mount. Maybe this is the best options? Certainly the cheapest. I'm guessing I'd need a deck adapter, and because it's a 6", an 8 to 6" reducer (vacuum) is 6". And maybe some new hose. Probably can be done for $400 or so. The capacity is a little small, but I've been using it to satisfaction as a tow behind for about 10 years now. What do you think?
