The PRO XL-321

The PRO XL-321 combines our biggest collector with our most powerful engine to provide extra muscle for the most demanding cleanup conditions.

The top-of-the-line 19.6 ft. lbs. torque engine (389 cc), in combination with the massive Shark-Teeth impeller, creates tremendous airflow that virtually eliminates clogs and leaves your lawn beautifully free of debris.

The easy-opening clamshell collector and backless cart (with a steep 60-degree dump angle) ensures that unloading is fast, easy and thorough.


Premier model leaf vacuum reduces leaves and yard waste

Collect, Shred and Dump!

Using the DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuum drastically reduces the volume of leaves and other materials it collects. It starts with your mower deck which provides lift to pull lawn debris up into the spinning blade. Then the partially mulched material is channeled into our Shark Teeth Steel impeller which further reduces it before passing it in to the collector.

It's not JUST for Leaves!

In spring the DR is great for cleaning up the wind- and storm-borne debris that collects on your lawn. During the summer, it makes a terrific high-capacity bagger that will leave your lawn spotless with very little extra effort on your part. And you can use the utility cart any time of year for hundreds of hauling jobs.


Features

Accessories Add Versatility

Our Vacuum Hose lets you get at yard waste in places you can't drive your mower. And the Mulch Discharger allows you to broadcast all that debris right where you want it.

Optimal 8" Hose

Our 8" hoses offer the ideal balance–narrower hoses clog too frequently, and wider ones lose compression and suction power. We tested extensively and found 8" to be the optimal diameter.

Modular Design

Our collector top removes and folds up, and the engine rolls away on its own built-in trolley. The result: simple, space-efficient storage and year-round versatility.

Reduce a Mountain of Leaves

Our Shark-Teeth Impeller, in combination with the action of your lawn mowing blade, reduces your leaves to a fine mulch during collection. The result is rich, organic material that you can return to your garden or compost heap.

Tow-behind DR leaf vacuum converts to a utility cart

Utility Cart

With the upper collector and power unit detached, the cart bed makes a great all-purpose utility trailer. Pin hitch it to your riding mower (or ATV) and use it for all kinds of landscaping and hauling chores. The PRO XL-321 model has a 800 pound capacity.

Keystart on the tow-behind DR leaf vacuum

Electric Start Available

The PRO XL-321 is available with electric-start (with manual recoil backup). The 9-amp battery recharges during use, for instant starts with the turn of a key.

Collector trailer on the tow-behind DR leaf vacuum

Huge Capacity

The PRO XL-321 model holds up to 321 Gallons (43 cu. ft.). The high-speed impeller reduces the volume of leaves to a fraction of their original bulk. So you'll be able to collect huge amounts of leaves and debris before you have to stop and unload.

14-inch wheels on the tow-behind DR leaf vacuum

Big Wheels...easy Rolling!

Our 14" diameter wheels are bigger than competitive products and create a smoother roll. You can convert to dual wheel setup with our Wheel Upgrade Kit.

Trailer jack stand on the tow-behind DR leaf vacuum

Trailer Jack Stand

Heavy-duty Trailer Jack Stand, for moving the machine easily when not in use. Adapts to pin hitch heights of 8" to 15". Stand lifts out of the way during operation. 4" diameter wheel. (Optional accessory).

First yard vac ever purchased
Posted by: CHARLES G. from Street, MD on 11/14/2018
Rating: Product Review Stars: 4.00 star rating
Great machine so far. Have 4 hours on it. Made some minor adjustments like the hose support arm, drilled a hole for a pin to keep it from popping out of holder bracket. Tapped up cable end that was very sharp frayed end. Purchased extra 8” cuff and 8” thumb tightening stap so hose can easily be removed on both ends from machine or mower deck. Little unhappy to have to buy a hose extension. I thought it should come with at least 9 feet of hose new with the machine. The short piece they give isn’t long enough for any mower setup. Over all very happy with the design and performance for the price paid on sale.

Saves me days of work

Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
I believe in having the right tools to do a job. I have been very happy with my DR POWER ProXL Leaf are Lawn Vac, with it saving me days in fall and spring clean up. It would cost me a fair amount for outside help or more of my time to clean up my heavily wooded 4 acre site. What would take me couple of days multiple times during the fall/spring before raking leaves onto a tarp takes me a couple of hours on a Saturday. Additionally, the occasions where I have had a warranty need for some items - has been great support and service.

Over all a 5 star machine
Posted by: James R. from Lincolnton, GA on 10/28/2018
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
This is a great machine! Does very good job sucking up leaves, grass even small sticks and grinding to small pieces. Only thing is that I wish it had a better support system for the suction pipe from the mower to the vacuum. I had to use the pipe picked extension because I have a zero turn mower and the pipe will drag the ground easily. Over all a 5 star machine!

Pro Vac
Posted by: JOANNE V. from ROCHESTER, NY on 09/08/2018
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
After 2 months of use: well built heavy duty machine easy attached and used by small weak female, electric start a snap to use Lots of vacuum power carries a lot of material Engine loud opens, dumps, and closes needs a tail gate option when used as a cart needs a hitch attachment for use when used as a cart only. Not easily converted. Pro model Clamshell does not easily store. Requires significant disassembly, misleading video online. jack is fixed mount, seems like jack could be shorter above the tongue and gets in the way of the back of my lawn tractor maybe that could be put on with a U mount so it can be individually adjusted.

I'm nearing 70 years old and live on acreage infested with big leaf maple trees. Love them but not their leaves. I used to use my PTO driven blower on my tractor to wind row the leafs on my lawn then use a rake and human mussel Imine to load into a wagon. I finally gave up on getting the leafs out of my flower beds. No problem now. I use the extension hose and can clean my flower beds and suck up the wind row of leafs in my lawn. Perfect.

I love my new machine and I have only had to set the machine power at idle to vac grass clippings while mowing there was plenty of needed suction at idle. Looking forward to fall to suck up fallen leaves I am sure it won’t be a problem as increased idle will complete the job successfully.

I have used DR lawn vacs in the past, and they have always been one notch above the rest of the field. They are not cheap because they are not built cheap. The Service Manager, Mike, at Anderson Outdoor Power in Demotte, Indiana, is a very knowledgeable person and is a DR dealer. This PRO-XL is a beast. Everything in the DR advertisements is true. This is the best machine on the market. Kudos to the engineers who designed the clam shell dump, you have saved my aching back. Kudos to Anderson Outdoor Power for caring the best machine on the market.

Two Complaints
Posted by: Jimmy H. from Golden, MS on 11/28/2017
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
First off is the XL model is something I should have bought a few years ago. It took a two day job and condensed it into a 1 hour job. I'm 69 years old and getting the leaves up every year was a major problem for me. My wife bought this for me to save my life from working to death. Now, I did manage to put this together by myself. However, the top part is totally difficult and I never could get the back end to wrap around the bar and fasten to the Velcro. Also, the premium jack stand is a joke as it's very flimsy. It needs to have support from both sides of the tongue. I don't know of anybody else in this county that's got one of these and everybody is amazed at what it'll do. I've taken care of a couple of friends yard and they loved it too.

PULL BEHIND VACUUM
Posted by: MATTHEW B. from WILLOW SPRING, NC on 07/11/2017
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
I have owned my lawn vacuum since 2006. It is now 2017 and it has never let me down. B/S engine still runs great, plastic hose and container area still in great shape. The wheels are original and hold air like they should. I have 1 ac lot with many hardwood trees and a couple of pines. The metal wheel inside that creates the vacuum will still pull everything off the ground, even rocks if I am not careful. My neighbor has a cyclone and replaced the canvas once since 07. DR is the way to go.

Just used the leaf and lawn vacuum. I absolutely love it. When putting it together watch the video because it is great. When spreading the canvas we used a load bar to help spread it apart. Made it much easier. My yard looks like a golf course. I should have bought this a long time ago. When marking the mower deck part it was not that hard.

best purchase I've ever made
Posted by: dick hanselman from GROVERTOWN, IN on 08/24/2016
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
I called and purchased the pro-xl on Tuesday august 16 2015. Picked it up on Friday august 19 2015, put it togeather on Saturday. The only hard part putting it togeather was stretching the canvas. Called tech center and he said to stretch it and don't worry if it tears, he said it won't and if it does just call him back and they will ship another out the same. got it put on and off we went. After getting 11" of rain I had to wait until the pond it made in my yard to dry up. The grass was about 8" tall and I thought he we go , I guess this will be a good test. TO MY SURPRISE IT WORKED GREAT. What a great machine. I just wished I would have purchased it 3 years ago. We mow and pick up leaves on about 3 1/2 arce's wit about 20 oak tree's on it. I would strongly recommend this product to anyone. THANK YOU DR

Leaf and Lawn Vacuum - Great product but hose tears
Posted by: Paul H. from Warren, OH on 07/05/2016
Rating: Product Review Stars: 4.00 star rating
I purchased the Leaf and Lawn Vacuum last year and have had mostly positive experience with it. The only problem is the discharge hose tore at the connection of the mower discharge, after just two months, which I thought was due to sharp turns. So, I trimmed the discharge hose and reconnected to the mower deck connection. I did not make any sharp turns but the hose has torn again. I hope the company will correct the issue with the hose tearing at the discharge connection. The hose is expensive for it to be tearing so easily and quickly under normal use conditions.
Response from DR SupportThank your for taking the time to write a review and let us know that this has happened. Please give us a call at 1(800)687-6575 to talk with a technician regarding the hose. The hose should not be tearing under normal use on a one year old machine. We would love to help you correct this problem. Thank you.

DONE RAKING
Posted by: James G. from Dubuque, IA on 11/05/2015
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
I ordered the Pro-XL last November with a promise I would have it in time for fall cleanup. It was shipped late and came with the enclosure for the Premier instead of the Pro. I called customer service and they promised expedited shipment for receipt in two days. When it didn't arrive as promised, I called back to find out it had been back ordered and it wouldn't be available until January. Therefore, I had to wait until May to do my clean up. After finally being able to use it, I discovered they had also sent the frame for the Premier instead of the Pro. Customer service then shipped the correct frame along with an extended hitch plate and hose extension to correct problems caused by the tight turning radius of my all wheel steer tractor which knocked out both tail lights on the tractor. I would highly recommend the DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuum but make sure you get everything you need for your specific tractor. This is one powerful machine which makes yard cleanup a breeze. The customer service department and the service department at DR Power are simply the best. They resolved all my problems and it was clear to me they wanted me to be totally satisfied with my DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuum. They had all the fixes for everything except the deck adapter. The bottom of mine bowed upward so badly that it constricted the vacuum flow. I fixed mine by installing an aluminum plate on the bottom of the deck adapter and now it works just fine. I absolutely love my DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuum.

Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
Purchased my DR Pro-XL in December of 2014. Unpacked it in April of this year and put together. The online videos were the best as a visual aid to the manual for assembly. It was a little tough to put together, but was well worth the effort. I researched many different units and chose DR. I am very happy I did. When I firt tried out the unit on my lawn, it was picking up leaves, but a little amount was still left on the ground. Low and behold, I forgot to turn on my mower deck. When I engaged the deck, it was amazing at how well my unit vacuumed up the leaves. The service department was very helpful and stand behind their products. The machine is definetly DR (Done Right). I have been a returning customer to DR for the past 2 years and plan on continuing to do business with a company that has such a high reguard for service and customer staisfaction.

Very nice product
Posted by: Jon F. from Stillwater, MN on 04/16/2015
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
Very nice, powerful system. The improvements to dumping and the dual wheels are great improvements over the last iteration (that I also had). Engine runs great, and it has a LOT of suction. As with others, the assembly of the canvas was a challenge. I resorted to using a small bottle-jack and piece of 4x4 to stretch the canvas to get the frame in place. Suggestion: The bottom of the discharge chute, where it meets the blower assembly, could use a gasket as there were some air leaks. Some thick foam insulation tape worked fine to fix this. Also, does anyone else have a small amount of leakage where the chute enters the canvas box? I am thinking of adding a little extension to the chute, or perhaps some type of gasket where it enters the box.

DESIGN FLAW FOR ZERO TURNS
Posted by: dwaine f. from BENTON, AR on 12/15/2014
Rating: Product Review Stars: 2.00 star rating
Great vac for leaves!!! But the cart and hose for zero turns are not functional at all. I have called customer service they are wonderful people to talk to but was NOT ABLE TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM FOR THE ZERO TURN MOWER. The hose rubs my tires if i turn left and bunches up extremely when i turn to the right. They did send me out an extension hoes to help but that just makes the hoes bunch up even more when i turn right, and yes i have adjusted the straps as many ways as i can. I now need even more straps to put on the vacuum hose to keep it off the ground when i turn right. I know on jthe original vac they the cart to track exactly behind the zero turns but with the new design, so that you can use the cart as a small trailor they did not put the swivel wheels on the cart. Please let me know if you have any solutions to this problem. The Lady that I talked to said she talked with an engineer and he did not have a solution at this time. Naturally any alterations to the cart will void my warranty. So please help if you can.
Response from DR Support Thank you for your feedback on the DR® Leaf and Lawn Vacuum. We appreciate hearing back from our customers about all of their experiences. We certainly want to offer as many operational tips as we can so that the machine performs to your satisfaction. Here are some suggestions and would love to hear back from you if they proved helpful. You can contact us at 1 -800-376-9637. 1. The hose end of the deck adapter is canted out. You might try canting it out more by how you place it on the mower deck. You’d likely have to slot holes in the deck adapter since it’s probably already install. This would help with any over tightening issues for left turns 2. Hose Length: Turn all the way to the left (reasonable and what would be likely for your situation) and then once turned, determine how much hose is extra – then cut the hose to length eliminating that additional/extra length. This will help with right-hand turns 3. Typically people either mow in circles or in straight passes and take turns at the end of that pass. We suggest mowing in circles more to the left or taking turns to the left. Our own product testers do this when using a Z-turn mower. Again, we hope this is helpful and that you find the hose issues taken care of. We certainly appreciate the feedback and want to thank you for your business.

Excellent unit, reviews and instructions important!
Posted by: Beverly H. from Harvard, IL on 11/05/2014
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
First of all, read Carl's review. It's concise and very informative and very helpful. I ordered my unit on a Wednesday, got it the following Wednesday, and laid everything out on my garage floor on the cardboard that it was packed in. There's diagrams on one piece of cardboard with the parts shown. I read the instructions through completely, per Carl's good advice, and then laid out the parts and hardware in the order listed. The deck adapter was shipped separately for my John Deere 265, which is 22 years old, and came the following day. I did parts of the assembly myself but it's extremely helpful to have another pair of hands. The only problem I really had was with the instructions that came with the deck adapter. It covers a standard adapter and an angled adapter. The directions and pictures are for an angled adapter. I contacted MJ in tech support at DR and he e-mailed me much more detailed instructions and told me to leave the hinge plate from my discharge chute on my John Deere but remove the spring and pin and THIS was key. I do not have a jigsaw but had a friend who does and he helped me with the deck adapter. When it was all assembled, it worked perfectly and I'm very pleased with the unit. I'm 70 years old and normally sweep up between 110 and 125 carts of leaves with a 48" sweeper and I've had 2 back surgeries so this is extremely helpful to me.

Most Excellent
Posted by: Carl from LYNCHBURG, VA on 10/23/2014
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
On-line buying experience: The website is straight forward to use and a very similar to many of my other online transactions. It is clear that DR would like for you to get the right product. Once I submitted my transaction for processing I received an email and phone call looking for specific information about the tractor I was going to attach too. Nice touch on the customer service side. The person I spoke with was very polite and wanted to be sure I knew what I needed to be successful at setting up the vacuum. Shipping: Once the vacuum shipped it was at the depot in my area in 3 days, and we arranged for the next day to deliver it to my home. The driver was very helpful in getting it off his truck and made sure that I was happy with the contents before he asked for my signature and left me there with the pallet. Packaging: the vacuum was securely packaged on a large pallet surrounded by a cardboard container with some reinforcement. It arrived undamaged and completely clean. As I disassembled the contents of the pallet it was easy to remove all the cardboard and then unpack the contents. The vacuum was packed very organized and easy to work with. Everything that I ordered was in the container. Assembly: Guy’s read the instructions cover to cover before you get going. They are not difficult to follow, but a good understanding of the process will help you see how each step builds on the next. I took the massive sheet of cardboard from the shipping and laid it out on the ground and set everything out on it, and confirmed it to the parts list before getting going. Keep and eye on the orientation of the canvas hopper cover and be sure the right length bolts go in the correct end (I did not – and lost a little time to reworking that step). The canvas stretched around the inner frame is drum tight. This lends to its amazing appearance, but also is the toughest step in the assembly of the unit. I did not have an extra set of hands helping me – I was however able to use a couple bar clamps to get the last fasteners in place. Set Up: Set up is very straight forward. Add crank oil, fuel, and check connections – and the engine was ready to go. It started second pull – I let it idle for a little while to let it come up to temp. Then I went on to give it a little more throttle. Once at temp the protective oil flashed off the outside of the engine – this is normal and goes away after a couple uses. The hose was the right length right out of the box for my application so I did not need to cut it down. The boot needed to be fit to my mower deck. This was not difficult, but did take a little time. The configuration on my tractor did not allow for the mounting hardware to fit right. My requirement was to have the boot attached without using any tools and had to be easy on and off. I could have bought the boot from my tractor manufacturer (but the cost of that was nowhere near what I wanted to spend). Between the hardware kit and some stock I had around the shop, I was able to fabricate a connector that is solid and easy to take on and off – meeting my requirements. Function: I have only used the vacuum a couple times now. The first time out I noticed that it was only getting roughly half of some of the smaller leaves in my yard. The big stuff it didn’t have any issues with it. This was no fault of the vacuum. My mower deck did not have good blades on it. I replaced the blades with a much higher lift set of blades and it works flawlessly now. Things to pay attention to: Turning radius, over hanging limbs, and how full the hopper is getting. I’ve had no issues other than learning how to incorporate this into my mowing/leaf pick up habits. Form: This is one good looking unit. The cover is drum tight and made of very high quality material. All the fabricated parts are clean and well protected with the coatings they use. The design details show a very well thought out product. I appreciate how they solved all the different functions of the vacuum from dumping to the choices of colors. Tips: Take a leaf blower and blow out all your flower beds, paths, patios, onto the yard that’s to be mowed. This is a super simple way to get up much of the levees. As I mentioned before my turning radius is bigger, once I blow the leaves out – I take one pass around all the tight corners without the vacuum – then connect the vacuum for the bulk of the open yard. In my trees I have blown/raked into piles and then use the hose attachment to get them up. Overall impression: I am very satisfied with my purchase. It functions as good as it looks. The build and design is top notch, and has plenty of power even at less than full throttle for my needs. I try to keep my yard clean every week during the fall. That process would take most of a Saturday morning (4hours). I just did the same amount of work in 45 minutes last night after work. I cannot comment on durability as of yet – but by my estimation of the materials used this will serve me very well in the coming years.

WOW!!!!! It isn’t often you purchase a product and it surpasses your expectations. The DR Leaf Vacuum is as advertised. No clogging, easy to dump, impressive volume of mulched leaves held. A piece of equipment that will make your life easier. I have a cabin that is surrounded by acres of huge oak and maples trees and this machine was up to the task. It cut the time spent on yard work to a fraction of what it was in the past. Time I am now spending hunting and fishing. Thanks DR!

Allocate some time to assemble this system. The canvas looks fantastic once it’s together but I found it challenging to assemble. The previous model (friend) was convincing. I was skeptical purchasing ‘the latest’ model. I now have the Pro-XL and have run two loads through it. Amazing. The dump feature is perfect. Can wait to run many more loads through it.
Response from DR SupportThank you for your review on the DR Leaf and Lawn Vac. We have heard from other customers that the assembly of the canvas top does seem to be the most challenging. All feedback is important to us and we’ll certainly pass this information on to our product management team. We are happy that you’re enjoying the cart / dump feature! It's one of our favorites too!

Pro XL Vacuum
Posted by: Samuel M. from ADRIAN, MI on 09/30/2014
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
Very well built heavy duty machine. Lots of vacuum power. It pretty much sucks everything right out of my 54" mower deck. The trailer unit opens, dumps, and closes very easy. A very nice design. By far the best machine for the money. Cheaper machines do not have the same power and anything that does compare is twice as much. I hope in the future they offer a tail gate option for the trailer for when it is used as just a trailer. Currently the trailer would be open in the back when used by its self. I would also like to see a hitch attachment for use when the engine assembly is detached and it is being used as a trailer only. Right now a long pin is supplied to go through the square tube which does not allow for very good pivoting of the trailer up and down when being pulled.
Response from DR SupportThank you for your review on the DR Leaf and Lawn Vac. We appreciate knowing how the machine is performing for you and that the design lends itself to helping you with other projects. Great suggestions on the tail gate option and hitch attachment for the Lawn Vac. We are going to pass these along to our product management team. If you have any other comments or suggestions we would love to hear from you. Please feel free to email them to us at info@drpower.com. Everyone at DR® Power appreciates your business.

Q.Will the Pro XL Leaf and Lawn Vacuum fit my mower?
A.The Pro XL Leaf and Lawn Vacuum will work with most conventional-style riding lawn tractors and Z-Steers with 14 HP or more. To help determine whether the DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuum is compatible with your mower, please review the list of questions below. This information will also help you decide which model is appropriate for your riding mower. 1. Do you currently have a bagging or collection system for your lawn mower? If you do, is the diameter of the boot’s discharge opening between 6" and 8"? The blower inlet hose on the DR measures 8" in diameter, but we also have adapters for boots with diameters less than 8". If you do not, one of our Universal-Fit Mower Deck Boot, can be modified to fit lawn decks that have a discharge opening up to 6" high by 19" wide. If our Universal-Fit Mower Deck Boot will not fit with your mower’s lawn deck, you may be able to locate a boot by contacting the manufacturer or local dealer of your mower. 2. Do you have a pin hitch on the back of your tractor between 8" and 15" from the ground? If not a.)Is there a secure place on the back of your tractor to mount a hitch plate? b.)What is the distance between the rear wheels on your mower? 4. What is the distance from the back opening of the discharge on the lawn mower to the back of the furthest point of the back of the tractor? If the distance is 40" or less, our standard blower inlet hose will be sufficient. However, if this distance is between 41" and 7', then our optional Hose Extension Kit is required. If the distance is greater than 7', the mower is too large to be used with the DR. If you have more questions, please contact our Sales Team at Toll Free 1-888-550-0062 and a Sales Rep will be happy to help you. Sales summer hours are Monday thru Friday, 8 am to 8 pm, Saturday, 8:30 am to 5 pm, and Sunday, 9 am to 5:30 pm, Eastern Time.

Q.Prior models had a built in chipper. Do the new models also have a built in chipper? If not, are there models still available that have a built in chipper?
A.The built-in chipper was available on the Pro and Pro-XL models on the older Tow-Behind Leaf and Lawn Vacuum. With the redesign on the vacuum, the built-in chipper is not included, a decision based on a lot of customer feedback over the years.

To check on any reconditioned models on the older generation Vacuum, we generally recommend calling directly to speak with a Sales Representative at Toll Free 1-888-550-0062.

Q.What engine make, model, and horsepower?
A.Thank you for contacting us.

The Tow Behind DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuums have the Rato engine. They are a commercial grade engine. Many engine manufacturers no longer rate their smaller engines by horsepower. They rate them by foot-pounds of torque. Rating by foot-pounds of torque is a trend that is spreading throughout the industry because it is a more accurate measure of power. All of our machines are fitted with engines that are more than powerful enough to do the work they were designed to accomplish.

Q.How does it pick up the leaves and grass? Can I pull this behind a 4 wheeler? My lawnmower mulches and spreads out the grass and leaves. Will this lawn vacuum pick up the spread out grass and leaves behind a four wheeler or do I need to attach to my lawn mower?
A.Our Leaf and Lawn Vac’s suck up material either through your mower’s deck or through the optional Vac Hose. If you tow behind an ATV you’ll lose the benefit of your mower’s ability to pick up material in a wide swath.

Q.What is the CFM of this lawn vacuum. The horse power or the CC of the engine only tells me the amount of work it will do and not how much it will suck up. I would like to know the amount of CFM it will put out at full rpm. Thanks.
A.The CFM rating on the Pro and Pro-XL Tow-Behind Leaf and Lawn Vacuums is 2792 CFM. With the new redesign of our Tow-Behind Vacuums, it includes a larger diameter inlet vacuum hose. The new 8-inch diameter hose means less clogging and improved suction, 72 MPH for the Pro and Pro-XL models and 66 MPH for the Premier model.

Q.Will it vacuum leaves from parking lots. We have 50 live oaks and tons of leaves both in parking lots and on lawn surface?
A.Whatever material your mower deck can lift, the DR Tow-Behind Leaf and Lawn Vacuum will suck the debris through the impeller and mulch it. It can be used on hard surfaces or turf. You will want to use a regular cutting blade on your lawn deck as opposed to a mulching blade which could interfere with the suction power of the lawn vacuum. The mower blade provides a good portion of the reduction for our Tow-Behind Leaf and Lawn Vacuum. We also offer an optional vacuum hose that attaches quickly and easily to the vacuum. The 14-foot hose picks up any type of organic debris and is great for any hard to reach areas.

Q.What size (diameter )hose does this use from mower discharge chute to shredder? Have you tried using this to pick up hedge balls (osage orange)?
A.The hosing on our new models is 8" in diameter. This size is for maximum power. Our Leaf and Lawn Vacuums are capable of suctioning and mulching anything that your mower deck is capable of lifting. If your mower runs them over with out shooting them out, then our vacuum won't be able to clear them up. However, if your mower does move them, then our vacuum wouldn't have an issue. Our steel impeller can easily pulverize material like the hedge balls.

Q.Can this unit be attached to a lawn tractor with a 3 point hitch?
A.It can be physically done with the use of an adapter like a Flexpoint Hitch, http://bit.ly/I6KVoK. However, the length of hose will need to be longer and you may lose some suction depending on length? Also, our deck boot accommodates an opening up to 6" high x 19" wide. So if your deck discharge opening is larger than this you will need to find another deck boot option.

Q.What is the big difference in the Pro and the Pro-XL?
A.The Pro is our mid-level unit. We recommend the Pro for larger lawns, 1.5-3 acres, and mid-sized lawn mowers, 48"-54" cutting decks. The Pro-XL is our top-level unit. It offers the maximum power for larger lawns, 3-5+ acres, and larger lawn mowers, 54" and up cutting decks. With the larger engine on the Pro-XL, you will have more power which will allow you to process more material and the speed in which it can do it.

A.Our Tow-Behind Leaf and Lawn Vacuums can be towed behind an ATV, golf cart or pick-up truck, but you would need to use the hand-held vacuum hose to vacuum the debris into the container. We do offer a Tow-Behind Lawn Sweeper that can be towed behind your lawn tractor. It holds up to 26 cubic feet, great for cleaning up leaves, twigs, and grass clippings from your lawn or driveway.

I would recommend calling our call center to see what is currently available, as this inventory does change quickly. It will not come with a deck adapter, as not everyone needs one. If you already have a bagging system on your lawn tractor, it may be able to hook up directly. We sell two adapters, a Standard and an Angled.

Q.Will this model pick up pine cones and acorns?
A.The Pro-XL Leaf and Lawn Vacuum will have no problem picking up the acorns and pine cones as longs as they are not embedded in the ground. As a general rule, anything that your lawn mower blade will move, can be picked up with the Leaf and Lawn Vacuum. The combination of your blades spinning and the 72 mph suction created by the vacuum are what allow this to happen. Thank you for your question.

Q.Will this unit pick up significant leaves and debris from an asphalt driveway ?
A.Thank you for your interest in the DR Tow Behind Leaf and Lawn Vacuum.

The Leaf and Lawn Vacuum will take in what the mowing deck sends it. The mowing blades need to be engaged for the Vacuum to work while it is attached to the deck.

Please contact us if you have further questions.

Q.Do you have a mower deck boot that fits the Dixon Garden Tractor?
A.Thank you for contacting us.

The Universal Deck Boot will fit deck openings up to 6" x 19". It comes in 2 types, 1 for a flat, straight deck opening and 1 for a curved deck opening. The deck boot needs to be cut to fit your mowing deck. It takes 1 - 2 hours. If you would like a custom fit deck boot, you will need to contact your Dixon Dealer.

Please contact us if you have further questions. PL

Q.What is "reconditioned" on these. Worst case. What model year are these. How much for the mower deck chute? Thanks
A.Our factory reconditioned machines are the best way to get your hands on a like-new DR at a savings. We offer our customers a Hands-On Trial period within which they can return their machine. A certain number of machines are returned to us each year. We use these returned machines as a way to offer you even more savings. All reconditioned machines are thoroughly inspected by a service technician, tested for optimal functionality, cleaned, and repackaged. We then offer them to you at a savings. Each reconditioned machine comes with the same 2-Year Limited Warranty and Hands-On Trial as new DR machines. Here is a link for deck adapters with the current price and promotions: http://www.drpower.com/power-equipment/leaf-lawn-vacuums/accessories/prompt-for-ll2-boot.axd
