Premier-200 Model

The PREMIER-200 holds up to 200 gallons of leaves and/or grass clippings. Its aggressive shredding action lets you work for long stretches without emptying the reservoir.

The powerful 11.1 ft. lbs. gross torque 223cc engine, 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 card 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 Premier model has a 500 pound capacity.

Keystart on the tow-behind DR leaf vacuum

Electric Start Available

The PREMIER-200 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 PREMIER-200 holds up to 27 cubic feet (200 gallons). 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).

I already reviewed first use was easy to put together. I liked all but toungue weight is heavy. get the jack option. STARTS EASY - So I've mowed my lawn 5 times. Today I noticed. not sure when it happened a split in the main hose about 18 up from the adapter. The hose kinks a little at this spot and when I moved it I noticed it's split at the seam the black wire about 6 inches wide. It still worked, but 1. I'm concerned about how well it lasts. And 2. I hate to duct tape my brand new vac. neighbors will point and laugh. Hoping I installed it right. Or is this a warranty issue

I love this Leaf and lawn vac. Was not as had to assemble as I thought. The tongue weight is a lot heavier than I anticipated. For sure would have bought the front jack had I known how heavy it is for me. Had heavy winds two days after assembly and it worked great on the small branches with leaves that fell. Was surprised at how much grass it picked up as it had been four days after mowing. I would highly recommend this leaf vacuum. Do wonder how many starts I’ll get from the small battery. John R

I use the Lawn Vac in a hilly and rocky area. There are several tree stumps and roots that are low enough to not be seen, but high enough to stop the lawn tractor. The leaves were too deep for me to use the device as designed. So, for first time use, I blew the leaves in big piles, then sucked them through the hose. It worked great. Last year it tpok over two weeks to complete what it took a day and a half to do. After the initial pickup, I installed the hose on the mower attachment. I have two acres. I had it cleaned in less than 3 hours, even working around the stumps. I am very pleased with my Leaf and Lawn Vacuum.

I used this to clean up the area around my pool which collects leaves every winter. The motor starts with one pull every time. The only complaint after one use is that it spits out a dust storm of fine debris out the back. If you have it parked in one spot while you use the hose, make sure the back of the unit points away from anything you don't want covered in leaf dust! The shipping pallet had some parts that were dislodged but no affect to the unit though. I recommend DR secure the shipping cover to the box. The pallet is big over 4' wide and 6-7' long.

This unit was easily the most thoroughly designed kit I have ever assembled. I had looked at the assembly videos on the website before the purchase therefore when I read the directions during the assembly it all made sense. Others expressed difficulty in stretching the frame into bag and I would have been baffled by the written directions for that part if I hadn't seen the video. The parts all seem high quality, the welds look good, the bolt bags were organized and labeled very well. I was very pleased with the way the leaves were ground up and emptying of the hopper was easy. I ordered with electric start and it works well. All in all the whole experience was great. I would not hesitate recommending this Vacuum.

Premier leaf vac
Posted by: Neil H. from Clinton, PA on 12/10/2017
Rating: Product Review Stars: 3.00 star rating
This machine vacuums well EXCEPT for one serious issue, read on. This issues is extremely frustrating. I have a tractor(Kubota Gr-2110) that has a tight turning radious but is NOT a zero turn. No matter how careful I am, the vacuum hose constantly pulls off of the deck adapter. You can tighten the clamp all you want, as tight as you want, and it WILL still happen. The hose is just too short. DR was aware of the type of tractor I had when this machine was ordered. This issue has been raised before on the reviews but apparently not addressed by DR. They should supply longer hoses when ordering for tractors that have a sharp turning radius. If you have a tractor that has other than the normal turning radious, you WILL need to carry a screw driver and reattach the hose when it pulls off. The problem gets worse over time. It does vacuum well, but for this kind of money, you shouldn't have this problem. DR, are you listening? Please address this issue as another expensive hose should not have to be purchased to try to compensate for this very real problem.

A bit over 1 acre of land w/maple trees. Purchased the Premier model to save us from (literally) weeks of raking last year. Extremely pleased. Impressed by the engineering, solid construction and ease of use. I do wish I had gotten the electric start, but the unit starts dependably. I have used the cart all season to haul dirt+stones and would advise anyone thinking of buying the new unit with the flat bed to put thought into the decision. That dump cart is sturdy and super useful. My next purchase will be the kit so I can blow leaves directly from piles (dumped by vac) directly into my trailer to take to the landfill. I recommend the dr lawn vac to everyone I know.

The Premier lawn and leaf vacuum is better than described . It was very easy to assemble, as I watched the video on U-Tube. This machine has great vacuum and picks up very well. I got electric start and the hitch jack. I'm 70 years old and makes it much easier to handle. I have used it on leaves that have been piled since last fall, some are dry but most were mated down and a little wet. No matter the Premier chopped them up so fine it was hard to believe. I have a John Deer D110 with a bagger , so I attached the 8" tube to my lower discharge tube on the deck[requiring no adapter]. Now I can't wait for the leaves to fall!!??? Great product!!!

Rating: Product Review Stars: 4.00 star rating
The Premier was an excellent choice for handling all the leaves that we have on our property. The installation was easy to follow with the installation manual and the video that was on the internet together. Assembling the collector was the hardest part because the fabric is real tight on the frame. A mistake I made was ordering the wrong deck adaptor. They have a straight and angle adaptor. I suggest you call the technical support to make sure which one you need for your particular tractor. The operation of the DR was awesome. It did ever thing it is advertised to do and more. The motor and impeller on this unit is very powerful and durable. I accidentally sucked up a heavy glass ash tray and thought for sure I damaged the impeller; but no damage was done and it sucked it all the way through to the collector. The only reason I gave it a four is because I had some delivery problems with the equipment. the optional vacuum hose I ordered didn't come with the main lawn vacuum system and they didn't send the brackets with the deck adaptor. They did straighten out both problems but it took awhile to get system together to use.

Well built. Easy to dump. Works every bit as well as advertised. Turned hundreds of hours of raking leaves into a dozen hours of vacuuming leaves. I have a lot just under 1 acre with 30-40 large trees. The leaves are more than plentiful in the fall. This unit w/ the electric start and vacuum hose was a perfect fit for clearing leaves in the yard, around the house, and out of the landscaping. Required dumping dozens of full loads, but ease of dumping made the work a breeze. Customer Service from Dr. was terrific. Helped me get an easy return on the Universal Deck Adapter. I am not very "handy" and decided to buy a custom fit deck adapter instead of attempt to fit the universal deck adapter to my mower after receiving it. Thanks DR for a great product and great customer service.

I have read most of the reviews posted recently, I ordered the unit and an angled adapter on of all days Nov.13 2015 (Friday the 13th.) It came by way of tractor trailer on Thurs. Nov.19th to my driveway. I unloaded the unit, and by evening had the deck adapter completed, about 90 min. of work, spent a lot of that time getting the proper tools gathered. The next day I was only able to spend 4 hours finishing unpacking and sorting parts, and starting assembly. It snowed in our area on Fri. the 20th, so I had to stop work and do what needed to be done. Sunday I was able to complete the assembly. I started the engine, just to check everything. I waited a few hours to let the leaves dry-out a bit and then started the clean-up WOW!! I was impressed on the quality of the job.Really was impressed. So now if all goes like the first few hours I will be a faithful follower, just like a lot of others.

Bought this unit a month ago. It does a super job of picking up and mulching leaves, and is a real work-saver. We have large maple trees that shed huge quantities, and the unit turns them into quarter-sized pieces that are great for compost on the first pass. On oak leaves, which are tougher, the pieces are much larger. But we have a big problem with the hose. It tore on maybe the second use for an unexplained reason (we don't think we hit anything). We've been duct-taping, but it keeps tearing and will soon be completely separated. We will have to replace it. I think they could have made it out of a tougher plastic.

I was a bit concerned when I purchased this unit as it is made from plastic and canvas. I needn't have worried though as the trailer is very heavy duty with ball bearing wheels and very heavy plastic. The enclosure is very heavy canvas on the outside and rubberized on the inside. I handled heavy oak leaves in my yard of approximately 3/4 acre in an hour and a half. It went together without difficulty and when I called support about a minor problem they were super helpful and friendly. Please don't hesitate to purchase this unit if you are at all concerned.

Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
Comes in a very large container so you'll need a pickup truck to get it from the delivered location. Takes two to off load it. Once you get it out of the package it is a assembly effort. You'll eventually get it all together and then when you connect it to your lawn mower it is fairly easy to use. Does a very good job vacuuming up the leaves and lawn clippings. It is fairly easy to empty once you learn how.

We did a lot of research to find the right product for our yard. We have about an acre that is heavily wooded, 6" deep in leaves. Capacity and power were the two things we were concerned with. This machine puts a ton of leaves in the hamper before I need to dump it. I was really amazed at how small everything got chopped up, perfect for mulching the garden. You have to have two people to put it together and you MUST follow the directions step by step. They say it takes three hours to assemble and they are correct. I have a shop full of tools, so I had everything I needed. The only issue I had was one of the packets of nuts and bolts was missing two nuts. So I had to run out and buy a couple, no big deal really, but... I've run it for two days now and the engine starts up on the first pull every time, pretty impressive. You'll need to ware ear protection as the mower and the unit are really load when they are both running. The first time I tried it, the leaves were pretty wet, but it seemed to suck most of them right off the ground. The lower your mower deck the more suction you get. Great product, really glad I bought it.

I purchased the DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuum about a 1 1/2 years ago and it was the best investment that I've made. It took me a full day to put the unit together. I wish that more of this was already put together. It took me another day to get the boot cut out correctly to fit my John Deer riding mower. I'm glad I took the time because I have a nice tight fit and this makes all of the difference to give maximum suction. I had to add an S-shaped piece of metal on the top to give the boot a strong connection and bolted the S-shaped metal to another piece of metal on the underside of the deck. This gave it a very strong connection to the deck and holds the boot securely in place. The motor starts basically with 1 or 2 pulls, every time. The suction is so great it is better than any vacuum I've used. When I am done with my lawn it looks like a manicured golf course. I would recommend this system for any lawn with a lot of leaves to pick up. What a great system. Steve from Coloma MI

I finally had the opportunity to use my new leaf vac. Surpassed my expectations by a mile. If you're reading reviews then you're obviously considering buying a leaf vac.... Go no further. This product is better than advertised.

I took the deck adapter to a lawn mower service and had them fit it on my deck. The first place I took it could not figure it out but the second place did a great job. I'm glad I did not try on my own. I had no trouble putting everything else together by myself. After assembled and running I had same problem as others where the chute would disconnect from the bagger and debris would blow everywhere. Spoke with tech support and added two washers to one side of engine mount and now works great. I do feel this is a flaw in the original construction and not a shipping issue. Everything seems to be made very well and should last a long time.

I did quite a bit of research before buying this, and I am glad I did. I bought the basic 9.59 Premier model, and so far, it has had plenty of power for anything I want to do. Putting it together took a couple of hours, but it was not overly difficult. The dump feature is one of the best parts, as when I am out working with it, I usually don't want to take the time to go dump it, but of course I do. It is so quick and easy, I can't imagine the buckling and unbuckling of straps and flaps on some of the other brands. I just shut it off, back it up to the pile, and dump - its that easy. I used the bagger adaptor that I had on my tractor already, and it fit this unit fine, works great. I did not have to cut the hose, the length was perfect. So far I am very pleased with this machine, and I look forward to many good years. I would recommend this to anyone.

DR Vacuum

Rating: Product Review Stars: 4.00 star rating
My husband is still trying to put it together. It's the discharge part that's not easy to connect. Ours is curved but it wouldn't have mattered if it was straight because it is not an easy task. It would have been nice if it had already been cut to fit the mower. I think we will like it when we finally get it together. My husband will try to finish it tomorrow, his 2nd day to work on it. My brother in law has the bigger vacuum and really likes it. I rated it a 4 because of having to cut and fit the discharge unit to the mower. Is not easy. I am sure it will work great on our lawn when my husband gets the task completed.

Works as advertised. It does take a while to assemble, but not bad. The website video helped. The DR universal boot did not adapt well to my deck, and by the time I figured it out, it was too late to return. I'm getting a factory one from Husky. Even without a good fitting boot, the vac works great.

Got this vac a few days ago and expected an easy put together. It takes 2 so if you see the video of the lady putting it away, the only thing I can say is that, that lady must have OX blood in her veins. Ok that is behind us and the unit works well and that is all that matters. I would recommend this vac to all, but make sure you have 4 hands to help setting it up. The down side is if you have a large yard, you will have to refill the tank on the vac about half way through the job. If you have a lot of leafs, get ready to empty the unit 4 to 5 times before the job is done. Ok yes there is an up side, it does a great job of getting all the leafs out of your yard. All in all a great unit and the price is right.

I bought this machine in September of 2014, have used it three times, it works very good, the vacuum is excellent, but not without problems 1. the discharge hose has ripped 2. the canvas on the back, right above the handle is coming apart at the seam. and the hinge pin is too short, it is working, but it is not long enough. It even picks up sweet gum balls. assembly was a little tuff, had to ask for help.

Works great. I did want the next unit up the Pro and was told it was 10 weeks out because of motors on order. I was disappointed when the unit came and was putting it together and notice that the front wheel did not come with it. I was lead to believe that I had to take the Premier instead of the Pro that the wheel would come with the Premier. I'm almost 70 and its very hard for me to lift the unit.

Great machine, with huge improvements over last model
Posted by: WILLIAM from MADISON, CT on 11/10/2014
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
So far this leaf vacuum is performing fantastically. It was easy to setup, and the effort taken in breaking it down is quite easy considering it's sturdiness. It really does take only about 5 minutes. The capability of braking it down for storage, alone, is an amazing improvement over the previous versions. Some people who may have had to keep it outside previously, can now fit it into their shed or garage. I told a rep from tech support at DR that last years model should have included a pin for the deck adapter with two holes on each side for hitch pin clips, thereby making it easier to switch back to a mower discharge chute when not using the vacuum. They have included that pin with this model. One of the big problems with previous models was clogging, due to the size of the hose, and the various angles the leaves had to pass through. They have solved that problem. It has not clogged yet, or even come close. The canvas container is far more durable than the plastic one. Acorns do not puncture it because of the give that it has inherently. The assisted lift makes dumping much easier. The clamshell design overall is just great. They have eliminated the hassle of dumping. To top it off, it doubles as a dumping utility cart, and it's lighter than last years model, making it easier to go up hills when full of leaves. There are only two things I think I would change with this model: 1. Use a standard carabiner instead of the locking one for the safety cable. 2. The oil drain spout requires you to drain the oil over the frame of the machine. Try to relocate it. These two issues are very minor. I'll replace the carabiner myself, and it would be hard to relocate the oil drain spout without sacrificing the design of the machine. Overall, as is probably apparent from my review, I'm very happy.

The unit assembles fairly easy but is time consuming and some of the pictures in the directions could be a little more descriptive. I am impressed with how well it works and how much it holds my old unit was another mfg push type that I would have to empty 5 or 6 times to finish just my yard and this held it all. would recommend this to anyone wanting one and would buy it again if needed.

Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
I have been using the Pro XL for about 4 weeks and the machine exceeds all my expectations because it is well made, and consequently, it works perfectly. When I ordered the leaf vacuum, I was particularly interested in the leaf mulching blade because we have over 60 large trees in our yard plus we are surrounded by woods so we have lots and lots of leaves so a machine which reduces the volume was especially attractive to me. In short, the blade performs exactly has described in the DR literature and it is amazing at how many passes I may make in the yard before the cart is totally full. Probably the other specific feature I appreciate is the powerful, electric start engine because it starts without any hesitation and produces an exceptional amount of suction so that clogged hoses area a thing of the past which is a wonderful change from my earlier John Deere model.

I received the equipment last week, found the assembly process to be fairly simple but time consuming. The equipment works very well and I expect it will more than pay for itself before the snow flies as it will eliminate the thousands that it costs to have the landscaper remove the leaves for me. It is extremely sturdy and I expect based on that alone it will last a long time. I would buy it again in a minute.

Had the opportunity to try one of the first of these leaf vacs and it is great. The videos are accurate: the DR leaf vac is maneuverable, powerful and easy to use. Dumps very well and capacity is surprising. I figure it will save us 3-4 days of raking per year and one of our neighbors has already asked to borrow it this fall. It is great for leaves but also super for tall grass that we only mow every 3-4 weeks. And the shredded material makes great mulch. You won't regret it.

Product Q&A
Ask a Question for This Product
Sort By:
Q.1) Does this unit require an adapter between the deck and the discharge hose? If so, is it included in the unit price? 2) Is there a removable extension hose between the mower and the trailer that supports the vac and motor?Thanks.
A.A Deck Boot (adapter) is necessary in order to connect the lawn deck discharge with the inlet hose of the Leaf and Lawn Vacuum.

If your discharge opening on your lawn tractor is less than 6" high and 19" wide, our standard deck boot will make the connection between your tractor and our hose system. It does require some modifications, as cutting and drilling is involved. We also offer an angled deck adapter.

These deck boot adapters are not included in the price of the Leaf and Lawn Vacuum. If our adapters will not fit with your mower's lawn deck, you may be able to locate a custom fit boot by contacting the manufacturer or local dealer of your mower.

Our Tow-Behind Leaf and Lawn Vacuums also come with a removable 8" ID blower inlet hose that attaches between the deck adapter and the blower housing inlet which is 72" in length. If you need a longer length of hose, we do offer an optional Extra Hose Kit that extends the blower inlet hose by 3 feet for larger lawn tractors.

Thanks for your interest and questions on the Premier Tow-Behind Leaf and Lawn Vacuum. ph

Q.Aside from grass clippings and leaves, does the Premier model pickup and chop-up twigs and small branches? If so, can you give me an idea of how long and what diameter twigs and branches it will handle? Thanks.
A.The Premier model can mulch branches and twigs that your mower deck is capable of lifting. The twigs would need to be small enough to fit thru the 8" hose between the mower and the vacuum.

Q.What about unwanted moisture collection? Not all leaves and grasses are dry. Can this gadget wick moisture or can it be opened for cleaning and "drying" if needed?
A.The Leaf & Lawn Vac has ample vacuum to handle wet leaves and the container can easily be opened to dry out if needed. The hoses can easily be disconnected and left to dry as well, although both the container and hoses are made of high quality PVC material which is impervious to mold or rot. I hope that this answers your questions. If you'd like to order the leaf vacuum, please call us at 800-376-9637 and speak with a Sales Rep to determine compatibility with your mower.

Q.When I am picking up the leaves with the hand held hose will I also be picking up the rocks?
A.The Leaf Vacuum will pick up small rocks if you are not careful. When using the hand held hose you can hold the nozzle a little higher and just pick up the leaves without getting rocks. Also, when using the lawn deck you would want to adjust the height of the deck a little higher so that you avoid the rocks as well. The shredding teeth on the impeller are very durable.

Q.I have a sixty-inch deck on my lawn tractor. Will the Premier be compatible with it?
A.One of the most important things to check for compatibility would be the dimensions of the discharge opening on your mower deck to ensure it is compatible with our universal deck boot. The deck boot requires a right hand side discharge, a maximum opening height of 6" or less, and a maximum opening width of 19" or less. If your lawn deck opening does not fall within these dimensions, you can check with your mower manufacturer as often they may a deck boot that will work. With the size of your lawn deck, you may need to consider the larger model to ensure you have proper suction for the amount of discharge your mower creates depending on your property. The best recommendation I have for you would be to call our sales department so we can discuss with you your mower, operating conditions, etc. so we can best get an understanding of what will work the best for you. Our sales department can be reached toll free at 1-(888) 550-0062 Monday - Friday from 8:00am - 8:00pm Eastern, Saturday from 8:30am - 5:00pm, and Sunday from 9:30am - 5:30pm.

Q.The description for the Leaf and Lawn Vacuum Premier model says it's designed for smaller properties. The area I need to maintain is about 1/2 acre with lots of thick grass that gets out of control in a hurry, so when I mow, it's typically a little taller than the average lawn. I also have 3 large butternut trees that drop a ton of leaves and a heavy crop of nuts in the fall. Would the Premier be a good choice for me, or should I consider stepping up to the Pro model? Thanks in advance.
A.Thank you for contacting us.

The Premier model will handle your 1/2 acre property very well. The size of the mowing deck will also determine which Leaf and Lawn Vacuum will work best for you. We recommend up to a 52" wide mowing deck for the Premier model. If your deck is larger than that, I would recommend stepping up to the Pro or Pro XL model, depending on the size of the deck.

Please contact us if you have further questions. PL

Q.Who really makes the engine? Is it made in usa?
A.The DR engine featured on our Leaf and Lawn Vacuum is manufactured for us by Rato. The engine is manufactured in China. The machine itself is assembled at our factory in Vermont. The engines feature a 2 year warranty standard, with an option to extend to a full 5 years. This is a great way to protect your investment.

We have had great success with the DR engine and have been using it for years on some of our other equipment.

Thank you for your inquiry.

Q.Can this unit discharge collected material to another collection conveyance like a trailer should you need to haul your clippings to the local land-fill?
A.Our Tow-behind models feature an optional mulch discharge hose. This hose works in unison with our optional vacuum hose. Together they can clean out the back of the container and discharge the material into a desired location with the 17' discharge hose. Below are links to these hoses. This is a great way to get the mulched vegetation into a specific location. Thank you for your interest.

Q.Break down for storage, Does the tow-behind leaf vacuum break down or fold for storage?
A.Yes, it is actually very simple to disassemble the collector, hoses, and outlet duct for storage purposes. The collector can be removed by sliding out the hinge pin. For long term storage the collector collapses in just a few mintues and without tools. The hoses can all be removed by unscrewing the mounting hose clamp on each. Once you are familiar with the assembly of this machine, the average person can disassemble it for storage in a matter of about 15 - 30 minutes.

Q.Any issue with towing behind an ATV? I would expect to use the hose attachment for over the wall and in gardens where fall/spring cleanup is needed.
A.Yes, you can tow the Leaf Vacuum with an ATV. We have a number of customers that do not attach the hose to a lawn deck, but rather tow from spot to spot and use the vacuum hose to manually pickup leaves. That will work just fine! Thank you.

Q.Will this unit fit my zero turn mower?
A.Our Tow-Behind Leaf and Lawn Vacuum will work with most conventional-style riding lawn tractors and Z-steer mowers that have a front, mid or belly-mounted lawn deck. The Premier models can be attached to tractors with a 12 HP minimum for use on level terrain. 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. What is the Cutting Width of your mower? 2. Do you currently have a bagging or collection system for your lawn mower? If so, is the diameter of the boot’s discharge opening between 8"? The blower inlet hose on the DR measures 8" in diameter, but we also have adapters for boots with diameters of up to 8". If you do not, 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. 3. Do you have a pin hitch on the back of your tractor between 8" and 15" from the ground? If not, is there a secure place on the back of your tractor to mount a hitch plate? If you are in need of a Hitch Plate or opted for the Dual Point Hitch Kit, 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 inches or less, our standard blower inlet hose will be sufficient. However, if this distance is between 41 inches and 7 feet, then our optional Hose Extension Kit is required. If the distance is greater than 7 feet, the mower is too large to be used with the DR. If you have more questions or would like to place a phone order, please feel free to give our Sales Team a call at Toll Free 1-888-550-0062, Monday thru Friday, 8 am to 7 pm, Saturday, 8:30 am to 5 pm, and Sunday, 9 am to 5:30 pm, Eastern Time. Thanks for your interest in the DR Tow-Behind Leaf and Lawn Vacuum.

Q.Are the 8" hoses on the Lawn-Vacuum damaged by exposure to sunlight, water or biological activity from the leaves as they decay? What are the hoses made of?
A.The 8" hoses on the Leaf & Lawn Vac are made from a very flexible, UV resistant PVC plastic that will repel water. By the term "biological activity" I must assume your concern is that decaying leaves might harm the PVC. We did not experience any problems with that process in Product Testing, nor have I heard of it from any customers in the 8 years we've been selling the product. I hope that this answers your questions. If you'd like to order the Leaf & Lawn Vac, please call us at 800-376-9637 for compatibility with your mower.

A.Dear Customer, If your property is relatively flat, our Premier Leaf and Lawn Vacuum will work with a 12 HP mower. You may want to double check your mower's A&O Manual on the towing weight limitation of your mower. The weight capacity of the Premier model is 500 lbs.

Q.Will this product pick-up leaves over a sandy area instead of grass? We live on a lake and have a wooded lot with no grass. After eliminating the ferns our ground is all sand with some areas around the house having mulch. We could use the vacuum attachment over the mulch but I am concerned about the very large area that is all sand. Will this unit be effective in this type of application?
A.Yes, although you will need to carefully adjust the mower deck. If too close to the ground, it will pick up an inordinate amount of sand, and if too high, it will not pick up the leaves effectively.

Q.How much width do each of the models add to the tractor? e.g., A 60" deck + hose & adapter width = total width of machines. Need to know as we have vineyard & orchard rows to clean up.
A.Thank you for contacting us and your interest in the DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuums.

The overall width of the Premier model is 34.7" and the Pro and the Pro XL models have an overall width of 47.62". The Universal Deck Boot is the only item that will add width to your tractor as you have a 60" wide deck. The Universal Deck Boot is 13" wide, however that may lessen as you will be cutting the deck boot to fit your deck.

Q.Does the tow-behind leaf and lawn vacuum come with everything needed to hook up and go?
A.Our Tow-Behind Leaf and Lawn Vacuums come with the standard size blower inlet hose that attaches between the deck adapter and the blower housing inlet. The Deck Adapter, Vacuum Hose, Mulch Discharge Hose and the Extra Hose Kit are all optional attachments.

Our Deck Adapter fits discharge openings that are no more than 6" high and 19" wide, so some modifications are required such as cutting and drilling. Also, our Deck Adapter can only be fitted for right side discharge mowers. If our Deck Adapter will not fit with your mower's lawn deck, you may be able to locate a Deck Adapter by contacting the manufacturer or local dealer of your mower.

Thanks for your interest and question. ph

Q.Will this vacuum work on alpaca feces? The actual question would be does the vacuum action have enough power to pull small round pellets that would lie below the lawn mower blades.
A.Our Tow-Behind Leaf and Lawn Vacuum has tremendous suction! Whatever material your mower deck can lift, the Leaf and Lawn Vacuum will suck the debris through the impeller. When you mow with the DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuum attached, you get approximately 10 times the lifting power of your mower alone. The DR Leaf and Lawn Vacuum is designed to vacuum yard waste such as leaves, grass, small twigs, pine cones and will work for any debris that’s safe for your mower blades. Since we have no specific performance data on using the Tow-Behind Leaf and Lawn Vacuum for vacuuming animal waste, we cannot guarantee our Leaf and Lawn Vacuum will perform like a Paddock Vacuum, which is designed for the collection of manure and debris from paddocks, yards and stables.If you have more questions, please feel free to contact us at Toll Free 1-888-550-0062 and a Sales Representative will be happy to help you.

A.If the distance from the back opening of the discharge on the mower to the back of the furthest point on the back of the tractor is 40” or less you will not need to order any extra hose. If, however, that distance is between 40 inches and 7 feet you will need to order the Extra Hose Kit, #35162. I recommend that you give us a call at 1-888-550-0062 and a sales rep will assist you in making sure you have everything you need to attach the Leaf and Lawn Vacuum to your mower.

Q.Can vacuum be used on multiple mowers? If not, do you supply adapter hook ups?
A.Our vacuum systems connect to mower decks with a deck adapter. We offer a universal adapter that can be modified to fit your discharge opening specifically if you do not currently have one for your mower. If you have multiple mowers you would like to use the vacuum with, you will likely need an adapter for each one.

Q.Is there a hose head attachment to hug the ground to pull up acorns?
A.We offer only one vacuum hose attachment for the Tow-Behind Leaf and Lawn Vacuum and it is a handheld attachment. To use the vacuum hose attachment, you need to unhook the inlet hose from the deck adapter and then attach the vacuum hose to the inlet hose. The hose is 14 feet long, 6" in diameter, and when attached to the 90" intake hose, the total length is approximately 22 feet (not including the nozzle). With 22 feet of reach, this hose can easily get under shrubbery, in corners, window wells and under fences. Please feel free to phone our Sales Team if you have more questions.

Q.Will the tow-behind leaf/lawn vacuum pick up acorns? We have a ton of oak trees, and the horses are addicted to acorns, so we are looking for a way to get rid of them.
A.The blower inlet hose that attaches between the deck adapter and the blower housing inlet is now larger in diameter. We went from a 6 inch ID hose to an 8 inch ID hose for improved suction. The Premier at 66 mph and the Pro/Pro-XL at 72 mph. A larger diameter hose also means less likely to clog.

Whatever material your mower deck can lift, our Leaf and Lawn Vacuum will suck the debris through the impeller and mulch it. When you mow with the Leaf and Lawn Vacuum attached, you will get approximately 10 times the lifting power of your mower alone.

We also offer the optional handheld vacuum hose, which works well if the acorns are imbedded in the ground or if you have longer grasses to vacuum them from. This ergonomically designed hose can be used in those hard-to-reach spots and attaches easily and quickly.

Thanks for your interest and question. ph
