  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.
by Joe, Product Expert
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.
by Joe, Product Expert
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.
by Joe, Product Expert
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.

Q: CAN I PULL THIS BEHIND A RZ-4623 HUSQVARNA ZERO TURN MOWER. IT HAS A 21 HP ENGINE. I HAVE BEEFED UP THE HITCH
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.
by Joe, Product Expert
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 Joe, 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 Joe, 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.

You won't be able to lug the Agri-Fab 55188 lawn vacuum around your yard, but if you have a lawn and garden tractor or a zero turn mower, you'll be able to clean up leaves and other lawn debris quickly and easily.

The Agri-Fab 55188 tow-behind lawn vacuum features a large 32 cubic foot collection hopper. Once you fill the hopper up with leaves, it tilts back for easy dumping. The Briggs & Stratton 205cc engine

My driveway is 100 yards long and Oak trees down both sides. In the past I would spend all weekend raking leaves and making many trips to the back yard woods to dump. With this Agri-Fab leaf vacuum I spent two hours after work one day and accomplished this task. Great time and Back Saver.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Fast

This One Sucks!!!! That's A Good Thing.
I have about 1-1/2 acre property w/ about 30 Hickory, Oak, and Walnut trees. Yes, there are lots of BIG leaves, and also acorns and nuts. I've found it's best to pre-mow the lawn to reduce the size of the leaves, then go back over it w/ the Mow-N-Vac and it really packs the trailer full - and heavy. I can usually collect the entire lawn in 4 to 5 loads with this method, but if I don't pre-mow it will be as many as 15 loads - that's a lot of dumping. The one thing about my use - it is VERY noisy... more
Pros: I'd Buy It Again

Works Great! But Needs A Few Improvements.
I like the unit a lot. These are the improvements I made, first thing I found, the intake hose at unit came off all the time, no mater how tight the hose clamp was! I drilled three equally spaced holes around plastic intake at unit, installed three stove bolts, added a wire around each one, then under hose clamp, then back to stove bolt, make sure you use flat washers on both sides with a Nilock nut, do not tighten to much, could crack housing. A brace is needed, for latching of trailer hopper... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again

Leaf Vac Number Two
There's a few problems with it. The flexible boot lets dust & stuff blow on the back of your neck. The back door needs reinforcement. When the leaves get built up in the trailer the back door comes loose at the bottom. Then you have a mess. The door never came loose on the one I had for fifteen years. The last thing is..after it has run for a while, it is very hard starting. Otherwise everything else works good. I hope this lasts for fifteen too.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, Quiet, I'd Buy It Again

Not Bad, I Expected Better Quality
The rivets were coming off, the screen came out, the hose breaks all the time, the back door comes off when in use, the chute to the trailer rips, the chute where the blades are broke. So we had to replace a lot parts.?! When you pay that kind of money for that in a short time, you should not have to replace them that soon.?!
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Light Weight
Cons: Low Quality, Durability, We Had To Modifi It

I am very happy with the performance of this unit. It has a lot of power and does a great job sucking up the leaves and mulching them. The system dumps very easily. I would highly recommend it.

Good Piece Of Equipment
Unit works very well. Lots of suction. Works very well on wet leaves using the hose from the mower. 5 inch hose tends to clog when picking up leaves, but just at the opening, once they get into the hose they are gone. Overall I am impressed with it.
My brother saw me use it and is going to buy one.
