Nice But Not So Connect Friendly
I bought this machine to take care of the leaves for an acre and half , plus help the neighbors , the whole concept is pretty simple but I found it impossible to hook up boot to lawn mower discharge, still haven't figured it out and I am very mechanically inclined, I will probably make a custom sheet metal boot to make it work, I bought the wand and that's what I've been using, it is awesome, EXPENSIVE for a hose.

Peco 20 Cu Ft 205cc Tow Behind Lawn Vacuum
I purchased the Peco 20 Cu Ft vacuum a while back. It showed up nicely packaged in a crate with no damaged or missing parts. Installation was fairly straight forward, but could be a little more difficult for folks with a minimum amount of tools or the ability to lift heavier items, such as the engine etc. I would recommend at least two people to assemble the unit. The unit is well built, the only two complaints I have are the weight of engine being mounted on the tongue of the frame, is not so... more
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Reliable, High Quality
Cons: Heavy

Peco 20 Cf Lawn Vacuum
Bought the machine and had it delivered. There was some minor damage during shipping but PED refunded my $25 for the damage. They shipped it with a very large collection boot that the customer must cut to fit the deck I have a 48 inch deck and the boot is still way too big for the deck. I was able to used it, but I had to modify the mounting hardware and do a lot of custom trimming.

I'm mechanically inclined with lots of tools and it was a pain in the rear. Your average... more

Singing In The Rain
I have a 1 acre lot with downwind leaves from the neighbors added to the mix. Assembly was not hard. There was no indication in the instructions about cutting the hoses, or if they were supposed to scrunch. I cut them. I have a John Deere. The universal boot on the PECO unit requires the Deere chute cover to be removed bolts and all. This leaves a cut away with the blades dangerously exposed.

OK with PECO boot on, dangerous with it off. Lots of situations call for changing back and... more

Over All Unit
The Peco 20 lawn vac., showed up on the freight truck on time . and to my surprise it was partially assemble . The rest of the assembly was a snap . in the reviews that I had read prior to my purchase had me a little gun shy , stating assembly was a nightmare (not the case ).

Maybe the factory has changed the way it ships it's products do to some prior feed back , anyway it's good now. Now in regards to the Quality and craftsmanship , well they simply set the bar extremely high . As a... more

I have a 1968 allis chalmers/w left-side sidedischarge. machine cme 3/4 assembled dicharge boot is only dor rt-side discharge. I made my own boot,turned the motor 180% on the mount and everything else hooked up fine. The machine works great. Very impressed. wish the the trailer was bigger as it fills up fast. machine is well-built. should last a long time.
Pros: Reliable, High Quality, Durable, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Only For Rt-side Discharge

Unit Started First Pull.
Purchased unit for a 1.5 acre yard surrounded by trees.
unit ran well, with the occasional hose popping off of peco box. One issue we had was the hose connector to the Vacuum unit was NOT fully tapped, I had to purchase a Tap to finish thread so the it would hold in place, secondly the bolt for this was not provided, so I tapped the unit and had to purchase bolts everything worked very well.
Pros: Reliable, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Packaging, Instruction And Video Could Be Better

Good Product
It took a bit to set it up and a few modifications need to be done. The instructions to put it together good be improved. I ran 52 loads so far and the shoot that connects to the mower cracked. I put a 1/4" plywood 5"x8" with JD weld over the crack and hope that will stop it from cracking apart.


Will order a new shoot soon. Motor starts and runs great. I have a 60" zero turn should have got a larger unit. When the grass/leaves are wet I do not take a full cut. ... more
Pros: Price, Reliable
Cons: Bad Instructions, Poor Design On The Way The Housing Connections

Peco 20 Vac
Assembled easily, the mower discharge chute was a little big, but it works. My unit(the 20) is a little small( but I knew that) so it means emptying more frequently. Overall it's a well built unit that works great. Leaves are still work, this machine just makes it easier!
