Default PTO Driven Leaf/Grass Catcher?

Anyone ever seen or heard of a rear pto driven lawn bagger for a tractor? Just wondering about how well they work. Just saw a picture of one for a Yanmar and never heard or saw anything like that before.

Humbler,

I have the Trac Vac 854. It is a mean machine. It is PTO driven machine. If its not nailed to the ground it is coming up. I have used it for the last 4 years. My neighbor love it too. Especially when I have time to catch their leaves for them. But took a 2 hour leaf blower job to a 10 minute ride on the Deere. Wouldn't do it another way. I can do 3 yards, about 2.75 acres, loaded with leaves, in about 25 minutes.

Yeah, that's not exactly what I'm talking about. This one was mounted directly to the PTO that rests under the fender of the machine. No 3 point hitch needed. It sits in a box frame very close to the rear seat.

Do you have any pics or videos of it in action or how it hooks? Is it quick hitch compatible. slkpk

Paul, that's closer, but that one still mounts to the 3 point hitch. This one bolts directly to the tractor rearend somehow. I guess it must be a one off Yanmar thing.

I went on Yanmar's website last night and it looks like they make the same type design for one of their newer big tractors, but the pictures on the site suck and you can't blow them up...

Oh well, I have pictures and I will try to buy it, as the tractor is for sale with the blower system, but its in England....

The one I saw on the simplicity sunstar ran off the rear pto. No belts just a short drive shaft coming off the rear pto to the blower unit. Dale
