Inspired by TooManyGT's cart build (thanks Brad!) I have started on one for my Homelite. The Homelite I got Thanksgiving of 2010 came with a rear pto powered leaf vac, but no cart or bagger. So I'm building one using Brad's design. His build is located here:

Here is the thread of picking up the Homelite: http://www.mytractorforum.com/showthread.php?t=161448

Here is the vac unit:

I started on the undercarriage frame last winter during my layoff. When I went back to work in mid-February, it got shoved in the shed. Yesterday I got it out, and made a new material list. Went to the steel supply on Saturday, and got started a bit last night and then today. Most of the stuff I used so far was bought last year.

I wasn't happy with the undercarriage, so I pulled it apart and straightened it a bit. Then I got going on the cart frame. Here's where I'm at now.

Looking great so far, Scott. I like the size. Not to big or to small.

PS your year of purchase is wrong.:fing32:
