Not sure my yard can handle a separate system with another motor. Lots of trees and I make a lot of turns so I am thinking it would be best if it is attached to the back of the lawn tracker unless the attachment is some what small.
Do you have the blower mounted on your tube to fill your rear baskets? I am in the same boat as you, I could make room for a tow behind but the blower defiantly made the clogging a rare issue. I would see it a total hassle trying to tow between the trees and ditches besides dealing with another motor to keep running.
I have a John Deere X590 with powerflow bagging system, 14 bushel capacity Works great, when you get into the power bagging it gets expensive. I used my Cub Cadet with triple bags for years but got tired of the chute plugging up due to wet leaves etc. After making the move to power bagging I won’t look back.
How much land are you doing with this setup?
You want a tow behind that can hold a lot of material. Next you want at least a 5 HP vac/blower. Then you will need a good boot to attach to the deck
Any Simplicity with a triple bag system and the Turbo deck that very rarely clog is really one of the best. Simplicity is not sold in big box stores,only through their dealer network.They don’t build any junk like MTD.They are available with a 61″ fabricated deck.They are known for the best cut of any home owner model lawn tractor.Some have power steering,4w/d, and full hydralics. With proper care will last a lifetime!
\ well. you have to have the area to turn around on. I was guessing you had at least a 1/2 acre ? If you have lots of leaves that you need to pick up in a smaller area. buy a blower and blow them into piles and rake onto a tarp and then to wherever you want ?

“There are a terrible lot of lies going about the world, and the worst of it is that half of them are true.” [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]
Lawn sweepers do work great,but they typically fill up to quickly unless you first mulch and windrow the leaves.
That adds more time that would be better spent mowing with mulching blades and bagging,one operation instead of two.For 1 acre a lawn tractor with a turbo blower deck is a better option.I use my Simplicity every fall,mulch and bag and it even gets Spruce needles and pine cones as well as all leaves that i turn into Garden compost.Not to mention that trying to back a sweeper up to dump it is no easy task.JMO.

If you are looking for an electric riding lawn mower with all the power of a gas model without the fumes and lots of helpful features, the RYOBI 80V HP Brushless 42 in. Battery Riding Lawn Tractor is our top pick. According to the manufacturer, it has the equivalent of a 21-horsepower engine. We love that its three 80V 10Ah batteries allow you to cut up to 2 acres on a single charge (about 60 minutes of runtime) and quickly recharge in less than 2.5 hours thanks to the onboard charger. In fact, you can even use the RYOBI Riding Mower app to check if the batteries are ready to go, for added convenience. You can also keep tabs on the charging status, as well as battery level, and runtime on the LCD screen that’s on the mower itself. Other extra features we appreciate include LED lights, front and back storage compartments, two tow hitches, a hitch for RYOBI-compatible attachments, cup holders, and 2 USB ports to charge your phone.
Aside from the power and features this tractor provides, it will leave your lawn looking great. This riding tractor has four steel blades with 13 different cutting height positions to choose from (within 1.5 to 4.5 inches), so you can really fine-tune the look of your lawn. You also have three options for grass clippings: bag, side discharge, or mulch (although the bagger and mulching kit are sold separately). This is a powerful, feature-packed riding lawn tractor so it comes at a bigger price tag than other picks. If you don’t need all of these features, you may want to choose a more budget-friendly model. However, we think if you are looking for a great electric riding mower with all of the features and power you need, this is your best bet.
