  8 Questions
Q: I have been looking for a better way to pick-up (now don't laugh) the house manure in the barns and pasture. My horse seem to like to leave their manure in two areas. Will this vacuum pick-up semi-dry and or dry manure?
by Greg from Oklahoma on March 18, 2014

A: Greg - Why would I laugh? We actually get that questions pretty frequently. Unfortunately, the Agri-Fab lawn vacuum is not designed to pick up manure - either wet or dry. We do however, carry a pasture vac from PECO that is designed specifically for this particular task. Click on this link to view the basic PECO pasture vac, which would probably work out for you: Pasture Vac

Q: My yard has a fairly dramatic slope. Can the Agri-Fab Chip-N-Vac Tow-Behind Lawn Vacuum, Model 55249, be towed up and down and across a sloped yard?
by Joe from South Carolina on December 07, 2013

A: Thanks for your inquiry.

This model is just like any other trailer or tow behind item that you would pull with your tractor. You want to be careful because when the vacuum fills up and you are on a slope, the debris can get pushed to one side and you risk tipping over. I would recommend contacting Agri-Fab directly a (800) 448-9282 and see what they would recommend and the degree of slope it can handle. Anymore questions, feel free to ask.

Thanks and have a great day!

Q: I have a Gravley 0-turn 48" deck would I need adapter
Does the additional vacuum hose hook to the end of mower end hose

by Keith Konicy from Missouri on December 04, 2013

A: Keith,

You certainly would need the zero-turn adapter in order to fit your mower. The hose kit would be installed at the engine of the Chip and Vac. You have to remove the hose adapter that connects to your mower and replace it with the hand held. It is an easy 3 wingnut removal.
by Bob, Product Expert
Q: Does this have some sort of vacuum base hose hooks to. Or do you have to get of mower to use hose for sucking
by Keith Konicy from Missouri on November 29, 2013

A: Keith,

This is a tow behind unit designed to be connected to and pulled by a mower. The hose comes equipped with a deck adapter to connect to a mower.
by Bob, Product Expert
Q: Will this Tow and vac pick up walnuts?
by Colleen Votsmier from Illinois on November 28, 2013

A: Colleen,

Yes, but the 55249 was not designed for this type of debris, so your impeller life may be drastically shortened. Also, this vacuum, cannot collect nuts for consumption. They would be destroyed.
by Bob, Product Expert
Q: have a kabota tractor with a 60" deck . Any problems with the attachment to the deck?
by Quintin Wallis from Missouri on November 10, 2013

A: Quintin,

I am afraid that yes, you may experience trouble. The 55249 is only designed for decks on tractors and zero turns up to a 54" maximum.

Agri-fab does not make a Tow and Vac for anything larger.
by Bob, Product Expert
Q: will it fit on the back of a 48inch zero turn scag ?
by Ed from Pennsylvania on October 13, 2013

A: Ed,

If your zero turn uses a hitch-pin and only if you purchase the extension hose for zero turns.

Here is a link to the hose you would need to purchase:

Zero Turn Extension Hose
by Bob, 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.
