Q: Is there an electric start available? I had a 5hp CubCadet that I could hardly pull to start so I am concerned about a 9hp. Am I also to assume that the 44 gallon receptacle needs to be purchased separately?
by Maureen DePaul from New York on November 21, 2013

A: Maureen,

Unfortunately, we do not carry a model with an electric start. I wouldn't say that this would be easier to start as a 5 HP, but using quality fuel and oil will help in starting. I am happy to report that the receptacle is included as part no. 21 in the owner's manual.

Q: I have two questions ? 1. Can the 44gal capacity cv388-r be dismatled for seasonal storage? 2. can I establish a monthly account rather than credit card? I,m talking about the leaf vacuum&chipper push or tow behind...
by Steve Williamson from Indiana on November 02, 2013

A: Steve,

I believe the CV 388-R can be dismantled to a point for storage purposes, but it would depend on how much work you would want for yourself at the beginning of the season.

Here is a copy of the owner's manual to explain the how you would do this:

The only payment plans we are able to work with is through Paypal's BILL ME LATER. It is a 6 months same as cash financing program you would find online.

Highly Recommended
I bought this leaf vacuum this past spring to do some yard clean-up, to getting rid of branches, and also for leaves. A couple good things I like about it: It's small enough to pull behind a regular tractor (I didn't put the front wheel on however), It's easy to put together, and it has a very powerful engine!!

It has a decent sized branch chipper too.

The things I'd suggest are: You really can't chip up any branches bigger than 1.5 inches in diameter, with leaves the bin gets full very... more
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Issues:
1. The hardware bag was not accurately packed. Short 2 bolts and several extras were included that were not needed.
2. The hitch of this machine rides so high on the front wheel I had to modify the... more
