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.

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 Dale, 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 Dale, 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 Dale, 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 Dale, 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 Dale, 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.
by Dale, Product Expert

The Agri-Fab 55249 Chip-N-Vac was designed for larger properties with many trees. Not only does this unit pick up leaves and other debris on the ground, it also acts as a 2" chipper. This gives the end user the ability to pick up and chip fallen limbs and branches. It is two tools in one at a very fair price.

Equipped with a 205cc Briggs & Stratton engine. This unit has more than enough power to rid your property of leaves, pine needles and grass clippings. The engine provides... more

From The Manufacturer
Agri-fab Chip-n-vac Tow-behind Lawn Vacuum
The Agri-Fab Mow N Vac is the ultimate time saver when it comes to picking up leaves in the fall. The Mow N Vac connects to your riding mower or zero turn mower using the universal hitch. Once hooked up, the Mow N Vac hose connects to the mower deck with an adapter you cut to size, now you are ready to get started. All of the debris that you mow over gets sucked into the hose and then reduced again by the impellers inside of the Vac. When the large 26 bushel cart gets full, simply release the... more

I Seriously Consider The Chipper/vac A Life Saver.
I have an old Chip & Vac (perhaps 15 years or so) with which I maintain a heavily "treed" lawn of about 2 acres in Michigan. In the Fall, I spend the second half of October and the first 1/2 of November vacuuming leaves - almost daily.

I require the use of a hay elevator to empty the collection box onto a pile in the woods, because the leaf pile is over 10 feet high initially. It would be physically impossible for me to manually rake the yard and collect/dispose of the leaves... more

Very Bad Customer Service
I placed my order for the chip and vac. on 4/24/17 . I called their customer service people 4 times . I have received 3 different responses . 1- it has already shipped , 2- the unit was missing a part and the manufacturer had to put it on the order , which held up shipment. Now just a few minutes ago another person from customer service told me the manufacturer has changed the model number and my product has not shipped because no one had alerted Agri-Fab . Today is May 5/5/17 and the product... more

Michael,
I sincerely apologize for the delays on your order and understand your immense frustration. We have been in contact with Agri-Fab, who is also reaching out to you directly, to help resolve this situation. The model number for this unit was updated due to updates that were made to a few portions of the machine, which is what had caused the lengthy delay. This is not an excuse for the delay and we are working as fast as we can, alongside Agri-Fab, to remedy this problem. We truly appreciate your patience.

It has been confirmed that your unit is shipping today, alongside some additional tokens of appreciation from Agri-Fab as a thank you for your continued patience. If you ever have any questions about your machine, please do not hesitate to give us a call and we will do everything we can to assist. Our mission is to help folks just like you. Again, thank you very much for your business and I hope you will give us another shot in the future when you are ready to purchase more power equipment.

Very Effective Piece Of Equipment.
Overall, very happy with the Chip-N-Vac. Very effective in picking up leaves rapidly. Long trailer is difficult to maneuver in tight spots.

Unfortunately I was using the hand held hose attachment (purchased separately) when a golf ball size rock was sucked up.

The impeller assemble and outer housing was damaged resulting in $220 worth of repair parts. Vacuum is very strong. Use caution when using with hand held attachment.
Pros: High Quality, Fast, Reliable
Cons: Expensive, Not very manuverable in tight spots

The Product Is Great, The Shipping Awful
The product is great except the back door comes off easily while in operation, the packaging was awful. Dented on one side and basically ruined for looks. The shipping was the issue!!
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, Easy To Store, Id like it undamaged
Cons: Packaging

Worth The Money, But Not Trouble-free
We just moved into a home that has a lot of oak trees in the yard. We raked by hand last year and decided this year to get a leaf vac. This product shipped with the incorrect assembly manual, but I was able to get it together. Agri-Fab promptly sent the correct manual as well.

A couple of issues: The mower adapter is definitely a DIY process. Imagine cutting a box to conform to the output of your mower deck, fitting all the contours so that all the suction is directed into the mower. ... more

Does What It Was Intended To Do!
The Agri Fab was easy to assemble. The deck adapter was a challenge. There was no layout for a Toro ZT mower. Take your time measuring and cutting your layout.

The vacuum/chipper worked well, impressive really. I have 2 acres of yard and it was well worth the investment.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Features, Easy To Store

Works Great! But Not Perfect.
The Pros:

Works great at picking up the leaves, even wet ones and blowing them into the mulcher and into the box. Little or no problems with clogging. Motor starts easily and has plenty of power. It's amazing how many leaves will fit into the box before it has to be emptied. Was pretty easy to finish up the assembly and get it running. The template for the plastic box attachment to my mower deck was accurate and fits well after I cut out the pattern.

Cons:

The mulcher was shipped on... more

For The Price, Its Great
Wish it ground up the leaves better with the handheld pickup. Also hard to start after its been running, due to the big flywheel keeps the engine turning over after engine is shut off flooding the engine. We now slow it down and turn fuel off till it runs out of fuel. It will start right up then.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Price, I'd Buy It Again

Much Too Heavy
This machine is a great tool but because of the location of the motor/blower/chipper the unit tongue weight is extremely heavy. The addition of a tongue jack/caster would greatly improve the manageability of this unit specially for older folks or someone like me with limited mobility and Cerebral Palsy. I installed a caster/tongue jack and because of the low ride height at the coupler the jack had to be modified. Also the 12' vacuum hose should be included.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Heavy, Needs, Tongue Jack
