Has anybody seen or know anything about these??? I bought the one pictured below yesterday. It has a hose that connects to the tractor deck as well as a 15 or so feet long hose for cleaning out landscaping. I cannot seem to find any info on it. It is made by Parker. It has a replacement Honda motor, but the rest looks original and really well built. Thanks!

I have this owners guide dated March 1985. Let me know if you need anything else out of here.

I have used one for years, still do. Does a good job. The only issue I have is getting replacement parts for the vacuum and the boot.
I tried replacing my engine with a Honda but the gas tank interfered with the vac assembly so put a Briggs on instead.
Replaced the nylon mesh in the louvers with 1/4" wire.
If you decide you want to part out in the future let me know.

If you just need a boot to fit your tractor then look for a Trac-Vac dealer. They have lots of options for boots attaching to different tractors and mower decks. I run my trac-vac also with what is deemed to be "hi-lift" mower blades.

The cover on the owner's guide that Steve has shown us it appears that the motor / vac is mounted on a seperate frame that would pin to the tongue of the trailer and when not being used can be rolled away to be stored - those extra options that compaies these days would deem as costing too much for adding some "logic" to their products to help make them sell - more concerned with how money will be pushed down to the bottom line.
