As it seems with everything I own or purchase, the E-Z Vac was not complete when I purchased it. It was missing the canvas top for the trailer, and there were no hoses to connect the mower to the vacuum system. Since I didn’t feel qualified to make a new top and you can no longer purchase one, I made the top out of sheet metal.
You can notice the opening in the back at the top. I originally had planned to enclose that area with a screen, but it turns out it’s not necessary. There’s a deflector that blows the incoming grass downward so very little escapes out the top. And, the impeller moves so much air that the large opening works out well.
I found the hose that I needed in the classifieds. The diameter was an inch too large, but the price was right. I made up the difference in diameter by wrapping duct tape around the hose connection to build it up an inch.
The vacuum works great and sure beats raking.
