    Default Is any one using a DR.vacuum with their JD?

    I noticed that the biggest JD material collection system has a capacity of 14 bushels, whereas the DR.vacuum has a 315 gallon storage capacity.

    Don't you love how they use strange units to give you difficulties in evaluating and comparing them?
    Okay, the JD model is 15 cubic feet and the DR model is 42 cubic feet.

    you can ask google "14 bushels to gallons" ..... format is number units "to" units

    14 US bushels = 130.328491 US gallons

    or 14 US bushels = 17.4223852 cubic feet

    or 315 US gallons = 42.1093752 cubic feet

    or 315 US gallons = 33.8375743 US bushels

    I had looked into them but decided against the DR since it's a trailer type of setup and I figured it would limit my mobility too much. Rather than the 3-bag MCS, you may be able to convince your dealer to get you the larger hydraulic dump system and some front counterweights. Had I known that was possible I probably would have chosen that route just for the 3PH mounting:

    If you think the regular MCS is expensive you'll fall over when you get the price on the hydraulic dump. Yikes!
