    I was reading this thread and got to thinking about the suction problem mentioned...The grate that comes with it has 10 segments...I was wondering if you replaced the grate with a solid piece of something-or-other with slots cut into it the equivalent size of the two largest segments, would the suction increase enough by restricting the airflow to suck the leaves into the slots to be trimmed?

    just spitballin'...

          not sure if theres still a suction issue but i have an idea!

          mount a good fan in a box with a screen over it.

          Now cut a hole in the box and put a tube PVC or whatever and hook it up to the tube coming from the trimmer!

          DONE

          Creates what should be a good amount of vacume and all your trim goes in the box

              TOO COOL!!!

              I have been waiting for something like this to pop up. I really wanted a spinpro for my small set up, But this thing looks like it would be just the ticket.

              It really is too bad that the people who came up with many of the available trimmers are looking to make a killing off their machines, I mean look at what is involved in their construction, I am quite sure more goes into a high end food processor which costs much less. Yep I am going to get me one of these babys, I think it would be a huge time saver.

              They look like the perfect start of a grest little trimmer. I was wondering about the 300/500W versions. I would guess the Pro version would be a little more stout in its construction. I am thinking about taking it apart and building a housing for it out of some large PVC tube, with an added port for a small shop vac to hook up to, a ghetto frestanding trimmer but for like $5K less. I have a pile of ideas on this one.

              Thanks for the links, pics, and ideas!!

                I am so happy i saw this thread.... so happy.

                Medi usea... i was thinking the same thing a few pages back. covering up even the top 1/2 of the area would work. u could even use duct tape. jb weld an some coat hanger wire and your in business.

                  I bought the garden groom on Ebay for $85 after reading this thread [thanks!]and it arrived today. I think the answer to grill/grate is to get a 9" cake cooling rack and glue on with legs facing up. Looks pretty easy to create a short sleeve and attach to a vacuum wand with duct tape instead of using enclosed cloth hose and receptacle bag, whose sleeve is affixed with a velcro strip. I'll give that a try tomorrow and see how the suction is.
                  Hope I have better luck with this menacing blade than the saran wrap cutter.

                    Couldn't find 9" round grate to fit perfectly so got a larger square one and used glue gun to attach. Modified with 2.2 hp vacuum-cut hose to 1 1'2 ft. and gorilla taped to mouth of ocean spray juice bottle. Bottle was attached to opening on GG by cutting out side, a little smaller than GG opening. I cut 4 corner slits 1/4", mounted and taped. Slightly less trim flying around but still not enough suction. Grate works well.
