Man did this come fast. I ordered it last Friday from my dealer and it is on my machine Tuesday. That is great service and he put it together for me for ten bucks.
I used it briefly after I put it on. This thing will push leaves with no problem. I took piles of wet stuff and the motor didn't even strain. I can't wait to put it to the test.

It will come in around 350.00 for everything, price, tax, shipping and assembly.
Talked price a little but I needed it and he got it. It will pay for itself in about a day if not sooner. On top of that I don't have to grind with doubles now so the PTO will last longer too.

Ive wondered about getting a leaf pusher. Is it a good buy, looks like it could speed thing up especially if you have a trac-vac.

Ed,

whats your planed usage for that? Are you going to just drive around with it or are you using it to move large piles of leaves from a blower?

I made one last year from some leftover plywood and 2x6's and it worked great for my scag 48. I wished I had a dig. cam. to take some pics for you guys. With a running start in 4th gear I could move some piles that were up to my chest on to tarps which were pulled by a jd tractor, man that was an easy way to move leaves.

I have some large properties as well as some mid sized adjoining properties that become one large leaf forest. The city has curbside pickup here so the faster we get the leaves to the curb the better it is on us and the equipment. Prices have already been established on these properties so time is of the essence.

Do they sell anything like that for ZTR's ? What I do now is use my push blower until the piles get to big to move anymore then I take my ZTR and drop the deck all the way to the ground and just run into the pile and it pushes them the rest the way to the curb. Seems to work ok most the time.

Yup, its a JRCO Leaf Plow. I considered getting one too. One question: The tines on the bottom of it-do they actually "rake" the leaves up, or do the leaves go right through the tines?

Here it is.

With all the rain we are having, and the conditions we're under, this looks like a remedy for some of these places. It is ridiculous, here.

All of the JRCO products work on just about any mower that has enough hp to push them. Once you get a mounting bar you can use any of their attatchments. All of their attatchments fit onto a universal mounting bar that runs about $80.00 or so, depending on how you get it.

I made one last year and it works great for pushing really big piles. Although if the leaves are damp at all, it packs them really dense and makes them a real pain to suck up with a leaf loader. But if the city's picking them up, I wouldn't worry about that;)

I use a piece of plywood just lying in front of my walker
if the piles get to heavy I use the snow plow.
I only push them once there in the street to consolidate
for parking purposes. good test for up coming snow season too
