View Full Version : Leaf Clean-up Question

11-07-2004, 06:43 PM
Hi, Just wanted to get some opinions/suggestions. First, for my leaf clean-up system, I mostly mulch, mulch, mulch, with very little to no "removal". I use a John Deere Z-Trak with gator blades and a quick chute cover. I also mulch with an Xmark 36" W/B, gators and mulch kit. Both pretty much reduce leaves to powder, no problem, this is what my customers want. However, on a few occasions, where the leaves are REAL thick, it still leaves too much debris behind for my taste. What I'm looking for are any ideas/suggestions for picking up this mulched-up leaf debris. I'm leaning in the direction an accelerator for the JD. Thanks in advance for your time, Tony

If you are leaving to much behind for your taste then put your catcher on and cut it again to pick up everything left behind.

Thanks, thats what I had in mind, just wanted opinions on the accelerator itself for leaf clean-ups. How does it perform ect...

i have an accelerater catcher on my Lesco w/b and it does a great job. I mulch first then catch them. If you dont mulch first you will fill the catcher up too fast. Its also very dusty. Buy the dust cover too.
