Mulching leaves only work for you southern guys with very little leaves, Its impossible to mulch the leaves in the fall time up north.
If it were me trying to do what you want without all the proper leaf equipment like we have north, I would take your little mower and keep mowing in circles working form the outside in until you mowed all leaves into a pile in the middle of the yard then i would rake them all on a big 20x30 tarp and pull it with my mower over to the burn pile.
