Ryan get a set of gator blades for your machine and a chute blocker and mulch the crap out of the leaves you have. Tarping and blowing are effective but time consuming. You can also tarp and drag with the mower but once again it takes time and effort. Grinding moderate amounts of leaves is good for the lawns also and if you do have thicker accumulations you can use your backpack blower to disperse them. You will have to spend a little for the blades and blocker but you will reduce the volume of leaves by 80 to 90%. If you are handy you can fab your own blocker out of steel and save the cost. It just has to flop in front of your discharge. You will feel better at the end of the day and you will make more money for time spent which is the name of the game.
