Depending what kind of leaves and how many sticks and weather its wet out, pushing the leaves can make the piles very difficult to vac. And I use 20 hp vacs with 12 inch hoses. But you need to ask your self how much more time would you lose if your were still slugging it out with blowers. And that is how to compare it, not does it take longer to vac the leaves but did the job go quicker because you shaved hours off the lawn with the plow. When your moving 500-1000 pounds of leaves in a single push with the plow sometimes its hard to see your self trying to work that accost the lawn with just blowers.
