I think for us in the Northeast it is more economical to collect or blow leaves rather than trying to grind them into the turf.
Took me about 35 minutes for front and back. 55 to 60 buckw per hour. Had i bagge d i would have had 2 or 3 bags to haul off x 10 yards is a lotta debris....dump is 1 hour drive away in traffic @ 35 min charge...not cost effective plus depleating the soil by bagging which also removes dirt and organic material.
