I haven't used mine since we moved last spring. And thank God. I will never have another pine tree on my property ever again. That was literally a 365 day a year job cleaning up pine cones and needles (straw). And if a tropical storm or huge T-storm went through, it would take days to clean all of the crap up.

Around here the pine straw goes in beds...

This is my 4th year with the Cyclone. I have the XL with a 9hp motor. I wouldnt do leaves without it. Sure it's long but the time and work it saves it it is well worth it. A little planning ahead on how to tackle a yard goes a long way. When I'm blowing out the beds I also go bout 2 feet aroung other obsticales. Working on the perimter you will know the limits on turning and adjust. If its a "tight" yard instead of trying to turn the thing around just go backwards across lawn. Once you get to know how to work with its strenghts and work "with" it, it's a time saver especialy for being solo.

Is there any possibility that it could be a stand-alone unit, or is it dependant on the mower???

You can change it to suit your individual needs, yes. It doesn't need the mower to do it's job. I'm working on massively changing it now.

Thanks for posting that picture... Now I have something to describe in the real world to the various implement dealers and perhaps get away from the deer in the headlights look...
