Leaf Vacuum recommendations?

Starting to shop for a leaf vacuum. With initial searching there is conflicting info on so many models and applications. Here is my scenario: 2+ acres of heavily wooded lawn. about 80 oak trees and the rest in orchard type trees. I am in Oregon so the leaves are going to be mostly wet for a good part of the season. I have a Hustler Super Duty 60" deck with the 25hp Kawi motor. Have looked at the DR series and the Cyclone. I also see Agri-fab, Brimly, and a couple others out there I can't recall the names of. It seems like the DR is the most heavily advertised, but the Cyclone is right up there too, The others seem to suffer from poor design and have more "issues". Right now my son takes care of the leaves with a big backpack blower and tarping them off to a corner of the property.

I may use my Kubota with belly mower for this as I keep my Super Duty set up for mulching (5 acres mowed total)

What would you pro's do in my shoes?
