Official Fall Clean Up Thread 2013

Since it has been and is around the fall clean up time I thought it would be a cool idea to make a thread of the clean ups you guys do. Anything from a small pile to an entire drive way full of leaves post em up here.

As well if you guys got any advice, tips, and techniques feel free to share.

I got to put some time on my hurricane today and its nothing short of amazing! I was working alone and got done what my crew of 3 usually does. Now I just need some larger cleanups to really make it shine!

Those are awesome. We run a 14hp little wonder. Love the rear self propel.

How does the hurricane work on hills/hillsides?

they are pretty good on hills once the low oil shut off is disconnected, until then they shut off on hills which is pretty dangerous.
