Or mulched. The leaf plow pic is like the kinds of piles we sometimes clean up and remove. Every post I see about "just mulch them" cracks me up when there's piles like that, especially when they're cold/icy/wet, or all 3 at once.

Yeah I like the leaf plow idea, I think I may look into one for the front of my WB.

Seems like lots are home-made. Anyone make prefab ones?

Now i know mulching doesnt work too good when they are deep, but how about a mower with a good power bagging system? Those should work pretty damn good right? Just have to dump the bagger a lot I would think...

Dont know of anybody but jrco that makes them. They're aluminum so they're fairly light.

Bagging works great but very time consuming. An acre of deep wet leaves will take a very long time to bag. Mulching deep wet leaves makes a mess, is near impossible to make disappear, time consuming, and running back and forth over a wet yard makes a real mess of a yard. Mulching them is great when its possible but when theyre deep, wet/icy you gotta move them with a blower or plow and load them.

I should also have said, if you have a large bagging system, they are extremely helpful, but with the amount of leaves like in the plow pic, its still time consuming to bag them.

A wheeled blower or the stand-ons that have been shown, can make huge piles very quickly and be plowed very quickly

We plow them to the back of the property if the customer chooses or plow them to the leaf loader, suck them up and off to the dump unless somebody in the area wants them for fill.
