Chop leaves down with mower blow into a row leaf plow into pile then blow to clean up remainder of row leaf plow onto tarp toss in trailer and stomp when it starts getting full. But like others have said that's after investing money into things.

Never used a cyclone rake.

Leaf plow, leaf loader, wheeled blower, big backpack blowers.

The guys(there will be plenty and most all from southern climates)that tell you to mulch them with the mower, bag them up, and blow the mess, have no clue when it comes to what a large amount of leaves really is...and certainly don't know what's it like in cold, wet, icy conditions.

He said his Cyclone Z-10 is in another league. The next neighbor to him, also, says the same. He's got an A-F and Cyclone.

I sent a message to Cyclone about mounting options on my X-ONE. Within an hour, one of the reps called me. He walked me through all the options and recommendations for my business, assigned me ref#, and sent out an info packet. They have a 12-month trial period, so there's no risk. I'll be ordering mine, this week.

For the trial period is all of the money due up front and then if you end up not liking it you can get a refund or how does that work?

IIRC, you have to pay the freight back to them. But, yes, you pay it all upfront.

I was mistaken, Cyclone pays all costs associated with the unit's return. There's absolutely no risk.

Mine will be here, tomorrow, from tracking info.

Let us know what you think about it! Once those leaves start to fall it would be nice to have good feedback on them. I'm interested in one myself but probably won't be getting one this year.
