ZTR ruts & leaf vac question

I have a JD 717A and I am getting ruts where the mowing patterns can't be changed. Will aeration or rolling or anything else help this?

Also what is a good leaf mulcher/vac that is a decent step up from the cyclone units? Is there anything for 2-4k?I am going to leave them in the woods but something to pull behind my ATV w/trailer that would suck up,mulch and move leaf piles would be awesome. I have 3 acres of woods so the Billy Goat would take forever.

Thanks for the help...I don't have a lawn business but I wish I did. I am a lawn eqipment junky!

Peco vac or the Quik Vac system will probably work. As far as thew ruts go a roller will help along with aeration, also if you can't change directions just move the tires over one tire width, this "may" help. JMO, Good Luck
