he Cyclone by far. Look at storage, the prop system, and a whole host of other things.

Mike, Are you referring to the CYCLONE RAKE? I have a Cyclone Rake Commercial Pro. What shredder and mulcher kit do you mean?

the cyclone tow behind bagger system. most of the brands of mower offer a type of mulching system. my machine offers mulching kit but special "Eliminator" blades can be put on and a leaf shredder kit can be applied.

If this helps you any, I had the DR Leaf Vac. I sent the thing back because it was junk. I now have the CR Pro and love it. Much better then the DR.

What did you not actually like about the dr leaf vac when you say it is junk.

I have the cyclone rake commercial pro with the estate hoses. I love it.
The hoses are great for cleaning out flower/mulch beds and perfect for vacuuming out leaves embedded in ivy. Be careful though it will remove the mulch and take you straight to removing soil. Very powerful...

The cyclone works well being towed behind the lawn tractor as well.

I did a cleanup last week...53 bags of leaves....1 man, 1 day...$360.00
Could not have done it without the CR.

I did this work in a neighborhood I have not advertised in. From that yard cleanup I have received 2 lawn contracts and request for 2 additional clean up quotes.
