fall cleanup ZTR-blower reccomendation

hello all,
wanted to sugguest the setup i use. it is extremely efficient and will pay for its self the first year. you need a ZTR for this. i posted this last year and doing so again this year for anyone who missed it.

i bougth this last year, its a giant vac 16z blower. its listed on their web site and is meant to be mounted off of a bar on the front of the mower similar to a weight bar. it was horrible up front and blew the opposite direction as the deck. so i mounted it off the rear of the ZTR. i simply cut the grass, which picks up all the leaves out of the grass in the process, depositing them out the discharge, right where the blower comes and cleans the next pass. it saves a great deal of time. i blow them to the edge of the lawn, chop them up with the mower, then blow them into the woods. you dont even see them.

i thought i had better pictures of it but guess i deleted them, ill try to take more soon and post them. the blower was around $3K but i think it was worth it. happy to answer ?'s when im on.
