A peco vac on My Ztr would reduce the amount of leaves but would not eliminate the need to blow the entire lawn. Most of my accounts have tons of Oak trees wich means there are egg corns galore......Mowers dont have that much suction to pick up egg corns!

No, actually I did just fine. I have done enough fall cleanups over the years to judge a job pretty dam good. I also went extra high on the price this time......The last landscaper quit because of the leaves in the fall.......Not fun pulling 18 tarp loads of leaves through a 36 inch gate!

leaves

i thought with doubles on the toro and mulching then bagging i wouldnt have to start fall cleanups so early(no wonder all other companies have trac vacs and dumps with leaf loaders). i did this small lawn today. it has been exactly 1 week since it was mowed last and all the beds and bushes were blown out and the gutter cleaned. also the city swept this street for an unknown reason yesterday and look at how many leaves. i cant mulch the front becuase the lawn is thin due to a large tree over most of it. the back i tried but it was too much so here is a pic of most of the leaves from the yard. small yard too not a 1/2 acre more like a 1/6 or less acre.
