Hi Marc.
This is your lucky day. I have seen the JRCO leaf plow in action, and it does what it is
designed for . And gets the job done quickly if you have to move a large volume of leaves. So I bought one last year. But before I even got to use it, my son let me use
his Cyclone Rake from Woodland Power Products. And my JRCO leaf plow never got used. I also bought the JRCO Electric Broadcast Spreader at the same time that I got the leaf plow. I have decided to cut back on my working hrs. ( just turned 76 ) So I have
put both JRCO leaf plow ( NEW ) and the Elec. Broadcast Spreader ( used 1 season about 30 Hrs. ) up for sale on consignment at my Kubota dealer in NH.
Reply for more detailed information. I paid $ 1,700.00 for both , and a reasonable
offer would be considered.

thanks kabota for the info, how much would you be willing to sell just the leaf plow? i talked to a fellow CT landscaper today about one and he said that they were great if you have to move alot of leaves fast so i am definitely going buy one and would be willing to drive to NH if the price was reasonable.

Thanks, Marc

I have the jrco plow. Well worth the cost. As soon as the leaf piles get too large for the blowers to move quickly, we fire up the plow. It just pushes the pile along with no problem. Most of my cleanups get dumped on site, so I just plow the leaves into the woods.

Yeah it leaves a lil bit of a mess but MOST of the leaves will be where you push them to....

What we do is make a line of leaves or a pile then lower our JD Quicktrak's Deck and just push them like that....It does the same thing a leaf plow does...
Only difference is the leaf plow Blocks the leaves from getting in between the deck and pulley systems


All we do is just every once and a while blowout all the leaves from under it deck
Save your money

It does not plow a clean path. Many leaves are still left. But a backpack following does the trick. Believe me, it is very good, very fast, worth the cash.

Hello again Marc.
I see from your Equipment list that you have a JRCO De-Thatcher. So that way you could
attach My NEW JRCO Model # 480 Leaf Rake to your Existing Mount Bar.
Otherwise you would have to get a Mount Bar from JRCO, because I am keeping mine
whenever I will be using my JRCO 470 HD Tine Rake in the future.
I paid $ 439.00 for my Leaf Rake and picked it from the Dealer all set and ready to use. It is in prestine
and new condition. And it can be yours for $ 300.00 Cash if You P/U in Keene NH
OR I can bring it down 1/2 way say Hartford area on 91 for $ 350.00 Cash
Hopefully I have given you enough info to help you make a decision.
If so let me know and we can finalize the transaction details.
Good Luck
bobby j

hey bobby j, i am interested in buying the leaf plow weather i have to buy a new mount bar or not. i have the older style mounting bar and i don't know what style you have but if i have to buy a new mount, so be it. it would be great if we met half way because i have an older truck and it is horrible on the highway. if you could give me a week or so because i am really busy i have to time this week and if we could swap numbers and talk more about it it would be great.

Thanks alot booby j

Marc
