Bought mine years ago but I think I ordered from Landscaper Pro for around $550. The mount/s are around $100. Only a few places had them online and none local so I went with the best online price. I remember an oversized shipping fee, also.

Great investment. Wouldn't be without one. Saves a ton of time.

Leaf plows are great but why not just make your own?

I run a Walker and I own the de-thatcher attachment.

I was considering fab-ing up something that I can add on to it to make it a plow....

Something that I can put on and take off I guess...

I don't weld aluminum or I would. Even with it being aluminum, its heavy.

Before leaf plows. the mexicans just lowered the decks on ZTRs and rammed the piles to push them where they wanted to go…. honestly it works pretty dang good.

The leaf plow works better with dry fluffy leaves, but gets bent/damaged easily pushing around heavy wet ones.

how many days of dry fluffy leaves do you all deal with?

Certainly doesnt work as well without the plow.

We have almost zero days of moving dry fluffy leaves in the northeast from October to December. Set it up right and the plow will push all the wet icy leaves one wants to plow whether it be mounted to a ztr or a hydro wb, without being bent/damaged.
