Gum Tree Pod Cleanup

I've got a 3 acre tree'd (mainly gum trees) lot and each year the clean up of gum tree pods is a real headache.....

right now using a large backpack blower then raking into piles and pick up with a hose on a trac vac.

Anyone have a better idea (cut the tress down not an option). Has anyone used a push behind leaf blower with any success....

Open to suggestions

Thanks

I have a BR 600 BP. It move them but it takes time. I had a 1/4 acre customer with one large gum ball tree. One of my earlier customers.

What I have learned is that you have to charge more money on jobs with gum ball trees.

These work pretty well, especially on a large property. http://www.edneyco.com/estate-yard-rake
