Gotta love the leaf plow. One of the best investments I made.

You couldn't be more wrong. Everything around here is wooded, including my own property. Every fall we get piles 3' deep and 30-35' long, 8-10' front to back, and we move them where we need them with two BP's. Most guys just move leaves into piles and then plow, or tarp them from there without ever taking the time to learn what to do or works best to keep a pile that size moving. We've learned some very efficient ways to keep moving them with the BP's when we have a place we can blow them to (like a gated compost area or woods at the back of the place etc) instead of having to tarp or plow them.

You would be even more efficient with a a Echo or Redmax.

It's like splitting hairs when comparing Redmax and stihl.

Your stihl is not close. If you had ever tried the husky/redmax you'd know this.
