    he Cyclone by far. Look at storage, the prop system, and a whole host of other things.

    the cyclone will put less strain on your hydros, i was thinking about one, but the leaf shreder and mulcher kit is only like $210

    Mike, Are you referring to the CYCLONE RAKE? I have a Cyclone Rake Commercial Pro. What shredder and mulcher kit do you mean?:confused:

    If this helps you any, I had the DR Leaf Vac. I sent the thing back because it was junk. I now have the CR Pro and love it. Much better then the DR.

    What did you not actually like about the dr leaf vac when you say it is junk.

    I have the cyclone rake commercial pro with the estate hoses. I love it.
    The hoses are great for cleaning out flower/mulch beds and perfect for vacuuming out leaves embedded in ivy. Be careful though it will remove the mulch and take you straight to removing soil. Very powerful...

    The cyclone works well being towed behind the lawn tractor as well.

    I did a cleanup last week...53 bags of leaves....1 man, 1 day...$360.00
    Could not have done it without the CR.

    I did this work in a neighborhood I have not advertised in. From that yard cleanup I have received 2 lawn contracts and request for 2 additional clean up quotes.

    Joe
