    I own one and i love it. It sure beats the blowers and tarps. The only thing i would suggest is getting te commercial models for te capacity difference. I have the standard one and it works in the rain, with leaves frozen to te ground. Yesterday we blew out the landscape beds and ad piles 2' tall- went through them with the mower at full speed and it sucked um right up.

    Cooper - full speed??????? What kind of mower do you have it on anyway and how fast is full speed??? On the cyclone rake demo video they show the lawn tractor (about 42") going only a couple mph which would be alot of leaves for what they were showing was like in a forest during leaf season!

    bhb- im using a jd gt 225- i believe the full speed is between 6 and 6.5 mph . the difference between what i do and what the video does is when going through piles i lift my deck up as high as i can. it gets rid of the pile and leave only little scraps which can be fixed with a quick runover
