Can anyone please tell me a way to deal with wet leaves.
I use a kaw 700 and a lesco 8 hp walk behind blowers . When the pile gets to big off comes the lesco 48 and i push them where they need to go . This works good for me
I either use the walk behind blower or just suck them up with the mower. I really haven't had any major problem with wet leaves before. If they are really stuck to the ground in some areas I will go over and kick them up with my feet or the back pack blower
A lot of times when they are wet we will make piles in the driveway and push them down with our Great Dane.
I take mine home and let the wife put them in the clothes dryer for 45 minutes on Permanent Press!
Seriously though...I try to wait until they get a chance to dry out a little, but this is not always possible!
I usually blow them using my back pack blower to stir them up a bit and let them dry out a little while I moving around the property. For the ones really stuck, I have one of my sons pull them over using a rake.
I then run over them and pick them up with my Exmark Z Turn!
Sometimes you just can't avoid these suckers!!!
