    With leaf season just around the corner I was wondering who all uses the jrco leaf plow. Do you guys like them? Are they worth the money? Thanks

    I have one and it works well as long as you don't really pile them up. All in all it is a good investment and we use it on a walkbehind.

    Mow Ed, what do you mean by pileing them up??? Do they start lifting the plow, do they go over the top. I was looking to get one for moving piles of leaves to my loader, not worth it???

    They have or had?? a video that was easy to load and see. It showed the plow on a lazer doing a great job. The only problem i have had with a walk is the speed, the lazer was faster.

    Its not the be all end all to leaf removal but it has its place for me. I have not tried it on a rider as I mulch everything down with the Walker but my wife uses the plow where it is easy to push the dry piles to the street. If they get too heavy the mower has a hard time pushing and eventually the pile breaks off and you have to come back to get it. It will ride up a little at times but all in all it is a timesaver for some of my bigger properties.
