    What did you do with those piles after that? Do you have a leaf loader, or did You load them into a trailer by hand? I have got some big ones , but we just leave the leaves in the street for the city to pick up with loaders.

    Looks good! This is going to be a very late season. I'd say right now we have about half of the leaves down. Do you have any pics of your equipment? How well does the leaf plow work on a belt drive?

    Great pictures! What do you do with the leaves once they are on the curb?

    We can leave the leaves in the street. The town picks them up. There gonna have fun with these piles.

    The leaf plow works pretty good with the belt drive, but you can only push a big pile so far before it gets to big.

    Tomorrow i plan on taking some action shots of the crew and equipment

    Heres some old pics of plow
    We fabricated it out of a crapsman aerator mount for a tractor
