    Does anyone use the Leaf Plow from jrco or have you made your own?

    I have heard good and bad things about it. I personally would like to try one out. I am getting sick of pushing leaves with the front of my mower

    From what I have seen, they do a pretty nice job.

    I run a jrco leaf plow there are some pictures on this thread i started. -> http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=124429

    I am happy with it, however I will be making a new mounting bracket for my mower. I've bent mine to hell with the "extreme" use i gave it in 2 days. The plow is still functional, just the mounting for my 260z is a little twisted up now, lol

    made my own

    Its not extremely sturdy, but i its kinda nice because when you hit something buried in the leaves, you dont ram yourself into the handle bars. Also it can just be bent back

    is that aluminum? Did you weld that yourself or have someone else do it?

    yes it is aluminum, but the rest is steet, the steel-aluminum connections are bolted on, and my dads company welded everything(alittle perk) and made the mounts
