    regarding useing the leaf plow. Friend of mine bought a leaf plow i and i bought a leaf loader. We will be teaming up and doing leaves together as one. How low do you guys have the leaf plows set? tines on ground or off?

    You'll want the tines to be not in contact with the ground, but to be going through the grass, like a comb. You'll still need a leaf blower to get the lawn completely clean, as the leaf plows are designed to move large amounts of leaves, like piles.

    Leaf plows are worthless if you don't have big piles to move. Just my two cents!
