    Do you mean leaf vacs, like walk behinds or leaf loader (debris) loaders? Either way look up www.billygoat.com

    i am a first year one man operation. i bought a cyclone rake. i am just getting it set up. i live in south mississippi and leaves are just now falling. i am happy with the way the cyclone rake set up as far as mounting on my mower, and can use it to load and unload trailer. also it folds up where i can haul everything. the motor was easy to mount on my trailer so i can do curb side pick-up. hope to get a chance to try it soon. i may try on some old grass clippings just to see how it works. it did take awhile to get my cyclone rake. you must order direct which is good and bad.

    Yeah,... we're talking about two different things, here.
    What do you want, a Vac for your mower, - or a vac to put the leafpiles into your truck?
