    What are most people using to pick up leaves. Do the mulching blades do a good job.

    My Walker mower is Exellent at fall clean-ups and being from Maine we have lots of leaves and the Walkers are great and time savers.

    I use a Grasshopper with a bagger attatchment. It works quite well. I do require on site dumping.

    As there are only a few on the ground around here right now i am just mowing over them. Soon though i will be using the "LEAF PLOW" put out by JRCO. I am not sure how it is gonna work, but i was impressed with the homeade demo done by the company. This thing can move ALOT of leaves. But, i have not used it to date so dont take my post TOO serious just yet.

    I use 2 Toros 1 52 with track/vac and gator blades
    1 62 with trac/vac and gator blades
    seems to be working just fine we always blow as much off first with the goats and pack blowers,to save alot of work

    My blue walker is ready i'll switch to the ghs deck and suck them right up..mulch does ok but its much faster and cleaner look when i do removal in the winter.I'll blow out the beds and the edges first then it's suction time and hey I can fit though those 44" gates,and if i take 4mins to pull an put on the deck i can fit though a 40" gate sorry but my D.C goes in for the winter.

    I was using a 21" WB to bag them. I got a chipper shredder with a vac hose for $0. I'm rigging up something on a 4x8 trailer with 3' sides to haul them away. If it doesn't work, I'll get a truck loader.
