    ED--that was my question...was it basically a hay bailer. my farmer cousins bale hay that way.

    municipal worker are the worst to complain about too much work and not enough work...usually in the same sentence.

    Awesome..Around here everyone blows the leaves to the curb then the city comes by pulling these big leaf vac trailers and sucks them up. they hold a lot but its a slow process.

    From where I sit, thats a pretty neat tool to use, and its effective too, if you think about it, its less expensive to do this because they're moving quicker and clearing more leaves per hour than a leaf vac could pick up.

    We used to put ours out on the street and the county would come and pick them up. We used to have the best times in the piles. When have 10 foot tall forts and stuff it was awesome we'd have tennis ball fights across the street and then as we got older it became a "foam pit" and wed fly off jumps and do flips and land in them its was soo much fun.

    my only question is is on the baler is there a different collection area like for haye it is thin metal rods that spin the hay into the machine but i would think the leaves would fall through
