    I couldn't resist. I am just havin a little fun here. But the first pic is before. Then i do 2 passes with a Wright Stander. !st pass is with a mulch plate on the discharge chute. 2nd pass with the chute open. Hope this dang things post right!! I still have not mastered the proper sizing of these things!!

    That looks real good.

    I can make one pass with my Walker, and get the same or better results, HOWEVER I have to find an onsite dump or haul them away. :rolleyes:

    Just goes to show there's more than one way to skin a cat.

    Good looking pics, what kind of camera?

    Just so I am on the same page as you.... You closed off the discharge on first pass. You opened up discharge on 2nd pass to blow the mulched leaves and spread them out or did you bag them on the second trip?
