    the stander looks really cool with the lights on it. Do you get pretty dusty mulching leaves on that thing though??

    Using the Stander pictured with discharge chute cutoff plate on for the fronts and an Exmark Metro with much kit for the backs, one set of high lift Gators (would prefer regular lift for less blow out, but everyone is sold out) . Just me and a helper, done in two passes and maybe a third if there was a little windrow in a few areas after the second pass. Maybe took an extra 25 minutes between the both houses and that includes taking the time to blow up the curbs and walks/drive prior to mulching and the mulching time. I would break that down into an extra 5 minutes per house to blow first and 7 1/2 minutes per for mulching. The blowing would have to be done either way, and you could easily use an extra 5-7 minutes or so for dumping the catchers and loading the barrels into the truck, but this way I don't have to take the time or have the added expense of going to the dump. I think they look pretty good ... honestly.

    Oh, and NO - I really don't get too dusty on the Stander, if they were a bit heavier and it was a little gusty, maybe, but never a bad ordeal with dust.

    Does look good. Only qualm I have is that 90% of the leaves are still in the trees. Show us some before and after pics when the leaves are 12 inches deep.
