    This is my second yer in buisness. 98% of my accounts are curb pick up (blow leaves to the rd and the town picks them up) I was thinking about getting either a DR vacuum or the Cyclone rake.......has anyone used them or know any good or bads about either? I am running a 52" toro with a 19hp kawi. It just take a long time to blow back yards out to the road......Thanks guys

    Tarp them up and pull it with a lawn tractor to the street.

    I have a leaf vacuum Cub Cadet commercial 9hp that we use on small yards where burning isn't aloud and it works pretty good for us. Whatever brand you get make sure it has the hose attachment there great for sucking out leaves out of well curbs and stairwells, mine has a 12' long 6" diameter hose. There handy when the need arises but 90% of the time Echo's 755s, rakes and tarps work best.
