    It's about that time again guys :blob4: woo-hoo!
    Post pics/descriptions of yours.

    Here's my three most important tools:
    3/4 ton truck with 2' side and front extensions
    52" eXmark and vac bagger with two 33 gallon hoppers
    Kawasaki backpack blower

    Proposed Modus Operandi:
    Blow out beds, around trees, drives and walks, patios etc. with blower.
    Line the vac bagger's hoppers with trash bags, mow and vac all leaves thus bagging them, or if leaves are heavy, mulch first then bag, then when bags are full leave them in yard and replace, keep going. When done, collect all bags and throw in back of truck. When truck is full, take home and empty bags in the garden for a compost pile.
    Second option: blow into piles and tarp to curb for city to pickup, then mow and bag lawn for a clean cut and that hoover look.

    Post your rig pics and description and plan of attack for the 2003 season leaf "harvest" :D

    My rig is still being built so far its a 7X14 dump trailer with 6 foot sides. A billygoat leaf loader on the back. As far as blowers there is 2 backpack blowers and 1 push blower.

    SWEET SETUP ERIC!!!

    You might want to aquire another bp blower as a backup or if you need a helper. It always good to have a backup on those things, you never know when they wanna play tricks.
