My friend has a grass gobbler, its at my shop right now. He let me use it for one lawn, I liked it so Im going to copy the design and build one for myself. I can justify buying one for 250$ when I can make one out of 10$of steel tubing and mesh. Got alot of time to make it now that all the grass is brown. I'll post pictures when I'm done. By the way its a 4.4 cubic foot that im extending on mine to 5-5.5 cubic foot. and as for using it for leaves, go over them once then put the bagger on when the leaves are like confetti.
