    What is the name of the rake attachment that mounts to the front of a mower for pushing leaves? I thought it was a Jericho rake but can't find any info on it. Thanks guys!!!!

    It's called JRCO, and the unit for pushing leaves is there leaf plow. The website is www.jrcoinc.com

    Yes, the rake and the leaf plow are two different things. The rake does push some bulks of leaves, though.

    Used to use the plow every year. As long as you pay attention, (and the leaves aren't too wet) it works great! Make sure you know where you're plowing -- sprinker heads, other miscellaneous things in the yard, etc can get in the way really quick.

    I love my Jrco Leaf Plow. Cuts the time to collect leaves greatly. A blower can only blow so much. so I blow to a big line then push the line out to the street. you get windrows but you can go back and push the bulk off again, and keep blowin. Just bought a JRCO Tine Thatcher comes tomorrow so dont know how that works yet.

    i make my own folding version of how a leaf plow should be for myself and others. if you do a search on you you can find pictures of it. if not i can post pictures.
    i used to have a jrco one but hated it as it wouldn't work all that well and would bend if you hit a slight hard spot in the ground.
