    Just wondering how everyone does their clean ups. I have a Gravely 148Z and thinking about getting a JRCO front mount dethatcher with the OEM bagger for the Gravely. Other option is a tow behind lawn and leaf vac, like the agrifab, dr lawn vac, etc. Does anybody have other suggestions? What do you use and do you like it?

    A good Wb littler wonder blower is golden, we also use lots of backpacks and our bagger. Ive considered buying a billygoat vac for cleanups/parking lots but im not sure yet.

    I'm definitely getting the JRCO dethatcher and leaf plow for this fall. I also got an 18hp billy goat truck loader a few years ago. my goal is as little raking and tarping as possible.

    Good luck with the leaf plow because we had a new one and used it maybe 3 times. Ended up selling it because you could push more leaves with the mower deck then with that. That was one of the worst investments ever made.

    I would definitely recommend the JRCO rake. One of the best investments I've made.
