    I'm starting the 2006 leaf cleanup thread...post all of your leaf cleanup and equipment pics here!

    I'll start it off with a few pics from doing a cleanup at my own house today. I am using a 10HP Little Wonder blower, Red Max EB 7001 BP blower, and a 5HP Troy Bilt leaf vacum (to load and grind leaves up into my trailer). The little vac works pretty well for leaf-loading...takes a little while but I can get a lot more leaves into my trailer with it!
    Here's the pics:

    Hey Matt Good Looking Stuff! I was just wondering , i just bought the STIHL BR 550 back pack blower and love it and right now doing leaves i pile them up and tarp them into my bros s-10 and trailer and im building sides this weekend for the trailer bc im finishing cutting this week and wont need the width for the Z, i was wondering if u find urself when not grinding leaves filling ur trailer quickly, i want to get the two bin bagger for the Z but may wait but then they would be grinded with gator blades and would take up less space, what do u do and do u find urself filling ur trailer full quickly? Thanks! -Mitch-

    Thanks guys! Redmaxman- the halfpipe is my brothers, I can't skateboard to save myself LOL!:hammerhead:
    Dreamcut- I used to (before I got the Troy Bilt, which was free BTW), just dump the leaves "raw" into the trailer nad walk in them to pack them down...I have found I can get 2-3 times more leaves into each load by grinding them up through the Troy-Bilt first.
    Fearthisdeere- YES, we still have trees in NJ, and a LOT of trees by me!:weightlifter: :)

    Thanks again,
    Matt
