    Before I get yelled at I have done a search I did not find the info I was looking for.

    I have a Toro 62" 23 hp Z-Master. I have been beating myself in the head trying to figure out whether to buy a DFS Vac or a mulching kit for leave clean ups. I already have business lined up for the fall. I would rather use the mulching kit but I am curious as to how well this will do on large amounts of leaves. I am talking about leaves 12", 16", 20" deep!

    For those of you who use a Toro mulching kit, will it tackle this kind of work?

    For those of you who use a Toro DFS Vac, will my Kohler 23hp be enough engine to handle this thing?

    Some people I have talked to seem to think that they will have too many leaves for a mulching kit. They are also worried about that many leaves, even mulched, being put back down on their yard.

    Any comments will be appreciated.

    The vac will do a much CLEANER job - yes, the Kohler can handle it with ease
