I own / mow a little over 3 acres and every time the wind blows the yard is covered in sticks. We are looking for an attachment for our John Deere 4010 that would allow us to mow over the sticks and suck them up. We are considering a trac vac but were wondering if they deal well with this issue before we spend close to $2000 on one. I am not talking about limbs or branches, mostly 1/2 inch or less diameter sticks, the bigger ones I can pick up by hand. Thanks for any input!
