    I know a fellow local lco that's had his for about 8 years. His works great and does a good job. He added a 5 star edger blade onto the fan to further chop up the leaves, since the Lesco does not have a shredder blade. I was thinking about the Lesco unit as well, but bought the big expensive LW.

    Tom could you possibly get a pic of the edger blade shredder? Is it balanced? If not it will shake apart and fly out and slaughter 11 kids on bicycles 100 yds away :dizzy: LOL sorry had to make fun of everyone who was knocking my leaf shredder device on my blower. Could you get the pic though? Thanks.

    Eric, in the new October Turf (the same issue with your scag plow) there's an ad with a picture of the "shredding talon" as they're calling it.

    Seems like it would do a good job as it's the first thing the leaves will hit when they come in, and it looks sharp like a knife.
