    :dizzy: Just a question. Is it better to use the TT to mulch leaves and blow into a windrow or pile and then collect ? I just purchased a Cyclone Rake system and mounted it to our Gravely 16G tractor (a real workhorse). Just wondering if anyone does this and collects with the Cyclone Rake or is it just wasting time and fuel. It just seems that the Scag can get into tighter places better and quicker than the 16G and cyclone combo. Thanks.:usflag:

    We use a TT but have the clamshell bagger on the back so in that respect yes it is easier. One guy blows out the beds, nooks, & crannies, while one sucks them all up.

    Don't mulch the leaves too much. I use a toro 52 sfs w gaters one pass

    at 41/2" reduces the volume. I use a 48' Walker w meg-mo's. for the pu.

    3" setting on Walker. Ed

    Why not put the Cyclone rake on the Skag? It would save a whole step...a rather large time savings, actually.
