    I've done this to reduce volume on leaves loaded into a bed already but why in the world would you do it with leaves on a lawn?

    Can't see it being more efficient than what a mower can do.

    It goes pretty fast if you got some power Echo 266T for example.

    Thanks Ed, I've got a couple of leaf jobs this week and I'm going to give it a try.

    I have used my trimmer to clear leaves away from fences, bushes, corners, etc. But I have never attacked a pile of leaves with it. I could plow through that pile with a mower and make it disappear in a couple minutes. I have tried everything else to make leaf removal easier so I too will give this a spin.

    Yes, we run second walker with catch deck and cut lawn shorter and this sucks up the mulched leaves and puts final cut on lawn.
