    Just received the DVD from Cyclone Rake and it looks pretty good, Just want to know from the people who use them if they work as well as they look on the DVD? I would consider the top model. Any input would be great. Also do you know the price with all the accessories? They dont tell you in the video.

    I bought one last season. Worked well. I got the Platinum Pro one with the 7hp motor. It has a few small problems, but overall does a great job.

    I just used my Cyclone Rake Commercial Pro for the first time and was very impressed with it! It really sucks up and mulches like they say. I tow mine with an iz5223 Husqvarna ztr and it's like driving an oversized yellow school bus. You have to be careful 'cause the length could get you into trouble a few times. For ztr hookups, you'll want to be careful not to fly the cart around doing zero turns too hard or you may overstess the 2 point hitch and/or damage the collector unit. Just use common sense and you'll be fine.

    Get one, they're worth it!

    UPDATE......I hooked mine up yesterday and got up a few leaves, I love it, kinda long and a lil awkward, but it really works great, I think its going to be money well spent

    A 61" Lazer? You better hold on to that, because those are rare! :laugh: :)

    I've had my CR for just under 1 year. This is the first full "leaf season" i've used it, and it is wonderful! I pull it with a Kubota B7500. Just keep in mind the extra length behind you, and you'll be fine. Also, keep small animals and kids away from the intake. :) It's THAT powerful.
