    i know the right thing to buy would be a truck mounted leaf vac but being my first year i cant afford one. if i were to buy an echo leaf shredder and have a hose going down into a trashcan do you think this would work? my truck is packed full after 1 yard and i figure i could at least cut down leafs to half their size if not more. do you think this would be time efficient? thanks

    NO. It sounds like a waste of time & $$

    No don't waste money on that vac.....take your biggest mower put a plate over the outlet and mulch the leaves. Then if you need to pick them up take your bagger machine and pick them up. That will reduce the density.
