    We just got one at work, and this thing has been impressive so far. I work for a small company and its just two of us, so anything that makes are job easier is a plus.And this does that. We got done a leaf clean-up that takes us about an 2 hrs in 1 and a half. I think this is the best piece of equipment we got this year.

    Its mounted on a Great Dane Chariot 61 in, and its either 25 or 29 horsepower. That machine as no problem pushing 6 ft worth of leaves.

    The only thing it didn't come with is a cord to pull the plow up, but that was an easy fix.

    I have been using one for 3 seasons. The thing is amazing. Huge time saver. I have it on a 23HP ZTR, and it can push huge piles.

    It mounts up by the front wheels, we are actually changing the mounting system today. The brackets been coming loose on us, so we are going to cut it down to size, and mb put a few welds on it. And the bracket really doesn't look that bad either.

    those things are awesome. my only complaint is that the pile seems to get real dense. makes a little extra work when you suck them up. when those leaves get wet and you plow them up they turn to concrete.

    yep, thats the point. the plow has little tines on the bottom that rake while you plow.

    It is great. I reinforced mine with additional bracing because we push a lot of leaves with it. We are often sucking up 130yds of leaves a day and using the jrco plow to move the leaves to the curb for the truck vac. It is great for pushing to the wood line too, then just use backpacks to disperse the piles.
