LEAVES!!! this is the time of the year when all forms of leaf removal come into play. From the big trucks that haul away massive amounts of leaves to the poor guy who still uses a rake . I ,once again , sing the praises of LEAF GRINDING. http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=124596&highlight=blow+baffle&page=2 http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=125671&highlight=leaf+grinding these are just 2 threads about the antiblow out baffle I use and the leaf grinding method. Mostly I wish to again thank the memory of Eric ELM for turning me on to this method some 12 years ago and I pass on his knowledge for others to use or abuse. I just outfitted my toro 36" for the new season and now have a new toy to add to the leaf game. I use my new lazer to aim the leaves into a pile and just grind them up with the 36" toro with the mulch kit and anti blow out baffle.
