    Hey guys,

    My brother and I were trying to find a more efficient way to collect leaves.
    The current method is using the two Stihl backpack blowers and blowing the leaves to the curb for pick up. Some areas we have to haul away the leaves.
    I was wondering if any of you have placed a bagger on your mowers to collect leaves instead of blowing. I was wondering if this method would be quicker than blowing the leaves? Then we would load up the clippings in the back of the truck and then dump once a week at the local yard waste site. Let me know if you have any questions.

    I'm tired of leaf jobs but still have to do it. For Jobs where you have to haul away yourself, the best way that I do it is to mow or blow all to one end and then bag it up with your mower. or rake it on a tarp and drag it up to trailer. Everybody do it differently. I like the mow everything to one side that way there won't be much to pick or rake up. Hope this Help, Good luck
