    Depends if you need to empty the mower 3-5 times then no big deal and I have a few that are that easy. But some of mine are surrounded by trees some have a few thousand and the leaves can be 4-8 inches deep on the ground before you start anything obviously emptying the trac vac 4 times in a pass would piss me off to much so in that case far easier to blow em then suck them up at the truck.

    Last year I used the wb and bagger, worked fairly well. This year I'll be doing the same, only with the ztr. Most of my customers I clear the leaves every week with the mow, so they generally don't get too thick.

    Pretty much the same as last year, we try to grind up as much as possible with the Stander, then run them through the truck loader. I am praying that we have a fall like last year, I was done a week before Christmas. My best finish ever.

    Last season we used a Little Wonder HPV (it did not like wet leaves at all!) this season we got our hands on a Little Wonder blower 13hp! and Echo backpack blowers they should do some damage. And we are only blowing to the curbs this year because we hooked up with a LLC that has a truck mount vac and dump truck. We obviously won't get all the $$ but its going to be a lot eaiser! :p

    Well, I did a search and found a thread called cleaning leaves with my meg mo's
    but found no pictures you refer to. As I was looking through the thread I realized, if you can't deal with a link, you probably can't handle pictures either.
    Did I misunderstand your reference to pictures?
