    For the past couple of years I have just been using my mowers to do my leaf clean-ups. I'd blow out the beds and around the houses and then pick up the leaves with the mower. It works great but I have been thinking about a leaf vacuum that I can hook onto my truck and then just suck up the leaves out of one big pile. Does anyone use the leaf vacs? Which method do you prefer, leaf vac or mower? Thanks for your input.

    I used a Billy Goat HTR 1600 16hp B&S V-twin for 3 years for leaf clean-ups, I ran Scags/mulched grass & leafs for the rest of the season. Since our Walker purchase I have sold the Billy Goat & Scags, and reduced our overhead & labor cost with a Walker mower. One Mower does it all

    After using both Leaf Vacuum & the Walker, hands down the Walker is the least labor intensive less blowing with the Walker.
