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.
