    I have the dethatcher and think the concept is great and it works fairly well but it is so chincy. I had to make several modifications with it to improve it. The leaf plow looks like it would fold in half compared to the one I made.

    I have a practically new jrco leaf plow I am selling. I have it attached to my Exmark Lazer Z. I works great when trying to move piles of leaves that are past your knee's. They are over $400 new. Selling it for $250.

    How much would shipping be to ohio? Cleveland 44145 Does it clear up yards good or do u just blow leaves into a pile with a blower then push them into a street with this plow?

    It is basically used to push big piles of leaves. Cleveland is 3 1/2 hours from me. I would be willing to meet you half way.

    let me think about it. Do u have any pics? Are all the parts togther? Also why are u selling it? So with this plow, u cant clear up entire yards, u just blow leaves into piles and then push them into the street with this thing.

    I would have to agree with Scott. It looks a little on the light side to me. Leaf piles, especially with a little moisture in them, can be very heavy.

    Buy the plow for $250. awsome deal. I just paid $430 for mine with tax and freight. if your worried about the durability you could easily bolt on a couple pieces of flat stock and it would be fine. I haven't had any wet leave to move yet. I blow until they won't move any more than push them to the street or over a bank and then vac the lawn at the end. it saves a lot of tarping.

    I have pic's. They are posted under the market place here on lawnsite. Look under JRCO Leaf Plow. I have all the parts that go with it. The reason I am selling is I lost a big leaf account and really don't have much use for it.
