    We either blow them to the truck vac or suck them up with the Walkers. The truck vac is a life saver, so much more productive.

    A Ginat Vac 25HP Truck Loader, Giant Vac 8HP Push Blower, 2 Redmax 4300 Back Pack blowers, and a Trac Vac for My ZTR does the job very well.:D

    This year I'm using my Protro Catcher on the back of my Bob Cat ZTR. I can dump it from the seat. I can also put buckets in it so I don't have to dump it on the ground.....very nice.

    I also have a catcher for my walk behind.

    Next year if I can afford it I'm going to be getting the truck vac like normal landscapers, haha.
