I was picking up leaves to day with my 52 inch wright stander. The leaves started to pile up over the mower and I kept going sucking um up, when holy **** there was a fire about 2 feet tall on the mower. The muffler is on the front of the mower and started the leaves on fire. It took me about 30 seconds to get the fire out, the whole time I was thinking that the gas tank is gonna blow. To anyone that has a mower with the muffler in front don't let the leaves pile up near it.
