    Here are some pictures. We did this one a couple weekends ago. The truck with the leaf loader is my friend's

    Me doing the finish cut:
    Sucking up the pile. The person standing is my helper.

    This is a nice setup and you did an excellant job. It still puzzles me why you guys don't simply mulch the leaves on one pass then use a simple bagger on the second pass? Do you think it takes longer to mulch/bag them?

    I started the job by blowing around the edges of the property and places i couldn't reach with the mower, then mowed the lawn without the catcher just shredded the leaves, then mowed with the catcher and sucked up all the shredded leaves and finish by mowing perpendicular to before without the catcher so there would be some nice stripes left.

    I love the sign on the mower. Your the first person I have ever seen do that. And that's a pretty nice leaf rig, you must be glad to have access to that, huh...

    P.S.-how long did it take you to load that pile to the truck?

    Peabody has a sweet leaf truck. It's huge. Everything looks great from the pics. Do you make any money when he helps you do the cleanups?
