    Have any of you used it for getting leaves?? Or are you planning to? I know they came down some on price...so Im curious to see if I should add it to my fall cleanup arsenal.

    Somewhat off topic........I have an accelerator that I use on my tiger cub.....it fills up in less than a minute. That was with the early leaf drop we had back in august.
    What I did was put a tarp down in the yard, and get the leaves up and dump them on the tarp and then dump the tarp when it got full or when I was done.That was better than picking up the leaves and then going to the truck or woods to dump every minute or two.

    I ordered my Samurai today with the aluminum catcher. I intend for it to backup my Tiger cub with the bagging system when it is wet, or too steep.

    I like the tarp Idea.

    mine works well...it fills quickly...but is super easy to dump....just do not try to dump it into a bag......
