Spring/Fall lawn clean ups

Just wondering how everyone does their clean ups. I have a Gravely 148Z and thinking about getting a JRCO front mount dethatcher with the OEM bagger for the Gravely. Other option is a tow behind lawn and leaf vac, like the agrifab, dr lawn vac, etc. Does anybody have other suggestions? What do you use and do you like it?

I'm definitely getting the JRCO dethatcher and leaf plow for this fall. I also got an 18hp billy goat truck loader a few years ago. my goal is as little raking and tarping as possible.

Good luck with the leaf plow because we had a new one and used it maybe 3 times. Ended up selling it because you could push more leaves with the mower deck then with that. That was one of the worst investments ever made.

That sucks, was looking forward to that. Anyone else have this issue? Maybe i'll just fab. one instead.
