    So our house has about 10 gum trees in the back. I would like to cut a few down, suck up the the little spikey seed things it drops, do a core aeration and do an overseed.

    Now, my question is this; I hate those freakin little spikey ball things. If I get a bagger attachment for my Toro, will it be able to suck them up, or would I have to rent a lawn vacuum?

    Very few will make it past the blades...so a lawn vac will be needed.

    Or, use a blower to round them up - then rake them onto a tarp or into a container for disposal.
