Mower w/bagger? Walk-behind vacuum? blower w/vac?
Not to sound generic, but it really depends on what equipment you have available and the conditions. For the most part, a wb vacuum is NOT the way to go. Sometimes a wb blower is more efficient, sometimes a mower itself moves the material faster and more efficiently (windrowing).
gas and matches
chainsaw....just cut the trees down an be done with it.
I just blow them into the neighbor's yard and be done with it.
we use a backback sprayer to put a SMALL amount of gas on all of them and then lite them. the leaves burn and are gone before the grass even gets hot. you MUST do this when the leaves are dry though or they will smoke to much when wet. it will take you a time or two before you get the amount of gas to spray right.
Thanks, Corey. What brand of chainsaw do you recommend?
THere's only one...STIHL
You just can't beat the quality provided by hand work. Just pick them up, one by one, and place each leaf in your pickup. Drive real fast through another neighborhood to disperse the leaves.
Am I allowed to pick up more than one before I walk to the truck, or am I getting too greedy?
Propane flame thrower, less smell, much faster and slightly less dangerous.
