When it comes to picking up leaves what do most of you guys do? Bagger on the ZTR, walk behind, rake or blow onto a tarp? Where I live there is no fee to dump yard waste, we have a compost pile on the edge of town.

Myself, I do one of the two below...

1. Blow to tarp, rake onto tarp, drag to wherever, dump.

2. Blow to curb for pickup.


Occasionally, I'll take them with me, but a 5x8 trailer doesn't hold as much as you'd think. I try to stick to smaller jobs, or jobs where the city will pick up at the curb. (Piles, not bagged - bagging takes forever)


Here's a thread I posted in the fall with tons of pics.

Oddly enough, I just did a "fall cleanup" at this SAME property yesterday.
There were leaves and tons of debris (bark) from a few sycamore trees that needed removed. Fall cleanup in July!
