Welp, the leaf harvest is in full swing here at "The Buzzard's Roost", so I thought I'd give old Cloudburst III and the EZ-Vac a try. Gotta say, I was impressed. That EZ-Vac sure wasn't leaving much, if anything, behind.

As you can see. the yield is high, and the moisture content low :smile1:

Didn't do a bad job at all. The mower deck needs a good going over, and probably needs new blades. There is some pretty tall grass hidden under those leaves which stalled me out there at the beginning. Plus the engine wasn't warmed up real well either.

That does a great job. Thanks for the video. My tree is getting big enough, I might have some leaves to rake this year. Going to check with some of the neighbors for some to put on the garden when I get it plowed.

looks like it works good, I hope my home made leaf vac works that good. Leafs are really coming down fast and there are still a ton in the tress.

I definately need to get or make one of those. That looks like a very handy tool for some seat time.
