Wondering what recommendations are out there for a garden tractor with a vacuum system to pick up lawn debris to the spring including pine cones, and leaves in the fall. Commercial quality is OK. Any with a shredder option? Thanks.

The ones I see are all standalone models that must be adapted by the owner to fit their specific tractor discharge.

I think John Deere once offered a kit/combo - but it wasn't cheap.

heck, NONE of them are inexpensive!!!!

Thanks, Iím thinking of helping my son start up a spring/ fall yard cleaning business, but we havenít put any economics to paper yet. Lotís of acreages with treed lawns around here.

It depends on your clientele's disposable income, but it can be GREAT!

A friend of mine in Fargo, ND has an all-seasons lawn care (snow removal in the winter) - there are some days when he puts in LONG hours to meet demands, but other days he has plenty of time to play.

He just bought himself a nice newer Jaguar!

I've owned a Cyclone Rake for about 15 years. A little pricey, but great quality and well built. I can mow/vacuum my 1 1/2 acre in less than 2 hours and have compost in the spring.
