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.


If you want the job done right......do it yourself.

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!!!!

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.
