    I don't. I'm in the fortunate situation where the wind takes care of it. No nieghbors for a quarter mile. As a kid I had to rake the dam things, load em onto an old bedspread and haul up into the woods. Was just such a foolish waste of time. The wind would blow the nextdoor guys leaves back into our yard.

    I just lawn mowed them and let them compost in place. Don't just let them lay. I used to have a couple of maples and when the leaves dropped they'd be knee high walking through them, then I'd run a lawn mower and that sucker'd be spitting out a solid stream of leaf bits. Then rake it out all nice and even. Easy on me and good for the yard. I had some s**t hot grass then.

    A vintage Woods vacuum but modified to handle a 72" deck: 12" hose, bigger motor, reversed intake side. Runing behind a JD 935 front mower. Leaves, branches, hickory nuts, walnuts, horse poop, dog poop, a few bricks once in a while from driveway edging, a glove once and grass clippings.

    Got this DR leaf vacuum for Mom's yard a few years ago. Does a good job if you want to get the leaves off the grass or don't mulch with the mower. I don't need it any more for Mon's yard she got rid of some trees from wind damage. My yard is too small for this so if anyone wants this for half of what it cost me PM me.
