I am becoming interested in an estate rake for raking leaves. Anyone know anything about them?

Looks like a miniature hay rake.

I haven't used the small rake like in the video but Have used the small wheel rake and it does a Great job.

Both of those are interesting - small enough for the Cub. I think that McCormick makes a couple of side delivery rakes that are Cub size. I think Phil Lenke restored one for use behind his Cub. Here is the thread - Making Hay With My Cub

If you have a typical riding lawn mower just mow in a circle and blow the leaf debris into the middle and pick it up for removal when it's in a small pile.

Bob:

Depends on how much acreage you have. A ride-on tractor with a mower deck and grass bags/buckets would be ideal. With the high lift blades not only will the leaves get almost mulched but very little will be left after the first pass. I liked my Craftsman because of the grass catcher. Sure was nice, kinda miss it. However, if you want to use your Cub I would suggest you have a look at this thread: Cheap and Dirty Lawn Rake along with Rick's other ideas for Cheap and Dirty Implements.
