Leaf Me Alone!

Postby Barnyard » Wed Nov 08, 2023 4:15 pm

Needed to clean up several piles of leaves. Since I never had a mower to hook the leaf vac to, I just put a Cub to use and pulled it around to the piles. I guess I need a rear discharge mower for a Cub.

That vac looks like it would do the job. If you run out of leaves, I have plenty :D

Yeah, I think the whole idea behind the leaf vac is it's supposed to be attached to a tractor mounted mower deck!! :lol: I think you need to get in touch with Kevin and see how one of those green works and get one for yourself! :lol: :-:-):

I just mulch mine to shreds with the garden tractor/mower. Took 2 hrs for the back and 2 hrs the next day for the front. No collecting and nothing to dispose of.

Rick, I originally pulled it behind my Kubota tractor that had a mower deck so I could mower and vac simultaneously. Since buying my Z-turn I no longer have a deck on the Kubota because it is used exclusively as a loader/forklift. Eventually I will add a mower back into the mix.

I've tried it both ways, used to own a AGFAB unit with a 5 hp engine/blower with a radial fan mounted on the tongue and pulled by a lawn tractor, blower suction connected to mower deck. Looked a lot like Bill's rig. Disposal was a problem since most of my leaves were pecan and a huge bulk. Shredding works better for me especially since I covered the mower discharge opening and get a better chop/mulch. :D JMHO Stan

Yes, the only problem I had was I mounted a set of mulching blades and they chopped it so fine there was dust everywhere including the deck vents, me, and even the engine compartment so I went back to conventional blades. They work great, it just takes a bit longer requiring more passes.

I originally posted this to show one of the many uses of a Cub snce it is in the Cub forum. However, now that the topic seems to center on leaf mulching, I may have to move my post to the off topic forum. :lol:

I got one of them green things as a grass cutter.....paid more for the baggin stuff than the tractor.......works great!!!!! be ready to empty it a lot.... and the smoke from the fires is fun also....neighbors will love you......I really bought it to catch grass for the garden in the summer....but that being said....mulched leaves in the garden will be a nice additive!!!!!!

Kevin, I have no plans to add a bagger to the mix.
