I am a new member with a John Deere X500. I have been using for mowing and have used a Powerflow the last 2 years for leaves (plenty here to pick up). I just recently installed a 48" front blade for snow plowing.
We have a little over nine acres and mow about 2 acres in Central Illinois. With all the 40-50 ft trees we have huge quantities of leaves each year. Even with a powerflow and a cart this can be a mulit-day effort.
