Geez, that last pict looks like that thing sucked the grass off the ground. :dunno:

No, that's part of the deer trail that cuts through my property. Over my right shoulder is my trail to the back where I dump the leaves. Great compost come Spring!

I have to admit that the combination that I have is really great! My wife thought that I should get a smaller CR model but I can fill the XL bag four times in two hours. I just wish that I had a 522 or 523 with power steering for dodging the trees. You can't beat the cut-in angle on the 5xi series.

I was just kidding you John about the power of your vac. :wh: That tractor of yours looks like a monster, guess I didn't realize they got that big. :dunno: Looks a bit beefier than my ol' 520. :help:

:wh: I knew that you were kidding. By the way, I use to own a '75 Hornet Sportabout, complete with genuine-imitation Wood Paneled sides. That 258 was a tough engine. But when I got my '78 CJ-7, I bought it with the 304. Now that was a strong engine! :dunno:

Funny! Our Sportabout was '76, and the CJ was a last year, '86 model.

I finished mine today. Folded up the Cyclone Rake, hung it on the wall of the shed, rolled the engine into the corner, and parked the John Deere :dunno: for the winter.

And John, you are right about the composting leaf piles. The Cylcone Rake chops them so fine that come spring, I got the best black dirt in the neighborhood. Never have to buy the bagged stuff.

I see great minds think alike, we both had matched sets. :dunno:
