leaf Vaccuum Recomendations?

Hello everyone,

I just started a small lawn care service and am already thinking about the fall. I would like to start saving for a leaf vacuum system but am looking for recommendations on what to purchase. I have seen walk behind and tow models in all ranges.

What do you all use and what have you learned that you would do differently.

We had some growing up - both a walk behind and what was basically a leaf blower with a bag on the back. They all broke... not because they were cheap products, but because all of the trees in the yard were either oak or walnut - and the acorns & walnuts that fell absolutely destroyed the impellers. If you can get one that can protect the impeller somehow from small debris (rocks, acorns, walnuts) they are a great time saver.
