Pros: Good engine. Easy to assemble with the instructions.
Cons: Bad strain on tractor tow plate. Difficult to back up. Engine exhaust blows at driver.

Pros: Quality item, made in the USA. Fun to use.
Cons: Can't think of one.
Summary: Have had my Cyclone Rake, Mdl XL for over a year now, and I have to say, it is absolutely the best investment I've made in a while. I have not hand-raked ONE LEAF this season. I made it a point not to, just to see if the Cyclone Rake could handle it

Pros: It sucks up so well just like it should! even hard to rake twigs.
Cons: Heavy for shipping cost and storage.
Summary: After 9 years of use it keeps on running. With a few acres to mow and lots of leaves and grass to pick up, this vacuume really works. Just a word of advise, practice, practice, practice. The trailering caracteristics of the cyclone are reverse of your

Pros: great time and work saver if you have a large yard with lots of leaves.
Cons: replacement parts. Had to buy a kit of parts just to replace one.
Summary: Works great if set up properly, but watch out if the plastic impeller breaks. They won't sell you just a replacement impeller, you have to buy a kit that includes the whole blower housing and all attachments, no matter what shape your current housing is
