I've been cutting down trees every year for the past 10 years. Firewood , anyone?
My dad has over 2 acres of hardwoods. He has the exact trac vac posted. By the time the mowerdeck mulches the leaves and then the impeller mulches them again and they are blown into the container they are compacted a ton. He has to unload fairly often, but unless your yard is 1,000 yards long, you'd be surprised how many passes you can make.

I live in an apartment. Mexicans make them disappear on a weekly basis. Magic!

exactly,

my yard is 100' by 300', and surrounded by trees, at the worst time in the fall, I will fill the container about 3 times in one cutting,

before I got this thing, I once bagged 30 leaf bags doing about half my yard before I gave up and raked what was left into the trees LOL
