I've been using the entry model Cyclone Rake and decided today that I need to upgrade to one that

1. requires less trips to the curb

2. has a large enough hoses to not get clogged by twigs and moist grass

3. Better more powerful motor

4. has a better deck adapter setup


They currently have a Z10 model that fits the bill that is currently offered at a 150.00 discount, but there has to be others. Any suggestions for an upgrade to marry up to the 1025r?
Thanks
Lou

If you are actually going to the curb and have to bag them, the John Deere 3-Bag MCS maybe a better choice.

I have the XL model for my LA135, and it works quite well. It holds a LOT of material. It is 8HP, I think the z10 is 10HP. Whatever you get, I would recommend the XL at a minimum. My buddy just bought one of the smaller ones, and it is a LOT smaller.

I have the Z10 attached to my 1025r. This is my second season with it. It does a great job. It has the 10" hose, which hasn't clogged on me yet. It hold 415 gallons, which I believe is just over double what you have now, so that should cut your trips in half. I definitely recommend you get the double wheel option.

For further info on the Z10, you can read the write up I did last year here:
