Double mowing up the leaves

Q&A

I wholeheartedly confirm Dennis’ advice about double mowing to pick up leaves. Mow once and then a second time with a bag to collected the leaf fragments. I don’t need to rake or use a leaf vacuum anymore except in garden areas. One caveat: Know how to clean the mower’s air filter because it can get dirty. It’s not hard to clean but you need to know that’s why your mower might sputter sometimes. - Craig -

    Dried leaves can be dusty so good advice about checking air filter. - Dennis
