I do not have a cyclone rake, but I have an Ingersoll tractor with the grass collector with a hydrolic pto vacuum. Works well if the leaves are dry. If the leaves are heavy,wet the hose will clog up. The style I have does not have the trailer to pull, I could convert to that type. Look on ebay, track vac's have been around for a long time. I used the track vac's in the past for a landscaper, they work well but are bigger to store, the cyclone would be compact to store. When you need a new lawn tractor, check out the Ingersoll, their is a ton of accesories for them (vacuum,log splitter, chipper, roto tiller,rear field mower,snow blower,plow, and anything you can pull with a 3 point hitch) I do have a log splitter and it works well.
