I have nothing but good things to say about the XL model I purchased. Assembly went well. Startup and operating also very good. Attached to my 1023e John Deere, cleaning up the leaves on my lawns was a breeze. Due to high winds we've had recently, pine cones were very heavily mixed in with the leaves. I would guess at least 95% of the cones were picked up on the first pass. If the unit continues to operate as well as it has this season, you can count me as a very satisfied owner.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
