Guys,Sorry to be this long in a reply here to you on the 455 & Cyclone Rake. The 455 does a Great Job with it Rob. I have Mulching blades on mower also,This Helps lot too I think. And Yes, Thats the Classic model , One of the Best things I have ever laid out my hard earned $$ for was My Cyclone Rake. It has done the Job for me since 1999. Last year or so ago now the inpeller blade broke a piece off,I called Company--Told them what happen --Few days later a New one come by UPS Man--They Never charged me a dine for it!! The 5hp Tecumseh on it has been a Great little engine too--Never a mins trouble from it. And Guys I USE THIS THING--Around here a LOT!
Rob, Its simple thing,Easy to use and Easy to take down and put back together,Don't take up much storage space, Easy to maintain it. AND THING WORKS!! Like it says it does... I would highly recommend it --To anyone who had Lot of leafs or Big yard to work,It makes a pretty yard mowed with it too,cleans up the grass clippings w/ease. Any question--Feel free to e-mail me.
Love my Deere & Cyclone Rake!
