I use a Black and Decker Vac-n-Mulch and a LOT of extension cords. The main problem is that the bag fills up quickly so then I empty it into a light weight plastic garbage can and drag the mulch to whichever bed I am mulching or to the compost bins. When the leaves get ahead of me late in the fall I drive the riding mower over anything I can but then they can't be used as mulch because raking is not on my list of "fun things to do" list. But it is that or I am wading through literally knee high leaves blown up against the front of the house. The Vac-n-mulch was somewhere around $50-$70 at Lowe's or Home Depot.
