[Market-farming] Shredding Leaves Efficiently

I use a lawn mower.

Every time I go over it, I cut the leaf in half.  So I
just keep going over it until it is the size that I want and then
I put the bagger on and pick it up and dump it in my beds.

Or I drive around with the mower and point the chute toward the beds.

I love my leaf compost.
