I'm thinking about doing leaf clean-up this fall because I will actually be driving very shortly before the leaves start falling. I just got a Shindaiwa EB630RT and I have the other small blower listed below. I am pretty much rendering the Weed Eater blower useless for leaf work. I'm pretty tight on money for extra equipment. I'm focusing my extra money on mowing equipment and advertising for the upcoming year. I could possibly get a simplicity push blower from my dealer that went out of business. He still has stuff sitting in his building. He is completely shutdown but I know him personally, so I could probably get it cheap. I don't really want to go that route, but it does have a 12:1 conversion ratio and a bag on the back. It also has a 6.5HP B&S. same exact model as the one on my Snapper. Will people be happy if you just blow the leaves to the curb nice and neatly or do they want complete removal. Also, if you bag grass, can't you just dump it on the curb and the city sweep truck will collect it. Thanks for any advise guys.
