ok well, i just got 5 more accounts so i have 15 weekly and 1 bi-weekly. I am getting a f-150 as a truck and need a leaf loader, because during the school year i pay football. Practices are from 3-7:30ish monday-friday and Saturday is my game so my whole week is taken up except sunday. Last year i did the leaf cleanups with my redmax 8000 and my exmark. I blew the leaves into a long pile and ran the exmark over them until they were mulched up then put them into green barrels then into the bed of my friends pickup. It took a long time. Since i have more accounts, and only 1 day, i would like a leaf loader because of time i no it is going to save me. It also gets dark by like 6. So my question is, what is a good machine for 15 accounts and not too big for like an f-150.I will be making a box in the back of the truck.

Sorry for the long post but i had to get the info out. Thanks in advance,LawnInOrder

i know that it very earlier, but i wanna make sure i have hat need before the season starts. Maybe look for a used one, and if i new which model i wanted it would give me time to find one. Thanks LawnInOrder
