I am thinking of sending one of the guys out tomorrow by himself to start a leaf cleanup but just giving him a 48" WB with a bagger. Just have him bag leaves and dump them in the truck. What do you think?

Something similar has crossed my mind. I have a walk-behind vac, but I also have a snapper rider which, quite sadly, works a lot quicker at sucking leaves. I'm thining about using the snapper rider on its highest setting and just follow-up cutting with the 48" mower. It doesn't seem like a professional appearance, but its definitely quicker. I've found that with the 48" WB the front of the deck pushes a lot of the leaves out of the way and they don't make it under the deck, so I'm not sure if that would work for you as far as sucking leaves goes.

Bagging leaves with a wb bagger?? I sure hope your lawns aren't very big (anything over 5M). You go 10 ft. and have to dump. When we used wb's, we windrowed, and just walked down the row(s) with a tarp and rake. By far,...faster.
