I have a question about yard clean up. I am fairly new to cleaning up yards(started this year), and i wanted to ask the professoinals a question. So this spring I started and i worked my @$$ off raking nd making yards look nice, and i would like an easier way for this fall. Since the yards dont need to be raked for the grass(or do they?) is it okay for me to bag the grass? Also, i have a little bit of money to spend(around $500 or so) that i could pay back, so should i buy a backpack blower or a bagger for my toro or scag z turn? If anyone has any seggestions to how this fall can be easier and quicker, i would greatly appreciate it. And this way i can charge y the job, and not by the hour(which still pays well).

One get the BP for one $500 is not going to get you a bagger for your mower. Get some good tarps as well.

the bp would only be like $300, so theres $200 left. And are you sure that baggers wouldnt pick up leaves? and whe i saw bagger i mean just like a side discharge catcher for a w/b

Yes it will pick up the leaves a good BP will cost you at least $400. The side catchers don't hold alot of leaves thou.

a bagger on a mower doesn't do much for leaves, you have to empty about every 30 seconds and that is no ****...get something that chops up the leaves even more than the blades already have like a trac-vac, it chops on a ratio of 10:1 and holds 44 gallons, much more productive...www.trac-vac.com, it'll be worth it in the long run...
