Hey just wondering if there is anyone else out there like me that is'nt looking forward to fall-ups this year. Sure the money is great and it means that summer if coming to an end but I really don't like clean-ups....... :dizzy:

Fall is my favorite time of year.

Changing over the landscapes to the fall planting of Mums, Cabbage and Kale. Pumpkin displays. It's GREAT!!!

I hope that G-D will have mercy on my soul this fall. I have a property which is basically a forest with grass planted under it. However to move the leaves around this property may very well take a leaf sucker truck. Can't just blow them off to the side :(

I can't wait for winter to roll around. I'm sick of mowing yards all day in 105 - 110 heat.

Yes, this is a great time to make lots of $$$. I'm looking to make the most possible and also looking for suggestions. For the accounts that removal is a must do most of you use something along the lines of a "billy goat" vac mounted to the truck/trailer, or do you use a rider with a collection system?

mmm yummy I am looking forward to eating all that dust and cleaning out my eyes every five minute oh the great days of leaf clean ups. NO I am not looking forward to it at all. On a better note does anyone have any tips on making it easier for me. Thanks

3 plow trucks and I work p/t for a CPA doing QuickBooks stuff (mostly data entry at my home) for some of his business clients. Real easy work that pays me $25 an hour at MY convenience.

Look at Peco or Trac Vac Collection Systems. We have 6 of them.

some blades ain't gonna save you 80% time if you have to truck it, or move it across a few acres of property.

no one around here just mulches leaves on the property. you have to move them to the woods or dump off site.
