I am a solo operator but during fall clean ups I have 1 or 2 friends help me out depending what job I am doing that day. My set up is as follows.
2- Echo 755T Backpack blowers
1- Little Wonder 11hp Push Blower
1- Billy Goat DL Debris Loader
1- Scag Turf Tiger 61" w/ bagging system
1- F250 with dump insert boxed in with 6ft high walls.

Most jobs I begin with blowing all the beds or areas the mowers can't reach out. Beginning of the fall season when leaf coverage is minimal I will just drive around and suck the leaves up with my mower. At the peak of the season when lawns are completely covered I will normally blow the front yard to a central location/curb where I can get the truck in and suck up the leaves.
My local town dump takes all leaves from residents and turns them into compost. I also have a local farm that sells compost so they take unlimited leaves as well.
