You say "or" in the post.
I usually do both and the customer knows this up front. I'll mulch them up until they become over baring. I charge more to mulch them then a regular cut, after that I bag. This is on a place that dumps leaves like crazy. After the forth or fifth week I'm having to start bagging. At that point it becomes a full on clean up and I'll be doing it every other week for about 2 months or until it snows and I can't do anymore. On properties that don't have 60+ trees, I just mulch the leaves and charge a little extra depending on how bad the leaves are. In the case of being only one or two small trees I just mulch them at no extra charge.
I have to say, it's one of the best investments I've made. It makes things much easier. The ONLY downside I found after 5 years of use is that you can't get into a 90 degree corner if there's grass there due to the larger round disk. The remedy is to reach down and pluck it out of the way. LOL Outside of that, there's nothing else I'd rather use. I know others will start cussing when I say this and think a stick edger is better (and it is for the right situation) but once a edge is cut with a stick edger, the Edgit and a nice light weight trimmer can not be beat on a weekly trim. I can use the trimmer in both directions and get a clean crisp edge. It seems my walk behind and my stick edgers always leave a few blades behind where the Edgit doesn't. It saves time not having to go back and forth to the trailer to swap equipment since you can edge and trim with the same tool.
I'm not affiliated with them in anyway but as much as I've pimped their product, it'd be nice to get a new unit for my Echo 210.
Did you catch that Edgit?
hahaha... Thanks for a great product.
