Back in the late 80's I was sucking up the leaves for a landscaping friend for $75 a pile, he would be there to help me load. I had a 30 hp vacuum so like yours it would go fast, sometimes not, it sounds like there is nothing to it but it still took time. You have to figure if it's for a home owner you will be doing all the work, and what if you get there and the piles are a mess, you want one big pile not allot of small ones. But was it worth it. yes. The only drawback for me was I had a ton of leaf jobs back then and it took my away from my jobs. You only have so much time for leaves till the ground freezes.
