yeah I have to charge more because for the extra time spent raking, I could be somewhere else making the same money basically and making more customers happy. That leaf bagger does just as good, if not a better job than the rake.
Dust isnt a big problem. I mean, I could have blown and bagged it and got a little dust on her house, and if its a big deal to her, I could have pressure washed her whole house, and it still would have been cheaper than using the rake.
some people dont realize that the old fashioned way isnt always the best way.
