so it takes 5 guys to do what he does with one machine,he is gonna do it much faster with less fatigue.one helper with a back pack blower for the beds and one on the hurricane ,when the guy doing the beds is all set he can operate the leaf vac on the truck.pay 1 helper or 4 helpers ,i pick 1 helper.

While that may be true (aside from the BR550 comments), what's your time line? You will not be able to get it done as fast. Guaranteed.

Say John Goldpro's working 40-50 hours per week now. With two BR550s only, he'd be out working 300 hours a week.

we take leaf cleanup pretty serious and in the past we have always run a 5 man crew 4 on backpacks and one on the toro, this year with the addition of the hurricane blower we have cut it down to a 3 man crew with a 4th man on standby if we have a real big place schedualed for that day,

we dont even take the toro off the trailer in most cases now, the hurricane does the job of 3 men hands down. in the past we always needed 1-2 guys to follow the toro around and help fluff the leaves to make them go further and get the leaves stuck in the grass the toro didnt blow. with the hurricane we dont need anyone following it around, it gets every leaf and throws them twice as far as the toro.

I've used the biggest walk behind blower (Little Wonder) which is just like the hurricane blower, except requires manual labor ... Once the piles (leaves) get to big it's useless. So I got out the Br 550's and made headway on the pile, not saying the hurricane doesn't produce results, just stating it's over rated...!
