put a dump insert in the truck and buy a cheap used leaf vacuum to start....once you start using equipment instead of muscle you will watch profit sky-rocket and start to really enjoy cleanups like I do

leaf removal isnt part of the job around here. pile leaves/grass at the curb and the towns remove them. they come by each neighborhood once or twice a week and take care of that. as far as a dump insert, maybe next year. Not quite in the budget for this year.

I dont think I said anywhere that I dislike leaves. I just want to try out my new truck and plow. But on the other hand, I have 2 new RedMax BP blowers to use this year as well.

pics from a cleanup I did last week. did a few others just forgot to bring the camera inside to charge it. I hate doing this place its always windy And it seems like the leaves fall just as fast as I can pick them up. The RedMax's are working really well so far.

yes even the older EB4401 is pretty good. RedMax has really won me over on 2-cycle equipment with these 2 blowers. When it comes time to replace my trimmer and edger, I will prob be going with RedMax.
