98% of the yards i do are surrounded by woods so i lose all the leaves, only a few need to be sucked up.

i tell them its the same price if i come once or twice, its just easier for me to come twice.

my guess would be the same reason my parents bussiness doesnt....my parents go by the rule dont get a dump unless you absolutely need to carry more than a pickup with sides or an insert can. that is because that truck can then drive on the merrit and isnt listed as a commercial vehicle but a comb.

Ahhhh, this hurts to the bone....Anyway, blower looks awasome. A few guys that believe in working smarter not harder have them by me. I cant justify it on my small yards. Good luck with the monster and make some leave fly!
