how many guys did you have trimming and how many cleaning up?? 400 bushes in 3hrs is 2.22 bushes per minute....now unless you're flash I don't think that's possible.

work looks good. Vinny, I do agree with you that quality is important on all sites. But he wouldnt be saving himself any time by bagging. IT would be taking him 2-3 times longer to cut those large places. Plus once you disperse those clippings a little with th blowers you wont see them at all.

Most commercial places arent bagged, unless its smaller or a lot of curbs and such. We will do those to simply save time on blowing off the parking lots, or a place where we might only fill up 1 bagger at the most.
