I do mulch, only some of my accounts have thin turf and can't hide the amount of left overs from the leaves. Need a quality mower with a removable bagger for winter time.

I have a metal side catcher that we could get to fit on your Phazer. It came with a 48in walk behind I bought a few years ago. I will never use it. Grass Gobbler is the name of it. $50.00 come and get it. Bring your mower and we'll make sure it fits before you leave. Call me if your interested. 352*669*291zero.

That sounds like a reason for a "clean up" charge if it were me...are you charging extra above and beyond for cleaning up leaves? If leaves are that big of a issue they should not have a problem understanding the extra if you are not getting it.

Walker or Navigator, but if you want something with a removable catcher get a Grasshopper or Toro/Exmark with the bagging system.

Your opening a new bag of worms then. Then they will expect it bagged all year watch. We used to bag everything down here in the 80s. I'm glad that trend is done. Don't start it up again.
