Leaf business is pick up

After a super short mowing season, I hope to make up some lost revenue with leaves this year.
Here is my smaller unit. The other is a old tractor with 5ph bower into a big box that holds 400 lbs plus of leaves and grass.

Leaves can be a decent revenue stream if you are equipped for it and price it right. I am not replying to tell anyone how to price however this is not a weekly mow type event. You will definately be spending more time per stop and using more back, gas, equipment and time.
Good luck on your season. It is kind of sad to vacuum that last bagger full and put the stuff away for the snow.
