Did you put it up on the equipment marketplace here? So you gonna get another backpack instead?

Most of the snow has melted and the leaves are drying out. I'm gonna give cleanups another try tomorrow. I took today off to do the bills and banking and to look at a tree job I'm going to have to sub out. I was planning to work today but by the time I finished everything else it was 3pm, lol.

P.S. - I just spotted your ad

Yep I just can't beat the prodution of the 580 with the Goat. Now that that thing has had about 10 gallons ran through it, she is just ripping through yards, I cannot keep up with the leaf loader......I seen that snow on the news the other morning....that's crazy, I feel for all those people with no power......and what makes me sick is I have not seen one ad on tv to send help, money, food, yatta yatta....but if it happend in a another country we'd be rallying around the flag pole.....

....or I should have said the leaf loader can't keep up....I blasted through a couple yards and have to go back and suck it up......got rain coming so I figured better to have it off the yard and less labor later

Yeah...do the getting while the getting is good is what I say. I have tarped leaf piles before until they could be sucked up to keep them from getting wet.

Interesting point about nobody soliciting for help for the vicitms of Hurricane Sandy, I haven't heard anything either. It's not on the order of Katrina or anything but there's some pretty major damage. Jersey got hit way worse than we did here in CT though. There are still people without power down there. Our power company just sent a fleet of trucks down to help.

Here's the town beach...pics were "stolen" from a friend's Facebook page. That's how much sand was in the road and how much got eroded from around the snack bar. The next town over from me has a dump site for storm debris like they did for Hurricane Irene last year, but this year there's a huge amount of demo debris too, not just stuff from trees. One of my customers owns a drywall business and says his phone has been ringing off the hook.

This is how a local competitor left this lawn, I got called in to save the day. I earned another customer for the spring in the process.
