Yes, this is a great time to make lots of $$$. I'm looking to make the most possible and also looking for suggestions. For the accounts that removal is a must do most of you use something along the lines of a "billy goat" vac mounted to the truck/trailer, or do you use a rider with a collection system?

3 plow trucks and I work p/t for a CPA doing QuickBooks stuff (mostly data entry at my home) for some of his business clients. Real easy work that pays me $25 an hour at MY convenience.

some blades ain't gonna save you 80% time if you have to truck it, or move it across a few acres of property.

no one around here just mulches leaves on the property. you have to move them to the woods or dump off site.
