I'm thinking Mid-Nov if weather let's us. What was it, a few years ago I swear I could of cut a few in December when the temps hit high 50's.

The lawns are growing like crazy, there is no way all the leaves will be down by mid-oct.

We're so tired of grass! I'm cutting at 3" AND some even at 2"ish... Im trying to finish the by the end of the October 16th week (3 more cuts) So the 2nd to last week of october. Usually do it that way. Take the last week off and shoot down to florida for a week. Then come back Jump right into fall cleanups til the first "real" snow.

Remember 2 years ago we had to finish up the last HUGE clean up, Put the plows on. THen plow for 8 hrs straight!

Thats why i keep my fall cleanup and snow removal rigs separate! Cant plow 5" of snow with a 6+ft box on!

Hey guys. I have a 5x10 open trailer for sale if anyone is interested. It's a 2009 Integrity open landscape trailer. Very good condition, the only reason i'm selling it is because I got another mower and need a 6x12 now. It's red and its made out of a tube frame and sides, not angle iron. Im located in Troy and would be willing to meet someone near here. I'm looking for $1100 firm. I called the dealer the other day and these sell for $1750 plus tax.

If anyone's interested call or text Dan at 248 225 9896

I don't think all the leaves will be down by the week end of the 16th...there is just too many green leaves even on junk trees...
