Yeah, this is actually my last wee of cutting, and then I will see how it works out, not all of my customers have me do the leaves, some are cheap and do it themselves, wich is fine with me, cleaning up leaves is my least favorite thing to do with landscaping.

I will cleanup leaves over cutting lawns ANY day of the year. A matter of fact I would probably do anything other than mow, I hate mowing...

Cleanups are good when you have the right equipment ie track vac ,leaf loader, walk behind blower that mounts to the ztr and a huge leaf box on a dump truck or trailer anything less is uncivilized lol.

Same Headed south on halloween for a little then Fall Cleanups!
cant really start too many cleanups before nov. 1st

Except a few like the trees in my backyard have already dropped all of their leaves.

i dont know what i would do without my UltraVac! (well i do...) Its not fun though! I got the dumping one. The 3 bags seemed like alot of work When they have to go through the leaf loader!
