we are still tied up with a few of the foreclosed homes but besides that we aren't really doing anything, no one has called us for any clean ups

just alot of leaf clean ups i dont have any fancy way of cleaning them up just with a blower and leaf rake just like you. I have been however looking at the trac vac systems thinking about getting one of them to mount on my z mower for next fall clean-up. I think it would save time and be alot more efficient. What do u think about them?

Leaf removal

Yeah I have heard about them. Not sure if I have an opinion as of yet on them. Sounds like a good idea, anything beats the old blower and rake routine. Thinking about buying one of the big vacs and maybe using a used dump bed with an enclosure next year. Depends on the real important part....money. What have you heard about your system?

The convention or short course, Is going to be in Virginia Beach at the Founders Inn on Jan 27 - Feb 1 ,2008. Not sure of the expenses though. YOu can pick up a copy of the procure at Lesco's (that is where I got mine). I meight even have a phone number somewhere if you need it.

I have been busy trimmjing hedges and picking up leaves. I did one yard the other day, 45 bags of leaves. I need one of those leaf vacs pronto. You ever get any information about that?
