    its 18ft. with 6 guys blowing and 3 sucking up we can do 4-5 loads a day. but thats after i have the guys get in and smash it down. now thats the accounts that are close to where i dump. if there far away its only like 2-3 loads.

    ok i got how your loads are so high i take it that most of the northern guys just blow the leaves to the roads and then vac them up . we mulch then bag and dump out at the road then vac up the mess ...... we get more materials in the load but you guys move to the next job faster i guess .
    when we haul leaves we may be on 1 job 20 miles out of office all day and to run it 3-4 times a day would become costly

    we blow to the curb line or in piles. to mulch them then dump then suck up is to much. so we are out a lot faster than.
