    I currently mow a few properties that get bagged every cut. But now early amounts of leaves are falling in certain small areas. When i mow these leaves get sucked up and are causing me to dump my bagger more times than normal. Pretty much what do you guys so in this situation. They pay for it to be bagged but not for leaf clean up. More dumps more time same pay that bites.

    I do not bag any lawns, except for leaf cleanup. there is a eXtra charge for this, and my customers pay it gladly. They like the way the lawn looks when it is vacumed clean with the lazer/ultra vac.
    I would wait to charge extra until they fall a little heavier, then it is justified. JMO

    WOW another Gateway owner!
    Like the above post, charge more when leaves really come. I would advise a note explaining what the charges will be prior to billing.

    I forgot to add, couldn't you cut mulch em up in oen pass, and bag on the second at a fasater speed? You would have a lot less less leaves and grass to bag....
