    excellent, that's all i can say. most properties don't require a catcher,cus the meg mo's turn the leaves to dust. those that do require a catcher, disposal is reduced to half a barrel, where it normally was 4 full barrels! these blades are the best thing that ever happened to me(in terms of equipment) . i used to dread leaves, now, i laugh at them

    How is this billed? As a partial leaf cleanup, or just billed as a cut?

    Aren't you worried about the mess in the spring time you will have to dethatch? also, leaves that compact like that on a yard will leave you with dead patches.

    dethatch? dead patches? chevy the clippings don't cause "thatch". and there are no "compact" spots. the leaves are ground up so tiny, they decompose in a fraction of the time they usually would. a good rain and you can't even see them at all. oh, and you, moderator, for your information, it is grasscutting + leaf cleanup. till nov. 1st, then they have a flat price for fall cleanup, and i have the option, do it in several "mini" cleanups, or wait till the end and do it all at once. IT'S UP TO ME. cus i am in charge!

    yeah you are in charge all right...only business in America where the customer is always wrong! haha

    well actually grinding too many leaves will cause a layer of thatch that will increase the breeding ground for mold. How many years have you used these? what is spring like for you?
