    Yes, this is a great time to make lots of $$$. I'm looking to make the most possible and also looking for suggestions. For the accounts that removal is a must do most of you use something along the lines of a "billy goat" vac mounted to the truck/trailer, or do you use a rider with a collection system?

    mmm yummy I am looking forward to eating all that dust and cleaning out my eyes every five minute oh the great days of leaf clean ups. NO I am not looking forward to it at all. On a better note does anyone have any tips on making it easier for me. Thanks

    3 plow trucks and I work p/t for a CPA doing QuickBooks stuff (mostly data entry at my home) for some of his business clients. Real easy work that pays me $25 an hour at MY convenience.

    How do you go about leaf removal? I don't have any collection system!

    some blades ain't gonna save you 80% time if you have to truck it, or move it across a few acres of property.

    no one around here just mulches leaves on the property. you have to move them to the woods or dump off site.
