    Does anyone use a lawn vacuum for gumballs? If so, what do you charge per hour?

    Yes, chill my brutha, but we do have "gumballs" on east coast. They're seed pods from the tulip tree, Liquidambar Stryciflua (spp????). Also known as sticky balls! Ha. Pain in the nadss to clean-up.

    Yeah, if you look at my location, it says "NC", does that stand for No Charge or North Carolina, cause the last time I looked, the coast is to the east.

    Actually the seed pods are from the Sweet Gum (Liquidambar styraciflua) and they can be found literally everywhere.

    its easier to use blowers rakes and shovels.

    $500.00 per minute

    I guess those things I used to step on in my grandmother's back yard in Virginia Beach were something else since we don't have them on the east coast. Silly me, I thought they were gumballs. :dizzy:

    boy, you people are touchy......I can smell the attitudes all the way to here in NC, while sitting under my gum tree, after twisting my ankle on all those dang gumballs.
    I use my walker sometimes, but its hell on the blades. I am in the market for a vacuum. Leaning toward the little wonder, if only because of price.
