    For you guys that mulch leaves or bag them. Carry a handheld blower with you while you cut. This works best if you have a ZTR and can keep it running at your feet. This comes in handy for those leaves that blow back into places the mower can't reach, such as around trees. Just grab the blower while sitting on the ZTR and blow them back out and run them over real quick.

    This will keep you from having to go back and get the blower, or from waving your blow man down to come back and blow them out again. It will also keep you from just leaving them there which is probably fine (if the customer isn't picky) until last cut, but attention to detail will go far in this business.
