Anyone have any tips or tricks for blowing leaves? How do you manage a 3-5 person crew with 3 or 4 backpack blower and 1 or 2 push blowers? OUR STRATEGIES: When we are doing a "backpack attack" on a lawn we get a pile going and then have everyone walk into the pile kicking the leaves and blowing at the same time to move mucho leaves towards the destination (trailer with leaf vac or woods). We don't then idle down and talk back, we keep full throttle and all walk backwards still blowing towards where they need to go. Unlike snow when you cant really plow in reverse, we blow in "reverse" to stay as efficient as possible. When we use push blowers and backpacks the backpacks get the edges so that the push blowers can do the majority of the work. The backpacks help the push blowers and don't often go by them selfs. When the piles are just too big or wet, we use tarps (or if we have to go through gates) or a leaf plow on a mower. Is this pretty much what everyone does or are there other methods? I know there is no wrong or right, but what is "YOUR" way?
