    Hey guys. For fall leaf cleanup, what is your method of picking up/disposing leaves? I know the common method is blowing them into piles, and sucking them up with a truck mounted vaccum. Another method i see used is bagging them with a mower's bagger, but then do u dump the bags into the truck? thanks

    I use the mower and bag all the leaves and haul them to the dump in bags.

    What kind of bags do you use? How do you load the bags? Are they disposabale? How big? Do you only use them for leaves, or for grass too?

    We use an infrarader, then dump them into a sentile. We can average 12 cleanups a day on 1/2 acre properties this way. Equipment maintenance is key though, and parts are getting harder to find.
