    Do most people who mow also have leaf and debris removal included with their lawn-mowing service?

    Yes Make it a labor charge, Like minimum one hour. Don't suck them up with a mower, Try to blow them to the truck and suck them up makes it look better for the minimum.

    I spend a little more for a great dealer, Parts in stock, mowers in stock and so on. But i got a price on a 48, 17hp Kaw, With out elec Start. Hyd turf tracer hp Oh with ECS Was 5,000.

    Only if you have a place to put the leaves. thats right blow them to the truck and suck them up. A nominal fee over the cost of regular maintenance will cover the leaf removal. Keep the fee reasonable or you lose work quick. I learn from experience.
