    This is my first Fall Cleanup. I used a 21in toro super recycler, a rake, and a Echo pb-500.

    Thanks man! The Echo is awesome! Just the amount of power I need out of a blower (although I could see why some LCO's would need a stronger blower)

    Yeah it was fine for this kind of a cleanup, not sure how it would do with larger cleanups (stacks of wet leaves). This job had relatively minimal leaves and they were all pretty much dry.

    So how did you do it? Blow all the leaves to the street, tarp and dump on a trailer or truck? Just curious.

    Looks good.

    I mowed over it twice (bagged) and blew/raked the sidewalks and remainder of leaves into 2 or 3 small piles and put them in 2 contractor bags. Job took 1 hour by myself.

    Well, I primary work in Philadelphia (not suburbs) so it's a very competitive priced area. This house isn't very high end, but I could see how it would look like one from the picture. The lawn in $30 per cut (every 2 weeks). The Fall cleanup (just the front yard) was $60. Keep in mind, I am 17 so my prices are unfortunately expected to be lower than many companies on here.
