    Here are some pictures of my leaf setup for this season (well, this weekend anyway, as the landfill was closed for vet. day). The Ranger and trailer are mine, the Dodge is Dad's, and the smaller trailer belongs to LS member Jason Rose. I drove the Dodge and a frined of mine (who has had basically now driving experience, and NONE with a trailer) drove my Ranger and leaf trailer. Ok, I know it was dumb letting..errrr... making him drive with the trailer, but i did show him how first, and he has rode with me quite a bit when pulling a trailer.

    The leaves there on the trailer came from two lawns, but some are bags of leafs that the homeowner had picked up and i said i would haul of for $25. I underpriced most of my cleanups so far too, but this is my first season really doing cleanups "right".

    Anyway, here are the pics. I know that it aint no C70 with a leaf loader, but I get by.

    the last pic. I REALLY wish i took a picture of the last lawn we did today, as it turned out near perfect. Oh well.

    EDIT- oh, wait, 1 and 4 are the same thing. Oh well.

    Well, for one, I wanted to tow the borrowed trailer to be sure it DID NOT get boogered up, and for two, there is not really that much differance (2ft). I bet the weight is actually heavier on the smaller trailer, as the equipment i am sure weighs more then the leafs.

    It is FREE! We can take ANYTHING to our county landfill and dump for free. It is VERY nice. And if it wasnt free, I would just charge my customers what the dump fee would be, plus some, and just dump it on some of our fields at the farm and work it in in the spring.
