    Does anyone know how to price out power brooming? Is it by the hour or sq. ft. or acre?

    Hourly in your head, by the job to the customer.

    I thought that at first too. Then I figured its good for getting sand and salt from winter out. Not sure why you would do a whole yard. It won't dethatch.

    Can't believe you haven't seen or heard about them....use them for spring clean ups it's an attachment that goes on our line trimmers. The other one is a walk behind between 36 and 48 inches and is very common. If you haven't seen it don't knock it. We have never been asked to do a whole lawn that's why I had posed the question. Thanks anyway.

    I've seen them. Those and the rubber paddle for multitool systems. I always thought more fore hardscape or snow removal.
