    I have a chance to get a job maintaining 3 sorority houses near U.S.C. I went and looked at them yesterday.There's not that much grass to cut but I noticed lots and lots of trash,cigarette butts,etc. all over the lawn and sidewalks.
    I have an Exmark w/Ultravac.Can I just run over all that debris with the mower and completely pick it up or would I need to use some kind of vacuum(BG vac?) first?Thanks. Jim

    Shouldn't be a problem. Just keep your eyes on the lawn, not the sorority chickies!!

    I would think that you wouldn't have a problem unless its a glass bottle. I've sucked up many a "forgotten" newspaper (the entire thing) and it was quick to pickup the few straggling shreds of paper.

    As for sidewalks....that may be a bit tricky, but as long as you have the Anti BLowout Baffle installed it'll suck them right off the pavement!

    make sure you add in a fair amount of time to pick stuff up because there will always be crap in the lawn....at least its that way at our frat house.
