Hi guys and gals this is my first full year of services. I ve been searching for good tools for the spring clean up aspect of the job and have been haveing troubles with the research. I was wondering what some of you have found to best do small yards with a bit of road sand on the boulavards and leaf and thatch cleanup. I ve been doing the work by hand. I enjoy the finished product of the hand raking but the work is killer on my back i also would like to increase my productivity time. It seems to be a big waste to be ate a yard for three hours raking when i know that i can mow and stringline the yard in less then an hour with a 2 in mower. I f anyone has any suggestions on wht types of machines i should be looking for that will help speed things up that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for all the info in advanced.
