    we are still tied up with a few of the foreclosed homes but besides that we aren't really doing anything, no one has called us for any clean ups

    just alot of leaf clean ups i dont have any fancy way of cleaning them up just with a blower and leaf rake just like you. I have been however looking at the trac vac systems thinking about getting one of them to mount on my z mower for next fall clean-up. I think it would save time and be alot more efficient. What do u think about them?

    Yeah I have heard about them. Not sure if I have an opinion as of yet on them. Sounds like a good idea, anything beats the old blower and rake routine. Thinking about buying one of the big vacs and maybe using a used dump bed with an enclosure next year. Depends on the real important part....money. What have you heard about your system?

    I have been busy trimmjing hedges and picking up leaves. I did one yard the other day, 45 bags of leaves. I need one of those leaf vacs pronto. You ever get any information about that?
