    Guess I'm missing something? You have been doing the leaf removal in the past, so I'm thinking you are going to have to charge basically the same amount you always have. Using the bagger is simply a more efficient way of doing it.

    In the past it was all blower work out to the curb. The bagger is one of those mulcher types that bolt right on to my exmark so the bags won't fill up too quickly. I just know that thing really sucks the gas down when I'm running that bagger so I thought I might charge a bit more.

    I'd say about half of my clients I can just dump the leaves at the curb for the city. Most of the rest are very rural so there's usually a place to dump them (in the brush, woods, field, etc.) If not I can haul them away in my truck but I'll hardly ever have to do that. I'm sorry I wasn't more clear when I started this thread. :hammerhead:
