    NOT ME! Had to pass on a leaf loader,(needed new carpet in the house). Using the ol' rake/blowers and tarps for another year. We do fairly well with tarps though. Its either (next year) a leaf loader or a new Z turn and I'm not getting any younger so I'm leaning towards the Z turn.

    Do you guys really cut into Novemeber? I stop the last day of October and on the final invoices say "If you need any additional cuts please call to schedule"

    Maybe I'll go an extra week this year $$$$$ just dont want to upset anyone

    Edit - fall cleanups, not ready yet. Have 3 BR600's, tarps, rakes, and all the leaves go to the curb for city pick up.

    out last weekly cuts usaully end up the second week of december, weather depending.

    Leaves here are already falling. not the maples, etc... just the usaul september culprits like Sycamore trees, and even some cherries. I\m not even talking a leaf here or there.. i have to blow before i mow!

    i'll start my fall seeding in a weekpayup
