    Exactly. And as far as the service goes, just advise your customers that they don't really need a "dethatching", as chances are, better than not, they don't. You CAN however, recommend a good "rakeover and turfsweep", and this is where the JRCO shines. As far as running the Jrco, and bagging it all at once, I think I would prefer two steps. I would Rake it first with the JRCO, then, blow out the beds, and hit the cornes and boundaries with a backpack first. This will put the debris out into the range that it can be picked up, rather than leaving stuf in the corners that has to be picked up later. Another advantage of vacuuming it afterwads, is that the stuff has a chance to dry after it's fluffed to the top, and it's not nearly as damp and wet. Just an inside view....;) Also, if you have the Ultra-vac, YOU are in GREAT shape for collection. Leave the walk behind blowers alone, and just vacuum it.
