    I have an association looking to get a total of 1/4 mile of ditch cleaned out. Its just leaves and it can get thrown up over the banking. Its not full of trash or sticks. It's also not one continuous stretch, its broken up over 3/4 of a mile. I need some help on a price. Any ideas???:confused:

    What is the condition of the ditch? If it's really in bad shape, then probably you would want to check into a rubber track excavator. If it's just a bunch of leaves, then I would suggest that you look into a leaf sucker.

    If its a drainage ditch then a leaf vac wont help, at-least if their is any water in the ditch. If its dry then you should be all set to use a vac.
