    Red oak leaves are scattered on my backyard after snowfall. They had been hanging tough otherwise

    Looks like for about the 3rd time in 35 years I'll be pulling my trailer around sucking up leaves with my mower while the plow is on the front. Just hope it gets warm enough so they're not all frozen to the ground. truck.jpg

    2 weeks ago here south east michigan by lake st clair 80% of leaf in trees , 5 days later after rain days then lots of wind 80% of leaf on ground . started into leafs clean ups for one day and then rain or snow started on a regular basis making it hit or miss since with only being able to get say 3 full days and the rest iffy to nothing . just partially drove our accounts today in the **** misty rain :cry: and saw bout 15 in big messes with streets at curbs loaded with maple leaf because near every home on our route has a 60 year old silver maple between street and sidewalk . weve bout 30 substancial leaf clean ups to do so hopefully we get dry weather til december . fall got here early now so has winter

    You haven't truly lived until you've plowed with a full leaf box towering in the back.

    Maybe your leaves are messing with a good snow season?

    Also I think your chocolate is in my peanut butter

    I unhook my plow after the work is done. Is it that difficult to remove the plow?

    You can't plow the leaves off the lawn without the plow :laugh:

    We leave our plows on for the whole plowing season, no need to take them off after every event. Only take them off if a truck needs service.

    That's crazy. It takes me literally about one minute to disconnect the plow. It's about as fast hooking it up.

    Holy carp...only the 3rd time in 35 years?

    Pretty sure I would be the reverse, only 3 times we've finished cleanups WITHOUT plows on trucks.
