that might be your best bet!
What isn't super expensive? It all seems to cost a lot. That being said, truck loaders aren't too good. You can get a good one for a little over $3,000. When you live up north where we have lots of trees they are a necessity if you have a lot of lawns. You need to be quick and leaf loaders will pick them up quickly and get them in the dump truck/trailer. Go to the dump and press a button and watch them go away. No more loading truck with tarps and making a million trips. Leaf loaders really reduce the volume too. You don't have to get too close. Most leaf loaders will have a hose of 15 to 20 feet.
Our wheeled leaf blower is great too. Many of our customers live near woods and we can just blow the leaves right in there. Our Billy Goat wheel blower can do more blowing than several backpacks. The only side is they aren't real maneuverable.
I'll blow out the bushes etc and tight areas then mulch the leaves, then blow whats left into a pile and shovel it into bags. I've gone from 17 bags to 3 using this method.
That wouldnt help me at all...There isnt really any yards where I could pull my truck into..They all have fences, or walls with three foot gates.
Blow them out to the street and suck them up
At least %80 of the time im working in the backyard...Now way to blow em to the street..
looks like your picking them up one by one then! lol
Judging by some of the pictures ive seen of the leaf jobs you guys do out there in the east, I can see why yall need all that specialized gear...
I usually charge $40 an hour and i just use my backpack blower and a tarp. I just dump theleaves in my trailer.
i use a very intricate and complicated system of a rake and trash bags
