    Just starting to get some light leaves on lawns, that can be bagged up with my Scag. I was wondering how everyone else charges when the blowers don't need put on the lawns but the leaves need picked up with the bagging unit that you have. These are yards that are all over 1 acre, and normally do not get bagged. Also consider that the grass is still growing and if bagged we are talking about alot of grass needed to be taken out. I do not mulch.

    Same sit., I charge $3. a bag to the reg. service call. When the leaves are to thick to bag I put the Trac-Vac on and charge $80. an hour

    I just make sure I have Gator blades on. If I need to bag, I use my Walker & charge per bushel offloaded.

    I usually windrow them into the woods, same price as always, hence why I like to price things a bit high.
