    Hasn't happened in a long time. I'm pretty efficient as it is, I can knock out an average Florida lawn in just about 25 minutes by myself. But this week I bought a bigger blower thinking thats the one place I can shave off time. Sure enough with more power I saved a bunch, I'd say roughly to 30 min a day. Feels good cuz time is money.

    Its funny how a blower can make such a difference. My BP blower is unusable right now. Last week I had to skip all of my accounts because of Gustav so there grass was really tall. I had to use my homelight handheld blower and in a 9 hour day i swear I spent an hour and half blowing. It made me realize that more power in the smallest places means more money :)

    Try a redmax 8001 or a stihl br600. You'd be suprised at how fast you can get done.

    i think its because it hasn't been raining as much as before. my tuesday route seemed that way, i got done sooner and i had to stop and think, "did i skip somebody?...well at least in my area, so i celebrated with a cold one when i got home :drinkup:

    I recently discovered the advantages of using two handheld blowers,
    one in each hand :p
