I live in an old neighborhood with old hardwoods and mostly old neighbors. I think I can fill a need AND make a little extra money removing leaves. The lots in my neighborhood are about 1/3 of an acre. I think I have about 4 options for getting the job done but can use some advice. 1. A rake and a tarp (effective but time consuming). 2. Bag them with my lawnmower (this works well on my yard but I have to empty the bag dozens of times) 3. Buy a used Billy Goat (or similar) push lawn vacuum 4. Buy a used Billy Goat debris loader and a trailer. Blow all the leaves to where I am parked and suck them up with the vacuum hose and use the trailer to catch the mulch. My questions are basically based around the last 2 options I mentioned. How much more area can I cover with one bag on a lawn vacuum compared to one bag on a regular push mower. I assume the bags are bigger and the leaves get shredded up better with the lawn vacuum. Is the improvement significant enough to warrant buying a used unit for around 5 or 6 hundred dollars? With my 4th option, I know I would be potentially tying up close to $3000 depending on the unit and size of trailer. Do the debris loaders shred the leaves up finer than the leaf vacuums? Please excuse my ignorance on the topic. I'm just trying to figure out if it makes sense to invest money into something that is specifically designed to handle leaves. Any other thoughts/suggestions are welcome. Thank you very much for your time.
