    we are getting $50-60 per/ man hr for leaf removal with high end backpack blowers and good equipment etc. using a 7x14 dump trailer with 3' sides for haul offs. ii usually just blow or drag them into the woods but i have alot of hauloff customrs scheduled this fall and was wondering how you guys were charging for hauloffs. also do you charge the same if its 1/2 load or a full load? thanks in advance

    Its all time based plus disposal for me. Might try reducing the size of the leaves. Blow them into drive or street run them over a few times with mower then throw them in trailer. Just my 2 cents. Not familiar with your setup so good luck

    With my dump trailer/ leaf vac setup I charge more around $100+ per hour and disposal ($9 a yard approx). Im solo and use an 8hp littlewonder blower, shindy backpack, and handheld blower. I try to aviod using rakes and I never mow for a one time cleanup customer.
