    Wait until you put some gator blades on it! I have about 220hrs on mine and have had it for 2 seasons now. Your right, it is definitely a game changer! They don’t call it a quickcat for nothing.

    Ok so I have a question … I have a space here where I can dump unlimited leaves/grass etc for free. should I not charge a dump fee or should I charge a dump fee?

    I don't have to pay to dump either, but I definitely charge a dump fee. You still have to load/unload the leaves.

    Charge something to useage of your fuel and there is the labor.. that is the way i see it.. so at least that much

    I have my own place but I basically have added my own dump fee into my charge. Its none of their business if I take it to the dump or it goes into my giant composting bins. I have 4 that I fill one every year and by year four I have some nice soil for my gardens.

    I have done leaf removal already a couple times. I have never charged for disposal, but I always let them know that most contractors do charge for this. I think people like to feel like they are getting a deal because I have already received multiple word of mouth referrals.

    They may like getting a deal, but remember we trying to make money. I know when I first got into business, I did a lot of stuff like that to be nice, but I quickly realized that didn't pay the bills. My goal is to go after customers that I don't have to haul away debris. Woods can be our best friend lol
