    I would appreciate any advice on the topic of leaves. I maintain a property that has a lot of fallen leaves. More than I planned for. I am filling & disposing 2 trailers of leaves per service.

    Try running the mower over them before loading. Chopped up leafs take up less space.

    You don't seem to have a specific question so I'll give you general advice.
    Easiest way to screw yourself in the lawn biz is leaves. Takes more equipment, time and everything. Consider the time to haul off and possible dump fees also. As Elmer Fudd said be veewwy careful when pricing leaf jobs.

    My guess is you've bit off more than you bargained for. Been there done that.

    Yep me too. If your doing enough leaf jobs invest in at least a good commercial mower with a large bagging system. I finally broke down and bought one last year and it's been a HUGE time and back saver.
