How do you price leaf removal and what equipment works best
Most guys on here seem to just use blowers or a leaf plow attachment to get them to the curb then use a leaf loader to blow them onto the truck. AS for pricing it you'll have to wait for more answers but I have seen the number of 120 an hour a few times.
I use my walker mower and I usually double the amount that I would charge for a cut, depending on the depth of the leaves. (i.e. if I would usually charge $40 to cut a property and if I can tell leaves have been picked up before or you can see the yard beneath them then I would charge $80. If there is a thick covering of leaves then my price would be $120 or higher.)
Not very scientific but it works for me
I get 120.00 per hours for two guys.
If the leaves have to be removed from the property with the truck loader, I get another 100.00 for a disposal fee.
1 Scag Tiger Cub with triple bagger
2 backpack blowers
1 push blower
Suck them up if required with a 16hp leaf loader mounted on a dump truck.
