Look what we mulched, then bagged.

    Used the Toro 44" W/doubles and mulch kit. The pile was about 3 feet high after we blew everything to the grass area.

    Hope you cleaned that air cleaner half way through.

    Why not mulch them ON the lawn?

    You would think we would have to clean the air filter.

    We did mulch them on the lawn. ???

    This is after 12 hours in the dust above. This air cleaner is in great shape and if I had my stock Kohler cover on it we would have had to stop every hour and clean. The Engineaire is a GREAT investment. 59 bucks for the Kohler 15. Well worth it.

    That sure is a beautiful mess. How small did you get that pile of leaves down to?

    I did a few like that this week. You know, the non-full service customers who at 1st don't want to pay for leaf management. I give them my pricing schedule for how I charge...

    "Well..I don't know about that...it might run into too much money" or "we'll just rake them up one saturday"

    Then once they get started they change their minds or weather strikes before they finish. Then they call me...

    "We decided to go ahead and pay you to do it. We raked part of it up already"

    I'm wondering, I assume the end result was you bagged everything with the walker, since it's impossible to make that amout of leaves disappear as it seems in the picture. And if so, why didn't you just tarp the leaves into the truck, or just suck them up in the beginning, rather than waste all that time mulching and them bagging????
