    I'm actually surprised at the lack of guys out working. I do all my spring cleanups with rakes and blowers.

    I don't think I would put mowers on the lawns yet, but my cleanups are well underway. Got further down the list than I planned today ;)

    High end resi.

    Now when it comes to mow and go types, yes.
    But even in the high end sites I'm not seeing many people working. Maybe that's why I landed another all inclusive today ;)

    A Trac vac just doesn't clean a lawn like a blower run over it. Again, I chase $1k month resi contracts.

    One more edit, and I'll go back to shutting up. Those rakes your questioning, made a meere $108 man hour today.

    I started the season today. Had a clean up and have one tomorrow, I hate when they don't do a fall clean up and the leaves are a foot deep in the corners next to the house.:wall

    I hear ya, my ole lady was nagging in my ear. Truth be known, I don't have the big vacums and such, but I am set for the clients I pursue.

    So for the snotty attitude last night.

    Rakes are just to inefficient for me. I need blowers and mowers going!!

    Hmmm sounds too good to be true, although if u do a good fall clean up, spring clean ups can be done real easy with a tarp and a couple of blowers
