I have to bag 90% of my work due to upscale residences. However, I do have many leaves to deal with on some of the established homes with large trees. I have tried mulching and it doesnt ever get the job done to my standards. I picked up an old chipper shredder and it has cut down the volume of my leaf removal volume by at least 500% I can pack huge amounts of leaves in my shredder bag because it shreds it so small. The only issue I have is covering the the shredded leaves on the trailer, because in the end its almost dust and make make a mess when transporting if you dont get it covered good.
