i have a scag 48 inch a stlh blower and plenty of rakes the leaves and stuff is so matted down that i think raking the jobs with 3 guys is faster than using my equipment. i fugure 150 dollars per clean up 20 dollars an hour to pay workers. 3 hours a job so 60 dollars for workers per job and 90 for me what do you think. just so u know im not a big time place right now im 17 and still in high school but i have enough work to keep me busy everyday after school and every weekend until grass grows. so what do guys think... i wil.l use the blower in the flower beds a little bit.
