Looks like a sweet setup.
My god, how much money did they waste on that video.
Tax payer money used wisely...
Looks like a standard Apple IMovie template. So not much. I'd be more worried about the money they spent on the setup.....
How do you guys suggest doing a big leaf job if you don't have this rig? I have a big job coming up and trying to plan on the most efficient way to do the work. My tools include blowers, rakes, a tarp and trash bags. How do you guys collect leaves most efficiently? Would it be better to mulch the leaves with my mower first, then blow and collect? Any info is appreciated. Thanks! If I get enough of these jobs, maybe I'll be able to get a used billy goat next year.
That thing is sweet you don't even have to have someone manually working the hose. But yea they bought 9 of them. I'm sure that cost some coin.

No overtime, no sick days, no vacations, no strikes, they show up on time every day and no retirement pay for 40 years after they are junked.
I don't understand the city picking up leaves. It is our cities goal that there is less stuff being picked up. YOu must not have any greenies in your area. And that sucking truck looks painfully slow to me and a boring job.
I sold my loader last year to a member on here from Roanoke, VA.
Seems the city stopped doing that and it opened up a lot of business for the little guys like us.
I would have kept it if I really had a need for it.
Here @ PSU, the local municipalities have been migrating to these rigs for 3-4 seasons now. Immediately made a (3) man process an easy (1) employee task. They do a much better job than the old leaf loader way, are much more efficient, and save money in the long term. Upfront cost is large, but the savings come in many different ways...
