Not close to full blown leaf mania yet but looks like we’ll wrap up early Dec this year. Last year many of the Oaks held on until Christmas and beyond.

I know some of you kids like the br800 cause they’re comfy but nothing moves huge piles, especially when they get frozen or snow covered, like the big Echo.

still hoping for BR900 or BR1000 at GIE

Just to get a jump on it. Yea I know a Windstorm or Hurricane can move piles faster but standers just don’t work on heavily landscaped props with multi level access and fence/ hedge lines

and push blowers just suck

Here I am thinking that I would like to try out a Br450
Stepping back. From the Br800.
The days of making and moving big piles are in the past.
I mulch the leafs.
By sounds some on here need to think about how the leafs will be done.
Once the blowers are banned.
Having to use a battery blower.

What do you do when mulching leaves completely into dust still leaves an inch of dust on the ground?

That's why I do very little blowing.
To avoid the piles.

I'm only there to get the heavy
I will be back next week.
As the season winds down.
I will then start getting the leafs that trapped in shrubbery.

I also charge the same as a weekly cut.
I think fall leafs are easier than spring mowing.

You can mulch right up until The Big Drop here, usually late Nov early Dec. Then you pile curb-side or haul to the dump if you're unlucky enough to miss Municipal trucks. The Oaks drop fast and furious when they go. No way you're mulching all that, especially if it's frozen or snow dusted. Good thing about Oaks is leaves dry fast
