    If you are able to haul to the woods or curb 2 people could have that done in 3 hours max with the right equipment so your hourly charge.

    $300-$350 to get everything to the woods...$400 to get everything to the street and suck it up with my loader. (rough figures without actually walking the property and inspecting all the bed areas but the volume of leaves doesn't look overwhelming)

    I wouldn't touch it until it was dryer. Its a major pain to do those wet buggers. Can't answer you on price because it depends on many fatctors of my business and the way I do leaves.

    That is very light leaf cover. I could blow out the beds, and vac ita ll up with my z and be out of there in 1.5 hours. If i did it we, then maybe 2. Looks like an easy one to me. I would be at $275-$325 for that i suppose. Tough to tell by just pics though.

    i guess my other post didn't go through earlier. i left some stuff out of the first post.

    no leaves can be dumped over the perimeter wall. about 500 feet of stone wall had to be blown out, 5 to 10 feet of prickers and vines flank the wall on either side.

    all pine trees need to have their skirts lifted and raked/blown out

    all leaves to be dumped 100 feet into the woods behind the house

    hard to tell, but it was all wet leaves. a nice soupy slimey mess on the tennis court.

    we have a 3 man crew with the following tools:
    52 exmark rider with new bagging system. brand new.
    big husky backpack
    echo pb620 backpack
    billygoat 9hp blower
    the obvious hand tools.

    so knowing that, now what would you bid. property is a little over an acre.
