You never know when you are coming up with an idea, if this is the one that is going to take off. For instance, check out this product. It's called the lawn mate.

I know I would find something like this useful. Have you ever thought of inventing a product?

Check out their product here. http://mylawnmate.com

That's pretty neat! You should use that in conjunction with this....


Just slide it over the top of the lawn mate (with a bag in it), pull the drawstring tight, hook it up to your blower/vacuum and away you go!

Have you tried anything like that out yet? Any thoughts on how it works?

I haven't used that system yet, but we did go and buy a Poulan Pro blower/vac the other day... it works well, but a couple of things to remember...

- this thing IS powerful enough to pick up small rocks...
- even though it's cold outside and the heat from the (guarded) muffler feels really good, keep it away from your body... it WILL burn your clothes...
- if you're using the bag while you're using the vac, remember to ZIP IT UP.... otherwise, you may as well not have it on at all.

We're planning on trying something like that attachment sometime.... hopefully this time next year we'll have one of these bad boys.... (not necessarily this brand)

Oh! What else is on the wish list now for next year?

Zero-Turn mower 52" (don't really care what brand right now)
Walk behind (at least 32")
Gas hedge trimmer (currently have electric)
Backpack blowers
Gas powered Stick edger
a second pressure washer
Gopher Software

That's a start, anyway...

Looks good, if you bag your leaves.

When I had my previous lawn company, I never used a bag, tarped them up, took them to landfill.

Do you guys leave the bags for the homeowner?
