Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
I used to use a blower and a tarp if they didnt want the clippings left in..Recently i picked up a backpack vac that i plan on using this season
theres thousands of models of backpack vacs so i dont wanna give a specific model since its a lower end and not sure how itll hold up

We mulch however if the customer is complaining the grass is growing too fast we have an Agri Fab lawn sweeper that we can pull while mowing to collect the clippings. The Power Flow units for my Deere units is simply not worth the expense as we may only collect clippings from a half dozen lawns a year.
