I have tossed the Big Red handle and added a striaght handle with the Life with Ease grip. Then I use the Life w/ease grip and the Life with ease collar to hold the rake handle against my arm( with some modification)
I'd post a picture but can't figure out how to do it on the new board.

I do charge an initial cleaning fee, but..... I like the idea of the "pro-rated amount for the remainder of the month."   I was nervous about meeting with a potential new client, and on top of the initial cleaning fee asking for the remainder of the month. But I see that all of you do so, I think that I will try that today!


  
"The time difference between doing it right and skipping part is nearly always very small.  The risk/reward ratio is unfavorable."

I do not use the sketch to skip any parts of a yard In fact, once I complete a service I do a Quick "sweep" of the entire yard which usually ends up in finding a couple more land mines. Cheesy  I also do find my self saving the heavy areas for last too just for the same reason.
As for that handle, ...that's on my list now! Grin

Scott, Same idea as I use only the handle is much longer that way my arm is almost straight so I don't have to bend over to put the pan on the ground.

Jeff, What?

That handle has lasted through 4 big reds over the years.  It lost it's plastic wing nuts so I have to use vice grips to undo the hose clamp that holds it on.

Jeff speeks Geek.  Have your picture uploaded somewhere.  It can be your website storage, or a free picture storage site.

Click the "Insert Picture" thingy underneath th "I" box.  Paste the address (url) of where the picture is stored in between the sets of brackets.  The cursor is automatically defaulted to be where it's supposed to be.  Preview first to make sure it works before posting.
