    I live in Ontario Canada and am looking for an assist from people sweeping in similar climate zones. (North East US or Michigan) I have just picked up a lot sweeper in November and was able to pick up a few lots before Mid December. I am busy pounding on doors and making intros. The sweeper will do 50000 sq ft per hour and thats fine but I am absolutely unsure on what to expect for spring cleanup. Do I figure on 2 X or 3X the sweep time for spring clean up during a normal winter season? Appreciate your assist.
