i have a dump truck that i am looking for a kit or the best way to fabricate a system that will hold leaves in the dump. going to buy the system to suck the leaves up and run it through a 10 or 12" tube to load it into the dump. it would have to have mesh or screen on top to allow air to go through it. does anyone know where i can buy a kit? that is what I'm actually looking for. but if there is no kits, then i will make it with wood, but where can i get a mesh top? thank you for your time

I'll second that. We build up the sides with plywood with the mesh tarp across the top. Inexpensive and works great.

I have a steel frame box with wooden sides on it and a metal mesh top on it. I have used it for three seasons and have had no problems with it. I will post some pics of it a soon as i figure out how to resize them.
