do you have to remove the loader to dump?

Loader was $2500, wood $100. We initially were going to use the BG swing away hitch too, but the reciever hitch is too low to the ground so the pipe wouldnt be very high up on the box. I'm fine with taking it off every time.

How much dust do those things generate? I heard it can be real dusty. I need something like that though. HOA I have had 5 acres of leaves a few inches deep and some of the trees haven't even started to drop yet.

billy goat makes extensions so you can raise the height. heres a shot of my leaf setup from a few years ago with the extension i purchased.

What size engine does that have? Is it the 12hp briggs on it? How do you like it? I was looking into a billy goat truck loader with a 10-12 briggs. (I cant remember exactly what size it was.)

Don't get the briggs shell out the extra cash for the 13hp honda. Thats what mine is. I've tried to clog it and it wont clog.

Seeing how this must increase your productivity, what do you charge per hour when this is on site. Let's say you normally charge $35 man / hour for leaf clean up, using back pack blowers, traditional dump, etc. Then you show up with this WMD and you blow through the job... what do you charge, have a minimum, etc?? Thanks I am in the Northeast, and hope to be doing leaves all winter. :)

$35 an hour and I think $45 minimum. That's all I can get around here with all the dutch people.
