Thanks guys.

The truck it is going to be loading is a 2001 Isuzu nqr with a 12x8x5 dump. We are going to hopefully extend the sides up a bit if we have time, but the leaves are coming quickly.

make my 16hp, look small

syzer
10-31-2006, 08:24 PM
Its certainly huge =).

BSDeality,

I have read very little about them, how well do they work?

I'll never be without one again. I have one on my Gravely 260Z. It is a HUGE time saver on the big jobs. If you have a leaf sucker that big, you could certainly benefit from having a plow to push them to the sucker. I've pushed piles literally 10'x40' and 6' tall. Look at a JRCO, they run about $450 I believe, worth every penny. I have posted pictures of mine on here too.

Here is a shot of mine from today.

Just out of curiosity what does one need a sucker that big for on a truck that is relatively small? Wouldn't a 25 or 30 hp gasser have worked just as well?

syzer
10-31-2006, 08:56 PM
Wow, that is a pretty impressive pile of leaves. I might have to give it a try!

Godzilla,

The truck isn't that small, that box that the blower is blowing into can hold 33 cubic yards of leaves. When you do large apartment complexes this is the fastest and easiest way to get a lot of leaves moved quickly. The hose on that leaf vac are 18" and the vac is huge so maybe thats why it makes the truck look small?

Here are some more pictures of my leaf plow from last year.

Hey BS, your right man. Having this loader we need those leaf rakes! I think we are going to pick one or two up before the leaves really hit! Thanks for the pointer!


Thanks Redmax =).

Geez, 99hp diesel...what's the CFM on that thing? You'll be sucking up small rodents if you're not careful. :weightlifter:

small rodents? try basketballs, newspapers, children!

Syzer, I'm sure you'll love the plow when you get it, Depending on how it mounts for hustlers you might want to reinforce the mount bar. Otherwise the bar gets turned into a banana after a couple hours of use and it effects the use of the plow. I have some detail shots of how I reinforced and mounted mine if you'd like.

That thing is a BEAST!!! How much $$$ was it?

jtkplc:

Heh, I am not sure of the cfm but at only 1500 rpm its crazy. It will suck up cats and dogs at 1500. If you hit the rake on it, you have to turn the rpm down to get it off or you will break it. The guy we bought it off of told us to be careful it will suck up the cast iron water meter caps and throw them =)

BS:

That would be cool, I am thinking maybe of mounting it on our small 36" wright stander for maneuverability. Please show the pics.

mkwl:

We got it for a steal, 4500.00. Its only 2 years old and still has a year warranty on it. Cost over 25k in 2004.

this is how I modified my bracket. If you go on JRCO's website and look at the mount bar you will see how mine is different. The bar for my Gravely was 55" wide, and about 48" from caster arm to caster arm where it was mounted originally. That 48" gap was too much and I would bend the bars into bananas. Then the vertical pieces would get bent backwards (from pushing big piles deep into the woods). So I cut the bar down and welded a brace across the vertical pieces to re-inforce it. Then I bolted it to a universal pintle hook mount. I can dial in the height on different machines with this set up. It is really solid now and more versatile.

Hey, Where did you find a steal like that.

Im looking at the npr hd or nqr. Whats your GVW on that truck? Whats the tare weight and whats the payload etc.

thanks soo much

We got lucky, i was stumbling around on the net and happened upon it at the actual manufacturer.

We are located in Bowley Quarters which is close to White Marsh.

The NQR hasn't been lettered because we just haven't had the time to take it over there and get it done. It needs to be done ASAP! It sucks running around with nothing on the side to match our NPR SLT. We might be switching the dump body over to an FRR this winter when we get a bit more time. The NQR gvw is 18k. I forget how much it is that the truck can actually haul, but I believe its about 12k or 12.5k until it hits gvw.

Another one! Man you have an awesome leaf setup!!!!!!!

wait wait wait, the green one, is it for sale or are you keeping both?

Thanks

Why are you going to an frr??

syzer
11-06-2006, 10:57 PM
Thanks Signature!

CrewCut:
At the moment neither is for sale. I think we may sell the yellow one but I am not sure yet. We are going to go with an frr because the nqr just doesn't have the oomph we want when we have a huge load of soil/mulch/retaining wall block etc. and towing a skid steer on a trailer. Its by no means bad, it is just kind of slow going up hills like the key bridge or some of them on 695 etc. It think the frr will handle the slopes much better. Not to mention it looks much cooler.

Well just keep me in mind,

The Ftr is nice too but they are expensive.

That yellow one is the exact setup my city uses. They have five F-550's with Huge Dumps on them, and 5 of the yellow suckers and do along the curbs and such.

99HP? Why didnt they go all the way and make it 100HP? Seems a little weak to me!!LOL Just kidding Better watch out that thing might accidentially suck up one of the complaining employees!!:laugh: :laugh:

There's an idea...have the loader lettered on each side saying "suggestion box"...employee sticks arm into loader to drop off a complaint and poof! What complaint? Employee? Never heard of him.:laugh:

Will do. Ftrs are nice, but they are huge and wont fit the dump body we currently have.

UpNorth:
I know isnt it great hehe.

stuffdeer:
Sweet, do you have any pics? Thats what I think we will be doing with this one.

Hehe, been thinking of that =).
