View Full Version : Load/Unload

For everyone that uses a reese hitch mounted swing away leaf vac...
Has anyone ever tried to unload there trucks by swinging away the loader and sucking the leaves out of the bed? On giant vacs website they have a video of some one unloading a 3/4 ton this way. I know it would definately be slower than a dump but by how much? The reason I am asking this is because I have a f250 that doesn't dump and I would like to know if i could get away with unloading with the loader until I buy a dump trailer down the road.

I don't have a swing-away leaf vac like that, but I know someone who does. It seems to suck the leaves up well when loading the truck.

I'd think that it would suck everything up even easier when it's all shredded in the truck bed...

Just watch where you're shooting the stuff:)

Its like everything else that we automate.

Started with tarp and pickup.
Bought leaf loader, that was great. Unloaded by hand
Then turned vac around, that was so much better
Then got a dump..

by me the dump people are anal and would not like us unloading with a leaf loader
