Pull it with my F150. Yes, it is a slow moving vechical permit. I'll get pics as soon as the leaves allow.

The floor moves in reverse. The leaves come out in a big brick basically, takes about 20 mins.

With a different running grear under the box one could make it street legal and easy to back up.

How did you get that to go in reverse? We have an old Rex box ourselves. I see that you also took the 3 beaters out as well. Ours would unload from one end to the other end of box, approx 3 min. You said 20 min...........The leaves sound like they are falling (rolling back) instead of staying in a brick state as you stated.

I think that is something for the farm not the street. i would not want to tow it does not look safe. save the blower and get some thing better.

that is going to be a lot of weight if those leaves are wet. I would get a bigger truck to pull it dont go fast my farther in law owns a farm and when we cut corn and fill our wagons it sways back and forth bad and that is only going 10-12 mph with the 110 hp 4x4 tractor. Good idea would like to see it work.

chopper wagons were made for the farm those axles have no brakes which is fine with a tractor but you pulling it around all leaf season is going to be no good. in early august i hauled a two of them at the same time about 5 miles down the road and i definetly knew they were back there

Wow, that looks scary! That tarp is gonna blow up like a balloon! Doesn't look like something I would want to take on the road IMO.

yea definetly be careful...it looks pretty top heavy i dunno how it is taking corners i know its not like a normal trailer obviously with the way that it is setup...have you ever used it before?

I have been using this set up for three years now. I have no problem towing pulling this with my F150 (full or empty) I Can empty this thing in 20 mins when it is completly full of wet compacted leaves (aprox. 8-10 tons). No Problems. I Need to redue the roof and give it a paint job, I see other contractors and they are spending more time and fuel running back and forth to there dump site, with there small 5x 10 dumps that they sometimes have you shovel out when it gets wet and heavy.

As for backing up I hook it directly to my boss plow frame and I can steer this anywhere I want.

My dump truck doesn't have a tongue weight and it won't scare children. In your defense, the capacity would be nice.

Of course, I can't see why this thing has to be filled all the way up, either. I think it'll be alright.

Woah 20,000lbs is a lot of weight there. I guess you can pull it off with low tounge weight because you have an axle up front. We pulled a 10,000 lb enclosed with my uncles 04 F150 and it squated like a ***** even with 40lbs of air in the bags.

i love hereing the people talk about things that arn't from farming comunites. around here, that would be no big deal going down the road. there is always tractors, combines, etc. moving all around. there was a old farmer that died a few years ago that always drove his allis tractor to town. he wore a dress shirt and tie everyday. plowin the field with his tie on.

There is very little tongue weight. The "fun" is getting to to move and getting it stopped.
