If you could have any setup what would it be.....tow behind, skid mount, swing away mount, tailgate mount?

mounted on trailer! Then when truck is full...you can use another truck to load while you dump the other one.

You forgot "front bumper mount"!! That's what I am going with. This way I don't have to take my trailer with me to clean up leaves aready sitting curb side. Last spring I had it mounted on the front of trailer deck. It worked ok, but took up space and had to haul the loader around when I did not need to.

I think you are wrong with the trailer mounted idea. How long have you been in business? Must be a rookie.:waving:

I would choose swing away with receiver running through it so I can still pull trailer. Like ksland had with his Lesco.

My ultimate setup would be two. One truck mount on the back of my f450 dump for getting up driveways and near backyards. And a huge towbehind on a larger truck for all the really big piles we bring to the curb.

KS, so it's not good to have your loader mounted to the trailer?

MLI, I have mine mounted to the A-fram of my trailer. I do like the swing out mount.
