Who cares what it looks like, if it fits the leaves then get r done. I am making a box for my truck. I am going to paint it though.

Oh im not about to say anybodys box/rig looks bad......
i just thought it would be cool to see what other peoples set up looks like in different states/ areas

--Also it could give others the opportunity to get ideas from others (for their box they are making or are gonna make)
this is a win win situation!

Right now our new 2010 Chev 3500HD Dually with an 8ft dump is in the shop getting a new 9 1/2 ft Western MVP put on it. As soon as we get it back we'll build a new box and attach our new 16HP Trac Vac to it.

Don't say I'm not doing my part to end the recesssion.

how well do the plywood sides hold up to all that power? I have a similar loader that I need to build a box for and am worried about blowing the sides out of it, and how has it held up over the years? I don't want to rebuild it very season.

I Say build it good the first time!!! May take a little longer but it wil pay off in the long run! We Build ours like a House! So its held up pretty good for us. Would you believe this rig is already 5 years old?
Use good material and nice brass screws and reenforced the corners and walls where the boards meet!

Also If you vent your box right the walls wont explode. But with a 26hp you can really do some damage! So we have made a couple changes to ours! On the top of the trailer its all covered in wood. So our vents are on the sides as shown. But we just added a "Funny Car Style" Vent on the top of it.
So when the loader is turned on The Flap on the top of the box goes up (by air pressure from the loader) Then when we pull off the flap goes back down.

Found a sketch of the box before we made it.

I give you guys credit that have to haul leaves. That is an impressive set-up. I am glad I don't haul any leaves. Just grind them or push them to the curb for the city pick up. Leaf season is a coming.
