got started on mine today. still have to cut the boards for the front and then bolt everything together. Right now just have it held together with nails. Have a mesh tarp for the top. 13hp Billy Goat Loader will mount on the back. BY my calculations this should be 432 cu ft of space or roughly 16 yards

I like it our old setup was a tarp to cover the back which was HORRIBLE!
But the top door is locked by the bottom door. So we cant open the top door unless we open the bottom one first
But when we really fill it up it looks like a big @$$ Block of leaves
Heres a pic. of that lol We were having venting problems so i toook like 7 pics

I've seen other people do this on here. Do the leafs all come out or do you have to prop the door open?

How many cubic yards do you think that holds? How high are those sides? We have 4 foot plywood sides on top of our 2 foot trailer sides for a total of 20+ cubic yards.

Yours looks like it would hold a ton, but I'd be nervous with how tall it is.

Honestly i really dont know how much it holds but if corey says his holds/should hold about 432 cu yrds
ours prob holds prob. almost double that!?
maybe in the 600 range idk!
I'll ask around and see....
I think the sides are 5ft or so on top of the trailer.
then prob like 4ft at the front
so its about 9-10 ft all together.
(my boss and father built it one weekend)

ahahah! But yeah its kinda weird pulling something behind you that is alot taller than you but once we get it rollin' you almost forget it back there with the exception that it is a dumb pintle hitch which all it does is bounce around.
since its tandem i can pull it with my z-71 if i really needed to.

Heres a shot of our new top on our box this year. We got tired of using a tarp, so made something a little bit more permanent. It all unbolts so we can re-use it next season. This goes on our roll-off truck with a tarco leaf sucker.
