It used to be very common to mount the vac on the front. It was pretty standard to have it mounted on a Fisher plow mount. These days I'm seeing more mounted on the tail gate. It is sweet to be able to nose right up to a pile, but the long horizontal rigid run of pipe can be a pain to clear if it clogs. I'm holding off mounting my leaf loader until after I'm done with full cleanups on my regular customers. After that I may mount mine on the rear of my dump trailer and go chase piles...or not.

Thats the same way we get our leaves out!
How does your box load?? good?
Im only asking because the discharge pipe is on a slant/slope going down...
Nice set up man!
I really like those trailers with the side ramp! For this reason

I wonder you could have put chains on the end of the gate.....(after you lift the gate like 5in. So its equal with the rest of the trailer)
and extended the box all the way out
to get more room in your box.....

I dont think the cops would mind..... prob would just have to all some more tow lights on the side or somethin.

Not really. But i do have an extra mesh tarp that i think i'm going to use on the back. i contemplated making barn doors with plywood but opted to see how this works first.
