OMG it is great!
We get more space in our truck with it this way!
Gets shredded like 7 times
3 times in the mower (i guess) since there are 3 blades
then we load them with the BG leaf loader.....
Another couple times....
Yeah but it can make them kind of stubborn coming out when you dump...leaf bricks, lol

U may see the strap i have on front of box. I use that when its empty, it doesn't seat well in dump cradle, so it wabbles a bit . When it's full , no problems on wobbling, just squatting,lol


Leaves were from back yard, 36 inch gate, we tarped them out because not worth taking in mower. I usually use my 60 z to mulch them up too .

I added 2 feet to top of box because the dump charges by truck size , not cubic yards. mine holds about 14 cubic yards.

Thats great...my box on my trailer figures just over 280 cubic ft which I guess is just a bit over 10 yards.

20hp loader, been using a vac setup like this on trucks for about 25yrs always works great and never clogs. holds just about 20yds. never been stopped for having it on front, does obstruct view in one spot but it's a pain to break it down every time you move the truck. If I have to take off up tube it's just two quick bolts.

Looks like a very effective and efficient setup. Not the prettiest, but I'd bet you can get a lot done during the day with that.

On another note, how do all you guys in CT not bump into each other daily?...your state's so small, I mean, you must all have tight coverage areas.

no not the prettiest(but thats alright).........but I'm big on efficiency. the loader used to be a tow behind, when I downsized a bit I went to a one truck setup. We have a lot of trees out here and proccess lots of leaves.
