Ksland, does your unit mount into the receiver hitch or does it mount to the truck frame. Also, if it mounts to the hitch how do you pull your trailer. I am going to buy a swing away truck loader in the late summer and I'm unsure how I am going to mount it. I have looked at those 1 into 2 receiver adapters but am worried it will overload the hitch. Any suggestions would be very helpful.

Matt (walker) - what year is that c50? My grandpa used to have one similar to it.

Matt (mdb) - How much does that trailer hold? Look's good

ksland - I love your truck. I like the pic with it dumped up

I might have to make a leaf box and get a loader for my truck this fall...I want one bad. Here is my truck now with wood sides I just made.

im not sure how much it holds, havent figured it out yet, but i can tell you it holds a ton of leaves. since i put the chute at the very top of the box, it will fill right to the top no problem. and boy does it pack tight. dumpings a breeze, cause it just comes out in one big block.

0ryan0, it's a 1975 C50. It's suppose to only have about 5K miles on the engine since a rebuilt, but not for sure. I will post some pics soon with my newly built box for it.
