Dlong, I took your advice and brought my dump trailer up to the local welder. He is going to make me a mount so the loader will blow directly into the leaf box without any extra hoses. Should be ready in the next few days, then I will just have to build the box.

Looks like a nice enclosed. The guy I used to work for had a similar one. His was like 7.5x 16 I think. It was nice having everything right there with you. I am hoping to get a 7x14 or 16 for my self next year.

I got it way to cheap not to flip it! haha. Im going to be in it around 800 dollars!!!!!!

If i do get an enclosed, i want to get a trailer with no rivits on the side and a v-nose for a work bench and tools. I would love to get a enclosed though, dont get me wrong.

You didnt have to get anything welded, my mount was all wood last year and only cost 10 bucks. I guess metal will be better but put rubber pucks under the loader for anti vibration. I used rubber washing sink plugs from home depot last year, they are about 1/2 thick and around 3" wide, i drilled a hole right in the middle of them and put them between the mount and the loader, the trailer didnt even vibrate with them installed. Not neccisary but very helpful.


I was thinking all these pictures would get more comments. guess my work isnt too great. Haha. More people are interested in equiopment than work on here.

I had to have a mount made up because I needed to have access to the hydraulics on my dump trailer. The loader is attached to the bed and hangs over the box that holds the hydraulics. If I was mounting it on the open trailer I would have no problem but I don't have a dump truck yet, only my dump trailer.

Don't worry. You do nice work. People on here are defiantly more interested in the equipment. Last time I posted work pictures I didn't get many comments.

How the hell did you get her at that price, I inherited that lawn at 45 and could only get her up to 47, so we always did a rush job because it wasnt worth the effort at that price and double cutting almost every week. then her bitching about clippings in the beds no matter what we did (chutes were always blocked near beds and we still blew every bed). And she never wanted weeding because she had some creepy hobit that did it for her. No hard feelings, I was gonna drop her if she hadnt dropped me. How much do your guys cry about the whipping there, mine always hated that lawn
