Not to hijack this thread but will the weight of a leaf box plus leaves make the insert shaky?? Or what should I look out for?
Lastly do you find that the mesh tarp produces an abundance of dust?

In the past my box was fully enclosed with the exception of 4 vents on the 2 sides... Wasn't too bad

I bought my mesh tarp from Harbor Freight, it was $30.00? I made a frame out of 2x3's for the roof, and then screwed the mesh to that. I then bolted the whole frame to the rest of the box. Make sure that you bolt the box down to the dump insert,or else it might fall out when you dump. I will take pics soon, I pulled everything out today to get it ready for clean-ups. I also have a 6.5' dump insert and it wasn't that shaky at all, and the dust wasn't too horrific.

If you have a plow mount you could get someone to weld up a platform that slides into the plow mount to put the leaf vac on that. So you wouldn't have to worry about loading and unloading the vac everytime you had to dump.

Okay, I'm Interested to see it once you get it all set up. Our New insert is a 6.5' too!

Here is a picture of it on the ground, I keep the sides long like that so I can tighten up the mesh. The other picture is the mount we fabbed up for the leaf vac. It's nice, I can take it off after we are done with clean-ups, helps keep the weight off the tounge.

Just a picture of the top, I put some pieces of ferring on top and screw it in to help keep the mesh down.

Hey guys took a few pics today. Just some from the dump. I was pretty weighed down. Other pick is my new idea for a one man leaf loader change. I took it off to dump and put it back on by myself. Just backed my 2 trucks together and lifted. It weighs about 250. I was pumped now I don't need to rely on someone to help me
