xclusive--the chipper cap has four vents, two on each side in the front of the cap. We installed two back vents with mesh tarp, and we installed a mesh "skirt" just behind the door. It won't fill completely full, but it is very close. The nice thing is there is very limited dust and blowout. We haven't had a suction issue, but might if the loader had more CFM. Still a work in progress, but much better than just a tarp top.

Can you take a couple of pics showing the mesh installed? I have a total of 6 vents and would like a way to make less debris shoot through the vents.

This is a picture of our rig from a few years ago. She's about double the height now, with a vented tarp on top.

Wanted to buy an isuzu dump but the cost is way to high. Instead I got this 14 ft dump trailer and built it up. Works like a champ and cost a whole lot less.

Thumbs up Leaf rigs

Outdoor Concepts,

If you still have your rig together - could you snap a few close-up pics of the back of your trailer. (specifically how you have the vac mounted) I am trying to combine all of the positives that I have seen in this thread and make a new rig for next year.

Thanks for all of the really good pic guys!!

Learning Process

I just purchased a leaf loader and self propelled blower. No more bagging! Thanks for all that have posted. I'm getting some great ideas for my "leaf box". The one shown is a "trial and error rig". Should be closing on my Isuzu NPR Monday! This 18' trailer is going to be used as a backup. However, will build up to collect leaves. The Billy Goat loader is a beast! 34 HP of pure muscle. Sometimes had to run it half throttle!

How big is the base or footprint of that 34hp loader. Been loking at a bigger one but still want to put it on the back door somehow. Also how is that 18hp blower with no reverse. I think the little wonder will sell more with the reverse...Thanks
