Been awhile since i last posted... been really busy. Here's an F450 2004 I picked up from a local mulch and compost distributor. It has 56k miles and has been kept up nicely. It can carry 12 yards of mulch. It will be lettered up in the near future. And some pics of some of our showcase lawns cut in the early summer.

Sweet looks like you need an extended tongue for the trailer.

thats correct. but i can pull it with the f250 until i look at doing that. they want $1,500 to extend it. i was also looking at having them make a platform for a leaf loader to sit on so then i wouldnt need two trucks to do leaves.

Love that new truck Stickle. I'm in the same boat as you only I don't have two trucks, I have two trailers. I have to take the enclosed trailer out with the equipment to do the cleanup and make a big mound of leaves. Then I head back and get my dump trailer with the vacuum mounted on the tongue. I'm wasting a lot of time doing this. Fortunately 90% of my work is within 4 miles of my house.....but still a big time waster! A local outfit near me runs similiar setups as you with the dump / trailer. They mount their vacuum up on the cab shield and build the box up to the top of the vacuum. They run the shorter exhaust tube so the box isn't super high. I imagine it would only be a pain when refueling (assuming they have electric starts on their units).

I always keep my eye open for a dump like yours. I've often thought about finding one with an L or I pac and have my father in law who is a metal fabricator make the toolbox on one side of the truck, then have a platform on the other side to mount the vac (so basically it would be between the cab and the dump.

Thanks for the compliments guys. Really liking the truck. It needed a wash at first, but now its as good as new! It will be a great asset to the company, that's for sure. Hope everyone is having a good week... it has been raining here for the past 3 days straight.

Here are a few more random work pictures over the past summer/fall. I am going to look at a 3-4 yr old 18hp Billy Goat Debris Loader this morning. He said he used it for one season and probably only has 50 hours on it. Name:  dennisbackyard.jpg
