A picture of a bobcat excavator that I rented for a job, a few pictures of my leaf box and a power rake I picked up a few months ago.

I would do a solid rear door, you will have a lot of leakage from my experience with a tarp rear door. It may work out for you. Where are you mounting the leaf loader?

It doesn't put to much strain on the truck?

I have the leaf loader on my trailer. The tarp gets pinched into the tailgate so it doesn't leak. I do have some leakage where the pipe goes in. I did it this way so I can take the tarp off to haul bulk materials within the matter of a minute.

It probably does strain the truck but I've hauled 3 tons in the back a few times. I don't like it but it'll do it. With an insert full load of grass and loaded 12' trailer it doesn't barely squat. I do burn through brakes though
