I have a 4' by 5' angle iron frame with a hog panel welded to it. I then bolted 3/4" plywood to it. That's held upright in front with a chain attached to the corners. Where I dump has pieces of concrete with cables attached for pull off's

I mow all the lawns after a cleanup, it gives it a finish, manicured look and the machines suck up whatever leaves you might have missed.

You are definitely headed in the right direction!

I would love a dump trailer. This is a new business adventure for me. I have mowed forever but this is the first year for leaf removal. I am just going to see how it goes, and see if I can justify spending another 5 or 6 k

I would say maybe 10 minutes maybe a little longer, I don't really pay attention. It didn't really bog down that much. I was pleased with the performance overall. It will suck as fast as I can rake them to it.

That's awesome. I hope to get enough leaf work to afford one of those. Maybe next year.
