I'm not sure, don't know enough about that option. But qustion for you, do you have a open trailor, because lot's of guys have the loader mounted on the front of there open trailor and they just get a larger pipe to shoot the leaves into the truck, it works well especially if your working by your self or just want to keep it easy. I check to see I might have a fabricated metal mount made for a leaf loader for a open trailor I could give you. But I have to check because I might have scraped it. I check at the shop tomorrow for you.

Here's the finish pics, it was a work out. Glad I could give the pole trimmers to my helpers to save my sholder from wearing out. Also a small tree we cut down.

Here's another small tree job from today, cut down a maple tree and ground out the stump. The only thing I have to say about this job is, never again will I use such a small grinder on a larger stump like this. Took me literally over 2 hrs grinding at that stump. Maybe the teeth are just to worn out.

the teeth had to be worn out on that grinder. I did 4 trees that were all alittle bigger then that last year in just over an hour. That grinder is the perfect size for that tree.

Thats good to know, I have to let the rental store know, I figured something wasn't right with that.

Ya alot of rental places do a terrible job maintaining things, which really sucks for us because it made a 25-30 min job for you turn into 2 hours. rented a plugr aerator last year and I used it for an hour albeit didnt run that well then it just died. I figured it had to either do with the oil or spark plug. Didnt want to work on there stuff so I brought it back and sure enough spark plug was fouled and the oil was low/blacker then black. So the guy drained all the oil out added new and changed the plug. I figured for paying 70.00 dollars for a half day rental that they would make sure the machines maintained.
