On the hooking up to a pallet and pulling out the leaves, could you possibly mount a winch under the back of the trailer and use it to pull the skid/pallet and debris out where there is not a tie off spot? I would at least get it to the very back. Would probably want a pulley to avoid fraying the cable. (An idea kind of opposite of winching a vehicle on or off a trailer)

Exactly what he said.

I think I have been stuck 2 times with it. I have plowed with it since 2006.
Does much better once we load up with salt then typically don't empty the spreader until we are all done.

This is the setup we use... 18hp billy goat leaf loader and 8x16 dump trailer.
Vac stays on the trailer for Fall and Spring cleanups.

Beck, I got a few pics of how I hinged the vac tube. prett basic. I cut the tube and put a hinge on one side and fabed two tab setups on the other side for a long pin to go through. I put a small pad down on the front of the loader so the tube has a place to rest when it is down. I've been using it this way for a few years and it works great. Breaks down in prob. 30 seconds.

Attached is a picture of a rig that I saw going down the road. This vacuum is on a small 4 wheel trailer, hooked to the trailer hitch, and then lifted from the ground with cables and turnbuckles.

they are still in the catalog online, but not on the equipment specs sheet page on JDL's website, so I was curious.
