Looks like you could use a front end loader?!

Actually, the John Deere crawler, in the pic, works best when piling up the leaves. When the area is wet, only a track machine can climb that pile.

Bailey - that looks good! I thought about doing that same thing but adding a short set of legs on the bottom for two reasons: 1 so it would stand up on its own and 2- to help prevent the possibility of it riding up over the pile. ( have y'all ever has a problem with that?)

Once are chain connection broke, we pulled the chain out before we realized what happened. We tried to put it back in and bury the chain. It would not work. As long as the chain is centered under the leaves it works great. I worry that it might try to rise up when it's not fully loaded, but we have had no problems since we fixed the chain.

Thanks for posting the picture. We normally just use a pallet but we want to do more chipping into trailer.
