When you have to dump, do you just slide the tube back into the box an off the loader, then pull it back out?
Do you have any pics from the back with the door opened? That came out really nice. My only concern would be that long tube clogging when sucking up wet leaves. Guess you'll find out soon enough.

BTW, my truck is a 77 F350, and the box is 8-1/2L x 5'H x 8'W

to dump the tube twists and comes right out......it is not that heavy........no pics of the back I will try to get one tomorrow......

clogging could be an issue but I think that will depend on how fast I suck up leaves....we will see....

Sorry...I have been using it now for 2 weeks....it is working great......no clogs at all, wet dry....doesn't matter...... I have hauled 25 yards (5 loads) of leaves to my dump site....so far.... I have been working my route so that I only have to dump once a day..... that may get a little tougher as the leaves get thicker.....thanks for asking

also I can have the unit on and off the truck in less that a minute now......way easier than I had hoped for....
