Executive, thats a nice setup you got there. I think i'm the only one who cant get many leaves into my trailer. Do you suck up leaves? or once they have been shredded by a mower? Take a look at my setup. http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=250869

Yea there is a 10 or 12 ft hose that come off the leaf loader on the tongue of the trailer. We can pack 20 cu yards of leaves in there. If I can offer any advice for your set up it would be to mount you loader to the front of the trailer so you dont have to take it on and off to unload. I can send just one guy to dump ours at the end of the day. Saves on labor cause Im not making it back with dump runs.

You have to be careful around cars . They are great for larger areas.

That won't be happening. I put in alot of hours for that setup. I'm solo, so when i go to the dump, i just pull the pin, and get my brother to take it off with me. I would imagine that i would dump once a week. I chose the back of the trailer because my streets are kinda tight, so i would rather back into a pile then pull along side a pile. Plus the tongue weight and a few other things. Overall i'm very happy with the setup, but a little disappointed with the shredding ability.
