I have been watching this thread since it started, Plan to post picks of my rig next week, will be completing the truck sides tomorrow, as cleanups will start this coming week for me. I live in PA. Somewhere on her is a pick of my 25hp tow behind leaf vac from last year but I can't figure out how to find it: can anyone help me?

Leaf Equipment
98 Chevy 3500 Dump Stake Body 8ft by 12 ft box by 6ft high
98 Chevy 2500 Pickup Truck
16 Foot Enclosed Trailer
2004 Giant Vac 25hp trailer mounted leaf vac
2 (8) hp little wonder blowers
Backpack Blowers
Echo PB 650 Unit #1
Echo PB 651H Unit #2
Echo PB 755T Unit #3
2 Exmark Lazers (one grass gobbler bagger, one accelerator industries bagger)
rakes, tarps, etc
Owner, one employee, one sub-contractor that supplies me labor himself, his brother, and his employee, in exchange for me sucking up his leaf piles on his own customers properties...Excellent deal for the both of us. Got to get all the leaves up before the Snowplowing starts...

I can't wait to post pics of mine. I still have to finish it, but it's close. I need to finish soon because leaves are starting now. It just keeps raining. Soon enough!

Here are a couple of pics from last week. Leaves are really coming down quick here now, we are gonna have some huge piles next week!

New to our leaf cleanup gear this year is the leaf plow...works great so far. It has really cut down on our tarping.

I look forward to seeing other leaf setups!

I see Synergetic found you too. We have one of the others. PS your setup is nearly identical to ours.

Those leave plows save so much time. How are you like the toro? Nice dodge....what made you go with a 2500 srw instead of a 3500 drw??

The leaf plow is saving us a lot of time, we should have bought one sooner!

The toro is great. The cut is excellent (even at high speed), it's very comfortable, and the bagger works great. Hate to say it, but it is a far superior machine compared to our old JD 757.

We went with a SRW for snowplowing purposes. We didn't want to risk traction issues with dual wheels and the extra width would make it difficult for some of the accounts we do. We may look into a dual rear wheel when we replace our oldest truck. Also, parking would be an issue for us right now.
