I plan on making something to keep someones pants from getting sucked into the intake. Dont want it too small that it gets clogged up with leaves all the time though. I also want it to be removable so if we are at a job where we need the hose for some reason I can take it off and throw the hose on.

Can you take a closer picture of your hose swing arm and where it pivots and articulates? That is the only thing I dont like about the Giant Vac, kind of a short hose support arm.

Other option would be on the toungue but I would need something fabricated to mount it over the battery box. I still have to build the leaf box (and buy the loader - probably a BG HTR 18). I'll throw some photos up when I get 'er done.
That vacuum has been used on that truck since 1998, never a problem. I like it on back of the truck or trailer so that you can back up to the pile, or load from the curb

Got two more pictures yesterday. First one is of the "typhoon" in action with semi wet leaves and the next one is of a "shredder ring" I made for the 16hp giant vac leaf vac. I think its more psychological then beneficial.
