I rarely see leaf loaders out here in the southwest...We just rake onto tarps and put it in the trailer.

anyone having trouble w/ the leaves coming out after they sit for a day or 2? Im thinking I will have to dump daily whether its full or not, and btw my bed goes really high, the problem is that the vac chews them up really fine and they are starting to decompose quick

u got wet leaves! (sounds like)
or moist

I never have this problem with salt... but i just jerk the truck a little bit......like forward fast then stop or vice versa.......
i dont usually load leaves into my dump. unless my pick up is full but when i do load it up they sometimes sit for a couple days or so not too much of a problem....

Here is our Leaf setup this year. The most efficient setup for us thus far.

Removed front cage and slide on 8ft Bri Mar dump insert.
