So how do you do leaves? Do you just use a blower and a rake? Or does your friend loan you his trailer? When we do fall cleanup,(if it isn't a curb side pickup), we use 2 trucks and to trailers. One with all the equipment and one with a vac attatched to a dump.

funny story, the box was originally designed to fit inside a dumptruck. the dump truck is broken down now so i had to go to plan b. the trailer is 16 feet long any my box is 6.5 feet long. i have the box on the back end with the vac and keep all the rakes, pitch forks, tarps both little wonders and all our back packs on the front section of the trailer. the next night when were down well drop the box and the vac and load up the mowers and cut whatever lawns we blew the day before

build a frame out of 2x4's at the size of 4'x6' and put a sheet a plywood over it, next drill a hole in the 4 feet from each side, and then a foot or so down. then do the same except a foot or so from the bottom. hook a chain to each hole that is about 20 feet long each. put this contraption in your box near the back. next run the chains out the door of your box. fill up the box with leaves, when your done back up to a tree, hook the chains to the tree, open the door, and drive away, the board should pull the leaves out if it works like it does with brush in an open trailer.
