They may not have the answer, when I heard about the law for plow dates, I asked well over a dozen officers, including supervisors and a towns chief, none of them could give me an answer. I actually pulled over when I saw a statie from the truck team, he confirmed the plow law for me and gave me the citation number for it.

I would hate to get in a rear end collision with the leaf vac mounted to the front, im sure an attorney would love to sue your company and insurance claiming that it effected your bumpers propper crush rate.

We are in mass and I don't think it is legal to mount on front. But for that fact it is also illegal to let your hitch hang out the back of your truck when not towing a trailer. WTF anything for our state to make money off re working guy.

Do you leave the loading hose attached while you drive? If so where do you put it.

I am debating whether to front mount my loader but I don't know what to do with the hose and reattaching the loading hose at each property seems like a time killer.

I just got finished building my new box on the 12' dump today. (this was the box last year) It will hold 16cy this year. I have my BG loader mounted on the front and always leave the hose connected.
