I have to mesh the whole top.. Man you don't even know the massive air flow... If I use the heavy mesh screen and bolt and washer it down that baby isn't going anywhere I think my box will blow up before that comes off lol

All I've had is wet oaks, maples, and pines. I got the 18hp little wonder, I am a one man op.....use to have to find someone to help run a blower and load tarps with me. Now that I got walk-behind blower and loader, I can do 2 yards a day by myself.

Thanks man....I've done 14 cleanups so far, got a 5 acre cemetery to do this weekend, then a nice list of 15 and growing waiting for me.....definitely takes a toll on me, I just keep going, knowing I will be sitting on my butt soon, wishing I was working. Snowplowing is looking good, just not looking forward to it...lol, and next season, everyone is aboard and growing. Finishing up my 3rd season.

There's a video of it in action... I'll get some videos of it hogging piles, that was our first day and I was leery of the screen blowing off..

I can get em piled up like you but would be nice to have them closer, that's when I been using a backpack blower to feed it, I can keep feeding it from 10ft back as I am bringing piles closer. Looks like the, you rake em' I take em' would be a nice quick way for you to make a few extra bucks.
