This yard filled my truck up 1 1/2 times as well, thought I would share a pic or two. I should get a video of my loader in action to post on my website.

I am thinking about boxing in the back of my trailer temporarily so I can tarp some in when needed, also I need a hatch on top of my loader box so I can get in and mash it down, anything to save gas $$

Nice, What hp is that loader ? Looks like a money making rig there. Was the truck empty when you started that pile and how full was it after ?

Also, how do you price your curbside pickup? What has worked for you?
