Leaf Loader Set-ups?

Hey guys finally got my new little wonder leaf loader yesterday, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for cheap mason dump set ups? Im going to use the tailgate mount onto the back of my mason dump. the dump already is medium height with the wood sides going up the the head ache back. I was wondering how I could make this much higher with not spending too much. Any thoughts?

I don't have any ideas to help you but at least your mounting it on something that dumps haha. Last fall I bought a billy goat leaf loader and built a leaf box on my ram2500 cummins bed and it would of been great if it held more leaves and if it dumped. The loader packed the leaves in so well it was like trying to tear down a brick wall getting it out.

I would say just get some 1/2 or 3/4 inch plywood. Get some 2x6's and screw them into the bottomsides you already have, and lay the ply down on top of it and screw the ply into the 2x6's. Same for the back and other side. Leave the top open and put down some sort of breathable fabric for the vac to be able to "breath" Should cost about $100 plus screws
