Here's the leaf loader and the makeshift setup ready to go this week. Going to get the box finished on the dodge also for cleanups.

Looking forward to hearing how the loader works. My tiny budget loader works well but it's just not fast enough. However it fills the need for now. If leaves become a bigger priority one of those loaders and a nice walk behind blower are in order. They're just faster and more efficient although cost a pretty penny. The price of efficiency.

Yeah, I agree, leaf removal keeps us pretty busy for a month or so, and I really never wanted to spend the money on a leaf loader but I really just got one to make it easier on my crew, leaf time can be kind of a gloomy point of the season especially for the crew so I figured it might help the morale and also help us be more effient so that's a plus right there. As far as the loader, we used it one day last week and it worked well, but it was a sloppy trial run with a crappy tarp setup, so basically we were blowing leaves all over the place haha, but I should have both dump inserts ready to rock next week, just when we are starting full cleanup schedules.

Yeah that's for sure! I allready replaced the rear bumper 2 years ago from backing up and onto a big stump that I dumped. That was a $300 aftermarket bumper. I think I will keep it dented for awhile haha. But anyway the last snow storm of last year I was plowing and I never hit anything in my truck plowing in 5 years but the last storm I backed into 2 trees and backed into and demolished a mailbox haha. I must have been in a hurry that night.
