Fivestar, I am assuming that picture is of your own billy goat leaf set up. Which model do you have? I have the 18hp BG and I think there was a flaw in my set-up because it didnt have the power I expected in some situations.

two problems with that.....

first i have an enclosed trailer.

Second, I do not have a storage shop like you and whenever i leave the trailer in my yard it can walk away.

i think i have to hook and unhook every time i come home. lifting #300 should be fun.

why not mount it to the tounge of the enclosed?. just have a rack fabricated at a fab shop or if you have a welder just make it yourself...gas is to expencive now days to take 2 trucks if you dont have to....plus we arent making that much off fall clean-ups to start with
