No, the smaller loader comes off now. We put it on first, so that we can still pull a trailer with that truck. Once were into full cleanups we put the larger on on and run 2 trucks.

Yeah gogetter, she'll hold a max of 25yds of leaves.

Darn, thought maybe you were gonna say that you were upgrading to the larger unit and wanted to sell the smaller one.

I just took a closer look and see that you even have marker lights or reflectors up on the front corners of the box, nice detail.
How tall is the box? I'm jealous.

I think the sides are either 6 1/2' or 7' heigh. The truck is 10' 4" with the box on.

Let's see some other rigs on here. Want to see what everyone else's set up is like.
