Some of our leaf collection equipment

Here are some pics. for you guys. The leaf box holds 20 yds. and hinges @ the top. The little wonder blower hangs on the tailgate and is removed w/a skid loader, using a short chain and the factory installed lift point. We remove the curved pipe first. The small acess door, in the back of the leaf box, the emergency rest room door. Good for those days when you just rent your lunch. We vented the top of our box w/metal lathe and it has been working well so far, w/only dust on the road and truck.

That is a pretty cool rig! I thought it was on a pick up at first. Top kick/ Kodiak instead. Use it for plowing in the winter?
