    Here is my leaf setup. I wanted to make it easily interchangeable, so what we did is built sides and barn swinging style doors for the summer. To make the changeover easy, we used 2 trailer hitch receivers in the corners and made the door frames slide into them and welded a lock nut on the inside, so we slide the door in and bolt it in the receiver. then there is a short strap that bolts the top of the door frame to the sides to make the doors sturdy. Now for the Leaf vac I didn't want to take it off eveytime i dumped it, so we came up with a door that hinged at the top, so when we dump the vac will simply swing away with the door. It was costly to build since the steel for the sides and both sets of doors was $1,000 but it was well worth it! it takes about 45 minutes to switch from summer to fall with this setup. Once the doors are switched with the bobcat you simply have the wooden sides to slide into the stake pockets and we use pvc elbows and pipes to make the suports for the mesh top and we use bungee chords to hold the mesh over the sides.

    This is my first year using a leaf loader. A few weeks ago I bought a 16 HP Little Wonder truck loader. Its a great machine, and has plenty oh power. However its kind of a pain in the neck to unload...
