    i saw a guy that had a nice leaf set up... it was a drop down gate out of his pick up bed with high sides on the bed of the truck (some kind of material for the sides not wood sides) any way he had walkers that he could back up the trailer and then drop that gate from his truck into his trailer and back up that and dump the walker straight into the truck bed. i have looked and looked but never seen what company made it. just wonderin if anyone has seen this or knew who makes a set up like that.

    Here is a picture of something similar to what you're talking about. I think it was a guy from this site.

    Personally I think walkers are too slow, but here are a couple of setups that I have seen. A local lco here has a trailer that has the ramp welded onto the front end of the trailer so that it can be paired with any truck and be able to dump into the back of it. They use a cabover isuzu and dump onto the flatbed. A friend back home used all walker mowers and bagged everything, he had live bottom trailers made and would dump on the front half and carry mowers on the back half. Than at the end of the day kick on the walking floor and it would move all the grass off of it. There are several ways to go, but probably the easiest would be the scissor lift baggers.

    6 dumps and you are forking grass or leaves. I prefer the leaf loader and fill it as full as you want.
