    For those of you who have your leaf loader mounted on your trailer with the discharge going into a dump bed on the truck. What method or material do you use where the chute goes into the leaf box? Flexible tube or rubber boot. If you use flexible hose where did you obtain it? The good and bad of each.

    have a flex tube 8" from J-Thomas connecting loader on trailer to bed of truck. Works fine with simply a hole cut in the plywood tailgate.

    If you put any serious hours on a loader at all the debris is going to wear threw the rubber and have a blow out. I use 3-4 hoses every fall but mine runs all day long 6 days a week in the season.

    I use mine fairly seriously 6-7 days a week and my hose is going on into its third season.
