    Has anyone used their Billy Goat debris loader by utilizing the tailgate mount it comes with. Pros and Cons would be nice. I have had mine mounted to my trailer for 3 years but am removing it becuase i purchased a 6.5 x 12 dump trailer this season :cool2:. Not sure if I want to mount it to the new trailer or try the tail gate option.

    If you've got a used (not new looking) truck you can hang that unit all day long. It can dimple the tailgate if driven on bumpy roads and will definately wear paint off if hung there for long periods of time. It works great in that position though.

    I use my billygoat 16hp vac mounted on the front of my 7X16 dump trailer with 5ft sides & a conastogan wagon (sp?) style vented mesh tarp roof. Dump trailer is the way to go...I can pack 23 yards of leaf mulch in the trailer before I have to dump!
