    good stuff...they need some snow shovels to help feed that "monster"
    how many times a day do you have to dump?
    I am filling mine on average 4 times a day but have to drive 12 miles to dump and 12 back, so I have just been piling leaves and coming back as I can.

    My box is pretty tall.. We usually get 4-5 jobs in it.. We are doing a lot of city lots 1/3 acre and smaller

    I am thinking about boxing in the back half of my trailer next week, seeing as how my mower is just taking up space on the back. I leave it there for counter weight so my toungue weight isn't so bad with the loader on front. I have 4ft walls on top on my 8ft box, takes me about an hr to fill it up.

    I think I'm going to buy a 4' landscape rake to push the leaves

    I got the idea from someone else on here and only use my rake after I use the blower at the very end to get the few scragglers...works like a champ!.....will cut down on all that raking to feed it
