    I want to add a Leaf Loader for leaf season. I have looked at Lesco 16hp unit. I want to use it with my 6x10 DUMP TRAILER w/landscape gate.

    Here is the PROBLEM. We can't figure out a way to mount it to the truck or trailer. Trailer has a crank jack on the tongue that won't allow mounting on A frame of tongue or tailgate of truck. Anyone have any alternate mounting ideas??

    Might be cheaper to change the style of jack on your trailer.

    what kind of trailer? You would probably be better off getting a side crank jack and mounting it how i have mine mounted.
    If you wanted, i have the hitch swing out mount that im never going to use; if the price is right...
