    What are your leaf removal setups? About how many cubic yards can you fit? I have a 15 cubic yard dump trailer that I am buying a 16 horse vacuum for, along with 2 redmax 8000's. I plan on going out on a all out assault on advertising (within means of course). But do you guys thinks I should put side extensions on? If so how much bigger should I go? I have been told by a few to do so, but I wanna get some more opinions. Thanks guys

    May help if you can post a pic of current set up. Sounds like you're really getting ready to do some serious leaf vac'in and make some payup payup payup
    Look up Walker talkers rig. I think he had one that was pretty efficent.

    i'm no expert at all, but i think a full enclosure is your best bet for the vacuum box. Thats what i am doing next year when i get my vac.

    My setup right now is just the dump trailer I explained, I just upgraded from a non-dump. But I don't do landscaping, I do junk and yard waste removal. But I think fall cleanup could be a very profitable business if I play my cards right. The loader won't get into the shop for another couple weeks. But I will play around with some setups when I get it. I also order a swing mount with it. If I can't find a good usage for the swing mount, I'll send it back. But I wanted to get some good setups/pics before I start the damage.
