    Has anyone ever mounted/welded hardware to the front of their trailer so they could install a leaf blower (I am thinking on the frame close to the hitch).....My thinking is the blower could then be used with or without the trailer (without trailer just install into hitch of truck), depending on the situation. Secondly the leaves could be blown into either the truck or the trailer. Thanks

    I did and love the design. I will be doing it a little different next year so that it will swivle 180 degrees so that I can pull debris from both sides.

    Hey Blades, how tall is that box? Do you have problems driving that around?

    7ft tall.... It is my old 5 x12 ft lawn trailer. I bought a new trailer late fall and converted that one for leafs and hauling mulch.. It is 32 cubic feet internally and I have filled it to the top with leafs. When it is like that it is extremely heavy but does fine. I will need new tires next fall the ones on it are wearing quick with all the weight.

    Here's the new service trailer...
