Ok guys. I've been building a leaf box for my 6x10 trailer the last couple of days. It has the 12" sides with expanded metal. Do I need to block this area off or will it be ok to leave it open? What I have done is mounted the plywood sides on top of the rail which gives me a box that is 6x10 5 feet high which should give me a total area of 300 cf or around 11 CY. I've got my eye on a 8HP Billy Goat loader on CL but if all else fails, I'm considering taking the motor and blower off my Agri Fab Mow n Vac and using it. I KNOW...not the best choice, but I'll make do with what I have for right now.
