    Very professional. I load the front of my 24 foot enclosed with leaves,then shovel them out the trailers side door. Works for me. I like your rig a lot!

    we just put out flyers in our bills, and took an add out in the paper which many of the clients with leaves are older and would also read the paper so.......

    we are trying to build this service up quite a bit.

    i concur with HP, our leaf trailer is a ready made all in one unit with a 12 in hose and a 27 hp kawi liquid cooled eninge and it is all about grinding up some leaves!

    1/2 is fine as long as your brace it well enough with 2x4's or something. That's what I did and it works fine. Hell even 3/4 will need the same amount of bracing. As long as your not shooting rocks into your leaf box or running into stuff it will be fine.

    Thanks. I have a sheet of the osb crap should i put that on the inside of the frount piece of plywood if i go with the 3/4 just for extra piece of mind because i would hate to blow a rock though the window of my truck! that would ruin a day!!
