    Dont have all the parts painted yet, I've been waiting on the Billy Goat green to paint the tranfer tube and discharge extention. It works really well. Sorry for the attachment style. I don't know how to get the pics to the website.

    Hey really like the setup. You sure packed them leaves in there. How do you allow your box to breath. I see some holes on top. Could you explain some. Thanks

    Transfer tube to feed to the box. Supported on both ends and locks ahead out of the box for dumping.

    Box inside. We left it unpainted to see how it would wear, take abuse...and we don't enjoy painting. :) The venting seems to be adequate. You cant see the back vent. Used 1/4 inch square mesh screening. No plugging issues.

    NICE SETUP!!!

    Nice truck too! Don't see too many dumping flat beds.

    How does it do sucking up the dense already bagged debris? Does it try to suck big clumps at a time? Or does it feed and swallow nice and smooth?

    Any blower tube clogs?

    One of these days I'll get a loader and a dumper. Until then, I HATE leaf season with a passion.
