    I have a ez dumper and just completed the box for leaves. I am looking for some ideas on how to mount my billy got 11hp loader. Its a tailgate model but my problem is sometimes i work alone and wouldnt be able to lift the loader on and off the tailgate when I need to dump. A swing away hitch wont work because I have to pull a trailer. Mounting it on the trailer is one option but I don't think 11hp is enought to throw debri through a long shoot. Any ideas or pics would greatly help.

    mounting on the trailer i think would be fine how far do u have to go to throw it in the truck.... cant be more than 4 feet at MAX just get a BIG pipe to blow through something like a large 8in pvc type. make sure its smooth on the inside of the pipe this will allow for faster and smoother flow of the materials. 11hp doesnt seem like much for the other machines we use in the business but think about the wind force and volume that would be created in an 8inx4ft pipe..... ud be surprised how fat it could throw material......

    Mount it on the passengers side of the cab protector. That how I mounted mine.
