**I hope this is the right place for this, it seems most appropriate here. If not sorry** I just picked up a 16hp leaf loader yesterday for fall clean up. I got sick of loading overloaded tarps on the truck or trailer and figured it would shred them up nicely. Heres the situation im in now. I can mount it to the truck or tailer with a hitch mount design as some of the models on the market are. Or I can make a good base for it and sit it next to the truck or trailer. Unmounted would be easier in some ways and more mobile. This would require it to either be at the right height or a discharge tube be added to the outlet of the loader. Unlike most of the ones ive seen on here my lesco unit has a square discharge. I want to add a few feet of 8inch tubing so it can be pumped into the truck/trailer. What do you guys recommend to adapt a square discharge to attach (and not be blown off) to the round hose? I could weld up something but im trying to figure up how to go about it. If I could find something square/rectangular --> round I could bolt it or weld it on. Or should I add metal to the square discharge in some spots to make it round enough to attach the tube. Let me know what you guys think, I have some time before I need to put it in use but I wanted to get a move on it before its a rush. I dont really want it on the front A frame of the trailer is it will be a pain to load with the truck so close and will be a problem with turning with the trailer attached. Off topic but similar. How can I go about adapting a 6-8inch intake tube to the 10inch one or the 10 inch inlet? I figure for my own property we have a magnolia tree that drops ENORMOUS amounts of leaves in the spring. If I can use a small easily movable tube and run it across the yard it can be shredded and dumped into my woods (at the rear of my house). This would save countless hours yearly cleaning up and loading trash cans of these damn leaves. Thanks all!
