    Thought I would add some pictures of my leaf setup for this year. We constructed the rear doors of the stakebody to swing open and built a 3' high leaf box above the body. Right now the discharge tube goes over the top of the truck and works well.

    The loader is a giantvac 16 model. It was a tow behind unit that I cut up and mounted to the front of the trailer. I am adding a longer intake tube so we can reach further into the properties. Here is a picture of a small pile we sucked up, the customer made the pile and we were just removing at this house (my foreman in picture). Also I included a picture of dumping the leaves. I got the basic idea of the leaf box from other members on here.


    This site has continued to provide me with a wealth of information and I always research my equipment on here before purchasing. So please keep up the informative posts!

    Thanks!

    Actually we just retro'd the hose over the top for now to see how it would work. I am probably going to run it through the door as it would be more practical as seen on your setup.
