    Use blowers and tarps rather than hoses that suck.
    Unless you manage a high class rig with market to pay for it.
    Keep it simple.

    I'm looking to get a good leaf set-up going. A 6x8 trailer with a decent vacuum would hold tons of leaves and make easy money.

    lets see your rigs!

    I've got a 5 x 8 open utility trailer that I use for leaves in autumn. What I do is put (2) 4'x8' sheets of plywood on the sides and (1) 5'x8' sheet at the front. With the gate closed, it's a 6 cubic yard carry-all! The plywood is held together with L-brackets and screws.

    I'm sorry--that's a 4'x5' sheet in the front.
