    Here's some pics of my leaf trailer set-up. I bought a e-z dumper and put it on my 12' trailer, trailer was a single axle, I added another axle. I have to put the suction/handle on the end of tube, also will have to add a extension of some sort to get leaves into box, maybe a flexible hose or something, any ideas?? I believe this will make the leaf season easier.

    Wriken, I'm curious, why not put the EZ dump in your truck? Is that particular loader not mountable that way (on a swing away hitch)?
