    Here is that leaf loader after some adjustments. This is no "PRO" setup but I didn't want to spend any more money on this project so I used what I had laying around the garage. Since it came on wheels I'll just use that way for now and if this loader lasts I'll have someone fab up a mount for it. The leaf box, again using materials on hand, isn't large or fancy. I also need to have my mower in the trailer. I only have one property that really needs this set up so the small size will work just fine, I hope :). It works awesome and sucks up wet leaves without a problem. Being only 5hp I was skeptical but it sure sucks well. The impeller doesn't shred as well as the new units but to not have to use a tarp is priceless. Anyone know where to get those blades that some of the expensive units have, such as the "Piranha Blade" on the Billy Goat loaders? If this loader lasts a season or 10 it's fine with me. I'll recoup the costs on it but I feel it'll be around for a while.
