    I Have a 6x12 single axle trailer and would like to modify it so I can fill her up with leaves. Have any of you folks done this? I plan to do it this weekend. Do you have any ideas that would help me get the leaves out quicker?

    Yes I have done that. Either use multiple tarps and fill them up in layers that you can pull off one at a time or another thing you can do is put a piece of something like chain link fence on the bottom with extra sticking up along the front of the trailer. Then you can hook up a chain to the fence and something else and either drive away or have the fence pulled out by a loader, truck etc.

    Before I bought my dump I put plywood inside my the sides of my trailer. I then put a pallet upfront with a tow strap going to the back of the trailer. I would pack them in there as best I could and almost all of them would come out. The guy at the dump would bring his loader over, I would hook the strap up and he would pull the pallet out.
