    I am interested in buying a leaf loader to mount on the truck to load grass and leaf clippings into the dump truck.
    Thanks

    Are you looking to buy new? If so, check out your local dealers. Do you have a Lesco nearby? They sell a nice one and have reasonable prices.

    For what you'd pay in shipping charges, you'd be better off driving to pick it up. These things weigh several hundred lbs.

    The Lesco was just a suggestion because I know they're reasonably priced, but there are others out there that are just as good (some will say better).

    Do you have a regular dealer that you use? If not, pick up the phone book and look under landscape supply or lawn mowers, and call up the dealers listed.

    any power equipment dealer in your area should carry something.theres only one place near me that doesn't sell them.go to the giant vac/billy goat/little wonder websites.they can find a dealer for you

    The sales rep from Lesco sent me some information in the mail today about, seems really nice. Looks like a well built machine from the brochure.
