    Hey, Very nice setup!

    I just ordered a billygoat 18hp with the tailgate hanger. I noticed the billygoat
    is bolted to the hanger. So You can't fit the forks into the pockets with the hanger on? I'm planning on using the forks from my kubota to lift billy on and off the truck, but was hoping I could just slide my forks right in.

    I mount my loader on the front of the trailer.

    Any idea what gauge thickness that screen is? It's obviously holding up?

    No front of the truck here, guys. Not a fan of those set-ups personally.

    Anyway, box is about to go back on soon. Been sitting in the shop lot for a year, unused! lol... like a snow plow or powerseeder. 2 months of use then put it away!

    It looks the same as last year, just sitting out in the weather. I do not know the thickness or gauge of the screen. Sorry... All I know is that it's perfect for venting.

    side note question, Perf.

    This year seem to be a more "normal" year via leaf volume, with ample rain and better temps vs. last year's scorching drought.
    But, the ash borer has done some serious damage, and we have properties where once major leaf cleanup has really been affected-as in mulch what's there and go, no pickup required.
    Have you guy's seen this yet?

    That's a real nice set-up! Would look even better with some logos on the sides of the box.

    Hey perf...I talked to you a few weeks ago when we were building our box. Thanks again for the info you passed on. Everything is working beautifully on our set up. On a side note :) Do you have any extra yellow hose off the exhaust going into your box? I need like a 1' piece to extend ours into our box and don't feel like paying for the 6' or 8' extension.
