    I have a 4' by 5' angle iron frame with a hog panel welded to it. I then bolted 3/4" plywood to it. That's held upright in front with a chain attached to the corners. Where I dump has pieces of concrete with cables attached for pull off's

    I would love a dump trailer. This is a new business adventure for me. I have mowed forever but this is the first year for leaf removal. I am just going to see how it goes, and see if I can justify spending another 5 or 6 k

    How long does it take to suck up a those two piles of leaves with that set up?

    I would say maybe 10 minutes maybe a little longer, I don't really pay attention. It didn't really bog down that much. I was pleased with the performance overall. It will suck as fast as I can rake them to it.

    That's awesome. I hope to get enough leaf work to afford one of those. Maybe next year.
